I'm pretty sure the U2412M doesn't have 1:1 scaling and will stretch the image to fit the screen when the source isn't in a 16:10 compatible resolution. 


I am not jumping into getting one straight I will browse the web until I find something decent for the ps4..the Samsung monitor isn't a bad monitor and blue rays look good, it's just the picture is hard to get right..it's either too bright or too dull for bf4.. the thing with dell is you get good bang for the buck and I have never seen a bad dell monitor!

The monitor is not recommended for external devices, no... That was one of the reasons too.[http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/review/2011/review-dell-u2412m-part15.html#Video]

I am not trying to steer anyone clear of it. It is great for office and PC use but as a PS guy myself, I had to go through all this a month back when upgrading my own Syncmaster [lol...].

I was looking at the Dell  too.

 

This Asus seems great as well, but again, I don't have the best experience with their panels - http://www.prad.de/en/monitore/review/2011/review-asus-pa238q.html

 

That's about as much help as I can give :] At least here, it's derailed enough already :D

Size difference between the A40 and Xbox One, clearly.

 

The Xbox One is bigger, but the A40 will feel more comfortable when worn.

I thought it was exactly the same as the PC360, but with a USB sound card built in.

Well, after a few minutes, I realized the PS4 is not for me. It's heavy, leaves a dent on the top of my head, and keeps sliding off.

Maybe the Xbox One is more comfortable?

The XB1 is even bigger, heavier and dorkier looking when worn.

The Wii U looks the easiest on the head.

I personally find the HD6x0 models very comfortable. The oval shaped cups do a great job of hugging behind your ears and hold the headphone in place. From memory, I feel that the A40 has a smaller opening in the pads than the Sennheisers. I can't speak to the X1, as I've not experienced it yet.

 

Have you tried stretching the headband over some books for several hours? That often helps reduce clamping and improve comfort. I've had to do this with some headphones.

I have no idea how you even think this will be comfortable. Why on earth would you want this thing, MLE? I imagine it'll be extremely side heavy and put a TON of pressure on the top of your skull. No thanks!

Omg, I'm salivating. I'll sell my left hip for project Christine.
