6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Samsung is one of the better rated PC monitor brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Samsung also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC screen such as the Philips 240B4[plb_1476069_price], and the Neovo FM-27[plb_3011242_price] or you might consider a better rated PC screen such as the iiyama GB2888UHSU[plb_3121335_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Samsung NC221 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the NC221.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the LG 24MB67PY[plb_3937195_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer K242HQK[plb_2915138_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Samsung DB22D-P[plb_3364575_price] is also worth considering.
