Price Drop of £7.57

In the last 11 days the 196L has dropped in price by £7.57.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on LCD screens of a similar age and spec to it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the HP W1972a[plb_1398440_price], and the Asus VW199TL[plb_2951688_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Philips 200S4[plb_2083761_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the Acer 196W[plb_1498661_price], or the Hanns.G HX194[plb_2199362_price].
