5 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the S23C550 is only £33 over 5 years based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the more economic to run PC monitors of a similar age and spec.

Good Brand

Samsung has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire flatpanel monitor range.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on LCD screens of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest medium monitor that is a similar age to the S23C550 is 3g weight, the heaviest is 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. With a weight of only 3.1 kilograms, the S23C550 is one of the lighter PC monitors that were released more than two years ago amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Short

When compared to other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the S23C550 that we have assessed, the height of the S23C550 of only 190 millimeters is one of the shortest. The heights of medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the S23C550 range from 41mm to 4,800mm, and the average height is 380mm.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other PC displays of this type and age, the S23C550 does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The S23C550 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC screens of a similar type and age to the S23C550 are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display 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.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that have been around for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The S23C550 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The S23C550 does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and type to the S23C550 also do not have an integrated card reader.

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