4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most flatpanel monitors that have been around for around the same time as the LS19E20KBW do not have a built-in speaker. The Samsung LS19E20KBW is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the V7 L18500WS-9K (£63.59) or the V7 L18500WS-9N (£62.58) are also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The LS19E20KBW does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other small monitors that are a comparable age to the LS19E20KBW also do not have an integrated card reader.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The LS19E20KBW does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the LS19E20KBW also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC displays of this age and spec are not 3D compatible. The LS19E20KBW is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
