9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The DELL S2240 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the 284E5[pl_2083714_price], or the 275C5QHAW[pl_3174546_price] both from Philips which is also cheaper.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The DELL S2240 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other LCD screens of this type and age also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the Philips 231P4Q[plb_1394858_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The DELL S2240 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2713H[plb_1518815_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
