I do a ton of text work and this HP monitor is like getting a new pair of glasses -- amazing. And the 17-inch wide-screen is plenty large. Speakers aren't much, but I didn't expect them to be. Thanks to the monitor's small foot print (about 1/10th that of my old CRT), I have reclaimed my desk-top area. Ah, all that space!

the flat, glass-like surface is highly reflective. i think it's best to have a subdued light area to work in; daylight from windows behind particularly bad.

image quality is beautiful

Good monitor for the price. Easy to use controls. Great for word documents but just ok for pictures.

I love this monitor! My previous monitor was a big bulky monitor that took up all my desk area. This monitor takes up hardly any area plus it is so light weight! It is also an HP. In my opinion, you cannot beat HP for anything! They have outstanding products & Customer Service that no one can beat!

I have had absolutely no problems whatsoever with this unit. The picture is bright and clear. I especially like the feature in which you can select different display settings based on what you will be viewing, instead of manually changing contrast and all that good stuff. Some of the preset modes include:
Movie
Photo
Gaming
Text

The text mode seems to be the most accurate in terms of color, but I have tested the different modes and they all complement what you're viewing perfectly.

The built-in speakers definitely should not be used as your primary mode of audio output, but they work fine, just a bit tinny.

The glossy coating on the screen gives everything a sharper appearance. That is perhaps the best part of this product; in fact, when I was looking around, I specifically looked for the glossy coating.

As far as input options go, it has a VGA input and a DVI input. You can quickly switch between the two.

If your computer was previously running a traditional square monitor, you will need to install the widescreen driver in order to make the aspect ratio correct (this monitor operates on a 16:9 ratio) The installation disk is included, and is easy to install.

As far as style, I would have to say it tops everyone else. Very cool looking.

All in all this has been a fantastic monitor, and suits my needs just fine. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. You can't go wrong with HP.

I really like this monitor. I have had it over a year with no problems. There are only two little issues I had, neither with the quality of the monitor - first, when it was shipped, I somehow thought it would be in a plain box, but it was shipped in its original box, meaning there was a obvious monitor box sitting on my front porch for everyone to see. I am glad it didn't get swiped! The other issue is - be aware that the screen will look very different if you hit menu, quickview, then movie or gaming options -- instead of text. Somehow this got changed on my computer (my son!) and it took me a long time to figure out why the screen and text looked so off! Just something to be aware of. Overall, great product one year in!

I have had this monitor since they came out in 2008, six years later and it's still running strong! I used it as a computer monitor for a while, I then used an HDMI to DVI cable and had my Xbox 360 connected to it. I had my Xbox running in 720p mode and the image was fantastic! This display is very glossy but this leads to a much higher contrast with very deep blacks. I highly recommend this monitor and most any other displays from HP.

I have recently upgraded to the HP Pavilion 27xi monitor and I'm excited to get the same quality and longevity out of it as I did my w1707. I don't see any signs my w1707 is going to quit anytime soon.
