5 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

PC display expert review site parentesis.com scored this flatpanel monitor 80 out of 100.

Excellent Brand

Benq is one of the best PC monitor brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Benq also has excellent ratings for its medium monitors.

LED Display

This LCD screen has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on LCD screens of a similar age and type to it.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most PC displays of a similar type and age to the GL2230 do not have a built-in speaker(s). The Benq GL2230 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The Benq GL2230 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the GL2230 are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Benq GL2230 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other comparable spec PC displays that came out around the same time as the GL2230 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The Benq GL2230 does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the GL2230 also do not have a card reader integrated.

We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a card reader integrated including the U3011[pl_1534149_price], the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL which also has a higher rating.
