Ultrasharp 1707FP

 

Dell's versatile UltraSharp 1707FP is a nicely designed, easy-to-use display that comes with several extra features. The 17-inch unit costs an affordable $299 (as of 2/16/06); however, its image quality falls a bit short of that offered by other...

Pivots and rotates easily. Two USB ports on the side are a useful e function mycarousel_initCallback(carousel) { jQuery('.jcarousel-control a').bind('click', function() { var myClass = jQuery(this).attr('class'); ...

Dell 1707FP

 

The Dell 1707FP has everything you need: good image quality, lots of adjustability, a functional, appealing design, and sensible extras.

Great image quality; very adjustable; high degree of connectivity; OSM is easy to navigate; USB hub.

Subtle color-tracking errors in the grayscales; slightly wobbly.

With an attractive design, ample adjustability options, and great image quality, the Dell UltraSharp 1707FP is one of the best 17-inch LCD monitors. We're especially impressed with its low price.

Dell UltraSharp 1707FP LCD monitor

 

Budget-conscious display shoppers won't be disappointed with this highly flexible 17-inch monitor. With its built-in USB hub, and very good text and color performance, you'll be staying too close to the screen to notice the limited viewing angle.

Inexpensive; agile design; adjustable height; good text quality; accurate color out of the box; includes DVI and analog cables; 4-port USB hub

Limited viewing angle

My favorite feature is the monitor’s impressive range of motion. It pivots, tilts, swivels, and is height adjustable. I'm pretty tall, and I hate having to stack risers, books, or boxes on my desk to get the display to a comfortable height
