Computer monitor test  Asus vp278h

7 Reasons For

Asus Has Good PC Display Reviews

Based on 13,047 expert and user reviews, Asus has good reviews for its PC monitors. Asus also has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other PC displays that were launched in the last year, the Asus VP278H has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think cheaper LCD screens such as the Acer B246HL[plb_3782967_price], and the iiyama B2483HSU-B1DP[plb_3332296_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the AOC G2778VQ-27[plb_3414053_price].
