6 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Low
The ProDisplay P17 is in the cheapest 19% of all 266 PC displays of this age and type that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the ProDisplay P17 will cost only £25 over 5 years to run.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the HP ProDisplay P17 is more than most PC screens that are a similar age to it. The most frequently found cable included is VGA, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC|VGA are also found on this LCD screen.
Based on 685 expert and user reviews, HP has good ratings for its PC displays. HP also has good ratings specifically for its small monitors compared to other brands.
1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio on PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years.
Not Supported HD Type
This PC screen has a Not supported HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on small monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.
The HP ProDisplay P17 is one of the narrower PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the ProDisplay P17 (only 377.2 millimeters) amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age. The narrowest PC monitor that is a similar age to the ProDisplay P17 is 120mm wide and the widest is 640mm.
If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the U160 (377mm), or the L1710 (£55.20) (377mm) both from HP or the Asus VB178T (£104.48) (377mm).

7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The ProDisplay P17 does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other LCD screens of this type and age also do not have a built-in speaker.
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC displays of this age and type are not 3D compatible. The ProDisplay P17 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
PC screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Neovo C-17 (£103.20), or the Samsung SMT-1934 (£123.00).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most flatpanel monitors of a similar spec and age to the ProDisplay P17 do not have a built-in camera. The ProDisplay P17 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the Asus VK207 (£124.99) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for around the same time as the ProDisplay P17 do not have an integrated card reader. The HP ProDisplay P17 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the Samsung LS20C300.
