DELL Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens
We calculated the average reviews for all DELL PC displays and also specifically for DELL medium monitors and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Four USB Type-A Downstream Ports
The DELL P2717H is a four USB Type-A downstream port PC display. Most of the other new medium monitors have between one and four USB Type-A downstream ports.
Just Released Seven Months Ago
DELL only released the P2717H seven months ago.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
It may also be worth considering one of the other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including a cheaper PC monitor such as the Asus VZ249H[plb_3707286_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC monitor such as the DELL U2412M[plb_1448037_price], or the HP 23er[plb_3809419_price].
Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the DELL P2717H has a very wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the P2717H. Comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to the P2717H have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
Very Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The DELL P2717H has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other latest PC screens. The horizontal viewing angles of recently released medium monitors range from 65° to 180°.

Quite Big Display Diagonal
At 68.8 centimeters, the DELL P2717H has a fairly big display diagonal compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the P2717H. The screen sizes of medium monitors that came out around the same time as the P2717H range from 49cm to 690cm, and the average display diagonal is 67cm.
Quite Bright Display Brightness
The display brightness of LCD screens that are a similar age to the P2717H range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². With a display brightness of 300 candellas per square meter, the DELL P2717H has one of the brighter display brightness amongst medium monitors of this age.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on similar spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as it.
Has Four Cables Included
The number of cables included found on the DELL P2717H is more than most recently released medium monitors. This PC screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on recently released medium monitors. The cables included "DisplayPort", "USB" and "VGA" are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
With a depth of only 50.3 millimeters, the DELL P2717H is one of the shallower medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the P2717H amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the P2717H the depths range from 7mm to 610mm.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other similar spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the P2717H have a built-in speaker, however the DELL P2717H does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Viewsonic XG2401[plb_3364752_price] or the Samsung V32F390[plb_3930100_price], or the LG 29UM68[plb_3766445_price] are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC displays that were launched in the last year are not 3D compatible. The DELL P2717H is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL P2717H does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other latest medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the Philips 241B7QPJKEB[plb_3861282_price].
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the P2717H, the DELL P2717H does not have an integrated card reader.

Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been around for the last year.
Fairly Slow Response Time
The DELL P2717H has a fairly slow response time (6 milliseconds) compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were released around the same time as the P2717H. The response times of latest medium monitors range from 1ms to 20ms.
Quite High Annual Energy Consumption
The DELL P2717H has one of the higher annual energy consumptions (64.04 kilowatt hours) amongst PC monitors of this age. The lowest annual energy consumption of new medium monitors is 23kWh and the highest is 140kWh.
1 Other reason to consider the DELL P2717H
At 621 millimeters, the DELL P2717H has a relatively standard width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the P2717H.
If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the S27F350FHU[pl_3355050_price] (626.2mm and cheaper), or the S27E510C[pl_2792915_price] (623.2mm and cheaper) both from Samsung or the Acer R271[plb_3355111_price] (619.8mm and cheaper).
