50000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Asus VE278 is 50000000:1. That's over ten times the contrast ratio of the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1. Across all PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the VE278 the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
We compared all the other PC displays that have a 50000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this PC monitor and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the AOC I2360PQ (£146.78) or you might consider a better rated flatpanel monitor such as the AOC I2260PWHU (£127.37) are also worth considering.
PC displays with a higher contrast ratio that might be worth looking at include the Asus VN248 (£102.81) (80000000:1) which is also cheaper.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
The average display diagonal of LCD screens of this age and type is 64cm. With a display diagonal of 68.6 centimeters, the Asus VE278 has one of the bigger screen sizes amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
10 Reasons Against

The Asus VE278 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and type to the VE278 also do not have a built-in camera.
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the DELL UZ2215H (£202.34), or the Viewsonic VG2437 (£163.84) which is also higher rated.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

If the display resolution of this Asus PC screen is too few for you then you might also want to look at the DELL UltraSharp 24 (£170.38) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated) or the Samsung LS24C65 (£144.00) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper).
