VP171b

It's just like watching TV-only more convenient. The 14.3-pound VP171b flat-panel display features a high-definition screen with an ultraslim bezel suitable for tilting and stacking options, making it a great desktop or wall-hanging display. This 17-inch LCD combines SXGA (1,280 x 1,024) resolution with a contrast ratio of 500 to 1 on an antiglare surface. It's so sharp, it even accepts HDTV signals and 16-millisecond video response, for high-definition, full-motion images as well as a variety of analog and digital inputs.
