We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the DELL S2715H[plb_3871204_price], or the iiyama XB2783HSU-B1DP[plb_2729280_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

The Asus VX278H does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other LCD screens of this age and type also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price]; or the HP EliteDisplay E221c[plb_2895033_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Asus VX278H

Running Costs Are Average

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the VX278H is £47, which is typical compared to the other 505 flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type.
