Good monitor for the price


This is a nice monitor. Color is nice and it takes up little space. The speakers arent tops, but sufficient.

Nice quality and takes up little space

speakers arent great

Great price for a 17 inch. Got it for 280.00, 200.00 after rebate. Very simple features, modest design, nice and bright

Poor DVD resolution, no DVI option. Look at the Princeton SENergy 714

Princeton LCD 1700 - LCD display - TFT - 17"


Got mine for less than $200 after $80 rebate from Princeton. (Time will tell if they actually send the rebate). Nice bright screen, wide viewing angle, modern black & grey trim fits office decor, tilt (up and down) base already connected to monitor

Only has 15-pin D-SUB VGA input (no DVI, component, S-Video, or composite inputs), but that should be expected at this price level. Speakers sound poor (about what typical laptop speakers sound like), but at least it has speakers

The 1700 Is a GREAT monitor - Vibrant, sharp colors


This is my first LCD monitor and I am very pleased with it. I looked at several 17" LCDs at computer stores and this is as good as any I saw

So far I haven't seen any negatives. I am thrilled with the quality

I ordered 2 of these monitors: 1 had NO dead pixels 1 had 1 dead pixel No big deal, since it was only 1 pixel. Very nice looking monitor though, and screen displays good color.
