Expert review by:

ThinkVision L171p

 

The ThinkVision L171p scores points for its versatility, but its image quality, while adequate, doesn't match that of similarly priced monitors.

Flexible; pivots from landscape to portrait orientation; supplies both analog and digital inputs; superior warranty; good brightness.

No cable-management system; colors appear in the grayscales; screen is not uniform.

Lenovo Thinkvision L171P Monitor

 

IBM's ThinkVision L171p offers plenty of ergonomic options--it can be adjusted smoothly, and it has a solid footing. But its image quality pales in comparison to most of the other 17-inch displays we've tested, and it offers few extras.

Easy to make adjustments with this model

Confusing on-screen controls; no extras.

Even though the L171p's image quality leaves much to be desired, the display offers a nice range of adjustments

Lenovo/IBM ThinkVision L171p

 

Like vinyl records are for DJs, CRTs are still the preferred medium for most gamers. But for the rest of us, the flat screen of a LCD monitor is a more pleasing mode of viewing those endless computer files we now have to contend with in our daily...

Ultraslim bezel. Supports portrait rotation. Good image quality

DVI cable costs extra. Rotation software not included. Weak vertical viewing-angle performance

The Lenovo/IBM ThinkVision L171p is a solid, reasonably priced LCD monitor.

17IN/16V 24mm 1600x1200 94hz P76 BLK

 

WHAT'S HOT: If judged on graphics quality alone, the P76 would have placed high on our Top 10 chart: It rendered images with appealing color saturation and brightness. It also displayed text that's a pleasure to look at, mainly due to the whiteness of...

The rather expensive P76 renders easy-to-read text and produces vivid images.

Lenovo/IBM ThinkVision L171p 17-inch LCD monitor Review and Prices

 

The Lenovo/IBM ThinkVision L171p is a 17-inch LCD monitor that does its job well, but it may be a bit overpriced. Read the full review....

Consumer review by:

ThinkVision L171P

 

In an office environment where people use mainly information-based applications (ie, no graphics or colour work), this monitor would be fine at it's highest resolution setting.

Bright display, good blacks

Lower resolution quality poor

Goofy

 

There are symptoms of the monitor flaking out but I can live with the issues. Doesn't affect usability and it's not my full time monitor.

Monitor works and the stand is very adjustable. There are some issues with the one I received

The monitor flickers and has many lines on it as it starts up. This happens initially during bios flash screens and as the systems attached first boot up. Once Windows starts to load the lines go away and it functions great

Great deal, also there is no brick.

This monitor is crystal clear, with No dead pixels. Running vista beta with duel monitors the other is a Dell Ultra sharp 1907PF. This lenovo is much better

The stand height seems slightly low

Really Good Monitor!!!

 

Overall, this monitor is great and I like the performance of the unit.

This monitor is one of the best I have ever used... Design and everything else is great and the menu buttons on the front of the unit are easy to use, including an auto adjust feature. It also has a really thin bezel that is only about 1 inch wide

Sometimes, when my computer is turned on, the picture on the monitor is way off to the side, I end up having to manually press the Auto Adjust Button almost every time I turn on the system. My SAMSUNG monior automatically adjusts the picture whenever...
