Four USB Type-A Downstream Ports
The DELL P2217 is a four USB Type-A downstream port PC monitor. Most of the other LCD screens that were released in the last year have between one and four USB Type-A downstream ports.
Just Released Seven Months Ago

The average vertical viewing angle of newly released flatpanel monitors is 170°, and the vertical viewing angles range from 50° to 180°.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the DELL P2217 has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other new flatpanel monitors.
