8 Reasons For

Asus Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

Asus small monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors Asus is one of the better rated manufacturers.

LED Display Type

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

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP W1972a[plb_1398440_price], or the DELL E2014[plb_1978785_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Asus VB178T has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the VB178T do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the iiyama E1980SD[plb_1536630_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the E1780SD[pl_2236816_price], and the B1780SD[pl_2236791_price] both from iiyama are also worth considering.
