Chart Edit

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider including the 272P4QPJKEB[pl_2997140_price], or the 241P4QPY[pl_1398366_price] both from Philips which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LCD Display to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Eizo FlexScan S2133[plb_1735097_price] is also worth considering.

If the display type of this Acer PC screen is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] (LED) which is also higher rated.
