Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The GC2870H does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq GC2870H

Released Nine Months Ago

Benq released the GC2870H nine months ago.

Running Costs Are OK

The average 5 year running cost of the GC2870H is £61 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 395 medium monitors that were launched in the last year.

LCD Display Type

The Benq GC2870H has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the Philips 221S6LCB[plb_3185742_price] which is cheaper.

If the display type of this medium monitor is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the Viewsonic VA2452SM[plb_3066057_price] (LED), or the Samsung S24C450B[plb_3807600_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.
