Hi I'm currently looking for a reasonably priced 23"/26" HDTV-ready LCD for around £800 or less but definitely no more than £1,000. I'm buying one for playing games and DVDs on and want a HDTV compatible set for the future Xbox 360 and PS3 games consoles. It must have at least one component connection, a couple of SCART sockets (one or both RGB enabled) and either D-SUB or DVI/HDMI. I realise the latter two are true HD digital connections and better but the Xbox 360 is said to only support analogue (via component or D-SUB). I'm not too fussed about the normal terrestrial TV picture although I have Sky Digital. It's for the bedroom so anything over 26" is too big. I'm slightly confused over the different aspect ratios but presume that a true 16:9 1366x768 panel is better than a 15:9 1280x768? Is that right bearing in mind that the Xbox 360 will output 720p as standard (1280x720 NTSC/1280x750 PAL). Would a 15:9 screen be better for mapping the pixels 1:1 with small borders at the top and bottom? Presumably the 1366x768 will be stretched, losing clarity, or worse still have a picture frame border around the 1280x720 image! Graphics would obviously look fine stretched but text in menus and on the HUD would presumably look odd stretched? Can anyone put my mind at rest about the differences between the two ratios and if there are any real advantages/disadvantages to owning either especially in relation to console gaming? I've seen three LCDs I like the look of though one of them, the Sharp Aquos LC-26GA5E, has been heavily criticised over on the Xbox forum I visit so I've kind of being put off that despite the fact that the picture on Sharp LCDs is generally highly praised in the AV magazines. The other two are the JVC LT-26DS6BJ, which has a 7ms response time, plenty of connections but is rather expensive at over £1,000 (the cheapest I've seen it), and the Samsung LE-26R51B, which has similar features to the JVC (8ms response time) but is much cheaper at around £700 despite looking horrible with it's black glossy frame. All three LCDs are 1366x768 16:9 panels. I also liked the Sony KLV-26HG2 which is a 15:9 LCD but it lacks D-SUB/DVI or HDMI. Ditto for the KLV-L23M1, a 16:9 1366x768 LCD. They are both expensive but I've heard the WEGA picture is among the best of any LCDs so you get what you pay for I guess. Would any of those LCDs be perfect for what I want or would I be better off waiting? I'm finding it very confusing trying to pick a LCD. If anyone has any of those models, I'd value your opinions especially if you play games on them (Xbox, GameCube or PS2). If anyone has other recommendations, I'm open to those too! Thanks.
