7 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One customer reckoned that this PC monitor was not cheap. Expert review site Uk.hardware.info mentioned in their review of the Benq RL2450HT “We would even go as far as saying that the RL2450HT is a better gaming screen than the significantly more expensive 120 Hz XL2420T”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The RL2450HT does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the RL2450HT also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth considering other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the AOC e2260Swhu[plb_1364850_price], the Acer CB280HK[plb_2383844_price], or the Philips 221TE5LB/00[plb_1546652_price] which is also higher rated.

Not 3D

Most PC screens of this type and age are not 3D. The RL2450HT is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D then you might also want to look at the 272G5DYEB/93[pl_3175233_price], or the 238G4DHSD/94[pl_1499475_price] both from Philips or the NEC MultiSync MD302[plb_2074434_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC screens that are a comparable age to the RL2450HT do not have a built-in camera. The RL2450HT is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider including the NEC MD211[plb_2590565_price], the Philips C272P4[plb_2159253_price], or the Viewsonic VG2437mc[plb_1464473_price].

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The RL2450HT does not have a card reader integrated, although keep in mind that most of the other PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the RL2450HT also do not have a card reader integrated.

We think you might also be interested in other PC monitors which also have a card reader integrated including 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.
