The Compaq S700 is a monitor produced in the late 1990's that is compatible with many Compaq Desktops. In an August 18, 1999 review, PC World called the monitor an all-around average display, lauding the "crisp text" display of the monitor but criticizing the graphics quality otherwise.
Viewing Area and Dimensions
- The Compaq S700 is a 17-inch monitor with a 15.7- inch viewing area. The monitor's dimensions are 14.49 inches high by 16.23 inches wide by 16.42 inches deep.
- The S700's refresh rate, or response time, depends on the graphics setting chosen. At a 1280 x 1024 pixel display setting, the monitor's refresh rate is only 65 Hz, with a preset graphics mode reducing it to 60 Hz. At a 640 x 350 display setting, the refresh rate is able to reach 155 Hz, and configurable to 85 Hz.
- The S700 is plug-and-play equipped, meaning that there is no additional software required to install in order to use it. However, it uses a 15-pin VGA D-sub signal cable, and is not USB compatible.
- As a Plug-And-Play device, the Compaq S700 should be compatible with any Windows or Mac desktop that includes a 15-pin VGA port. However, the following systems are the only devices confirmed by the manufacturer:
