Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the GL2240, the Benq GL2240 does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with a card reader integrated and we think 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 is also worth considering.
