The average display brightness of flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago is 250 cd/m².

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other PC monitors that came out around the same time as the 946, the Adafruit 946 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The Adafruit 946 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the 946 are also not 3D.

LCD screens which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the Neovo C-17[plb_2287203_price], or the Samsung SMT-1934[plb_1414675_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Adafruit 946 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the 946 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus VK207S[plb_1488454_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most small monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 946 do not have a card reader integrated. The Adafruit 946 is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC screens which also have a card reader integrated including the Samsung LS20C300[plb_2185005_price].

Quite Small Display Diagonal (metric)

When compared to other small monitors that came out more than two years ago that we have assessed, the Adafruit 946's display diagonal (metric) of only 11 centimeters is one of the smallest. Flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to the 946 have display diagonal (metric)s of between 8.9cm and 490cm.

2 Other reasons to consider the Adafruit 946

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this LCD screen was released.

LCD Display

The Adafruit 946 has an LCD display which is better than most flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to it. Most PC monitors of this spec and age have an LED display.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Philips 200S4[plb_2083761_price].

If you are looking for a PC display with a better display type then you might also want to look at the Neovo C-17[plb_2287203_price] (LED), or the Acer K202HQ[plb_2199575_price] (LED).
