12 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all NEC PC screens and also specifically for NEC medium monitors and found that in both cases NEC had excellent ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The NEC MultiSync E324 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other PC screens of this type and age do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama B2888UHSU[plb_2367537_price], and the LG 29EA93[plb_1469655_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the Samsung TC241W[plb_1471612_price] is also worth considering.

LCD Display Type

The MultiSync E324 has an LCD display type which is better than most PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to it. Most flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to it have an LED display type.
