XP17 FPD: A high-end 17" monitor
Hot Hardware, where IT professionals go for trusted hardware reviews, has break-tested the Shuttle XP17 flat panel display (FPD). In his thorough review of this high-end 17-inch monitor, Hot Hardware Editor-In-Chief, Dave Altavilla discovered the advantages of Shuttle’s beautiful new flat panel display.
“The XP17's strong suit is definitely its elegant, sleek design,” opened Altavilla. “The panel itself is nice [and] … that polished glass face plate, definitely is easy on the eyes“ The XP17 has been design to be beautiful anywhere. Its single piece aluminum frame is manufactured from a single piece of durable aluminum and it’s tough tempered glass panel provides longevity often lacking in today’s price orientated market. Design excellence and quality can also be found in this flat panel display’s excellent feature set.
“If there's one area that's paramount to a display's performance rating here at Hot Hardware, then obviously it would have to be image quality over a wide range of applications,” said Dave of the XP17. “Here's where the XP17 shines, literally, with it's powerful 450:1 contrast ratio.”
The XP17 features a full-palette of performance specs that high-end and discriminating users will enjoy. Its purposely designed powerful contrast resolution, wide viewing angle and most importantly fast reaction time will make the XP17 great for any vocation.
“One word fits for the Shuttle XP17 in this criteria [response time], "fast",” praised Altvilla. “We drove through many different gaming engines, from FarCry to UT2004 … the XP17 performed admirably in all cases, with very little if any ghosting or image artifacts in fast moving action.”
For the discriminating user, professional or someone who wants more than the average setup, the XP17 FPD is ideal. The XP17 is currently on sale throughout Europe, America and Asia.
