I was also looking at a less expensive one the 2450. Which only has DVI.
What woudl be required to hook a ps3 (which I currently do not have lol) up to the 2453? Some kind of sound convertors? The Monitor would be primarily for computer rig, extra monitor in multi-monitor setup, but being able to attach a console to it is definitley useful and there's no way I'd ever get some monitor/telly Just for console.
Since the 2453 has built in speakers you just only need to hook the monitor to the ps3 via a hdmi cable and you'll be good.
Well (no offense) but it seems like werner's suggestion was ludicrous and unnecessary and...dumb., especially because he provided no reason other than mere personal preference (an absolutely useless criteria) for the 2331 over the viewsonic. If the 2453 works with ps3. But are you CERTAIN that it would work? I don't even have a ps3 at present, just want to option with a monitor to connect and this looks good.
As far as I can tell werner's suggestion was just "meh, I don't care if the monitor you suggested (2453) works, here's one I like" which is a contribution so useless it actually detracts from this thread!
Unless someone can provide evidence of 2453 definitely being incompatible...
By the way I was deciding between Viewsonic 2453 and lower viewsonic models. It's NJEITHER
I found ASUS 248H it's 24-inch 199. wall-mountable, built-in speakers 2ms response time (Say as the 208 2353 viewsonic) AND AND AND it's got all three data input modes hdmi, vga, dvi. So psyched. over 94% certaintly, close to 100% that that's the monitor investment I'm getting. SWEET!
