HP vs17 review


HP vs17 With an attractive design and a low $279 price, it's hard not to like the HP vs17. Even though its performance is average, the 17-inch LCD wins points by adding decent-sounding built-in speakers and a headphone jack. It even has volume buttons...

Affordable; built-in speakers and headphone jack; easy-to-navigate onscreen menu; dedicated volume buttons.

Analog only; few ergonomic adjustments; short, one-year limited warranty; no cable-management system.

The HP vs17 is one of many average-performing, general use LCD monitors; however, its low price and built-in speakers make it worth considering.

HP Review


The HP vs17e is an adequate LCD monitor for basic home and office use. While this computer monitor does not have many fancy extras it will suffice for regular use. It includes the standard 500:1 contrast ratio, 8ms response time and 300 cd/m2 brightness
