8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The AccuSync AS242 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than a year do have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Medion MD20664 or the Benq RL2460HT ($148.99) are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Viewsonic VG2437 ($197.99), or the DELL UZ2315H ($214.99) which also has a higher rating.

2 Other reasons to consider the NEC AccuSync AS242

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when NEC released the AccuSync AS242.

Average Width

With a width of 571.4 millimeters, the AccuSync AS242 has a relatively average width compared to most of the other LCD screens that came out more than a year ago.

We compared all the other 571.4mm wide PC screens to this PC screen and we think cheaper LCD screens such as the Neovo LE-24 ($229.90) is also worth considering.

If you are not bothered about having a wider width then you might also want to look at the Samsung S24D340H (569mm and cheaper).
