Summary: I decided to buy another Dell monitor as the one original one that came with my Dell computer was dying. The old one lasted 10 years. I searched the web for the box stores and Dell themselves and this was by far the best price.
Summary: Dell UltraSharp 1702FP is an above average lcd with ample connections. I like the On Screen Display (OSD) but some might find it a little complex. DVI connection gave the best (sharper)picture quality.
Summary: The Monitor is really nice, I use it as a secondary monitor to my laptop. I do Remote Support on line and go to school at the same time so, the extra work space makes it nice to spread out. This monitor has really been sharp and clear, making it really nice to work with.
Summary: by comparison this model is a little out of date. Overall though it serves its purpose with the proper divers installed to has a good picture for standard definition viewing. My main complaint was the power supply it does not use a standard computer power cable. It has it's own dell power supply which is fine but i bought a unit with out the cable thinking I'd have it but then had to buy a power cable.
Summary: The monitor has been around a while, but it can still run with the best of the new 17" monitors. It has both DVI and VGA inputs which is something I personally was looking for. The picture has very little ghosting, which is impressive, and is built well. If it were to ever fail, there are many online guides for repair, so that may be a plus.
