12 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

This LCD screen received an expert rating of 80% from macworld.co.uk.

NEC Has Excellent PC Display Reviews

Medium monitors produced by NEC have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all LCD screens (not just medium monitors) and found that NEC also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Very Low Running Costs

This medium monitor is rated A for energy efficiency. The MultiSync E243 is in the cheapest 8% of all 993 PC displays of this type and age that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the MultiSync E243 is only £31.

Reasonably Priced

Some NEC MultiSync E243 reviewers concluded that this PC monitor was good value for money. Macworld.co.uk said in their review of the NEC MultiSync E243 “The NEC MultiSync E243WMi, promises to save you money – not in the initial purchase price.”. Macworld.co.uk also wrote “Specified at just 13W, this monitor ought to prove cost effective over time”. Macworld.co.uk also said “Share this article Find the best price #reevoo-top-three”.

Robust

Some customers who reviewed the NEC MultiSync E243 agreed that it was well made. Macworld.co.uk wrote in their review of this PC monitor “Nicely built, fully adjustable stand, excellent overall colour accuracy, well rendered text, good screen uniformity, decent sRGB coverage”.

Nice Design

One person who reviewed it concluded that it was neat. Expert website Macworld.co.uk wrote in their review two years ago “The display is neat and accurate, well-built” and scored it 4 stars.

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is typical of many PC displays that have been around for around the same time as it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Philips 239C4[plb_1395262_price], the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price], or the AOC I2460[plb_2045326_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MultiSync E243 has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the MultiSync E243 which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include the Philips 274E5[plb_1499782_price], the Benq RL2755[plb_2743325_price], or the iiyama GB2488HSU[plb_2185179_price] which has better reviews.

7 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One person who bought it thought it was not easy to use the menus. Macworld.co.uk mentioned “Menu system poorly implemented, more expensive than budget consumer designs” in their review of this PC monitor.

Price Increase of £39.60

The MultiSync E243 has increased in price by £39.60 in the last 59 days.

Not 3D

The NEC MultiSync E243 is not 3D. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years are also not 3D.

If you want a PC display that is 3D then you might want to look at the Benq XL2411[plb_2130532_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
