8 Reasons For

LG LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

On average LG medium monitors have good ratings as do all LCD screens produced by LG.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 38WR50MS has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and type to the 38WR50MS do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus PQ321QE[plb_1584790_price] is also worth considering.
