A monitor's display size is measured diagonally from the left bottom corner to the top right one and includes only the inside display area of the panel leaving out the frame; so you'll get 17 inches diagonally.

This list of the best 17-inch monitors is narrowed down to the monitors which have a display between 17 and 20 inches. Samsung and Viewsonic are typically behind some of the leading 17-inch monitors of the day with highly power efficient LED monitors with high definition screens.
