HP L1706

 

An entry-level business-class LCD monitor, the HP L1706 ($319 direct) is a bare-bones analog-only 17-inch display with a 1,280- by 1,024-pixel resolution and a 12-ms (black to white) pixel-response rating. It's an average straightforward LCD that lacks...

Good overall image quality. First-rate warranty policy

Analog only. No height or swivel adjustment

HP L1706

 

One of many no-frills business-oriented monitors to hit the market, the HP L1706 delivers performance that's adequate for basic office tasks, but it has few extra features and limited adjustability. The $319 L1706 will serve office workers well, but...

Fine color quality; easy to operate; good image adjustability.

No side-to-side swivel; no height adjustment; inferior text rendering and viewing angle.

In the L1706, HP offers an affordable flat panel with satisfactory image quality, but the display lacks any extra adjustability and inputs. The L1706 will serve office workers well, but other more-adjustable and better-performing monitors are available...

HP's L1706 17" LCD Monitor is Very Average

 

This monitor is mainly intended for business use, and I think for a little more money you could get something a lot better.

Adequate for a second monitor

 

I purchased this for my second monitor. It fits the bill well, however, I would not recommend it as a primary monitor. The color is fine on its own but it has insufficient range in its adjustment and I have had a problem matching within a certain...

Works but may have problems down the road.

 

I would like to see more troubleshooting forums on this problem.

Works with a good picture

I've had numerous 1706's that would turn on for about two seconds, and then lose all color. After it happening to the fourth one, too much to take

Good Monitor

 

I have had it for a while and have recently upgraded. It's a good monitor, but nothing super fantastic or mind blowing. Works just fine. :) If you just need a monitor, and you want a good brand and avoid shoddy worksmanship, this Monitor is worth the...

This is a very good monitor. 1280x1024 resolution, comes with good cables. No backlight leaking or dead pixels either. Very pleased with it

No DVI. Kind of Pricey
