At staples, they have the Acer P241WAD 24" LCD widescreen Monitor for $359 plus a 12% off customer appreciation coupon equallying $316+tax. regular $449. Does anyone have this monitor or know how good it is?

It has HDMI, DVI, and d-sub(vga), 1920x1200 resolution, 2ms response time, 3000:1 contrast ratio, 3 year warranty. and it's huge @ 24inches, I've been looking for reviews, I've found a few, but does anyone know if this would give me 1080p with my 360 through VGA, does VGA typically have the same performance as the digital connections? I want this solely for my 360 with no ghosting with 2ms.

Any help would be greatly apprieciated asap b/c offer ends saturday 26th. thankyou!!!

Yeah it is....I went ahead and bought this!! I'm glad I did, it's HUGE for a monitor!! Using it over VGA cables with my 360, 16:10 looks just awesome, no noticable distortion whatsoever...unless you're really used to 16:9 you won't notice it. Just wish my 360 had HDMI but still VGA is excellent. ANYONE considering getting an LCD display for exclusive 360/PS3/PC gaming take this thing into consideration! I'd rather use this than most +$1000 HDTVs simply b/c you are supposed to sit like 2-3 feet from a monitor due to it's smaller pixels and a 24 inch display looks HUGE from that distance, and you can just see more details up closer like this. I'll try and get a picture up tomorrow, it looks awesome as well.

You might be able to save some money if you order it online once this deal starts and take this one back to staples (if you can still do it and if it doesn't go out of stock)
