My friend wants a 17 inch monitor for $150 (thats his limit) and I found an LG Internation LGX70 for $120 and then $29 shipping from newegg which would satisfy his price range. I'm curious if this is a good monitor, or if I should look for something else. And if I should find something else do you guys have any suggestions?
If my response is brief and vague its because the info you provided is too!
You can find much better 17" monitors for that price these days. Sony is having a sale on the cpd e200 for $170. I imagine you can find this or something comparable for less on pricewatch.com or pricegrabber.com. I have cpd e200 and it is great. I like it's sharpness, brightness, contrast, and color better than my samsung 19" 955df.
