11 Reasons For

Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

Medium monitors manufactured by Viewsonic have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Viewsonic also has good ratings across its entire range.

Only Released Six Months Ago

Being released just six months ago, this Viewsonic flatpanel monitor is likely to have more advanced features.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the LG 27UD58[plb_3761590_price], or the Benq GL2706PQ[plb_3720986_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price], or the LG 34UM68-P[plb_3285146_price].

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the AOC Q2775PQU[plb_3301606_price] is also worth considering.
