Hey, I'm looking for a monitor that has an HDMI input port so I can connect my 360 to it. I looked on Dell's site, but I couldn't find any.
I am looking at best buy, but its hard to look for a monitor with hdmi input, can anyone help me? Does anyone have a specific monitor that they have used for their 360/PS3 and has worked well?

Never seen a monitor with HDMI (not say they arent out there, but never seen one). There are 26" lcd tv's with them.

You obviously haven't looked very many places. There are quite a few monitors with HDMI inputs from Dell, LG, Hannspree, HP, Gateway, and others now that HDMI is a standard option on all multi-media notebooks and PCs. Most have a single HDMI port in place of a DVI port but some have both HDMI and DVI along with VGA. Find something that fits your budget. You'd still be better off using an HDTV but if you are short on cash and space, an LCD monitor is the perfect substitute. I have had great results with my HP w2338h which normally sells for around $250. It's a 23-inch monitor. HP has 25 and 27-inch models as well but the 27-inch has some issues due to it's size. The 25-inch can be had for $300.

I agree with Lex. There are alot of monitors out there that have HDMI ports. Dell usually only offers it on their larger monitors 24" and up. Acer has several models out with HDMI.
I have a 22" Acer Ferrai model that has HDMI. I have my Xbox 360 connected via HDMI and run the sound through my 7.1 Harmon Kardon Receiver.
Samsung has monitors with hdmi.

All you need to do is buy a HDMI to DVI cable/adapter, and any monitor will work just fine. You don't need to spend the extra money for a HDTV, a monitor works great with no need for a TV tuner.
