7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago have a built-in speaker, however the 279X6QJSW does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the Philips BDM3275 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens that were launched around the same time as the 279X6QJSW do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 279X6QJSW is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider include the DELL UZ2315H (£159.42) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 279X6QJSW is not 3D compatible. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to the 279X6QJSW are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Samsung S29E790C (£300.00), or the Asus PG278Q which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that are a similar age to the 279X6QJSW do not have an integrated card reader. The 279X6QJSW is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader to this PC display and we think the Benq SW2700PT (£523.19), or the DELL UP2715K (£799.89) is also worth considering.
