The Planar 17” LCD monitor gives you the flexibility to work the way you need. With a of 150° (h) / 135° (v) viewing angle and anti-glare coating, you’ll have a great view in any configuration. If you prefer to mount the monitor on the wall, it’s equipped with a 100mm VESA bracket for simple, sturdy installation.
Your documents, presentations, and photos will all look rich and clear with 1280 x 1024 resolution, and your movies and games will come through in bold color and smooth motion thanks to the fast 8ms response time. A pair of built-in TrueMedia speakers give full, bright sound without cluttering up your desk. Give your desktop or office wall a sleek, contemporary appearance, and enjoy LCD performance without breaking the bank!
Pros: It's white, which matches the color of my system. Also has built in speakers and a headphone jack on the front, which will come in handy quite often.
Cons: None that I can think of, other than it could have come with a DVI-D port. But then, the RGB/VGA port does the job well, and it provides a super-sharp image quality.
Other Thoughts: I reckon this monitor would work just as easily with a Mac, but I can't afford a Mac system at this time. When the time comes around, I will use it with a Mac Mini basic.

The only white monitor? Seriously?
Pros: It's white, to match the Atom-powered Acer computer I was looking at buying.
Cons: Twice as expensive and smaller than LCDs in black cases. 19"-21" monitors are plentiful in the sub-200 dollar range, in black/grey.
Other Thoughts: This is the only white-cased LCD monitor on Newegg today when I searched. I didn't know white was that unpopular.
