Hitachi CML174SXW

Hitachi 17IN LCD 1280X1024 CML174 264MM 75HZ 400:1 IVORY (Hitachi-CML174SXW)

Excellent monitor at a moderate price


I'd been thinking for a while of upgrading my 17" CRT, especially as I'd added a new machine and KVM switch on my desk. LCD prices have come down a lot in recent years, so I did some price and performance research on-line and at my local stores. 15" is...

Finally a panel for the gamer


I was going to upgrade my system, but I kinda fixed most of the problems it was having, so I ended up with some extra money. I had been wanting a new monitor for awhile, and then I read a review of the CML174 at .

no swivel base, takes awhile to warm up

Product Specifications

The CML174's ultra slim bezel, only 16 mm on each side, is the ultimate space saver - this 17" is close to the size of some 15" LCD cabinets. New "brickless" design means no bulky power converter to lose or mount. The CML174 provides one of the fastest response times available, almost twice as fast as other 17" LCD monitors enabling smoother computer video, animation and gaming movement . One touch auto-adjust function provides quick, beautiful picture adjustments. The CML174 features analog and digital inputs (DVI-D) for flexibility and superior images. The monitor complies with the world's strictest standards for low radiation, safety, ergonomic and power management.
