    Hey,

    Ive been looking to get this screen for a while. It seems amazing, and the price is nice. What i want to do is use it for my computer, my 360, and my tv (since it has so many damn inputs). so anyways, my questions are:

    1. Will this screen be fine ofr using my 360 and tv in hidef mode?

    2. What inputs exactly does the screen have?

    3. Does anybody know anywhere to find it cheaper than from the dell store?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    1. I know it will run the 360. I don't know about hidef, but I am guessing whatever the 360 puts out (720P?) it can handle it. My recommendation is to use the VGA for the 360. The component on the Dell in my experience as well as others isnt very good (very dark, and laggy). I don't know about TV, never done it on one.

    2. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-4335 Picture at the bottom says what it has.

    3. You can look on eBay for a cheaper price. You can also try to find a 20% coupon, which will NOT stack with the 15% off on it now. You can also try to find a $ off amount coupon which WILL stack with a percent off. You can find coupons at a place like slickdeal forums or eBay.

    The native resolution of this display is 1920x1200, so technically it can support 1080 both i and p. You should know that this is *not* a HD television, although it will function as one. The monitor will have to upconvert the signal, so it won't look quite as good as it might on a high quality HDTV.

    Bottom line is that it'll look great on your computer, it'll look good with 1080i/p content, it'll look fine with 720 and DVD-quality content, and it'll probably look pretty bad with SDTV content.
