LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC screens of a comparable type and age to it.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the Philips 272G5, or the Samsung S27A850 which has a better Rating; or the LG 29UM65 (£301.88) which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of this type and age, the MultiSync A273 has a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the NEC MultiSync EA273 (£339.66) or you might consider a higher Rating flatpanel monitor such as the Fujitsu P24W-7 (£378.71), or the Benq BL2710 (£336.53).

10 Reasons Against
Difficult to Use
One NEC MultiSync A273 reviewer who bought this PC monitors thought it was not easy to use the menus. Macworld.co.uk mentioned “Middle of display brighter than everywhere else, boxy design, relatively low resolution for the size, dismal speakers, impossible to see menu controls in dark rooms”.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the MultiSync A273, the MultiSync A273 is not 3D compatible.
Like most of the other PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the MultiSync A273, the MultiSync A273 does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the 272P4 (£426.48), or the 231C5 (£429.96) both from Philips or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most PC monitors of this age and type do not have an integrated card reader. The MultiSync A273 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
It is worth also looking at alternative PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the Acer DA220 (£373.92), or the DELL U2713H (£371.00) which also has a higher Rating.
