Alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the LG 34UC97C[plb_3016738_price], the DELL U3415W[plb_2678877_price], or the Asus PG27AQ[plb_3142487_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the S2716DG, the S2716DG does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The S2716DG is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that were released around the same time as the S2716DG are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Asus PG278Q[plb_3097078_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than a year ago do not have an integrated card reader. The DELL S2716DG is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit
