6 Reasons For

2560 X 1600 Pixels Display Resolution

The DoubleSight DS-309W has a maximum display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC screen, which is the most frequently found display resolution. Medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years display resolutions range from 1366 x 768 pixels to 3440 x 1440 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The DS-309W has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that came out more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include the LG 29EB73[plb_1599155_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a card reader integrated to this flatpanel monitor and we think the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], the UP2715K[pl_2678878_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
