Found 12th Dec 2007
Really struggling to decide what lcd to get to play my ps3 on. Looking to pay between £150-£200. Would like one with high contrast ratio if poss.

Should i get a monitor with DVI-D or HDMI?

OR

Should i get a lcd tv with hdmi output?

I am looking for one around 20"-22"

Im considering getting the Hanns-G 21.6" widescreen monitor from ebuyer.com for £140.

Not bothered about anything but playing ps3 on it.

Whats the problem with these monitors stretching the ps3 resolution? Have heard bad reviews that say it spoils the gameplay at 720p because it stretches to fit the screens size.

Need one in time for Xmas.

Thanks to all posts

I replaced my monitor with this Samsung model and It's a great item. Builtin TV tuner, with Analog RGB, DVI, VGA, HDMI , Composite, S-video. It's HD ready so you can expect to get the best picture out of your PS3.
Monitor is in gloss black colour which matches PS3.
Only £15 more than your budges.

Thanks for the replys. Ended up going for this one for a bigger screen size. Does anyone know much about it?

Decided this one because of the 3000:1 contrast. It only has dvi-d though so will this affect my ps3 picture when using a hdmi - dvi-d cable?

Thanks.

Ok,been doing a bit of research. Apparently, DVI will not affect picture quality, however, it does not carry sound so another connection for sound will be neeed. I am no expert so ignore me if i am wrong!

yeah your right. ****** i just assumed that the dvi-d lead would carry sound through it. Have to go and fork out on some speakers

I would recommend paying extra and at least getting 32" LCD - would be about £350 - £400 but the difference in gameplay is worth it.

Ebuyer have a Maxim 32" which will get 1080i from the PS3 dor £269.68 -

Also HDMI every time - quality of sound and picture is much better. Lidl do a HDMI cable, gold coated , for £4.99 instore. Or for a cheaper alternative £2,99 at cable universe -
