9 Reasons Against

Not Cheap

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The MultiSync P242W does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been available for more than two years also do not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the NEC MultiSync V323[plb_2415101_price], the Asus PB279[plb_2524515_price], or the Benq BL3201[plb_2558150_price].

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC displays of this spec and age, the MultiSync P242W does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the Philips C272P4QPKEW[plb_3027868_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The MultiSync P242W does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the MultiSync P242W also do not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U3014[pl_1655695_price], or the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price] both from DELL or the Benq BL3201[plb_2558150_price] which is also higher rated.

The MultiSync P242W has a better display type than most PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years. This flatpanel monitor has an LCD display type, whereas most LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display and we think the iiyama XB2776QS[plb_1490325_price], the NEC MultiSync EA294WMi[plb_1501071_price], and the Philips 298P4[plb_1608300_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
