LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the E2314H[pl_2095841_price], or the S2216H[pl_3053834_price] both from DELL or the Acer G246HYL[plb_3026768_price].

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the DELL S2316H[plb_3055042_price], the iiyama X2283HSU-B1DP[plb_3049707_price], and the Asus VC239H[plb_2977758_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
