This is a flat screen 17in. monitor, not flat pannel. It will cost you $134 here .
This monitor is a good choice if you are looking for a fairly cheap, good quality CRT. There are only a couple of problems. The top and bottom lines are wavy, which I have seen other people say, so it must be a common problem. Also, the screen changes quite often...you have to move the horizontal position a lot...which gets pretty annoying. I was real pissed when I first got it because of the lines, but I dont notice them much anymore.
This monitor is a lot brighter and more vibrant then the syncmasters that I have seen.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap/good 17in. CRT.
I give it 4 nukes outa 5
