Summary: The Sony SDM-HS73 17" monitor has a very sleek look to it. It seems to be larger that 17" when watching it. Great resolution for the price, and a greater viewing angle that other LCD monitors that I have used. Great tilting angle too, and I like the removable panel at the rear for hiding cables and connections. I purchased the item to go with a VAIO desktop tower that was grey and silver, and the white and grey finish matches perfectly.
