Which monitor for xbox360\PC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a Acer AL1917W ( 19" widescreen ) And i hooked up a VGA cable to it, it looks like **** the colors are all washed out on the xbox 360, someone locally is selling a 20" dell Dell E207WFP (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2704,2085310,00.asp) and a 22" Hanns-G HG216D (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,2280014,00.asp). The hanns-G is used but the dell is new. I was thinking of picking up the dell for $155 since I have heard good things about them but it doesn't have a vga port the hanns-g is $180 and has HDMI and vga and dvi. OR would it be wise to just save for a better monitor? or HDTV?

Either way i have a xbox 360 and gta iv sitting around to be played and the 360 looks better on my TV then on my monitor . It could be the microsoft xbox vga cable but i really doubt it. It looks to washed out on grays.

Hanns-G. 360 through HDMI if you have the port and PC through DVI.

Are you using the genuine MSFT cable or one of the many chinese knockoffs?

I would definitely get the hanns-g. The fact that it has HDMI input greatly improves the picture quality from the xbox. Also, you can get a DVI-HDMI cable, and get an input switcher so that you can run your computer through HDMI as well.
