Sharp LL-172G

 

A flexible, efficiently designed stand makes this monitor a standout for the price.

Efficient design and ergonomics not often seen in a modestly priced monitor make the Sharp LL-172G a smart buy--a Best Buy, in fact.

Sharp LL-172G

 

The Sharp LL-172G is an attractive display that justifies a higher cost than much of its competition.

Digital and analog signal support. Excellent printed documentation. Better-than-average speakers.

Weak on light gray shades. No autosync or mute buttons.

Sharp LL-172A

 

The analog-only Sharp LL-172A has a stylish case, built-in speakers, and a slightly higher price tag than most monitors in its class.

The thin bezel and speakers are plusses for the LL-172A, as is its mostly good image quality. But limited viewing angles leave it only slightly better than the middle of the pack.

Crisp and advanced controls come together in this smart buy.

The Sharp LL-172A-B delivers crystal-clear text at a reasonable price.

LL-172A

 

The Sharp LL-172A-B impressed our jury with its crisp text, particularly in the Microsoft Word and Excel screens. In fact, it earned the highest text score of all 17-inch LCDs we've tested lately. Graphics looked less spectacular; detail was obscured...
