This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC displays of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Light

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Benq RL2240 does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the RL2240 also do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the AOC e2260Swhu[plb_1364850_price], the Samsung 320MXN-3[plb_1365711_price], or the Neovo HX-24[plb_1886037_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

Most flatpanel monitors of this age and spec are not 3D compatible. The Benq RL2240 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the D2769[pl_1563236_price], or the d2757Ph[pl_1515695_price] both from AOC or the NEC MultiSync P241[plb_2071945_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the RL2240, the Benq RL2240 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1715481_price], the Philips C272P4[plb_2159253_price], or the Lenovo LT2323z[plb_1417526_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Benq RL2240 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC displays of a comparable type and age to the RL2240 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this flatpanel monitor and we think the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
