I'm looking for a cheap LCD TV or monitor that's under AUD300. Is it possible to get one that's about 19" or so with FULL HD and HDMI/DVI?

honsetly my opion is i would stick with a 17" LCD monitor just for the simple fact that anything bigger than 17" the aspect ratio is 16:10 and not 16:9 meaning that your picture would a little bit distored..i use an 17" lcd monitor and for me its perfect.. and you find for under 250 bucks and the usaulyy come with vga and dvi-d. so if you had a 360 w/hdmi just buy an hdmi to dvi-d adapter or hdmi to dvi-d cable

Are there 17" 16:9 or do you mean just to use 4:3 on a 17"?

ok thanks. I'll look some up. Wouldn't it be a bit small though. What resolution do you run yours at?

i run mine at 1280x720 i think 17 inch is fine. i hate having a steched image.

also bigger monitors resolutions are 1400x900 and 1650x1200 and also 1920x1200. so meaning the resolution you select on the 360 would be 1360x768.
