Default which is best hdmi monitor for HDStorm/

As people migrate to HD Storm, the question as to what monitor to use has come up. The advice seems to be to be sure the HDMI input on the monitor works with YUV color space...Is there a list of monitors that meet this spec?
If not, how can one ensure the monitor accepts the Edius HDMI signal?
Perhaps some users can share their working monitor model info.

Default Benq V2400W with HDStorm

The Benq V2400W is a great looking monitor, with good image quality that I bought for $400.

http://benq.com/products/LCD/?product=1313

With HDStorm V2400W supports
1920 x 1080 50i
1440 x 1080 50i.

With HDStorm V2400W does not support
1920 x 1080 25p
1440 x 1080 25p
Standard Definition PAL formats

I have not tested any 60i, 30p and 24p formats in HD or SD.

Yes, Very Simple. Buy an HD-TV, not a computer monitor. They will all look good, some a bit better than others depending on the resolution of your projects video. If the HD-TV is a 1920x1080 native resolution then HD will be pixel for pixel perfect. Though SD material will not look as good on one of these as on a 720p display do to more scaling. Some 720p HD-TV's do a stunning job handling (scaling) a 1080i input, some are not so good. So if you still need SD at times and are looking to save a few $$, then a 720p HD-TV with a great scaler and fast response is your best value. I have proved this at more than one client's site. The other alternative is to get the best 1920x1080 HD-TV and keep that SD CRT broadcast monitor that supports 16:9 for SD work. That is the best of both worlds.

While plasma is technolgy that is struggling to survive (Pioneer announced last week that they are backing out of the plasma TV business) LCD's are getting better and better. Look for 120Hz models that offer much smoother fast motion and LED backlighting for low temperature, low energy use and extra long and consistant life. I offer 720p LCD reference display monitors on my lower systems and a Panasonic 480MHz 720p Plasma on my eXtream Pro system. This Plasma is just smooth and great looking for both SD & HD.

That LCD TV's are getting better (they really need to badly) is a fact, but at present, I would take a Plasma over a LCD any day of the week.

Couldn't agree more, Plasma's any day, (Panasonic) that is.

I am looking for a 120 Hz monitor 20-27" (smaller, better), for HDMI input and 24p display. I am primarily working in 720p.

(I also shoot 1080/24p, but the 720/24p is the primary concern.)

Can you suggest any monitors to look at under $1000. All the 120 Hz monitors I have seen are huge sizes, which I don't need and can't use.
