Which LCD TV for 360 Xboxing?
Looking for a decent screen to use for Xbox 360 - the wife has insisted Xbox 360 departs bedroom but present LCD TV stays where it is so she can watch TV in bed and not me running people over in GTA4 or blowing them up with rocket launchers...
So, what do I spend my money on? I was thinking of something that I can hook both my main PC up to as well as the 360 Xbox in the spare bedroom. Been looking at up to 32", etc, but main concern is having the best possible viewing scenario for BOTH PC USE AND GAMING.
What do you have at home or would you recommend? The budget is £400 max.
Don't tell the wife!

I like the iiyamma monitors, their latest one has HDMI and DVI and VGA so your able to have Xbox360 via HDMI at 1080 and have your PC attatched also
24" is pretty good... and the price is good too
26" http://www.iiyama.com/en_GB/Product/...t/152#showtab2 (DVI and HDMI) - £ 279 SRP ex VAT
24" http://www.iiyama.com/en_GB/Product/.../2/product/159 (HDMI - 1080p)

I use a 37" tv in my bedroom, use a hdmi/dvi for pc and hdmi for the xbox. Works really well. HDMI xbox just looks awesome, the pc is a little ropey but hey DVI to HDMI really isn't going to be brill.

Yes, the the 360 Xbox is an Elite with HDMI.
Was thinking of going no more than 32" to stop the PC display looking too ropey?

I'm sorry I don't do roman numerals - I was forced to do Latin at school

I have mine on a Samsung LE32R....somethingorother. Looks superb, and with the 5.1 system it rocks!

Samsung and Sony's I can recommend. That's what I use with my PS3, but providing your XBOX has HDMI it should perform the same.

- Rep Power
HP L2475w is a good monitor though no speakers sadly, I normally play on an HP 2207w with HDMI and that is very good and has speakers!

I would suggest Viewsonic or Iiyama 26" TFT's. Support 1080p, VGA and HDMI for your Xbox, and VGA/DVI for your PC. £300.
Admittedly a fair bit smaller than a 32" TV but frankly £400 32" TV's dont support 1080p resolutions - so are less good for viewing PC and Xbox.
