5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Asus PB258 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the PB258 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in camera and we think the DELL UZ2215H[plb_2323495_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price], or the iiyama B2783QSU-B1[plb_3011412_price].

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Asus PB258 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC displays that came out around the same time as the PB258 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price], or the DELL UP2715K[plb_2678878_price] which is also higher rated.
