Default Samsung 743B 17-inch Monitor

Think large displays are over-rated? Then Samsung's brand new 743B might just be worth a look. At 17-inches, it sure isn't for everyone. It offers a 1280x1024 resolution, fast 5ms response time and an outstanding 7000:1 contrast ratio. Does this small monitor pack a big punch?

You can read Matt's review here and discuss it here!

Damn. Nice. My parents could use a new monitor. The gateway isn't cutting it. but the Samsung is a bit pricey.
