Reading some of these numbers quickly and informally for purposes such as informing and note taking (giving out room number at hotel reception, taking ID number for registration, or counting the number of sit-up's done), I would say the following:

107 > One-O-Seven

170 > One seventy

1007 > One thousand seven

1070 > Ten seventy

1700 > Seventeen hundred

1701 > Seventeen-O-One

17587 > Seventeen thousand five hundred eighty-seven / Seventeen thousand five eighty-seven

587 > Five eighty-seven (notice I took out the word "hundred" here)

In writing out a bank check (monetary amounts), I tend to reserve the word "and" for indicating amounts under a dollar.

For example: US$ 17587.69 = Seventeen thousand five hundred eighty-seven and 69/100 Dollars
To say it (not written on check): Seventeen thousand five hundred eighty-seven dollars and sixty-nine cents
Yes, for years you say seventeen-oh-one, or nineteen-sixty-six.

200x is still not clear - I've only heard one person say twenty-oh-seven. Most people all it two-thousand-and-seven.
