8 Reasons For

Asus PC Screens Have Good Reviews

Asus medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all flatpanel monitors Asus is one of the better rated manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to consider include the XB2780HSU[pl_1370714_price], or the X2888HS[pl_2499669_price] both from iiyama which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Asus VX279 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens of this type and age which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think because of it's better review score, the LG 24EB23[plb_1497460_price], and the Philips 241P4[plb_1485096_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Acer V246[plb_1538971_price].

Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

At 178 degrees, the Asus VX279 has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other PC displays that have been around for more than two years. Flatpanel monitors of this age and spec have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Other PC displays which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the 231P4Q[pl_1394858_price], or the 272C4QPJKAB[pl_1532812_price] both from Philips or the AOC I2472[plb_2126699_price].

It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL U2713H[plb_1518815_price] which is also higher rated.
