4 Reasons For

Samsung PC Displays Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors built by Samsung have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PC monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that Samsung also has good ratings across its entire range.

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on PC screens that have been around for a comparable time to it.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the Eizo FlexScan EV2736W[plb_1720119_price], or the Philips BDM3490UC[plb_3846531_price] which has better reviews; or the HP EliteDisplay E272q[plb_3060918_price] which is cheaper.
