I got one of these last week, at a higher price.
Great monitor. Height adjustable stand is a great bonus, not many have this at this size. The only negative i've found is a very slight backlight bleed on black screens.

does this have a vga or a dvi connector can it be good for the xbox 360
It has DVI and VGA interfaces - you can use it with your Xbox 360 as long as you have the 360 VGA cable.
am I the only one who thinks 1680 x 1050 is too high a res for 20" screen? just you might want to check you can actually read stuff from a decent distance or get some new contact lenses first
do u need to get a graphics card to play xbox 360
An Xbox 360 already has a graphics card.

1680x1050 looks fine to me, and if the text is too small for you, you can easily make it bigger.
Oh Ryt So I Wont Have To Mess Around With The Settings If I Connected It To My Pc???
Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking.

You can connect this monitor to your PC via DVI or VGA just as you do with any monitor, you would then need to set the display settings to the right size 1680x1050.

You can also connect it to the Xbox 360 via the VGA cable, you may have to fiddle with the display setting on the 360 to get the best display as 1680x1050 isn't on the list, so pick whichever is the closest to it.
oh ryt ok so even if i did connect this pc via dvi or vga would the display be good??

how good is this btw??
in one review it states it looks good providing u have a dvi capable graphics card now how do i check what mine is

look at the back of your PC.. if you see a big white socket, you got DVI. small blue socket = VGA.

here's more info:…DVI
