There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the Asus VE198[plb_1584510_price].

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL P170S

Released Over Four Years Ago

LCD Display Type

The DELL P170S has an LCD display type which is better than most comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most small monitors that have been available for a similar time to it have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including the HP L1950g[plb_1468277_price] which is cheaper; or the Asus VE198[plb_1584510_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a PC monitor with a better display type then you might also want to consider the DELL E1913[plb_1429213_price] (LED and cheaper); or the Asus VS197[plb_1445370_price] (LED and higher rated).
