Ive been TV for years. The first thing people say is crappy reaponse time/input lag. I want them to sit down with me and show me those things because Ive used cheap tv's/monitors to expensive ones.

You can have a low end tv with lower input latency than a set that costs $10,000. Once you start venturing into low lat displays like DVI-only QNIX/Catleaps, Swift, etc it will become noticeable. Its not like computer displays are a different animal but are more optimized for PC use and lower latencies in general compared to a TV which main focus is quality, quality, and as many inputs as possible for end user so they do not need to think about input latency as much.

If you do not notice it or can compensate for the micro delays without thinking because your so used to it, thats great. some people just cant cope lol

I was still leaning towards the TV until I saw this monitor which just seems to be an awesome price for a 27"

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G5AEZOQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I noticed it says it's DVI port has "High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection" (HDCP) which from what I can tell is some form of piracy prevention. I don't pirate anything but it just seems like another step in the process and where there are steps, things can screw up. Or is it something included on all new monitors and they just felt the need to point it out? I don't want to deal with some bs handshake before I can view anything on my monitor lol

Edit - Ended up finding out what that was and that it's not anything weird, ordered that monitor, should be here in a week or so smile.gif

I had no ides this existed. After looking it up, I found this.

HDCP doesn't care what goes across the cable, as long as that cable is secure.

It does this by creating encrypted keys between the source and the display (called the sink). Enabled repeaters, like receivers, can be in the chain as well. The source and the sink need to be in agreement, understanding their keys, or no content gets transferred. If you've ever hooked up gear and gotten a blank screen (or turned on gear in the wrong order and gotten a blank screen), this HDCP "handshake" is usually the issue.

I think it means you cant put a capture card or DVR between the computer and the monitor and "pirate" content.
