7 Reasons For

Benq Has Excellent Reviews for Its PC Monitors

Benq has excellent average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC screen range compared to other manufacturers.

Just Released Eight Months Ago

This medium monitor was only released eight months ago, so it is likely to have better features than some of the older PC monitors.

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on recently released comparable spec flatpanel monitors.

There are a number of alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to consider including a cheaper PC display such as the LG 34UC79G[plb_3813446_price], or the HP OMEN 32[plb_3943355_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC display such as the LG 34UM88C[plb_3289167_price].
