I agree...I have two 17 inch Samsung SyncMaster 171s LCD flat screens 
and now have lots more space on the desk/shelves and NO noise 
WHATSOEVER...They even look half decent, black to match the 
Yaesu...Highly recommended if you don't mind a few extra $$ to buy 
them...Just don't poke a pen through one, trust me...
