8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The NEC MultiSync EA294WMi does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the MultiSync EA294WMi also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the VG278[pl_1410103_price], or the PB278Q [pl_1443239_price] both from Asus or the Philips 272P4[plb_1489468_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Expensive

The price range of PC monitors of a comparable age and spec is from £46 to £2,475. We think that this PC screen looks expensive compared to other PC monitors of a comparable age and spec.

Not 3D

The MultiSync EA294WMi is not 3D. Most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the MultiSync EA294WMi are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might want to look at 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

Most PC displays of a comparable type and age to the MultiSync EA294WMi do not have a card reader integrated. The NEC MultiSync EA294WMi is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

It is worth considering other LCD screens which also have a card reader integrated including the DELL UP2414Q[plb_2251567_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC MultiSync EA294WMi

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when NEC released the MultiSync EA294WMi.

LCD Display

The NEC MultiSync EA294WMi has an LCD display which is better than most medium monitors that were released more than two years ago. Most flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago have an LED display.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including a cheaper PC display such as the iiyama B2776HDS[plb_1519015_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC display such as the Asus VG278[plb_1410103_price].

If the display type of this LCD screen is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the NEC MultiSync P232[plb_2831060_price] (LED and cheaper) or the Viewsonic VP2770[plb_1427446_price] (LED and higher rated), or the AOC U2868[plb_2276998_price] (LED and higher rated).

I create eLearning content and videos frequently. This monitor suits my needs well, was easy to hook-up to my MacBook Pro, and increased my screen real estate substantially. So far so good!
