    21.5 1080p vs 23.6 1080p wanting to buy monitor for Ps3

    Ghosting, input lag, contrast ratio, colors, etc. should be your criteria for buying a monitor for gaming...not so much the size of the display.

    Acer H243H vs. Asus MS246H

    I am trying to decide between these exact two monitors as well. I currently game on a sony fw900 crt monitor. While i know no lcd will match the fw900, I'm looking for a reasonable gaming lcd for console gaming. I just bought the sammy f2380 lcd, and while it is a great overall lcd, it sucks...

    What was bad with their eproms? And i assume you used winDAS to keep your monitor in good health? I have to periodically use winDAS on both my trinitron tubes. G420S and FW900. Both were made in 2002. With winDAS i have to keep on lowering the G2 value, and increase the contrast to keep...

    The monitor looks to be in very good condition from those images. Anyway, for hell sake take the short trip and chances are you'll end up with a great monitor. If not you'll end up just wasting only 4-5 hrs of your life. Do it!

    Accurate IT would not be an option for me, they are a freaking rip off for fw900's in grade -A condition. I bought mine off ebay for $350 shipped. It has a perfect screen (no color problems or scratches). It did get a cracked case corner when shipped, though. Best bet still is ebay, and in...

    Don't get me wrong, i love this monitor and have been enjoying mine for quite some time now, but i cannot believe that people are spending over $500 for them. $400 is max for me.

    I could care less about 1080p, but i would have though 720p would have been a must. Just goes to show that resolution is not the most import thing. But wouldn't it be better to set your ps3 and 360 res to 720p, so the games native res is not being scaled twice? Just a thought. P.S. I sent...

    Very nice, the only problem i have with those HDTV is the very LOW native resolution: High-Definition Resolution - 1024 x 768

    By USED, i meant: NOT NEW. And I still consider REFURBISHED used. But anyway, good luck with your monitor. Hopefully there is no problems with it. And good idea on painting the shell. I've thought about painting it black also, but too much of a pain taking the shell completely off.

    Yes, i already have the HP version. I like it a lot, but that was only after i tweaked the hell out of the colors via winDAS. I'm looking for another one so i don't have to lug it around between my two places. But i won't pay more then $300 for one. $500 is about the same price for a new...

    For $500? That is a little steep.

    Thanks for the reply. Were you playing in 1080p? Would you mind testing out 480p for me? Thanks again...

    I'm seriously considering buy this as my first LCD for gaming. I have previously been playing on a 24" Sony Fw900, of which is perfect. But i'm ready to switch over to the LCD dark side. Anyway i also want to use it for my 360, but have some reservations from some of the post here concerning...

    He said GTA4, in reference to what you typed about GTA4, not MGS4. But anyway....have you looked into those HDMI to VGA transcoders? They do true 1080p.

    It is most definitely a hardware issue. The ps3 does not have a scaler chip in it, like the 360 does. So unless each ps3 game is developed for every resolution, then those games that are not developed for 1080i, etc. will not run at those resolutions. A firmware update cannot fix this. Most...
