9 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Philips 298X4QJAB reviewer who bought the product thought it was not thick. Techradar.com mentioned in their review on Techradar “A thick alphanumeric naming soup is unfortunately par for the course for PC monitors” but despite that they still gave it a rating of 80 out of 100.

Not 3D

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 298X4QJAB/27, the 298X4QJAB/27 is not 3D.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D then you might also want to consider the 272G5DYEB/93[pl_3175233_price], or the 238G4DHSD/93[pl_1499475_price] both from Philips or the LG D2343[plb_2590758_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens that came out more than two years ago do not have a built-in camera. The 298X4QJAB/27 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the 231C5[pl_1599727_price], or the C272P4[pl_2159253_price] both from Philips or the DELL UZ2215H[plb_2323495_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The Philips 298X4QJAB/27 does not have a card reader integrated, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC monitors of this age and spec also do not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC monitors with a card reader integrated and we think the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], the UP2715K[pl_2678878_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL is also worth considering.

Has speakers which are pretty good if limited to space on deck
Cheaper then the 29 in LG I have looks almost the same
NO MAC SOFTWARE TO SPLIT SCREENS (LG HAS IT
So to do that you have to buy it from apps store or use the free one
All black but I knew that when I got it , just needs a pretty frame in silver would've been nice
Also would've been nice if they would've put the right cables mini display port one and not the HDMI as the mac reads it as a TV NOT PRETTY THEN
