Great Design: 2 New 17" LCDs from LG

LG L1740P: Artistic Series

The 1740P is a perfect mating of style and function, blending state-of-the-art display technology and innovative design. Or at least that's what LG's brochure on this series of monitors says. The effort expended in terms of design is obvious, but the specifications seem a little backward. Of course, since we've learned to be very wary of manufacturers' specifications, we know we need to take a closer look at them.
