Summary: About a year ago I built my dream machine and when looking around for a monitor I stumbled upon this beauty. I love the sleek Art Deco-esque design and it went well with my desk. (not to mention my geforce 7800GTX) after using it for about 3 days I came to the conclusion that if I had another DVI port on my graphics card I might as well put it to use so I purchased another of these monitors.
Summary: Amazing, truly amazing. This monitor is the greatest LCD I have ever seen. I needed to replace my CRT with an LCD because the radiation coming off of the CRT gave me constant headaches. I was reluctant to switch to an LCD though because I heard that their color saturation and image quality was far inferior to "tubes". The LG Flatron L1720P was a pretty expensive monitor when I bought it but I just couldnt believe how great its image looked.
Summary: I recieved a $200 gift card for Best Buy for Christmas. I also got many new computer games. The CRT 17" monitor I had at the time made me take breaks from playing every 20 min. due to the strain on my eyes. So later Christmas week I went to Best Buy and a Sony LCD "17 monitor caught my eye. The Sony had a $400 price tag. As I was walking to the checkout desk I spotted an equal quality monitor for $330. That monitor was the LG LCD 17".
Summary: Similar to a previous review, I purchased this at Best Buy and am very pleased with it. I had the store hook one up to a PC instead of the normal monitor display as the signal is VERY bad due to extension cables and splitting. The visual appearance of the monitor is good, very bright colors, built in USB, etc. The inclusing of a DVI connector is nice as well, and it has a source button so you could run two machines to one monitor if so desired.
Summary: I was skeptical about getting an LCD for gaming, but my CRT was making my eyes tired so I figured it was time for a change. I did a ton of research and read many, many reviews in magazines(like Maximum PC) and online. I was all set to order a Samsung 172X with 12ms response time, when I came across the L1720P on sale at Best Buy. tHE 16ms repsone time and good LG reputation caught my attention.
Summary: I bought this display for my main gaming machine and I am very happy with it. The display is bright, sharp and fast. It has a 16ms response time, which is great for gaming/video. I have never seen any ghosting with this monitor and I've tried all the latest games, including FarCry and UT2004. The display includes DVI input and a cable, which a lot of other LCDs don't bother. One nice feature is there no power brick for the monitor.
After buying and returning 3 Sony displays, this is the best

Summary: I thought that investing in a pricey Sony lcd monitor (17 inch "HX" model for over $650.00) would guarantee quality and excellent performance. The first Sony HX totally sucked because the text was at time illegible, and the "moire" effect (the constant ripples scrolling diagonally on the screen) was so very distracting. I thought it was defective and exchanged it for another one.

Summary: Hallo liebe Leser, seit einigen Monaten benutze ich jetzt den TFT Monitor LG L1720P und möchte euch kurz meine Erfahrungen damit schildern. Ich habe schon immer ein Auge auf Flachbildschirme geworfen, da ich das Flimmern und die schlechte Lesbarkeit meines alten Röhrenmonitors satt war. Durch einige Testberichte und Empfehlungen von Bekannten bin ich schließlich zu dem Entschluss gekommen, mir dieses Modell zuzulegen.
Pros: Sehr gute Bildqualität, edles Design
Cons: Nur bedingt für Filme geeignet, steht etwas wackelig
