LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of this age and spec.

If you want a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

The Philips 231B4QPYCB does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the 231B4QPYCB also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
