8 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One customer said in their reviews that the product was not heavy and bulky. Two years ago Goldfries.com said “The monitor is really heavy and I”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most PC screens that are a comparable age to the XR3501 do not have a built-in speaker(s). The Benq XR3501 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV2750 (£650.53) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
