11 Reasons For
We calculated the average ratings for all DELL PC monitors and specifically for DELL small monitors and found that in both cases DELL had excellent ratings compared to other brands.
Low Running Costs
The P2017H has an average running cost of only £23 over 5 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run small monitors that have been around for the last year.
Only Released Four Months Ago
The P2017H was only relased by DELL four months ago. Newer flatpanel monitors like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec PC screens that were launched in the last 12 months.
We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display to this PC display and we think the DELL P1914S (£65.94) which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The horizontal viewing angles of similar spec PC screens that have been around for a comparable time to the P2017H range from 89° to 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 140°. With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the DELL P2017H has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other newly released small monitors.
Has One Cable Included
The DELL P2017H has a greater number of cables included than most recently released PC screens. The most frequently found cable included is VGA, but this cable included is not found on this LCD screen. The cables included AC|DisplayPort|USB|VGA are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
+6 More reasons for
Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the DELL P2017H has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other small monitors that have been around for the last year. Newly released LCD screens have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°.
1600 X 900 Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1600 x 900, which is typical of many small monitors that came out around the same time as it.
Fairly Large Color Gamut
The color gamuts of latest small monitors range from 72% to 86%, and the average color gamut is 77%. At 84 percent, the DELL P2017H has a fairly large color gamut compared to most of the other newly released similar spec PC screens.
1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This LCD screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found typical contrast ratio on new small monitors.
With a height of only 273.2 millimeters, the DELL P2017H is one of the shorter small monitors that have been on the market for the last year amongst PC monitors of this age. Across all the small monitors that are a comparable age to the P2017H the heights range from 75mm to 450mm.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The DELL P2017H does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the P2017H also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the DELL P2014H (£74.18) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other new small monitors, the DELL P2017H does not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the ProDVX M104 is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL P2017H does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other new comparable spec flatpanel monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Most small monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P2017H are not 3D compatible. The DELL P2017H is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
+3 More reasons against
Fairly High Maximum Power Consumption
The lowest maximum power consumption of small monitors that were released in the last 12 months is 17W and the highest is 50W. At 39 Watts, the DELL P2017H has a fairly high maximum power consumption compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec flatpanel monitors.
Quite Slow Response Time
With a response time of 6 milliseconds, the DELL P2017H has a fairly slow response time compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been available for the last year. Recently released small monitors have response times of between 2ms and 14ms, and the average response time is 5.7ms.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL P2017H
4000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The DELL P2017H has a maximum contrast ratio of 4000000:1. That's over one hundred and sixty times the contrast ratio of the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio of 25000:1.
If the contrast ratio of this small monitor is too low for you then you might want to consider the 22kd (£79.98) (6000000:1 and cheaper), or the T3U87AA (£108.18) (6000000:1 and cheaper) both from HP.
The DELL P2017H has a pretty average width (461.5 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the P2017H.
PC monitors with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the Lenovo E2054 (£90.00) (456mm and cheaper), or the Asus VX207DE (466.9mm and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this PC monitor have been estimated based on other similar PC monitors. If you know how much electricity and water the DELL P2017Huses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this PC monitor over 5 years will generate 0.11 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 3 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
