7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The ProDisplay P17A does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC monitors of a similar type and age to the ProDisplay P17A also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the V7 L18500WS-9N (£62.63), or the Hannspree HE196APB (£56.11); or the V7 L18500WS-9K (£64.52) are also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The HP ProDisplay P17A does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other small monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P17A also do not have an integrated card reader.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The ProDisplay P17A does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other small monitors that have been around for around the same time as the ProDisplay P17A also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDisplay P17A, the ProDisplay P17A is not 3D compatible.
+4 More reasons against
Quite Small Display Diagonal

Very Small Viewable Width
The average viewable width of small monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P17A is 400mm. At only 337.9 millimeters, the HP ProDisplay P17A has a quite small viewable width compared to most of the other small monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P17A.
The average weight of small monitors that are a comparable age to the ProDisplay P17A is 2.8kg, and the weights range from 140g to 5.8kg. The ProDisplay P17A is one of the heavier comparable spec PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the ProDisplay P17A (3.2 kilograms) amongst small monitors of this age.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDisplay P17A

LCD Display Type
The ProDisplay P17A has a better display type than most similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to it. This LCD screen has an LCD display type, whereas most small monitors that have been around for a similar time to it have an LED display type.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung LS19E20KBW (£69.97), and the HP V201a (£69.97) is also worth considering.
If you are looking for an LCD screen with a better display type then you might want to look at the V7 L18500WS-9N (£62.63) (LED and cheaper); or the DELL E1916H (£52.27) (LED and higher rated), or the Philips 200V4QSBR (£71.98) (LED and higher rated).
