    If a monitor is described as 'HD ready' but has no HD input, what gives?! How can you feed it a HD signal?

    DVI & VGA can carry HD resolutions.

    To Carry the EICTA "HD ready" logo the screen must have HDMI or HDCP capable DVI input as well as a YPbPr input capable of accepting 720p and 1080i signals

    If not it is in breach of EICTA agreeement on use of the logo you can contact them to compalin.

    a lot of screens will state they are hd ready but only have a res of 1600 x .........

    it is a con. just check up on the available inputs and resolutions of the monitors you are looking at.
