17" Widescreen LCD Monitor - not a LCD TV

Trying to find 17" widescreen monitor to use with my PC and Xbox 360. All I can find are LCD TVs all over £200.

I would of thought with 19" monitors so cheap now it would be easy to find a 17" for close to £100.. but no.


Looking for one with the native res of the 360 which I believe is either 1280x768, 1280x720 or 1366x768.

Thanks for any help

They seem to be few and far between, and as you say - most are LCD TV's. Would a 19" not work for you - much better chances of getting a cheaper one...?

i dont think most of the budget priced monitors have inputs for a games console... you have to spend a bit more for that, correct me if im wrong ;)

Thanks, yea I have looked at 19" monitors but there are 2 problems:-

a) most are 1440x900 so not native 360 resolution which I believe leads to jaggies...
b) Its in the living room, even harder to get girl friend approval for a 19" monitor :roll:

Hi paceCETTA just saw your reply.

The xbox 360 can output to a standard VGA conection so no special input required

well you could always take your 360 apart and build youself an XBOX 360 Laptop :razz:

Somewhere like here:-

However I spent I little more to get a scart + vga + more in one. Save pulling cable in and out of the back of 360.
