Hello, I need a cheap lcd for xbox..would a 19in be too small to play it on?

that can work. but I have a '42 LG. personally, '19 would suck for me. try and get a '32. that'd be pretty good. not sure about price, but '24-'32 would work just fine.

I play my 360 on a SDTV that is very close to 19 inches. Some games have unreadable text (Dead Rising is a prime example) but it happens on bigger TVs as well. Aside from that, it looks and works great.

Great, I think I will just go with the 19 in... I was worried about being able to read things..I know on analog tvs you can barely read anything..so as long as I can read things then I will be fine...I can only swing about 200.00...so thats why I was looking at 19 in..so with the hdmi cable the picture will be just as clear?

It will be the same as if not better than a bigger t.v because the pixels are usually closer together and smaller on small screens.

Yeah you could get a 19 inch for 200 dollars or less maybe. It will look clear with the hdmi cable also.

Go with a monitor instead. Way cheaper than an LCD TV and a whole lot better. I have a 19" Widescreen ACER Monitor and Love it! If you want a tv for all the inputs/whatever. I might recommend a tad bigger one, maybe 22-24"?

depends, if your not going to play splitscreen 19" is fine, splitscreen you start having a few size issues

yeh, a VGA cable or if the screen is new enough, it might have HDMI

I prefer a smaller screen, because it is harder to focus on the image on a larger screen.

But yeah you could get a 22" for less than 200$

Thats because its SD. I have a 19inch LCD for my room, and sitting a few feet away from it is fine. Its not going to work from across the room.

I have a 54' T.v., It's kind of cool seeing a giant picture of your character. I think a 19' would be fine, kind of small but, it should still work.

your TV is 54 feet? damn, that must be the largest TV ever made

I have a 32" LCD. I think that's enough.

Iplay my 360 on my 24 inch Hp Monitor and my 42 Toshiba for my Ps3 cause of the blue ray

19" is a good size for xbox 360, it's not too small at all. I had 19" in my bedroom for over a year before my TV died on the 13th month (12 month warranty...RAAAGGGEEE.) Now I have a 22" TV and I have to say that it's better, and not that much more expensive either :)

anything that is 24" and up is good, as long as it's windscreen, 3:4 will make you go blind
