We think you might also be interested in other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the AOC d2757Ph which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

The ColorEdge CX270 is not 3D. Most of the other comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the ColorEdge CX270 are also not 3D.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D then you might want to look at the Asus VG23AH, the AOC d2757Ph, or the Benq XL2411T which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a card reader integrated to this PC display and we think the U3011, or the UP2414Q (£800.00) both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
