Summary: I bought this UltraSharp 17 inch in 2003 when it was called the 1703FP. Three years ago, I bought the 24 inch UltraSharp 2405U. I use them side by side. The 1703FP doesn't have quite the brightness of the 2405U, but as far as sharpness in letters, lines, and other delineations there is no difference. I would expect the brightness on the 1708FP is probably better than on my 2405U now.

Summary: I purchased this Monitor about a month ago now and I can say I am completely satisfied with the quality of the monitor and the service. Even though the company I purchased this monitor from said it was in good condition, this was an understatement to say the least. The monitor arrived in secure packaging and in excellent condition. There were very few blemishes that I could find. There were no dead pixels and the screen was bright and clear.
Summary: I wanted to find a less bulky monitor to work with my Vostro tower and I was VERY happy with this purchase... The monitor was received in a very reasonable time and was in mint condition. It looks and works like a brand-new screen, is easy to use and exactly what I needed, if not even a bit better (has extra usb ports, longer cord, and height/direction adjustability).
Summary: Even my wife loves it is so easy to see. Price was unbelievable and it arrived with days, so easy to set up unplug one and plug in this one. Other members of family asked it they could have one for Xmas.
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.
