Chart Edit

1280 X 1024 Pixels Display Resolution

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

At 4 Watts, the Asus VB178T has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and type to the VB178T. PC displays that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated powers of between 0.5W and 10W, and the average RMS rated power is 2.8W.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D

The Asus VB178T is not 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays of a comparable type and age to the VB178T are also not 3D.

PC monitors which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the Neovo C-17 (£106.31), or the Samsung SMT-1934 (£133.00).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than two years, the Asus VB178T does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK207S (£124.99) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The Asus VB178T does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the VB178T also do not have a card reader integrated.

We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a card reader integrated including the Samsung LS20C300 (£69.99).

Only One Number of Loudspeakers

The Asus VB178T is a one number of loudspeakers flatpanel monitor. Most of the other LCD screens of this type and age have one number of loudspeakers.

With a display diagonal (metric) of only 43.2 centimeters, the Asus VB178T has a fairly small display diagonal (metric) compared to most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VB178T.
