If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Philips 278G4DHSD[plb_1499355_price], or the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price] which also has a higher rating.

Alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the HP EliteDisplay S231[plb_2198924_price] or the AOC I2472[plb_2126699_price], or the Philips 272C4QPJKAB[plb_1532812_price].

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 29UB55 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to the 29UB55 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413[plb_1565290_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
