4 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

We calculated the average reviews for all Samsung flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Samsung small monitors and found that in both cases Samsung had good reviews compared to other brands.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many small monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think cheaper flatpanel monitors such as the Asus VX207 (£93.42), and the Philips 19P4QYEB (£173.23) is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The S20C300BL does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been around for more than a year also do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the Viewsonic VA2055SM; or the Fujitsu E20T-7 (£219.99) are also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Samsung S20C300BL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for a comparable time to the S20C300BL also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to look at including the Philips 200V4QSBR (£49.99).
