    You wont get anything decent for that mate I'm afraid......

    isnt there a 20 inch monitor in deals for about 180?

    if not you can easily get a 19 in widescreen for about 130ish....

    For a 360 though, you will need a VERY low response rate to be able to play it properly, otherwise you will get motion blur

    it really depends. You do get what you pay for, but you can pick up a reasonable 20'' widescreen for around £200. If you want one with superior panel quality, you're looking towards the £300-£350 mark

    I personally use a 19'' HannsG i bought for £130, and have no complaints at all using it with my 360

    mate have u got the monitors model number thats more of a price i am looking for!

    yep its HERE A mate of mine actually purchased it from there today, and with delivery it came to £128. Not bad at all. And it has both a DVI and VGA port too, unlike other widescreens for a similar price

    I must say though it looks LOTS nicer in real life than it does in that stock photo on the microdirect site. trust me :thumbsup:

    aint this a pc monitor ????


    I didnt know you could play xbox 360 on an pc monitor :? what connects the 360 to a pc monitor ???

    dont some pc monitors have a better resoultion than hd TVs ? so if hooked up to your 360 shouldnt that mean you get full xbox 360 HD detail through a pc monitor that supports that resoultion

    Yup. You use the VGA cable to hook your Xbox up to a monitor.

    Saw this in PC world today and it looked very sexy: pcworld.co.uk/mar…763
    The picture quality was excellent and they had it on special offer at £150

    Ive heard good things about the Samsung SyncMaster 940BW (infact, hardly heard a bad thing about Sammy Monitors) and it fits in your price range at around £150.

    ps if the tv supports fastext or something that would be an added bonus or teletext or freeview!

    It has teletext (fast text)

    the thing is its a standard tv, i dont want a standard as i already have a 32inch panasonic widescreen ,the reason i want something not too expensive is cus i am moving houses and i want to put in a room just for games and stuff u know wat i mean so i want something slightly flashy with possibility of playing hd movies or the games in good quality!

    ah ryt cool well i need to find out maybe i can use my panasonic 32 inch itll probably still be ok but its nt a new 1

    So you will do HD DVD's on your 32" and 360 on the one you buy :?:

    i want to play games and dvds on a new tv but if i dont get a decent price then il have to use it on the old 32inch

    I dont think you will for £140 ish, anyway what do you want then, standerd or Plasma?

    [SIZE=2]lol i probably stretch myself about 180[/SIZE]

    Original Poster

    probably go up to about 185

    I think you should get a TV now (standered or flasy lol) and play the DVD's on your 32".

    Original Poster

    mite do that im going to have a look and see if i can find a decent lcd tv which is hd ready

    If thats all you want it for then a monitor would be the best buy, all you'll get is a panel with a VGA port and a DVI port. The panel itself will be far better than a similarly priced TV and it will take a High Def signal (doubt there are any TVs in your price range that will).
    A TV would only be the better buy if you were going to use its features, i.e. watch TV on it, connect up DVD players, Sky/Freeview/NTL boxes etc

    Check your PMs, sent you a better explanation (or maybe worse, not too sure :w00t: )
