What is a good 1920x1200 monitor with HDCP support at the moment? I am most concerned about text quality and readability, but I will be playing some games.

the dell 2407 24inch has many inputs propably more than u need and has a HDCP enabled DVI-D connection all 24 inch monitors have 1920x1200 resolution with HDCP it can go 1080p

propably most on these are hdcp enabled

cheers

or if ur a apple head

go for the 23" one and pay 100 bucks more for the logo and one connector

the i personally recommed the dell because it is versatile that any one above it has a DVI-D(HDCP) conection along with VGA, composite, composite(video), S video, has a card reader(u propably dont need it) and 2 USB Ports

u can hook up ur coomputer, ur game console and another computer and another computer with this display

if u want apples products my advice is to wait a while for the refreshed cinema display any time soon

I have the 22inch gateway monitor, I really like it. The 24 inch version offers what you are looking for.

23" Apple or 24" Dell .. both are great monitors.
I don't believe that the cinema displays are hdcp compatible. One that wasn't listed above that is also hdcp compatible and has a bunch of connectors are the benq 24" displays.

cheers.

I had a look today in a store at the 24" Samsung (SyncMaster 245B, it's TN, too). I was worried about how much a good image depends on the angle, but it is ok and I will buy it.

There is a store version of the LG. It is the L246W, as opposed to the L245W sold online. You can get it for $500 + tax at Best Buy right now. That way, if you don't like it you can return it.

I own two of these and I love them.
On the best buy site it lists the model to include a DVI and HDMI port, is this true? for $500 who could resist. I want to use this monitor with my mac pro, and ps3 without having to constantly plug and unplug the inputs.

Also, does this monitor feature an aspect ratio mode? or 1:1 pixel mapping?

Looks like a single HDMI port (http://us.lge.com/products/model/detail/computer products_lcd monitors_windows vista certified_L246WP-BN.jhtml) and they simply ship it with a DVI->HDMI connector (HDMI and DVI carry the same video data).

cheers.
