We calculated the average ratings for all Lenovo flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Lenovo medium monitors and found that in both cases Lenovo had good ratings.

Chart

Has a Built-In Camera

The Lenovo L2251 has a built-in camera, unlike most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and type to the L2251 which do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Four USB 2.0 Ports

The Lenovo L2251 is a four USB 2.0 port PC display. Most of the other PC displays of this age and spec have between one and five USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The number of cables included found on the Lenovo L2251 is more than most LCD screens that came out around the same time as it. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on LCD screens of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the L2251 the widths range from 52mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm. The Lenovo L2251 is one of the narrower LCD screens of a comparable age and type to the L2251 (only 506 millimeters) amongst similar spec PC screens of this age.

Other 506mm wide PC monitors currently available that you might also want to look at include the HP LP2275w which has better reviews.

If you would consider a PC screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the LG 22EB23 (£159.47) (506mm).

10 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One person who bought the Lenovo L2251 wrote that it was not good value for money. Six years ago expert review site Pcmag.com mentioned “It's a bit pricey for a 22-inch monitor” in their review although they gave the Lenovo L2251 a rating of 70 out of 100.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for a similar time to the L2251, the Lenovo L2251 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago, the Lenovo L2251 is not 3D compatible.

If you want an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Lenovo L2251 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the L2251 also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£371.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92).

Across all medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the best display resolution is 2560 x 1600 pixels and the worst is 1366 x 768 pixels.

3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo L2251

OK Running Costs

The L2251 is typical compared to the other 998 comparable spec PC displays that have been around for more than two years that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the L2251 will cost £40 over 5 years to run.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this PC screen was released.

LCD Display Type

The Lenovo L2251 has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it. Most medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it have an LED display type.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Planar PLL2210W, or the Eizo ColorEdge CX270.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor with a better display type then you might also want to look at the AOC e2250Swdnk (LED and higher rated).
