I have been using this monitor for couple of years in my office now. One thing I can tell you about this monitor is that it has flexibility!
- You can set the height of the monitor, tilt it up and down. You can also skew it so you can have it in a portrait mode instead of in the regular landscape mode.
- Although it's not as sharp as a crystal clear screen, this LCD screen has a crisp picture with sharp colors with max resolution of 1280x 1024 pixel.
-this screen also equipped with USB slots, so you can plug in your flash diskor any other usb plugs into it, without having trouble to plug in to the PC.
The button functionality in system menu is a bit confusing, however you just need to get used to it.
In overall, this LCD monitor is awesome.
I have had this monitor for over 3 years and its still going strong despite the fact that this was part of Dell's value range. At the time I bought this monitor it was on offer for £120 which was incredible value at the time of purchase although it can be bought for £40 on ebay. The maximum resolution is 1280x1024 therefore it isn't HD although it can view HD videos assuming that the graphics card installed in your PC is capable of viewing HD videos. The response time is slow but considering that this monitor was designed for office use I cannot fault it for blurring during high action videos and anyway this is normal on most LCD televisions. Special brackets can be bought from dell that allow the bottom base to be disconnected and instead lets it hang from a wall which saves even more space. The maximum hertz is 60 which is around 30fps which should be able to view graphic intense games such as World of Warcraft easily without blur. The only downside is the fact that the screen doesn't come with a sound bar but there are matching Dell speakers which are cheap and sound pretty good which I have also reviewed. Overall this is a very good monitor for business purpose but if you require speakers it may be better to upgrade to an edition with a sound bar.
The Dell E176FP is designed for a wide variety of users ranging from the home to corporate or financial trading environments. It offers many upgraded features such as wider viewing angle, high contrast ratio and faster response times. Those who require exceptional quality and reliability at an affordable price will appreciate the value that the Dell E176FP provides.
