LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.
We compared all the other PC displays that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the AOC I2757F[plb_1402268_price], the NEC EA224WMi[plb_1412543_price], and the LG 24GM77[plb_2470022_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The GW2765HT has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper PC display such as the iiyama GB2488HSU[plb_2185179_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC display such as the LG 25UM65[plb_2194307_price] are also worth considering.
We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the AOC I2460[plb_2045326_price].
