8 Reasons For

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on comparable spec PC displays that have been around for more than a year.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think the AOC Q2577PWQ (£214.98) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
