11 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)
Most flatpanel monitors of this age and spec do not have a built-in speaker(s). The Lenovo LT3053 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker(s).
There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the VG278[pl_1410103_price], or the PB278Q [pl_1443239_price] both from Asus or the Philips 272P4[plb_1489468_price] which also has a higher rating.
The cheapeast comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for more than two years that we found costs £46 and the most expensive costs £2,475. We think that this LCD screen looks expensive for a comparable spec PC display that was launched more than two years ago.
The Lenovo LT3053 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other LCD screens that have been available for a similar time to the LT3053 are also not 3D.
LCD screens which are 3D that might also be worth looking at include the VG278[pl_1410103_price], or the VG236[pl_2030776_price] both from Asus which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Lenovo LT3053 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and type to the LT3053 also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Philips 272P4[plb_1489468_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
+8 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated
Like most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age, the Lenovo LT3053 does not have a card reader integrated.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a card reader integrated to this PC monitor and we think the DELL UP2414Q[plb_2251567_price] is also worth considering.

Only One HDMI Ports Quantity
