15 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Running Costs Are Very High

The average running cost of the Pro2840 is £81 over 5 years based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is in the most expensive 16% of all 998 PC displays of a comparable type and age.

Not Cheap

The price range of similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years is from £51 to £5,421. We think that this PC display looks expensive compared to other similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Pro2840 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Pro2840 also do not have a built-in camera.

Alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the C272P4QPKEW[pl_3027868_price], or the 272P4[pl_1489468_price] both from Philips or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this LCD screen and we think the DELL UP2414Q[plb_2251567_price], the Benq BL3201[plb_2558150_price], or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo Pro2840

Released Over Two Years Ago

Lenovo released the Pro2840 over two years ago.

LCD Display Type

The Pro2840 has an LCD display type which is better than most flatpanel monitors of this spec and age. Most medium monitors that were released more than two years ago have an LED display type.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL U2410[plb_1448035_price], the Philips 272P4[plb_1489468_price], and the iiyama XB2776QS[plb_1490325_price] is also worth considering.

If the display type of this LCD screen is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the HP 2211[plb_1397010_price] (LED), the Asus PB279[plb_2524515_price] (LED), or the LG 32LS33[plb_2362891_price] (LED) which is also higher rated.
