HP 2511x for gaming?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, in the market for a monitor upgrade, and I came across this monitor and it seems like it would be perfect for me.

Anyone have any experience with it or know how well it would be for gaming and web browsing?

thanks!

Even though you said you are open to a 24 inch; here is a HP 2311x at staples and the price is looking pretty good on them as well.

what is the input lag ?
post #6 of 6
I'm trying to use it double-duty with my computer and Xbox360. Picture is excellent, no lag to speak of yet. Only problem I'm having is how to get audio to the xbox. I plug my speakers into my computer tower and the 2511x doesn't seem to have an audio jack. Any experience with this.

For purchasing I would check out "gyrojoe" on eBay. I bought two of these monitors from him and they were the best deal I could find.

Help with the audio problem please!!
