I got a LG L1730S as well. I'm happy with it.
One of the things I looked for at the store, besides price and specs, was how the color tones looked, and how 'real' video looked on it. The L1730S was IMHO just about the best one all around in that price range for those 2 considerations.
Some of the other ones had good specs but didn't look as clean when playing video and such...
