4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most comparable spec PC displays that have been available for a similar time to the 29UC88-B do not have a built-in camera. The LG 29UC88-B is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not 3D

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months, the 29UC88-B is not 3D.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D that might be worth considering include the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price].

Other PC monitors which also have a card reader integrated that you might want to consider include the DELL 2408WFP[plb_3249739_price] which also has a higher rating.
