We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus BE24AQLB which is cheaper; or the iiyama GB2783QSU which has better reviews are also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LG 27UD68-P does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other latest medium monitors.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the LG 29UM68-P ($220.00) or the Asus PB287Q ($349.99), or the Acer B246WL ($267.99).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most latest similar spec PC screens are not 3D compatible. The 27UD68-P is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Acer GN276HL ($279.99).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 27UD68-P does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 241B7QPJKEB which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 27UD68-P, the 27UD68-P does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

At 609.6 millimeters, the LG 27UD68-P has a pretty standard width compared to most of the other PC monitors that have been on the market for the last year.

If you would consider a PC monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the Lenovo Pro2820 ($484.49) (665.9mm), the iiyama XB2485WSU-B3 (561mm), or the Asus BE24AQLB (561mm) which is also cheaper.
