Poor Connectivity

Some LG 27MP48HQ reviewers concluded that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other LCD screens that have been around for the last year have a built-in speaker, however the LG 27MP48HQ does not have a built-in speaker.

Alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Asus MX27 (£309.40) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

Most PC screens that came out in the last year are not 3D compatible. The LG 27MP48HQ is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer GN276HL (£242.96), or the Benq Zowie XL2430 (£319.97).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 27MP48HQ does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other new PC monitors also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the 2407WFP, or the 2408WFP both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
