6 Reasons For

2560 X 1600 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the DS-309W is 2560 x 1600 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels flatpanel monitor, which is the most common display resolution.

This PC display's display resolution (2560 x 1600 pixels) is in fact the best display resolution across all comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for more than two years.

A 1366 x 768 pixels display resolution is the worst display resolution across comparable types of PC display.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The DS-309W has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC displays of this spec and age which do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the LG IPS231P which has better reviews.

Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the DoubleSight DS-309W has one of the wider vertical viewing angles amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age. The average vertical viewing angle of PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the DS-309W is 170°.

Chart Edit

Very Many Display Colour Count

With a display colour count of 1,070 million, the DS-309W has one of the most display colour counts amongst similar spec PC displays of this age. The display colour counts of flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the DS-309W range from 0.21M to 1,100M, and the average display colour count is 100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The display brightness of medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DS-309W range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². With a display brightness of 370 candellas per square meter, the DoubleSight DS-309W has one of the brighter display brightness amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The DS-309W is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC screens of a similar spec and age to the DS-309W are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most comparable spec PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the DS-309W do not have a built-in camera. The DoubleSight DS-309W is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The DoubleSight DS-309W does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

Other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider include the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£371.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) which also has a higher rating.

Only One HDMI Port

The DS-309W is a one HDMI port PC monitor.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Response Time

Across all the LCD screens of this age and spec the response times range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms. With a response time of 7 milliseconds, the DS-309W has one of the slower response times amongst LCD screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The DS-309W is in the most expensive 1% of all 998 flatpanel monitors of this age and spec that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the DS-309W will cost £280 over 5 years to run.

Chart

Heavy

The lightest medium monitor that has been around for more than two years is 3g weight and the heaviest is 39kg. The DoubleSight DS-309W is fairly heavy (7.7 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago.

2 Other reasons to consider the DoubleSight DS-309W

Released Over Four Years Ago

This DoubleSight PC screen was released over four years ago.

LCD Display Type

The DS-309W has an LCD display type which is better than most flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. Most PC monitors that were launched around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We compared all the other PC displays that have an LCD Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV2316 (£56.03) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

PC screens with a better display type that might also be worth looking at include the AOC e2250Swdnk (LED and higher rated).
