This PC display has an LED display, which is typical of many small monitors that are a comparable age to it.

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC screen such as the HP ProDisplay P202va[plb_2898169_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC screen such as the Lenovo LT1913p[plb_2938333_price] are also worth considering.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Connectivity

Some people who purchased the product wrote that it was not good in terms of USB connections. John wrote in his review on Amazon “Clearly this product is not built to USB 3.0 specifications”. Thomas Needham mentioned on Amazon “That's more than likely down to the power restrictions of USB ports” in his review of the Asus MB169B+.

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Ports Quantity

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for around the same time as the MB169B+, the Asus MB169B+ does not have a built-in speaker(s).
