We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Asus VB199 ($106.99) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other small monitors that were released around the same time as the S19B420BW, the Samsung S19B420BW does not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of this type and age, the S19B420BW is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The S19B420BW does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age also do not have a built-in camera.
+2 More reasons against
