    Well I've just pre ordered the new Xbox to game on and I'm going to keep my PS3 for films and stuff connected up to my Samsung. I have just ordered this monitor. What are your opinions? I'm a total novice when it comes to this kind of stuff, well to be honest gaming in general.... But I try.
    I had a bit of spare cash so I ordered it. My plan is to use it as a monitor for me PC and me Xbox simultaneously using the HDMI and DVI then just switching using the source button.

    wouldnt be good for gaming since the mlg uses 22 inch. and 27 is far from. id reccomend 20-23 inch if your serious for gaming

    Just ordered..

    Just placed my order for a Samsung XL-2370 monitor. Also ordered a pair of those KontrolFreek thingies to try out. The man in brown should be here any moment delivering my new Astro A40s. This is going to be a good week :D

    Monitor

    ive been playing games on PC and when choosing a monitor for gaming or video you will want pay attention the the response time. This will be listed in mS (milliseconds). The faster the better. The response time is the length of time it takes for a pixel to change from white to black to white. I have seen a range of times from 12mS down to 8mS. I don't know if there is anything faster than that. A slow response time may produce 'ghost' images in very fast action game play. Alienware specializes in gamer systems, but I don't know if they sell monitors separately.

    But if you are going for one with tv tuner just get a regular tv monitor.

    I would get one with a 2ms response time. HERE is a nice one. Plus, Viewsonic has been making monitors since the 15" CRT models and been around since 1987.

    EDIT: HERE is another good one. Hell, I might pick this one up myself.

    A lot of people loved viewsonics but say now they are falling a bit far behind. The asus mlg monitor of choice looks nice. I have a samsung and a Viewsonic. Both 21.5. 2ms. Both amazing

    I got the Alienware and the contrast is amazing. It is also very nice looking, has touch buttons and you can adjust the height of it with what is similar to the A40 adjuster.

    I would pay the difference and get THIS one. Samsung is known for making good displays. It's on sale and ends on the 4th of July.
