We compared all the other PC displays that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Philips 240B4[plb_1476069_price], the iiyama GB2888UHSU[plb_3121335_price], and the Acer G257HU[plb_2983643_price] is also worth considering.

7 Reasons Against

Inferior Picture Quality

One customer reckoned that the product did not have a wide viewing angle. Pro Selfie Uk wrote in their review of the Acer XF270HU on Amazon “You have to decide whether you want a crappy tn panel with crappy viewing angle and washed out colors in exchange for super fast speed” however they still gave the product an excellent rating.

Not Robust

One person who reviewed it considered that it was not well made. This year Pro Selfie Uk mentioned in their review “Although it is not built like the asis rog range”.

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port

The XF270HU is a one USB Type-A downstream port flatpanel monitor. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The XF270HU does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC displays of a similar age and type to the XF270HU also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Samsung S29E790C[plb_2827679_price], or the iiyama B2783QSU-B1[plb_3011412_price] which also has a higher rating.
