5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The 27MB85R-B does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens that came out more than two years ago which have a built-in speaker.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the 24CAV23, or the 27MB85 ($335.99) both from LG or the iiyama XB2776QS ($926.69) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

Most PC screens of a similar age and type to the 27MB85R-B are not 3D compatible. The LG 27MB85R-B is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Acer DA220 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most flatpanel monitors that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The LG 27MB85R-B is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the DELL UZ2715H or the 272P4QPJKEB ($833.35), or the C272P4QPKEW both from Philips are also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The 27MB85R-B does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with an integrated card reader and we think the UP2414Q ($839.95), the U2713H ($675.80), or the U3014 ($1,149.00) all from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

The average annual energy consumption of medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 27MB85R-B is 290kWh, and the annual energy consumptions range from 0.02kWh to 29,000kWh.
