LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of a similar age and spec to it.

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think the NEC MultiSync EA244 ($1,049.00) which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic VP2770 ($499.99), and the Samsung U28D590D which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The AOC U2868 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other LCD screens of this age and type do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available including the Eizo Foris FS2434 ($396.76), or the Asus MX299 ($300.99) which has better reviews; or the Eizo FlexScan EV2436WFS which is cheaper.

Fairly Big Display Diagonal

PC displays that have been available for a comparable time to the U2868 have screen sizes of between 50cm and 770cm. At 70.9 centimeters, the AOC U2868 has a fairly big display diagonal compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years, the AOC U2868 is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the BL2710, or the XL2720 both from Benq or the Acer XB280HK ($556.99) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years, the AOC U2868 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

The AOC U2868 does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the U2868 also do not have an integrated card reader.
