Thread: Best monitor for XBox 360?

  1. #1

    Default Best monitor for XBox 360?

    I currently have my Xbox 360 running at 1280x1024 res on my samsung 17" lcd. but I want to use this one jst for the pc.
    so I wannna buy a new display for the 360 nd had my eyes on Samsung P2250. it has full HD resolution aka 1920x1080

    but the prb is i heard all xobx nd ps3 games run at much lower resolutions and are simply upscaled. will it look blurred on such a big screen if the games are upscaled from 720p to fit the screen?
    so is it worth it buying this display?
    if not plz suggest any other models tht wud b better...thnk u

    and one more question, does the picture quality really take a hit if the lcd isn't running at its native resolution? i mean if the aspect ratio is kept correct, the pic shudnt be jagged/stretched etc...but will the picture still be blurry or sth? :S

    No there won't be any problems. You are already playing at a res higher than the games native, do you see any problems?

    nope...it looks awesome. the only prb is tht some games like Assassins Creed II, Batman AA etc. show black bars and are not full screen. But other than that graphics is sharp. COD6 MW2 plays at full screen though :S

    Black bars :S. I din't play any of the games you mentioned, but the games I played, none of them had that. I guess the bars are in place to maintain the aspect ratio.

    Anyway, you won't have any issues at all, all games so far are either 720P or less. So go for it .

    Well I don't know much, but I figured native res is the one which the game itself is made in. Like Halo and CoD4 is 600p, 360 ar PS3 oita ke upscale kore 720p ar 1080p kore. Any res besides the native means that the picture is being upscaled or downscaled (HD to SD).

    I used my current Samsung T190 (19 Inch) to hook up my X3 to it's VGA input using the HD VGA cables, thing is my monitor's native resolution is 1440X900 and the X3 was adjusted to that resolution (No Progressive or Interlace ), and there was much much less jagged/blur picture quality than on my 32 inch LCD TV.

    I peered on the monitor's spec that you mentioned, I guess blurriness, jaggedness anek kom hobe otae cuz it has 1920x1080 native res.

    And about that black bars, yup Aayman is right, that is to maintain aspect ratio.
