Ignore what's been said, it WILL work with the PS3, it IS HDCP compliant and you CAN use an HDMI-DVI cable. I have the Samsung Syncmaster 215tw which is older than yours but also 1680x1050. For 720p it's not too good as the colours look washed out and the screen is streched not upscaled, but for 1080p footage it looks great... pixel perfect although the picture is downscaled to 1680x1050. Yours is newer than mine (I think) so my 720p comment might not apply as they may have fixed it.
I'm thinking of getting a Samsung monitor for my PS3 but if it's resolution is 1680 x 1050 (22" LCD) can I run it on 1080p or 1080i or should I just run it on something lower??? Samsung says it can run full HD but seeing as it's 1050p and not 1080p i'm not too sure. Plus, anyone else have one and know whether its worth buying for 150 quid (it's a Samsung SyncMaster 2253BW)??? Thanks.............Message Edited by cali_101 on 17-08-2008 10:10 PM

Just google the model number and 'HDCP' which is what I did and there were plenty of results stating that it was HDCP compliant... if my one is then yours has to be.
Ok, thanks... Ordering it now..... The thing is, Samsung's customer services said that it is not HDCP Compliant.. but on their website it says that it is.. I'm confused! Also, if it works for the 360 really well (i read it in a review) then why wouldn't it work with the PS3.Message Edited by cali_101 on 20-08-2008 06:58 PM

Have you tuned on or off the PS1/PS2 video upscaling? Which ever option you have it set at, then reverse it and see if the problem persists, please not this will apply to DVD playback as well.
now i have the monitor and the picture is great but when playing ps1 or ps2 games the screen just tells me that it is the wrong resolution and it gives me a blank screen. help!!!

So far the pixel density technology allows the smallest monitor to support full HD is 24 inches. At the 24 inch mark I've seen monitors and televisions capable of 1920 x 1200 resoulution which is suffice for 1080p, under this is 22 inch (and 23 inch) which supports a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050, soon the technology will increase and smaller screen will be capable of the 1080p pixel density and clarity but at the moment, the safe 1080 sizes start from about 24 inches.
i have a WSXGA+ (1680x1050) 15.4ins screen on my laptop
