Reasonably Priced

One person who bought this PC monitor concluded that it was good value for money. Expert website Uk.hardware.info wrote in their review of the LG IPS231P “Either you could get an affordable screen with a TN panel, or an extremely expensive yet superior one with IPS panel”.

LED Display

This PC monitor has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on PC screens of this spec and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung S27D590[plb_2243830_price], or the Benq BL2201[plb_2333127_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
