Q: How should I use the USB ports on my monitor?

A: Use them as a powered USB hub.

Some monitors, such as the Dell 1707FP/FPV, have built-in powered USB hubs. These can be used just like ordinary powered USB hubs.

Connecting Your Monitor's USB Hub

  1. Connect a USB cable to port 5 on the back of the monitor.
