LED Display Type

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

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Viewsonic VP2770[plb_1427446_price], and the Philips 278G4DHSD[plb_1499355_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Asus MX299 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been available for around the same time as the MX299 do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Eizo Foris FS2434[plb_2367743_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq BL2710[plb_1729060_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the AOC U2868[plb_2276998_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus MX299 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the 272G5DYEB[pl_3175233_price], or the 278G4DHSD[pl_1499355_price] both from Philips; or the Benq BL2710[plb_1729060_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Asus MX299 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the MX299, the Asus MX299 does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this LCD screen and we think the DELL U2413[plb_1565290_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Pricey

The cheapeast medium monitors that came out more than two years ago that we found costs £51 and the most expensive costs £5,421. We think that this medium monitor looks expensive for a medium monitor that has been around for more than two years.
