Is the Sceptre gaming 22" monitor really good for pc and xbox 360 gaming?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am really thinking about buying this monitor for pc and 360 gaming but just want some advice on what everyone else thinks. This monitor is able to run 1080i and 1080p which is awesome for lcd pc monitors but I am afraid it will be very cheaply made. Currently I have the Acer 19" AL1916W monitor which says it can run HD 720p at 60 and HD 1080i at 30. Does anyone know if I should just stick with the Acer or if I should double up monitors and go for the Sceptre if would be more suitable for the gameplay that I want to go with? Also, is my Acer monitor more than capable of doing what I need to do without spending the extra $350 on a new monitor just to play the 360?

I dont think its enough to warrant a new monitor just for the Xbox 360. Your TV isnt bigger???? I mean why do you want it hooked up to a monitor

Is this the monitor?

Sorry to say, if that's the monitor it is NOT 1080i or 1080p.
Both of those require, and I mean both require a resolution
of 1920x1080.

If you buy that monitor all the 360 will do is downscale the
resolution to 1360 x 768 if you have the VGA cable
like I have. It's been awhile since I set it, but i think
it has the 1080p, but i don't think it has the sceptres
obscure 1680 x 1050.

Save your money, play 720p. or 1280x1024 like me.

Yes, it is REALLY good for PC gaming..not sure about the xbox 360 though. It does do 1080p/i through the HDMI port on the back. I got mine off newegg.
