+4 More reasons for
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Asus VX279H has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC screens of this spec and age.
There are a number of other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the LG 29UC97 which has a better Rating.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to it.

With a power consumption when in PowerSave mode of only 0.5 Watts, the Asus VX279H has a quite low power consumption when in PowerSave mode compared to most of the other PC monitors that were released one year ago.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most flatpanel monitors of a similar spec and age to the VX279H do not have a built-in camera. The Asus VX279H is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Viewsonic VG2437 (£163.36), or the DELL UZ2215H (£202.04) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that came out around the same time as the VX279H are not 3D compatible. The Asus VX279H is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you want a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the iiyama B2783QSU-B1 (£249.97), or the Acer XB240H (£149.99) which also has a higher Rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Asus VX279H does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other PC screens of this spec and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader including the SW2700PT (£523.19), or the BL3201 (£650.71) both from Benq or the DELL UP3214Q (£598.80).
Quite Low RMS Rated Audio Power
Across all the comparable spec PC displays that have been around for more than a year the RMS rated audio powers range from 1W to 18W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.4W. The Asus VX279H has a very low RMS rated audio power (only 1.5 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to the VX279H.

We compared all the other PC screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VX279N (£215.48) is also worth considering.
If the display resolution of this flatpanel monitor is too few for you then you might also want to look at the HP DreamColor LP2480zx (1920 x 1200) which also has a higher rating.
Fairly High Average Power Consumption
