    anyone using a monitor of this spec?

    would you recommend?

    i'm on 22" 1680 x 1050 and sorely tempted to upgrade...

    is it just for xbox? you wont see any difference from a 720p and 1080p at this size, 24" its only when your going over 40" you will see a difference.

    I have 2 24" monitors(one 24 & the other 25) I use for my PC and 360 sometimes. I can confirm that you won't see any difference in 360 games.. not just because the screen is too small to show any noticable difference between 720 and 1080 but there are hardly any 1080p native games. However I couldn't recommend it more for PC use. The difference in screen resolution from 1680 x 1050 to 1920 x 1080 is huge.

    its nice for the price. the higher the contrast ratio the better, its how many colours can be displayed at one time.

    Also lower the response time the better also

    well i have the screen res for xbox at 1680 x 1050 (new option to do since the NXE update), will i notice that much difference at 1080p.

    new monitor i'm looking at is 16:9 too which can only be a bonus.

    That's not what Contrast Ratio means at all, I'm afraid.

    Contrast ratio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "defined as the ratio of the luminance of the brightest color (white) to that of the darkest color (black) that the system is capable of producing. "

    Response time is an issue though - you want somthing <10ms really for less input lag.

    I have a Dell 2407 and it's absoltely fantastic for the xbox.

    I have a Dell 2408, and have my PC on DVI 1, 360 on HDMI and Wii on Component. It's great flicking between inputs depending on what mood I'm in :)

    Mayority of games on 360 (and ps3) run at 720p 1280 x720 so the 360 upscles the image to whatever resolution you have set in the settings on the 360

    Make sure you new monitor has a good resfresh rate and contrast as these wil most likely have more impact on your viewing experience

    Having a 1:1 option on the screen helps as well. So if you choose 720 or 1080 as your res, you get black bars top and bottom. Stops the image being stretched.
