8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

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

Only Released Six Months Ago

This PC screen is one of the newest flatpanel monitors to be released.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens that have an LED Display and we think the 272B7QPJEB[pl_3697568_price], and the BDM3270QP2[pl_3846532_price] both from Philips or the Samsung U28E850R[plb_2868817_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
