PS3 has an HDMI out.

You can use an HDMI to DVI cable and connect it to an HDCP-enabled PC monitor...

can't help u bro .. I don't have a ps3 to test it .. but if you say its 720p, then its 1280x720 and its downscaling. keep it in "fill to aspect ratio" and you should get the best possible result for that resolution.

I have 2 HP W2207H's at my place right now. One is staying and the other is going back to the store :P

The service menu shows this info:

On the first one (Rev. ATMB0-120, HSTND-2271-B)
Ver1.00
AU22W - what does this mean?

the second (Rev. ITM003, HSTND-2271-F)

ITMH3.9
MT220WW01-V1

none of the panel codes I saw in here matched up - I've created a thread as well, but figured people might check this ginormous one more often :] Please help!

I live in a small town so I'm left with few options for monitors. The nearest large city is an hour away. I did find the HP 2207h locally, although I can't get info on the panel rev. My guess is that it is a later rev so that would likely be the LG panel right?

It seems that most with the 2207h are happy with it but I haven't seen anyone really comment how good it is with gaming. Specifically one of the later revision panel, not the Samsung panels, which I'm sure they don't have in my town.

this monitor does not use overdrive technology so there is no input lag ... none !!! that's on of the main reasons I chose my w2207h over some 2ms monitor! other than that it's a fast 5ms panel. you won't notice any ghosting!

I returned my w2007. Seems like it doesn't scale properly with Xbox 360... I got an official Microsoft VGA cable and tried it with all resolutions using "Fit to Aspect Ratio" and using the "auto adjust" function. The guy I quoted in this thread had a w2207 but it didn't scale properly with his PS3.

I talked to a guy who has a w2407 though and it scales properly with 360 and PS3.

I've been lurking on this thread for awhile and I've finally replaced my 19" CRT (Iiyama Pro) for a w2007v.

Wow.

It's dead crisp and the colours are flipping good. Can't fault it.

Had to turn vsync on in a couple of games due to tearing (welcome to tft gaming? ) but the games look so vibrant and dead sexy. World in Conflict particulary looks stunning at 1680x1050 with full everything - so sharp.

This monitor seems well suited to TF2 also, put it in photo mode and the colours are brilliant for that game.

Haven't tweaked anything on the monitor as it looks great out the box to me. Just moved the OSD to the left.

So thanks for a great thread, I'm very happy with my purchase - plus it's one of the cheapest 20.1" screens in the UK these days!

Pics don't do justice but here's one

Not sure if you fixed this yet but I just got the hp w2207h at Bestbuy this week and I also have a ATI Radeon 3850 using a DVI to HDMI cable and after installing the ATI Catalyst 8.5 drivers I also saw the same issue as you.

But I fixed it pretty darn quick

Here is how to fix it.

Open up the ATI Catalyst Control Center. Use Advanced view. Then click the + next to DTV (DVI) 3 then click on Scaling Options and just move the little thing all the way to the right which will make it 0% Overscan.

Its that easy

For some reason ATI changed the default settings for Overscan in drivers 8.4 and 8.5.

I guess someone really should report this to ATI so they can make the Overscan setting 0% again for newer ATI drivers to come.

This little change can really drive someone nuts if they don't know how to fix it.

So now you don't have to use VGA anymore and can go back to the DVI to HDMI cable.

Also I think this is known issue but for anyone who has a ATI card with the HDMI Adapter don't use that. The HP W2207h does not like it for some reason. Thats what I heard anyway. Just use a DVI to HDMI cable and you are good to go


I hope I was helpful.

I have only had the HPW2207h for like a day but so far I love it.

I will post back later for what I think of it and maybe get a little info from you guys

I bought this last night I'm returning it because it gave me motion sickness Guess it's just me and back to my P911 Trinitron it's the best LCD I've ever used though but I just couldn't tolerate it for some reason.
Was really looking forward to trying it and having it work out. I turnned all the settings down on my 6600
it's just a focusing problem or something I seem to have with LCDs.

Have you tried non-widescreen tft's? Just wondering if it's because of the field of view angle in games. Or do you mean in applications also? I know some people feel motion sickness in fps games unless they adjust the fov.

Yea I heard of motion sickness in games like Oblivion and Gears of War.
Just surfing the internet I would get sick then had a focusing problem trying to focus on the screen it looks nice and everything. It could be the TN panel



I guess I need to hold out for SED in 2015 or whatever

Yes, but you must get the w2207h model. Make sure it has the "h" at the end to indicate it has the HDMI port...
