7 Reasons Against

Inferior Technical Features

One Benq GW2870H reviewer who purchased the product reckoned that it did not have good features. This month Gadgetspeak.com mentioned “Lack of features” in their review of this PC monitor yet they still scored it 4 stars.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The GW2870H does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC monitors of this type and age.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Asus VC279H ($157.99), or the DELL UZ2315H ($214.99); or the Asus VX278Q are also worth considering.

It is worth considering other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Viewsonic VG2437 ($197.99), or the HP EliteDisplay E221c; or the DELL UZ2315H ($214.99).
