4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the P190S do not have a built-in speaker. The DELL P190S is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Samsung LT19C300 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The DELL P190S is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other small monitors that have been around for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Neovo C-17, or the Samsung SMT-1934 ($191.32).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The DELL P190S does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other small monitors that have been around for more than two years also do not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC screens of this age and spec, the DELL P190S does not have an integrated card reader.
