    I posted a thread about an HDTV yesterday, but I've been hearing that I should just get this monitor for what I want to do (Gaming + Mac Mini). I've heard that this is the best monitor out right now (putting the expensive ACD's aside).

    So, any user opinions out there who use this for their Mac and/or Xbox 360? Also, which resolution would I use for my Mac Mini if I purcahased this beast?

    Thank you. :D

    I bought one this week, I'd been holding out for the 2407 (as it supports HDCP) but apparently it's plagued with issues.

    so yes, I currently have a 2405 hooked up to my iMac and my 360, it is fan-freakin-tastic!
    I run it at 1080i on my 360, and it's native 1920x1200 on my iMac, I'm not sure what the Mini's best settings would be, but after less than a week of use I can say this is the best flatscreen monitor I have ever owned.

    How do you run the 360 at 1080i with the monitor? Can you tell me the steps? Also, are you using the VGA or Component cables with your 360. Thanks! (^_^)
