The word on the street is that LCD prices have stabilized, so now is the time to upgrade your whole office to flat panels. For regular employees, check out some affordable 15-inch LCDs. But for VIPs or spreadsheet jocks who need to stare at long rows of figures all day, a 17-inch display is the better bet. Compaq's TFT7020 offers great quality and a slick look at an affordable price.

Spacey yet earthy
The $779 Compaq TFT7020's two-tone, carbon-and-silver casing is trim, with a space-aged design, as well as a sturdy swivel base that's easy to adjust and won't tip over when you change the screen angle. The LCD offers a decent 1,280x1,024 (SXGA) resolution and a tight .26mm dot pitch. With slightly above-average (150 degrees horizontal, 140 degrees vertical) viewing angles, the display is good for presentations, and Compaq offers movable swing-arm and VESA wall-mount options. Just under the bottom edge of the unit, there's a headphone jack and a volume dial for the two small speakers embedded in the front panel.
Setting up the TFT7020 is easy because the plastic panel on the back of the display flares at the bottom, leaving more room for the signal, audio, and power cables. The TFT7020 has both analog and digital connectors, and both super-VGA and DVI-D cables come in the box.
