7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium monitors built by Asus have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Asus VX278Q has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec PC screens that were released around the same time as the VX278Q.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Asus VC279H[plb_3380737_price], the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price], and the Philips 221P6[plb_2497489_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
