Good Product Quality

Some Benq GW2265HM reviewers reckoned that it was good quality. Ctajuggler mentioned on Amazon “The screen quality is great and it is easy to move around the house, depending on where I code” in their review of this PC monitor.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including the LG 22MP57[plb_2766350_price], or the iiyama E2282HD-B1[plb_3052594_price] which is cheaper; or the Samsung LS24E510CS[plb_3844500_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other PC displays of this spec and age, the GW2265HM has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Acer G246HYL[plb_3026768_price] or you might consider a better rated flatpanel monitor such as the Viewsonic VX2263SMHL[plb_2974753_price].

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Viewsonic VX2457MHD[plb_3341736_price] is also worth considering.
