4 Reasons For

Benq PC Displays Have Excellent Reviews

On average Benq medium monitors have excellent reviews as do all LCD screens built by Benq.

LED Display

This PC display has an LED display, which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and type.

There are a number of alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to look at including the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq GL2250 has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the GL2250 which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the AOC D2769[plb_1563236_price].

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This PC monitor has a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D

Most similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago are not 3D. The Benq GL2250 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D that might also be worth considering include the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Benq GL2250 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the GL2250 also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Viewsonic VG2437mc[plb_1464473_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The Benq GL2250 does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the GL2250 also do not have a card reader integrated.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a card reader integrated to this LCD screen and we think the U3011[pl_1534149_price], the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL is also worth considering.

Only HD HD Type
