1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many recently released PC screens.

Chart Edit

This PC screen has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the AS242W-BK. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this PC display.

The depths of new comparable spec PC screens range from 7mm to 610mm, and the average depth is 110mm. With a depth of only 50.4 millimeters, the AS242W-BK is fairly shallow compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were released around the same time as the AS242W-BK.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The AS242W-BK does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the AS242W-BK also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in camera and we think the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The NEC AS242W-BK is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the AS242W-BK are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price].

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most latest medium monitors do not have an integrated card reader. The AS242W-BK is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this PC monitor and we think the 2407WFP[pl_3247392_price], or the 2408WFP[pl_3249739_price] both from DELL is also worth considering.
