    just wondering which brand is better in terms of quality for using the imac 27" as a monitor for the 360?

    Also when the refresh comes will it still work?

    Thanks

    Av360 hands down -- it supports 1080p. Check out my thread -- http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=962633

    I'm also wondering if there is any difference in quality.

    Is the 720p output a hardware limitation?:confused:

    From what I've read through various forums, the limitation exists on the iMac. It can't handle 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution input via the Mini DisplayPort. Unfortunately, it can only handle 720p (1280 × 720) or the native iMac resolution of 2560 x 1440.

    Weird, because the iMac display can technically display 1920 x 1080.

    It's a pity that these devices are only 66% of what they could be. Shame.

    Hmm. I am wondering the same thing.

    Has anyone heard of the Atlona AT-HD620?? Does that display 1080p on the iMac??
