The first day I got the Xim I used a 42" LCD TV... I did horrible plus it didn't feel right.

Moved over to a 22" LCD Acer monitor and have been rocking that ever since. Everything looks a lot sharper and it feels better. It's awesome.

27" Monitor with HDMI input which let's me play at my desk instead of trying to do a couch setup. I can't imagine getting the most out of my XIM3 any other way.

Its not a bigger is better situation for me, or anytype of retarded bragging rights for having a big tv, I simply like sitting back on my couch from a good distance and playing story based games with a theater setup. That plus movies and stuff. Multiplayer just gets sucked into the equation and I dont bother switching to a different setup for it.

This.

To me, nothing is better than sitting in my glider with my lap table setup playing Fallout or Blops with full surround sound.  I sit at a desk all day long.  I sure as heck don't want to when I get home.

I switch between a 24" monitor w/the ax720s and a 65" with full surround. I'd say each has its pros and cons. If I have any buddies over, or I just want to relax, I'll be on the big set. However, if I'm playing for keeps, I'll definitely be at my desk. A good chair forces proper posture and thus should allow for better neuromuscular function - typically on a couch people have tendency to slouch. That is part of the reason you may feel more alert/concentrated at your desk. The neuromuscular system is sooooooo often overlooked...

Totally agree. I started with my big assed plasma and struggled. Switched to a cheapo 22" TV and it was a revelation. Complicated my setup but I now play at my kitchen breakfast bar on the kitchen tv. My son plays on the big plasma :)

Usin a 2ms LG Monitor. Fairly new but no XIM3 yet to give feedback about. I dont think I should have a problem though.
