Any decent LCD monitors with component inputs for xBox 360...

... or is it impossible to get a good screen that will double up as a PC monitor and gaming screen? Thinking of selling my beloved Samsung Syncmaster 206BW so that I can get one of these instead.

Thanks - any links appreciated. Looking for a 20" screen or bigger.

Thanks faevilangel - but should have said that I want a 20" minimum screen. Sounds like yours is an LCD TV rather than a monitor though, right?

Rep added!

I'm just away to buy one of the following:

or

both are excellent, and the Samsung has £20 cashback.... But can't decide which one!! You get one, I will get the other and I will swap you when I realise you got the better one!

Excellent - I'll buy the cheapest one then :) Going to check these out now :thumbsup:

Btw, re the VGA - the only reason I wanted component is that with the VGA I can't play the compatible xbox games. Bought a big collection of them and none of them work!!

Big question on either of these monitors though is do they have both computer (16:10) and television (16:9) widescreen? From what i've been reading, we want the latter to make 360 games play without being stretched? Can't see anything in the specs to confirm this - baz?

I think I know what you're after, the likes of the Samsung SM2032MW (20") SM932MW (19") or the LG M198WA (19") M208WA (20") M228WA (22") all without a digital tuner and subsequently almost discontinued by the major retailers.

M198WD(P) and M228WD are the replacement models with a digital tuner, hence more expensive.

* My SM932MW is 16:10.

oh sorry the "Syncmaster 206BW ", it stretches out the picture when you plug an xbox in, but Its got HDCP, which works well for the PS3 ( aint ever plugged a PS3 in it though)
