8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Asus is one of the superior LCD screen brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Asus also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display

This LCD screen has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the NEC MultiSync EA244[plb_2270820_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
