8 Reasons For
Based on 12,492 owner and expert reviews, Asus has good reviews for its PC monitors. Asus also has good reviews specifically within its medium monitors range.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Asus BE249QLB has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for the last year also have a built-in speaker.
There are a number of other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at including the Asus VP278Q (£188.53) which is cheaper.
Alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the Benq Zowie RL2460 (£170.61), or the Asus VZ249H (£150.99).
Has One Cable Included
The BE249QLB has a greater number of cables included than most recently released PC displays. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|DisplayPort|Mini DisplayPort|USB|VGA are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The horizontal viewing angles of similar spec PC monitors that have been available for the last year range from 89° to 180°. The BE249QLB has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other latest flatpanel monitors.
Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the BE249QLB has a quite wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that were launched in the last 12 months. Medium monitors that are a similar age to the BE249QLB have vertical viewing angles of between 65° and 180°.
1080p Video Mode
This PC monitor has a 1080p video mode, which is the most commonly found video mode on LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to it.
+3 More reasons for
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many latest similar spec flatpanel monitors.
The depths of medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the BE249QLB range from 7mm to 610mm, and the average depth is 110mm. At only 50 millimeters, the BE249QLB is fairly shallow compared to most of the other new similar spec PC monitors.
10 Reasons Against
£6.44 Price Increase
The price of the BE249QLB has increased by £6.44 in the last 58 days.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Asus BE249QLB does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the BE249QLB also do not have an integrated card reader.
Other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at include the DELL U2413 (£279.00).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most PC monitors that are a comparable age to the BE249QLB do not have a built-in camera. The Asus BE249QLB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
The BE249QLB is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other latest medium monitors are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Acer GN276HL (£276.18).
+7 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type

Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on recently released medium monitors.
There are a number of other PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available that you might want to look at including the Samsung C24F396FHU (£163.39) which has a better Rating; or the VA2759-smh (£174.63), or the VA2359-smh (£130.35) both from Viewsonic which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a PC screen with a more display resolution then you might also want to look at the iiyama X2485WS-B3 (£216.62) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper), or the Philips 240S4QYMB (£245.56) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper).

Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many new medium monitors.

Across all the medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year the weights range from 2.6g to 33kg. The Asus BE249QLB is quite heavy (5.8 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the BE249QLB.
