Summary: Jan 2007 sales, UK. It was a toss up between this and a 19" Samsung. The LG had the extra inch (1680x1050 compared to 1440x990 - an extra £50) which perfectly matches the native resolution of my 20" intel iMac, so I went with it for the desktop extention. The Samsung did have component input, which meant I could have watched HD video direct from my Sony camcorder, but on balance the LG was best for me.
Pros: DVI-HDCP input, hi-res display for extending my iMac desktop, very well-built and looks good
Cons: No component input (CNet review incorrect), so no HD from my Sony HDR-HC1
