4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

The PLCD20P has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the PLCD20P which do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the LG IPS231P which has better reviews.

Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

At 178 degrees, the PLCD20P has a quite wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the PLCD20P. Similar spec PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the PLCD20P have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

With a display brightness of 300 candellas per square meter, the Panasonic PLCD20P has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the PLCD20P. The dimmest display brightness of LCD screens that have been around for a comparable time to the PLCD20P is 30 cd/m², the brightest is 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².

Chart Edit

Narrow

When compared to other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years that we have checked the width of, the Panasonic PLCD20P's width of only 460.4 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The widths of LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the PLCD20P range from 52mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that have been around for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The PLCD20P is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years, the PLCD20P does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been available for a similar time to the PLCD20P, the PLCD20P does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC screens with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413 ($450.99), or the U2713H ($689.99) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 is also worth considering.

The worst display resolution of all PC displays of this spec and age is 1366 x 768 pixels and the best is 2560 x 1600 pixels.

2 Other reasons to consider the Panasonic PLCD20P

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Panasonic released the PLCD20P.

LCD Display Type

The PLCD20P has a better display type than most medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This Panasonic LCD screen has an LCD display type, whereas most PC monitors of this type and age have an LED display type.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Eizo FlexScan EV2316 is also worth considering.

If you are looking for an LCD screen with a better display type then you might also want to consider the AOC e2250Swdnk (LED and higher rated).
