Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Expensive

The cheapeast PC screens of a comparable age and type that we found costs £51 and the most expensive costs £5,421. We think that this medium monitor looks expensive for a flatpanel monitor of a comparable age and type.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP x2401 does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the x2401 also do not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the HP ENVY 27[plb_1918669_price], or the Samsung S34E790C[plb_2580154_price]; or the LG 29WR30[plb_2247464_price].

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the x2401 do not have a built-in camera. The HP x2401 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1794077_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The HP x2401 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC screens of a similar age and type to the x2401 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider include the Asus PA279[plb_1588541_price], the Benq PG2401[plb_2083439_price], or the DELL UP3214Q[plb_2251540_price] which is also higher rated.
