4 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The average 5 year running cost of the GL2251 is only £28 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the most economic to run PC screens of a similar spec and age.

Benq Has Excellent Reviews for Its LCD Screens

On average Benq medium monitors have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all PC screens manufactured by Benq.

LED Display

This PC screen has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on LCD screens of this age and type.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including the AOC e2250Swdnk which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the GL2251 which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the Benq GL2251 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the AOC D2769 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D

Most medium monitors that were released around the same time as the GL2251 are not 3D. The Benq GL2251 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

LCD screens which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Benq GL2251 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC screens of this spec and age also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic VG2437mc which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the GL2251 do not have a card reader integrated. The Benq GL2251 is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a card reader integrated including the U3011 (£899.99), the UP2414Q (£449.00), or the UP3214Q (£598.80) all from DELL which also has a higher rating.

Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the Benq GL2251 is 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display resolution of all PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the GL2251 ranges from 1366 x 768 pixels (worst) to 2560 x 1600 pixels (best).

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of medium monitors that have been around for more than two years is 0.5W, the highest is 49W, and the average RMS rated power is 5.5W. At only 2 Watts, the Benq GL2251 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other PC displays of a similar type and age to the GL2251.
