Hey Guys Im really Confused because i wish to connect a PS3 to a LCD Monitor. I know all about HDCP but i dont know which LCD monitor will run it best. I dont care about LCD TV's as i dont have an antenna and i have a nice tv in the lounge. I wish to keep my PS3 in my bedroom. Im thinking about getting the PROVIEW 22inch FV2226W ([Register or Login to view links])
or Possible the samsung 205bw ([Register or Login to view links])
which looks nicer but the Proview has a higher contrast ratio but im not sure which one the PS3 will look the best on. Please Someone help.
Or if someone has any other Monitors in mind please tell me
Well, first of all many people are feeling this animosity towards HDCP, I know I am. It doesn't allow me to use my ps3 on my non-hdcp monitor. It is possible to bypass HDCP, and its been done. However its expensive, more so than even buying a new monitor.
On the Monitors: There is not usually a better monitor in = price ranges. You just have to know what you're looking for through all the variales. In an LCD monitor your going to want the high contrast ratio, 1080p (Higher Resolution), Viewing angles (depending on how it will be used), pixel count, low response time, etc. Just filter through these variables and figure out things like, rather have viewing angle or resolution and things like that. Make your own decision on what fits you.
I personally think Samsung makes a good monitor, expensive though. The other monitor will give you more bang for your buck.
It's what I'm using. Got it the day after Thanksgiving for $180 at Staples. bought a hdmi to dvi cable on ebay for $7. popped in Talladega Nights, set resolution to 1080p, looked awesome. Specs are 1600x1050, but it does display 1080p and pops up a little window that says input is not optimum resolution, hit menu button and it goes away. 205bw very highly recommended. My PS3 is in about 30 pieces now. I'm using the Samsung monitor and building a PS3 laptop ala Ben Heckendorn's 360 laptop.
