Good Brand

Easy to Use

One person wrote in their reviews that this PC monitor was easy to use the menus. A few weeks ago Paul B said “Menus are clear and easy to navigate, though everything is done through the touch sensitive buttons” in his review of the Viewsonic XG2401.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on latest medium monitors.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper PC screens such as the Samsung S27E510C[plb_2792915_price], or the Acer S271HLF[plb_3820539_price].

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC screens such as the Benq GW2765HE[plb_3831331_price].

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 271S7QJMB[plb_3822623_price], or the AOC I2775PQU[plb_3357274_price] is also worth considering.
