Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC screens that have been available for a similar time to the K212HQL do not have an integrated card reader. The K212HQL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader to this LCD screen and we think the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price], or the DELL UP2715K[plb_2678878_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
