We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price] which is cheaper; or the Asus PG348Q[plb_3191125_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The 27UD68-W does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 27UD68-W.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
