Hyundai introduces L70N, value 17" LCD

Hyundai (or rather Hyundai Display) introduced a new 17" LCD monitor for the value sector.

I guess it´s value because it has only D-Sub output and 150° vertical and 135° horizontal viewing angles. Other features are good: 16ms response time, 500:1 contrast. Hyundai L70N is to cost €384 in Europe.
