LG Flatron 1730S


Although not the best performer, the LG Flatron 1730S is well suited for front-desk applications because of its excellent cable-management system and crisp text display.

Excellent cable-management system; comes with color-calibration software; uncluttered design; easy onscreen menu navigation.

Limited adjustability; screen-uniformity problems.

The LG Flatron 1730S is a basic LCD whose covered backside makes it perfect for front-desk and other high-visibility areas.

L1730S Silver 17


On the Flatron L17030S, LG included LightSurf Colorific color-adjusting software, which does a nice job of helping you fine-tune the image for ambient light conditions. Likewise, LG's F-Engine settings technology lets you choose presets of brightness,...

Imposing and attractive, LG Electronics Flatron L1730S uses the same curved back cover found on other recent LG models, so it has a tidy and composed appearance from the back as well as from the front. Unfortunately, the L1730S doesn't offer a swivel...

LG Electronics Flatron L1730S


Stylish monitor has a regal bearing, but getting graphics to display properly takes some tinkering.

LG's Flatron L1730S is a good text-only monitor for workplaces with two-sided desks or tables.

L1730 17'' LCD Monitor


The L1730's low price and nimble adjustment features are its best features.

The L1730 is a good buy for a digital model with lots of positional adjustability, but other 17-inch models are better suited for graphics-intensive work

LG Flatron L1730P - 17in TFT monitor


As 17in LCD monitors continue to flood the market, LG takes a gamble with its chips.

On the face of it, the L1730P looks smart and offers a good range of features such as dual connectivity, a USB hub, a height adjustable stand and a pivoting screen. It can also handle images commendably after some tweaking, but if you are looking for...

cool monitor


well actually not really a con but it would have been nice if it were height adjustable too. but i can live without it as it doesnt effect how good the quality of this monitor is.

this lcd monitor is great. the pixels are outstanding. and the heat sensitive buttons are so cool. you just put you finger up to it. seems so secret agent-ish

The heat sensitive buttons take a little practice...its cool that LG used something different than just regular buttons.

Very nice monitor. Was very pleased with the design and how thin it actually is. Definitely thinking about using the included wall mount. Also, the monitor doesn't feel cheap such as other monitors found at local department stores
