46" Samsung 1080p 8ms LCD TV "LNT-4661F" using HDMI for 360, PS3 and upconverted Wii. Beautiful image when calibrated using Digital Video Essentials disc, Vibrant colors and the best blacks i've seen on an LCD besides the one up model 4665F, it has better blacks but a glossy reflective screen like CRTs which I hate.

18" samsung LCD computer monitor for my comp and 360.

A bit small, but the res and sharpness can't be beat.

Simple, but effective.

this poll is severely flawed

CRT - Can be a regular display type or rear projection or front projection
LCD/LCoS - LCD can be a regular display type or rear projection or front projection... LCoS is rear/front projection only
DLP - DLP is rear or front projection only
Plasma - pretty much the only answer that is clear cut.
Projection - projection what? rear? front? this is already covered by half the other answers
Don't know/Don't care

The problem is the answers are melding two questions into one and doing a poor job of it.

The answers are for the questions "What technology does your tv use" and "what format is your display technology"

What technology does your TV use could be:

What format would be
-Direct Display
-Rear Projection
-Front Projection

You could maybe meld them like this:

-CRT (direct display)
-CRT (Rear Projection)
-CRT (front projection)
-LCD (direct Display)
-LCD/LCoS (rear projection)
-LCD/LCoS (front projection)
-DLP (Rear Projection)
-DLP (Front projection)

I'm usually bothered by polls that are worded incorrectly because the answers become inaccurate and then whole poll becomes useless as a result. sad.gif

Let me reword this poll so you have an idea of what I'm talking about

What is your Favorite Video game?
Crash Bandicoot
Halo 3
Playstation 2
Don't know/Don't care

^that is pretty much exactly how this question is worded when put in the context of display technology

I use a 19" LG LCD Monitor. It has a native resolution of 1440x900, a 3000:1 Dynamic CR, 2ms response time, and uses DVI-D/VGA for input. i keep my 360 Premium hooked in on VGA, and my eMachine hooked into the DVI. my only complaint about using the monitor is that it has a 16:10 contrast ratio. The 360 uses 16:9 contrast resolutions. when i display the 360's signal on it, the image is squished in from the sides, making things look taller and thinner. Luckily it's only noticeable with round things like the xbox or button symbols.

I'm wanting to sign up as a member at the official xbox forum to start a poll, seeing if it's possible to get 16:10 support added in, and how many people would want it. to kill the distortion caused by automatic display scaling, M$ could put black bars on the top and bottom of the picture, or somehow hack in support for true fullscreen picture in games on 16:10 monitors.

But aside from that little tick, the display looks beautiful. RE4 on my PC looks amazing with it's +768p signal, FPSes on my 360 are awesome with a wider screen. for 209 bucks, this was a steal.
