LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC screens of a similar age and type to it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the Samsung S27B971, the NEC SpectraView 272, or the Eizo ColorEdge CX271 ($1,497.60) which has better reviews.

This PC display's display resolution (2560 x 1600 pixels) is actually the best display resolution amongst all LCD screens that came out around the same time as the MultiSync EA304.

Has a Built-In Speaker

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV3237 ($1,708.99), the Samsung S27B971, and the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display which has better reviews is also worth considering.
