+5 More reasons for
Quite Big Viewable Size, Horizontal
The I2781FH has a quite big viewable size, horizontal (597.89 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the I2781FH. The smallest viewable size, horizontal of medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the I2781FH is 290mm and the biggest is 800mm.
Quite Big Viewable Size, Vertical
At 336.31 millimeters, the I2781FH has a fairly big viewable size, vertical compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec. The average viewable size, vertical of medium monitors that were released one year ago is 320mm, and the viewable size, verticals range from 230mm to 800mm.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions
This PC display has a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found supported graphics resolutions on comparable spec PC displays that have been around for more than a year.
Quite Fast Response Time
The I2781FH has one of the faster response times (only 4 milliseconds) amongst comparable spec PC displays of this age. The response times of LCD screens that were launched more than a year ago range from 1ms to 25ms.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)
Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than a year ago have a built-in speaker(s), however the I2781FH does not have a built-in speaker(s).
It is worth considering alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq EW2750ZL[plb_2885077_price]; or the Asus VC279H-W[plb_3154401_price].
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most PC screens that were released more than a year ago do not have a built-in camera. The AOC I2781FH is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the Philips 221S6QYKMB/00[plb_3015788_price], the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price], or the HP EliteDisplay E240c[plb_3059589_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Most similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than a year are not 3D. The I2781FH is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.
If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D then you might want to look at the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price].
Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated
The I2781FH does not have a card reader integrated, although this is within the context that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the I2781FH also do not have a card reader integrated.
+4 More reasons against
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on PC screens of a comparable spec and age to it.
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to it.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The display brightnesss of PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the I2781FH range from 200 cd/m² to 500 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². At only 250 candellas per square meter, the AOC I2781FH has a quite dim display brightness compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released one year ago.
4 Other reasons to consider the AOC I2781FH
Released Over a Year Ago
This LCD screen was released over a year ago.
Running Costs Are OK
The average 8 year running cost of the I2781FH is £83 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 500 flatpanel monitors of this spec and age.
£1.99 Price Increase
In the last fortnight the I2781FH has increased in price by £1.99.
+2 Other reasons
The I2781FH has an LCD display which is better than most comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for more than a year. Most PC displays that are a similar age to it have an LED display.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC screens that have an LCD Display currently available including the HP ProDisplay P221[plb_1604027_price], the AOC Q2778[plb_2770550_price], or the LG 25UM57[plb_2782463_price] which has better reviews.
If you want an LCD screen with a better display type then you might also want to look at the HP 24uh[plb_2697281_price] (LED and higher rated) or the Z23n[pl_3119934_price] (LED and cheaper), or the EliteDisplay E242e[pl_3172327_price] (LED and cheaper) both from HP.
