Six USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The Samsung TC242W has more USB Type-A downstream ports than most of the PC monitors that are a similar age to the TC242W.

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

Medium monitors built by Samsung have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all LCD screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Samsung also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the TC242W, the Samsung TC242W has a built-in speaker.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer Predator XB281HK which is cheaper; or the Asus PG279Q ($633.99), and the LG 34UM95C ($589.00) which has better reviews are also worth considering.
