Summary: I purchased the 1708 because I needed the space also I couldn't mount a webcam on my old monitor. It has been a pleasant surprise, the image is better that I expected and I would definately buy another one.
Summary: Works as expected. It's a used monitor and there was nothing wrong with it. It was a good price and I plugged it in and it worked. So that's really all I can say. If you want to save some money and don't care about the size, one like this will work well.
