2 Other reasons to consider the LG 38WR50MS

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when LG released the 38WR50MS.

LCD Display

The LG 38WR50MS has an LCD display which is better than most PC screens of a comparable age and spec to it. Most medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it have an LED display.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Benq GL2450HM (£109.72) (LED,LCD) which also has a higher rating.
