Pricey

We think this PC screen looks expensive compared to other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago. We checked 534 medium monitors that came out more than two years ago and they range in price from £51 to £5,421.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most medium monitors that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in speaker. The LG 27EA83 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the Philips BDM3470[plb_2512918_price], the LG 34UC97[plb_2591370_price], or the Asus PA279[plb_1588541_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very High Running Costs

The 27EA83 has an average running cost of £88 over 5 years based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the least economic to run flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart

Chart Edit

Like most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years, the LG 27EA83 does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL U3014[plb_1655695_price], the Benq PG2401[plb_2083439_price], or the Asus PA279[plb_1588541_price] which also has a higher rating.
