Has an Integrated Card Reader
The UP3216Q has an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the UP3216Q do not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL UP2715K ($650.00), and the Benq PV270 which has a better Rating is also worth considering.

The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC display. The cables included AC|DisplayPort|USB are also found on this flatpanel monitor.

Most of the other medium monitors that came out in the last year have a built-in speaker, however the UP3216Q does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the EV2750W, or the EV2750BK both from Eizo or the Acer XB271HU which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The UP3216Q does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other new medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.
