5 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One customer reckoned that the LG 25UB55 was not easy to use the menus. In October last year Bentech rated the product 3 stars and mentioned on Amazon “The menu is difficult to change inputs which is annoying as i do that often” in their LG 25UB55 review.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 25UB55 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Asus VG248QE ($207.99), or the Benq XL2411 ($245.99) which is also higher rated.
