We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV3237[plb_2503378_price], the Samsung S27B971[plb_1475646_price], and the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1794077_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other LCD screens of a similar type and age to the MultiSync EA304, the MultiSync EA304 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1794077_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the MultiSync EA304, the NEC MultiSync EA304 does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U3011[plb_1534149_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
