Flatscreen Upgrade


Bought on special from Dell Refurbished site for under $300. Great deal.

When I purchased my desktop I chose a non-flatscreen monitor. When it started to go I opted for this model. The price was great, the quality great and it was easy to install and configure.

The stand doesn't adjust as high as my 1704FPT

great monitor but really small


the best picture i have seen for a flat panel. the price really would be hard to be beat

really small . but hey its a 17 inch widescreen .not your regular 17 inch monitor there is a big difference.

Three times the Praise!


I liked my first monitor so well I bought 2 more for the other computers in the house. Best picture on a monitor iI have ever seen. My desk top has a lot more room to work now. Purchasing this monitor is one thing you can't go wrong with, this one is...

can't list them if there aren't any.

The In Laws


I bought this to up grade my in laws existing monitor. It was easy to set up and use. The picture is crystal clear. Compared to their old monitor this takes up 1/6 of the space on their desk and their old monitor had a smaller viewing screen.


Product Specifications

Widescreen is better suited to the eye's natural field of vision, which helps to reduce eye strain. The high resolution increases productivity because it can reduce toggling back and forth between windows. In addition, the flat panel design of the E178WFP takes up very little space on your desktop. Whether you are working or playing, wider and flatter truly is better. Dell monitors are sleek, with ultra-thin bezels so they look great in any environment. More than just a pretty face, Dell monitors are designed and built to the highest standards, providing the quality and reliability you expect when you see the Dell logo. The performance of the E178WFP is one more reason why Dell is the world's number one source for flat-panel monitors.
