PERFECTED MY NEW PURCHASE

 

Bought 20 monitors for my client and they are very happy with them!

lOVE THE SLEEK DESIGN. COLOR AND IMAGE QUALITY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS.

CAN'T THINK OF ONE!

Fantastic Monitor!

 

Fantastic monitor! - Good looking monitor with a very sharp image. I've been using it for over a year and it's the best monitor I've ever had.

Nothing wrong with it.

Saggy Display NOT Recommended

 

Hope to get my $$ back or an exchange.

Nice crisp image quality.

Display sags in the middle, like a worn out hammock. Unless you are looking down, it's not a good monitor at all.

Love It

 

My recent Inspiron purchase came with a wide panel 17" monitor which is fine if you don't mind looking through the bottom of a bottle at it. Totally distorted and rediculous as far as I am concerned. It cost me more for this one and should have been...

good choice

 

I actually returned the 19" widescreen monitor that I purchased as part of a Dell computer package and exchanged it for this one. It cost me extra, and took a few weeks, but I'm glad I decided to. I'm very happy with it ; the graphics are extremely...

I don't know why this monitor wasn't offered as one of the standard options as part of the Dell computer package. I'm sure I spent more money on this monitor, by buying it separately, than I would have if I'd been able to order it as part of a package

Good and Bad

 

Spent 2 1/2 hours with a Dell XPS warranty representative but could not resolve problem. Representative replicated XPS M140 and 1708FP set up in lab, but could not get the notebook operating system to start up if the computer is powered up while...

The UltraSharp 1708FP 17 in Flat Panel is an excellent monitor when connected to a desktop computer or a notebook computer in a docking station. Good value for the money, but bad when it does not run perfectly.

Encountered problems with 1708FP when it is connected to a Dell notebook computer, specifically the XPS M140. Windows will not start if the notebook is powered on and connected to a powered on 1708FP. Notebook must be powered on first and then the...

17 in LCD Monitor Best for value & quality

 

One of the most stylish, great-looking monitor & stand. Outstanding design!

This monitor has one of the best displays for LCD I have ever seen. It has VERY easy/simple controls on front. It also has DVI and VGA inputs for conection to your machine. The USB Ports are a nice feature, although I would recommend you only connect...

This monitor is great!!

 

I like the sleek look and the auto features it comes with.

I have not found any cons yet and I have had it for a month and use it every day.

Killer Monitors

 

The only way these could get better would be glossy screens, and higher resolution. but 1280X1024 is still killer res for a 17".

These monitors have DVI and VGA inputs, as well as a button to switch between the two. I use one here for two different things. The DVI is plugged into my main machine on a second video card to be used as my third monitor. The VGA gets plugged into a...

Have found nothing wrong with them. I have run through around 100 of these in the past year, and have only had to RMA two of them. Random problems, one of them glitched out and started flickering uncontrollably, and the other would not turn on anymore....

Bang for the buck

 

The feature set is as good as one can expect for the price. I've seen many 17" LCD monitors with comparable cost that have few if any of the features of this monitor. If I have to buy another monitor any time soon, I would not hesitate to buy the same...
