10 Reasons For
Low Running Costs
The T2224z is in the cheapest 14% of all 486 flatpanel monitors of this age and type that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the T2224z is only £34.
Has a Built-In Camera
Unlike most of the other PC screens that were launched around the same time as the T2224z which do not have a built-in camera, the Lenovo T2224z has a built-in camera.
Other PC screens with a built-in camera currently available that you might want to look at include the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price] which has a better Rating; or the Philips 221S6QYKMB[plb_3015788_price], or the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price] which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Lenovo T2224z has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been available for around the same time as the T2224z also have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth considering one of the other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Philips 277E6[plb_2563325_price].
We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Medion AKOYA P55664[plb_2837775_price], or the AOC I2770[plb_1565067_price] is also worth considering.
