I needed a couple 17" LCD monitors for doing some 3d visualization work. Man these are some sweet monitors for the price. I am pretty happy. I just picked up 2 17" LCD monitors for the price I paid for 1 15" LCD 3 years ago.
My first choice was some $199 balance monitors from Walmart. I took them back in about 1 hour. Pure junk. If you moved your head more than 2"(i am not joking) the picture turned pink or blue whatever way you went it turned a different color. These monitors for $30 more are about 1000% times better.
