    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...

    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.

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    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...

    Damn; i wanna play those two games! How does Resistance and Motorstorm compare to similar 360 games? Is it worth getting a ps3 for those two games? Sadly those component transcoders do not accept 1080p; the H. freq. is too high for them to handle. You should have got an HDMI to vga...

    No. It does not look that good when playing. During the still shots in both GT:HD and GT4, the image is enhanced. I know that for a fact; my own eyes via 1080p, and it is a reported fact.

    Nope; there is no cropping going on. There is no loss of image when playing games and movies. Brightness and Contrast (as well as all the other settings, such as the Landing and Convergence) will very greatly from monitor to monitor. But at the monitors default settings (you have not used...

    Just to clarify what he means. The photo picturs for GT:HD for the ps3 have been enhanced like the where in GT4 for the ps2. The actual playable graphics do not look that good.

    Do not use the 1280x1024 NORMAL screen setting. Use the 1280x1024 WIDESCREEN setting. With the 360 vga 1280x1024, along with a few other resolutions, gives you the option of what format to use: 'Normal' or 'Widescreen'. Again, use the WIDESCREEN setting.

    That is GT4:HD for the ps3 available for free download only. Those still shots are not as good as what they look while playing, unfortunetly. :(

    Correct. No, the image will fill the entire screen. If you want a perfect 16:9 image then you'll have to manually adjust with black bars on top and bottom. But either way you'll end up initially adjusting the screen size fo the fw900 when you first hook up the 360 to it, or any other...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    If you want a perfect 16:9 ratio on a 16:10 monitor, then of course you will have black bars on top and bottom. About 3/4" black bar on top and another on bottom, on the fw900. To make it fill the entire fw900 screen you will have to manually adjust it like you would normally on any other pc...

    No, not the black bars that are on top and bottom of a 4:3 monitor for widescreen content. Scanlines are the hundreds of black lines that run horizontally across the screen on crt monitors. They are very noticable a low resolutions, such as 640x480. But i can still notice them in 720p. They...

    The major improvement was only in contrast. With more contrast i'm able to reduce the brightness to give me a rich, dark black. And in so doing so the colors are more vibrant and rich. I just love having more contrast. There is a 1280x1024 WIDESCREEN option for the 360 vga. I use this...

    No. You cannot convert HDMI digital to vga analog with a simple adapter. You'd have to get an expensive transcoder ($300-400) to do that. The other way is convert component to vga with a transcoder that would be a lot less expensive ($50-80).

    I posted these pictures earlier on in this thread. The images are from when i had already manually adjusted the monitors color 'biases' and 'gains', and increased the contrast via winDAS by increaseing the DRIVE_MAX. I have since then recently increased the contrast more by increasing the...

    Depends. With manually adjusting the color gains and biases on the OSD, and using winDAS to crank the hell out of the contrast, the colors are better, more accurate and more vibrant then what you'll get on any HDTV via component. Not to mention the superior detail that you'll get regardless...

    What i meant was apon further testing with other monitors, the color biases will vary according to your monitor. You are going to have to mess with them and see what looks best on your monitor. The color biases number setting that i gave are what looks best on my monitor. Yours will probably...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    Nope. Just remember to have all three of your color gains maxed at 100, then your color biases will vary according to you monitor; particularily your green and red, while your blue will be around 70-75.

    My brightness has been slowly creeping up as well. I now have my G2 value down to 125 now. And with that i get a true black on my xbox360 at a brightness of 67, and 82 on my PC.

    2405 and xbox360... lines and VGA

    The 360 vga cable works great with the 2405. Better image then what component gives. Just get the original MS 360 vga cable and you'll be good to go.

    I'm getting more overscan with the update then before. About 15% worth of cropping. Not exceptable. Also, the cropping causes anomolies on both sides of the screen that run all the way down vertically. 1280x1024 widescreen for me now on.

    Unfortunately it didn't do a damn thing. There still are large amounts of overscan with accompanying anomalies on the left and right. Why is MS having such a hard time with 1920x1080 res? I’m beginning to wonder if it is some kind of fake psuado 1080p.
