Very Low Running Costs
Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 8 year running cost of the P2217H is only £46, which is in the cheapest 8% of all 380 medium monitors that were launched in the last year.
DELL medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all LCD screens DELL is one of the better rated brands.

The DELL P2217H is a four USB Type-A downstream ports quantity flatpanel monitor.
This PC display has an LED display, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including the Samsung S27E510C[plb_2792915_price] which is cheaper.
Fairly Big Pixel Density
At 102 pixels per inch, the DELL P2217H has a quite big pixel density compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P2217H. The pixel densitys of new medium monitors range from 0.24ppi to 170ppi, and the average pixel density is 93ppi.

The DELL P2217H is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to the P2217H are also not 3D.
