6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Compaq LA2405 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to the Compaq LA2405 also do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Asus MK241[plb_2332619_price], or the Viewsonic VG2428WM[plb_1530993_price].
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the Compaq LA2405 are not 3D compatible. The Compaq LA2405 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
PC displays which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the Asus VG23AH[plb_1411330_price], the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Benq XL2411T[plb_1522088_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC monitors of this type and age, the HP Compaq LA2405 does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in camera and we think the 241P4QPY[pl_1398366_price], or the 231C5[pl_1599727_price] both from Philips or the Apple 27" Cinema Display[plb_1999154_price] is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that are a similar age to the Compaq LA2405 do not have an integrated card reader. The HP Compaq LA2405 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to look at including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], the U2713H[pl_1518815_price], or the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price] all from DELL which is also higher rated.
