I'm planning on buy a low end PowerMac and a third party 17" LCD. I've done a lot of research, and have settled on the LG L1720P (http://www.lge.com/catalog/prodmodeldetail?actType=search&page=1&modelCategoryId=CTG1000499&categoryId=CTG1000496&parentId=CTG1000439&modelPrefix=40IL17&globalCode=L1720PL&globalSuffix=000000&unit=NOTHING&model=7#).

Has anyone used this monitor (or other LG monitors) with their Macs and had good experiences? I've found only good reviews, but I prefer the Mac community's opinion in cases like these.

LG monitors are awesome. I believe (though I could be mistaken) that Apple actually uses LG internals in their monitors.

after a quick visit on the site, I guess you can give it a shot :) 12ms response time for example kicks ass.. I would never give up my Apple display though (except for a bigger Apple.. this is 17" SD).

IIRC Apple do use LG/Philips LCDs for their displays, so going with LG should be a safe bet :)

I just bought the LG 1720P and can't get the driver nor the callibration settings right. This sucks and when I called LG for support they told me that they don't support mac. What the @#$%^ do I do?? :mad:
