7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The EliteDisplay E242 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC monitors of a similar type and age to the EliteDisplay E242 which have a built-in speaker.
It is worth considering alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Asus VS278H[plb_2969187_price], or the Benq GW2760H[plb_3402570_price] which is also higher rated.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to the EliteDisplay E242, the EliteDisplay E242 does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price], or the Viewsonic VG2437[plb_2780335_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most flatpanel monitors of this age and type are not 3D compatible. The HP EliteDisplay E242 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price].
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago do not have an integrated card reader. The EliteDisplay E242 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
