Has Four Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the MD211G3 is more than most PC displays that were launched around the same time as it. This PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the MD211G3.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years, the NEC MD211G3 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the MD211G3 are not 3D compatible. The MD211G3 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago, the MD211G3 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The NEC MD211G3 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays of this age and type also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader to this PC display and we think the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

High Running Costs

The MD211G3 is one of the less economic to run PC displays of a similar type and age that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the MD211G3 is £181.
