Robust

Chart

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and spec.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Samsung S29E790C[plb_2827679_price], or the Benq BL2420U[plb_2885076_price] is also worth considering.

The 34UC87C is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec PC screens that came out more than a year ago are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The 34UC87C is in the most expensive 8% of all 505 PC screens of a comparable type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 34UC87C will cost £120 over 5 years to run.

Chart Edit
