10 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Only Released Eight Months Ago

Being released just eight months ago, this LCD screen is likely to have more advanced features.

LED Display

This PC display has an LED display, which is typical of many similar spec PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think the Acer K272HUL[plb_3837383_price] which has better reviews; or the Lenovo Pro2820[plb_2529020_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper PC screens such as the 29UC88[pl_3311693_price], or the 20MT48DF[pl_3707519_price] both from LG or the AOC AG241QX[plb_3811694_price].
