The MSI-AE2420 3D stands out on a lot of different points. Of course it comes with a 23.4" multi-touch full HD screen (1 920 x 1 080 pixels) like its competitors (HP, Packard-Bell, Asus…) but here, the screens pane is a little different. This LED screen running at 120 Hz integrates the 3D display technology which can be effectively viewed with the provided 3D glasses.
