HP vs17


The HP vs17 is attractive but somewhat old-fashioned-looking. The bezel is fairly narrow at only 0.5 inch on each side, and the rounded sides make it look more substantial than it really is--it's not the best choice for a dual-monitor setup. A...

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

A good step up from a 13-inch Compaq CRT


I got this HPvs17e Monitor for $50 or $53.53 when I got a new a1750y Series HP Pavilion through the HP Store online. The monitor has a built-in speakers with easy controls on the side with a plug for headphones underneath. However there were some...

I have tried everything to improve the graphics. This monitor will not allow you to change certain settings. There are no updates or new drivers available. I wouldn't recommend this bundled desktop package. Computer is a Compaq SR2177CL. Monitor is a...
