7 Reasons For

Only Released Eight Months Ago

This PC screen has only been on the market for eight months.

Good Brand

PC displays manufactured by LG have an average rating of 85%, which is in the top 70% of all flatpanel monitor manufacturers that we have analysed.

Has an Integrated Card Reader

The LG 86BH5C has an integrated card reader, unlike most of the other large monitors that are a similar age to the 86BH5C which do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the LG 75UH5C is also worth considering.

Quite Low Maximum Power Consumption

The lowest maximum power consumption of recently released PC displays is 160W, the highest is 500W, and the average maximum power consumption is 270W.

Chart Edit

1100:1 Typical Contrast Ratio

The highest typical contrast ratio of the LG 86BH5C is 1100:1. That's 10% more typical contrast ratio than the most common typical contrast ratio of 1000:1.

An 1100:1 typical contrast ratio is in fact the best typical contrast ratio across all new LCD screens.

The worst typical contrast ratio amongst comparable types of PC display is 1000:1.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The LG 86BH5C does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other large monitors that are a comparable age to the 86BH5C do have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Infocus INF6511AG is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 86BH5C is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as the 86BH5C are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most large monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 86BH5C do not have a built-in camera. The LG 86BH5C is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The LG 86BH5C is a one HDMI port flatpanel monitor. Most of the other new large monitors have between one and four HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

The LG 86BH5C is very wide (2,159 millimeters) compared to most of the other PC monitors that came out in the last year. The narrowest large monitor that has been around for around the same time as the 86BH5C is 940mm wide, the widest is 2,200mm, and the average width is 1,300mm.

PC monitors with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the LG 75UH5C (1,681mm).
