Six USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The 23CAT42 is a six USB Type-A downstream port PC display. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years only have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We checked 3,264 user and expert reviews for LG PC displays and found that on average LG has good ratings. We also found that LG has good ratings specifically within its medium monitors range.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC monitors of this type and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the AOC e2250Swdnk which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 23CAT42 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the LG IPS231P is also worth considering.
