If LG's selection of 17 / 19-inch LCD-wear wasn't exactly anywhere close to your price range, I-O Data is stepping up to fill the void. The LCD-A175 series contains a trio of 17-inch models donning white, silver, and black enclosures, while the LCD-AD195 lineup offers up the same trifecta in a slightly larger form. Both displays sport a 1,280 x 1,024 resolution, 300cd/m2 brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio, 5-millisecond response time, VGA inputs, built-in power supplies, cable management systems, and dual 1.5-watt stereo speakers. The 19-incher raises the bar ever so slightly by adding a DVI input, but otherwise rocks the same decent specifications as its smaller sibling. Both monitors should be available later this month, and while the little guy will run you ¥34,800 ($295), the LCD-AD195 can be had for ¥39,800 ($337).
