10 Reasons Against

Pricey

The price range of LCD screens of a similar age and type is from £46 to £4,106. We think that this flatpanel monitor looks expensive compared to other LCD screens of a similar age and type.

Running Costs Are Very High

The efficiency rating of this PC screen is C. The PA242W-SV2 is one of the most expensive to run LCD screens of a comparable age and spec that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the PA242W-SV2 is £72.

Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the PA242W-SV2 have a built-in speaker, however the PA242W-SV2 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Acer Predator Z35[plb_3049491_price] or the Asus PA328[plb_2731937_price] are also worth considering.
