9 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Planar PLL2210W does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for more than two years do have a built-in speaker.
Not 3D Compatible
The PLL2210W is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the PLL2210W are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC d2757Ph.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC screens of this age and type, the PLL2210W does not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to look at including the Asus MK241 which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The PLL2210W does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this PC display and we think the U2713H ($689.99), or the UP2414Q ($839.95) both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
