5 Reasons For

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC monitors that have been available for more than a year.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VC239H[plb_2977758_price], and the Samsung LS24E510CS[plb_3844500_price] is also worth considering.
