Pro USB pass-through allows for easy access to ports
There are 3 total USB ports on this monitor: 1 is an upstream port (to connect to your computer), and 2 are downstream ports (which you can connect peripherals to, such as a mouse, keyboard, or an external hard drive. This allows you to free up ports on your computer, and also helps keep your cords managed in one spot.
Pro Minimalistic front looks unobtrusive
The front of the display is a single piece of glass, which looks attractive (almost like the front of a very large tablet). Beneath it is a mostly-clear plastic which lets raises the screen above the table or desk, and allows you to see the single photo-frame-like stand on the rear.
Pro Great stand allows for lots of flexibility
The single legged stand can be adjusted from 30 to 80 degrees, allowing it to stand mostly upright, nearly horizontal, or at any angle in-between.
For added flexibility, there are VESA mounting screw ports on the rear which lets you mount this to a wall or a monitor stand.
Pro Integrated speakers are included - no need to buy dedicated speakers
The built-in stereo speakers aren't the highest quality around, but they will get the job done in a pinch. It's nice to have them if you need to move your computer around, as it's less hardware and cords required to carry around.
Con Integrated speakers lack any impact
The speakers built-into the T272HUL may be stereo, but they don't offer a great listening experience overall. The bass is severely lacking, and clarity is alright for the odd soundbite but you'll want to add external speakers for movies or other media.
Con Very reflective screen isn't ideal
The screen is very reflective. It is best used in a dark area where there isn't other light to reflect.
Con Very poor menu UI
There are 6 physical buttons on the right side near the bottom which you have to use to navigate the menu. These feel very dated, especially on a monitor that costs over $800 considering there are better solutions like a joystick or even using the touchscreen itself.
