Great alternative for LCD 17" Review with images

AdvantagesLooks great with hp PC's, Inbuilt Mic, good menu

DisadvantagesAs with all 17" CRT's very deep

"...is they have to be HP Polk Audio speakers. Also the monitor comes with an inbuilt microphone. I gotta admit I thought I would use this feature a lot more than I actually did! It barely noticeable which is great. However, when you do spot it it's got a cool aluminium look cage over it, somehow looks professional. I'm sure this addition would be great for those of you who frequently converse over the net in meetings etc. What’s more the cabling is ..." Read review

the greatest monitor ever?

AdvantagesGreat reliability value for money and stylish

hp monitor revolution!

AdvantagesSimple to use; high quality resolution; tough; versatile, etc

Quick review of HP Pavilion MX70 17 in

"I have had my mx70 for 7 years. The only reason I just bought a new computer was for more memory. My MX70 is still going strong and I've used it constantly. It is now going to a new home where it will give someone else years of excellent service.

New look monitor!

AdvantagesLove the colour and design

DisadvantagesQuite heavy, and very deep!

"Wow...I love the idea of something other than the beige computer tower and monitor. This monitor is a very modern looking blue and silver. The screen is 17". It has a microphone in the top of the monitor which could prove useful (I have not tested it yet). The monitor is also equipt to have Polk audio speakers attached. It displays colours and images quite vividly, with a max. resolution of 1280 by 1024.You can alter the settings via the one ..." Read review
