Expert review by:

Ultrasharp 1704FPV

 

With its characteristic half-moon silver stand, Dell's UltraSharp 1704FPV closely resembles its predecessor, the UltraSharp 1703FP--and it lives up to the high standards set by that earlier model. Though it didn't win top honors on any particular test,...

Good images, especially at this price

Screen adjustment buttons aren't clear

The screen adjustment buttons could be better marked, and we'd like to see screen pivot software included. PivotPro software currently costs $39, so if you plan to use portrait mode often, you may want to add that price to this monitor's overall ticket

The clear choice for Dell computer buyers

 

Originally, I had intended to use my four-year-old NEC MultiSync FE700+ monitor as part of the new Dell 4700 system I ordered last June. It looked fine and it still seemed so new, though its bulk crowded my small computer desk. But I told myself ?Four ...

Hard-to-beat price ; bright, well-focused images ; attractive, ergonomically correct design

Viewing angle specs should be taken with a grain of salt

Dell 1800FP

 

I was hesitant to buy a refurbished monitor but it works without any issues and I hope to get a long life out of it and for $50, nothing else could touch the price. I would knock off some eggs because of the bad stand, but I bought it knowing that and...

Cheap working monitor for a spare computer. Arrived nicely packaged and without any cosmetic damage. Even included a power cord and VGA cable. I needed a monitor with DVI and this fit the bill

Like others, I also received a wimpy stand that doesn't hold the monitor up. For what I needed, it wasn't an issue, but that's pretty lame

I dont know.

 

This thing works good for projection on my laptop. but I tried to buy this for my desktop, which has an Nvidia GTX 460 V2 card in it. I tried a dvi to vga cable to vga on monitor, and it says it does not support analog video mode. I dont know what that...

It works with my laptop with high quality

It does not work with my gtx 460 v2 graphics card

Overview

Works well, with no problems

Nothing of note

Consumer review by:

Great display for a reasonable price.

 

We use these as well as the standard analog panels in our offices. Although I don't know why we have Ultrasharps since none of our machines are capable of DVI output. Well anyway, the picture looks great even with the analog cable. Viewing angles are...

I tried but I really couldn't think of any

BEWARE!

 

Attractive physical appearance. Wide range of physical adjustments. Easy to set up.

Very limited brightness adjustment, especially with a DVI input.
