5 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The HKC 2612A has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC screens of this age and type do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the LG IPS231P is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years.

9 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

A few people who reviewed it considered that it was not a good size.

A Bit Expensive

A number of HKC 2612A reviewers who reviewed the product reckoned that it was not good value for money. Paul said in his review of the HKC 2612A “7 1 dead pixel - (not an issue for me) Great product for the price 4* given due to pixel”.

Running Costs Are Very High

The 2612A is in the most expensive 17% of all 998 PC monitors of a comparable age and type that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 2612A will cost £79 over 5 years to run.

Not 3D Compatible

Most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 2612A are not 3D compatible. The HKC 2612A is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display 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 an Integrated Card Reader

The HKC 2612A does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and type to the 2612A also do not have an integrated card reader.

Alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at 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.
