8 Reasons Against

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the MD242, the NEC MD242 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

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