Planar PV174


What a difference a year makes-especially in a market that acts like a roller coaster! Last year, 15-inch flat panels cost about $1,000; this year they're half that. Price fluctuations like these can be a buyer's best friend, if the timing is right.

Pivoting 17-inch LCD looks great but isn't as easy to use as the best.
