5 Reasons Against

Poor Sound Quality

One Asus PB328 reviewer who reviewed this PC monitor thought it did not have good sound quality. Ktp mentioned on Amazon “The quality of the sound from them is poor, affected not only by the lack of bass.” in their review of the Asus PB328 nonetheless they still gave this PC monitor a score of 5 stars.

Like most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and type to the PB328, the Asus PB328 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 241P6VPJKEB[plb_3021583_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
