At a Glance
The panel is very thin, and Compaq built a handle into its top, so the monitor is easy to carry. The base is shallow and doesn't take much desk space, yet it's still quite stable. The display tilts with little effort.
In our tests, the FP5017 earned a Good rating for text display, but it did poorly on graphics. Our judges gave it low marks on most of our graphics screen tests, as it produced unrealistic, pale-looking colors, especially in the skin tones of photos.
