6 Reasons For

We checked 125 user and expert reviews for NEC PC screens and found that on average NEC has excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that NEC has excellent ratings specifically for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on latest medium monitors.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL U2412M ($211.99).

This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on comparable spec LCD screens that were launched in the last year.

Chart Edit

The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC,VGA are also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

Across all the comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for around the same time as the AS242W-BK the depths range from 7mm to 610mm. At only 50.4 millimeters, the AS242W-BK is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the AS242W-BK.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The AS242W-BK does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other new medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to consider including the Lenovo X1 ($59.99) which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other new medium monitors, the NEC AS242W-BK is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer GN276HL ($275.82), or the Benq Zowie XL2430 ($359.00).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The AS242W-BK does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other recently released comparable spec PC monitors also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader to this flatpanel monitor and we think the 2407WFP, or the 2408WFP both from DELL which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
