5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other similar spec PC screens that were launched in the last year have a built-in speaker, however the LG 27UD88-W does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Asus VA32AQ[plb_3878710_price], the AOC Q2775PQU[plb_3301606_price], or the Viewsonic VX2778-SMHD[plb_3627684_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The 27UD88-W is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out in the last year are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price]; or the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most latest medium monitors do not have a built-in camera. The 27UD88-W is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The 27UD88-W does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Pricey

The price range of new similar spec PC screens is from £40 to £1,164. We think that this LG PC monitor looks expensive compared to other new similar spec PC screens.

2 Other reasons to consider the LG 27UD88-W

OK Running Costs

This LCD screen is rated A for energy efficiency, and the average 5 year running cost of the 27UD88-W is £66 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 395 medium monitors that were launched in the last year.

Average Width

At 615 millimeters, the 27UD88-W has a fairly average width compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months.

We compared all the other 615mm wide PC screens to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the LG 27UD68-W[plb_3304971_price] is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to consider the DELL U2717D[plb_3307745_price] (611.3mm and cheaper).
