Explosive Labs plays with the Samsung SyncMaster 172W 17" TFT Monitor...
It's pretty good but I'd get a regular
size 17" LCD myself.
Our first venture into the display segment is Samsung's SyncMaster 172w,
which is a 17" TFT monitor with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. This is
one of the latest monitors Samsung has introduced into their TFT line which
ranges from 15" - 24" (The 24" having a 16:9 widescreen aspect
ratio as well). The SyncMaster 172w features a 17" viewable screen, already
mentioned 16:9 aspect ratio, a 1280 x 768 native resolution and comes with analog
and digital (DVI) inputs, and a 400:1 contrast ratio just to name a few. One
of the more pleasant features of the 172w has to be it's $630USD price tag,
which is moderate compared to many of its peers.
