If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might also want to consider the Neovo C-17[plb_2287203_price], or the Samsung SMT-1934[plb_1414675_price].

Most PC displays of this age and spec do not have a card reader integrated. The FT200HQL is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with a card reader integrated and we think the Samsung LS20C300[plb_2185005_price] is also worth considering.
