EVGA InterView 1700 Dual Monitor System
While the EVGA InterView is expensive and doesn't offer much for the recreational user, productivity-obsessed business types will be pleased with its features.
The HP vs17 is one of many average-performing, general use LCD monitors; however, its low price and built-in speakers make it worth considering.

Dell UltraSharp 1707FP
With an attractive design, ample adjustability options, and great image quality, the Dell UltraSharp 1707FP is one of the best 17-inch LCD monitors. We're especially impressed with its low price.
The Envision EN7600 won't break any molds, but it performs reasonably well, and it's inexpensive.
In the L1706, HP offers an affordable flat panel with satisfactory image quality, but the display lacks any extra adjustability and inputs. The L1706 will serve office workers well, but other more-adjustable and better-performing monitors are available in the same price range.
The BenQ FP72G+S LCD offers good gaming performance and adjustability but inferior overall image quality.
NEC-Mitsubishi MultiSync LCD1770NX-BK
All the little details are in place, but the so-so image quality and the high price detract from its appeal.
A run-of-the-mill but very adjustable LCD with snap-on accessory cups and photo clips that should appeal to admin assistants and the inveterately sentimental.
LG Flatron L1710S
If you haven't made the jump to a DVI graphics card and you don't need special features such as Landscape-to-Portrait pivot, this budget 17-inch LCD might be right for you.
ViewSonic VX710 LCD monitor
This nicely priced 17-inch LCD from a reputable manufacturer is a good choice for home use, but for gamers and businesspeople, its image quality and adjustability leave a lot to be desired.
