    both of those are 1920x1200 resolution so not technically "FullHD" (which is 1920x1080)

    they are 16:10 ratio instead of 16:9 so how they would deal with PS3 / 360 I don't know - either your picture will be stretched or there'll be black borders top and bottom

    If the monitor/TV has 1:1 pixel mapping, it should be OK I reckon.

    add46.88, the Acer seems quite expensive for a 24" standalone TN-based monitor. You can get a 24" monitor-TV for £299 @ Amazon:Samsung T240HD 24 inch Widescreen 5ms Multimedia Gloss LCD/TV Monitor *with TV Tuner * | Full details/specs @ Samsung. I'm sure it'll have 1:1 pixel mapping, but do your research before buying.

    Another to consider is the 28" HannsG HG281D/P for ~£300 too.

    Edit: Couple of 24" Full-HD 16:9 monitors for £225 & £250 respectively:
    24" Dell S2409W HD Widescreen Monitor 1920x1080 HDMI 16:9 ratio @ Scan
    Acer 24" Wide 16:9 LCD TFT Monitor FHD, 2ms,40000:1, MM, DVI w/HDCP, HDMI TCO03 Black glossy @ Amazon
