4 Reasons For

Benq Flatpanel Monitors Have Excellent Reviews

Benq small monitors have excellent ratings on average and across all PC screens Benq is one of the leading manufacturers.

Running Costs Are Low

The average running cost of the GL950A is only £25 over 5 years based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the more economic to run LCD screens of this type and age.

LED Display

This LCD screen has an LED display, which is typical of many small monitors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Viewable Size, Horizontal

The average viewable size, horizontal of small monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the GL950A is 370mm, and the viewable size, horizontals range from 190mm to 540mm. The Benq GL950A has a quite big viewable size, horizontal (410 millimeters) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq GL950A does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other small monitors that were launched around the same time as the GL950A also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Most flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to the GL950A are not 3D. The Benq GL950A is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D then you might want to consider the Neovo C-17[plb_2287203_price], or the Samsung SMT-1934[plb_1414675_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC screens of this type and age do not have a built-in camera. The Benq GL950A is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the Asus VK207S[plb_1488454_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The Benq GL950A does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other PC monitors that are a similar age to the GL950A also do not have a card reader integrated.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a card reader integrated to this LCD screen and we think the Samsung LS20C300[plb_2185005_price] is also worth considering.

With a viewable size, vertical of only 230 millimeters, the Benq GL950A has a quite small viewable size, vertical compared to most of the other LCD screens that were released more than two years ago.
