I've searched a great deal through Mroogle, and I've come up with a few displays that meet my needs (preferably 150$ or lower, HDMI so I can plug my Xbox 360 in, not too big or too small for a college student, etc), and then I realized that I could find better/cheaper monitors if I went without HDMI. Would it be a pain to use an HDMI->DVI adapter? I know they exist and all, but I'd imagine there would be problems with the whole audio thing...I saw an adapter that separated out the audio (to analog, I assume) and it was expensive, but I could be missing something. The monitors I'm deciding between are a 21.5" Dell or a smaller and a few different Hanns-G monitors with lower resolution that are a bit cheaper. As far as I can tell, both Dell and Hanns-G get good reviews (though Hanns-G is somewhat unknown). http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/...etail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-0921 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...&cm_re=hanns-g_monitor-_-24-254-046-_-Product I could probably post this in some video-phile site, but they'd say I should pay a lot more (150$ is my absolute limit for the actual monitor) and I'm fairly comfortable here at Macrumors There seem to be plenty of threads about various displays, but I wanted to ask about these specific ones and about the HDMI to DVI feasibility. I'd be running the monitor from an Arrandale 13" MBP (hopefully), if it matters.
