6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The DS-309W is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the DS-309W are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC D2769, or the Asus VG236 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The DS-309W does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the DS-309W also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other PC displays which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to consider including the 272P4QPJKEB, or the 241P4QPY both from Philips.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the DS-309W, the DS-309W does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the U2713H ($689.99), or the U2413 ($450.99) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most similar spec LCD screens that have been available for a comparable time to the DS-309W have between one and three HDMI ports, including the DoubleSight DS-309W which has one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Response Time

The response times of PC displays of a comparable type and age to the DS-309W range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms. At 7 milliseconds, the DS-309W has a fairly slow response time compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar age and spec to the DS-309W.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The lightest LCD screen of a comparable type and age to the DS-309W is 3g weight and the heaviest is 39kg. With a weight of 7.7 kilograms, the DS-309W is fairly heavy compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the DS-309W.

2 Other reasons to consider the DoubleSight DS-309W

Released Over Four Years Ago

This flatpanel monitor was released over four years ago.

LCD Display Type

The DS-309W has an LCD display type which is better than most PC screens that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most LCD screens that were released more than two years ago have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Eizo FlexScan S2133 ($946.99).

PC displays with a better display type that might also be worth considering include the e2250Swdnk (LED), the U2868 ($549.00) (LED), or the I2276 (LED) all from AOC which is also higher rated.
