Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC screens of this type and age do not have an integrated card reader. The DELL P170S is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of small monitors that have been available for more than two years is 8.9cm and the biggest is 440cm. With a display diagonal of only 43 centimeters, the DELL P170S has a fairly small display diagonal compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that came out around the same time as the P170S.

3 Other reasons to consider the DELL P170S

Average Running Costs

The P170S is typical compared to the other 264 LCD screens of this age and type that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the P170S is £39.

Released Over Four Years Ago

This LCD screen has been on the market for over four years.

LCD Display Type

The DELL P170S has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including a cheaper PC display such as the HP L1950g[plb_1468277_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC display such as the HP Compaq LE1711[plb_2213421_price].

If the display type of this small monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the GL955A[pl_1538862_price] (LED), or the GL2023[pl_1561830_price] (LED) both from Benq which also has a higher rating.
