    just got a 360 and will be getting a new 26 inch lcd for it
    just wanted to know that will hdmi be better than component for this screen size?

    With a screen size that small, you won't see a huge difference between Component and HDMI.

    I use component for my 26" AND my 45" , maybe its my eyes but it just seems so much brighter and clearer than HDMI!
    When the need arises, anything and everything becomes a hammer!

    It appears that way, but us not true. HDMI is digital, so you get the ACTUAL picture, not an ANALOG one. I have a 60" and 73" and the HDMI is crisper, and more vibrant. Component, the TV has to do more of the work to display the picture.

    My kids want those. I have to buy a set for one, then he pays me back. Wife lost a bet to him, not to buy them for him, but to buy them NOW, and he can pay later...

    I just got the cheap $60 wired ones and they're pretty sweet. Even just for talking to people while playing. You don't have chat in one ear and game in the other. Helps to listen for people too which I think is fair because if you were say hiding from someone in real life you would listen for their footsteps to know where they are.
