"LG Flatron L1710S - best monitor I've bought!"

Like many other peple I decided to buy a flat screen monitor because of a need for space. The old-style monitors really do take up an awful lot of room, and apart from that are both cumbersome and heavy, and not the best things in the world to look at.

The LG1710S 17-inch flat screen monitor I bought was well worth the money at £299 (this was some months ago now so shop around and I'm sure you'll be able to find it cheaper). The screen menu took a bit of getting used to (but then again all navigation systems do) and once I'd familiarised myself with that there were no problems. It worked with my PC instantly and delivers a sharp, easy-on-the-eye view. You can fine-tune the brightness, contrast, colour ratios, everything else you can think of, to a minute degree.

It's not the lightest flat screen monitor in the world but it does ease the pressure on desk space an awful lot, and the silver edges around the sreen look very nice. It comes with the standard video cable which fits into all standard PCs, and really is just plug and play- as easy as that.

The video input on the monitor is behind and underneath the screen area so you don't notice it at all when using the monitor. It makes up slightly fiddly to get to, but if you've screwed the cable in nice and tightly then you shouldn't need to fiddle with it that often anyway.

Easy to use, attractively built and all in all a very good buy. I have had no problems whatsoever with this monitor and now there's more room for the reams of clutter on my desk!

    Good review. Flat screens are definitely the way to go and this particular model is a reasonable price.
