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: While doing research work at a university I had this 17" Dell Ultrasharp monitor at my work station. Set at 1024 x 768 it displays a full web page (L to R ) without having to move your head around the screen. At one time I was given the larger 19" Ultrasharp but returned it to our IT guy. It was not nearly as clear or sharp as the 17". While the 19" does have better specs., I was constantly adjusting it and never did get it right. I ask for the 17" to be returned.
Summary: I bought it because the monitor I had crapped out. I bid on this one,it was cheap it does the job. It is not as good as the one I had but it gives me much more space. Well worth the money it cost!
Summary: Low priced LCD for desktop use, bright and punchy. Unsuitable for critical color work, brightness/contrast and color profiles are insufficiently adjustable for pre-press production. That said, at 10% of the price for a color-corrected graphics display your expectations should be less.
