A Bit Expensive

One Benq PG2401 reviewer reckoned that it was not good value for money. Expert review site Tomshardware.co.uk mentioned in their Benq PG2401 review “It is true that most of the monitors we review at Tom's Hardware are on the costly end of their respective segments”.

Most LCD screens that have been on the market for a similar time to the PG2401 have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports quantitys, including the Benq PG2401 which has one USB Type-A downstream ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

After checking the price of 502 PC monitors that have been available for more than two years they range in price from £43 to £9,999. We think that this LCD screen looks expensive compared to other PC monitors that have been available for more than two years.

The Benq PG2401 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PG2401 also do not have a built-in speaker(s).
