Which one would be better?

20 replies 1 views Edited Jan 10, 2007
I have an LCD monitor with a maximum resolution of 1280x1024, and a CRT monitor with a maximum resolution of 1600x1200. So which one would give me the best picture when hooked up to my Xbox 360? I've heard that LCD monitors are always better, but since my CRT monitor has a much higher resolution, which one should I use? Thanks for any help!

Will they be good enough to offset not being able to use 1080p?

The LCD has a higher contrast ratio, most likely.  Just because the maximum resolution is high, doesn't mean that it will necessarily look better to the human eye.  Contrast ratio is big too.

None, the pixel size on computers and Tv are different, making it look different on a LCD screen.



But both of them are computer monitors. The CRT one just has a much higher resolution.

Why don't you try both and see which looks better yourself?
