3 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the W2072a is only £36, which makes it one of the cheaper to run medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year.

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is typical of many medium monitors that were released more than a year ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL P2314H[plb_1632519_price], the Asus VS248HR[plb_3103889_price], or the Acer G237HL[plb_2266292_price].

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The HP W2072a does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than a year ago do have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the L23600WHS-9K[pl_3244153_price], or the L21500WDS-9K[pl_3244152_price] both from V7 which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
