Price

Not Cheap

The cheapeast LCD screens of this spec and age that we found costs £46 and the most expensive costs £9,999. We think that this medium monitor looks expensive for a PC monitor of this age and spec.


Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MultiSync PA242 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other PC monitors that are a similar age to this PC monitor which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this flatpanel monitor and we think the PA328 (£767.00), or the PA279 (£708.78) both from Asus or the HP ENVY 27 (£439.99) is also worth considering.
