6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The MultiSync MD242C2 does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as the MultiSync MD242C2 also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the MultiSync MD242C2 are not 3D compatible. The MultiSync MD242C2 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which also has a higher rating.

The NEC MultiSync MD242C2 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the MultiSync MD242C2 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The NEC MultiSync MD242C2 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the MultiSync MD242C2 also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£349.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92).

4 Other reasons to consider the NEC MultiSync MD242C2

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display and we think the Planar PLL2210W, and the Eizo ColorEdge CX270 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the display type of this LCD screen is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the AOC e2250Swdnk (LED) which is also higher rated.
