The dimmest display brightness of similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for more than two years is 30 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,700 cd/m².

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips BDL3210Q is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the BDL3210Q are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which is also higher rated.

The BDL3210Q does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The BDL3210Q does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the BDL3210Q also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£349.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
