3 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Small monitors built by Benq have excellent reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just small monitors) and found that Benq also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Viewable Width

At 410 millimeters, the Benq GL950A has a quite big viewable width compared to most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age. The viewable widths of small monitors that were released around the same time as the GL950A range from 190mm to 520mm.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Benq GL950A does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other PC screens of a similar type and age to the GL950A also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other PC screens of this type and age, the Benq GL950A is not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Neovo C-17, or the Samsung SMT-1934 ($383.99).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other small monitors that have been available for more than two years, the Benq GL950A does not have a built-in camera.

Alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Asus VK207 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most small monitors that were released more than two years ago do not have an integrated card reader. The Benq GL950A is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

The Benq GL950A has a maximum display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. That's 20% less display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels. Across all comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the GL950A the best display resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels and the worst is 1024 x 768 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Viewable Height

At only 230 millimeters, the Benq GL950A has a fairly small viewable height compared to most of the other small monitors that were released around the same time as the GL950A. Across all the similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago the viewable heights range from 110mm to 440mm, and the average viewable height is 260mm.
