9 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The 176L has an average running cost of only £21 over 5 years based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is in the cheapest 8% of all 264 similar spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer PC screens and also specifically for Acer small monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including the HP W1972a[plb_1398440_price], or the DELL E2014[plb_1978785_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer 176L has a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to the 176L do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Hanns.G HX194[plb_2199362_price], and the Acer 196W[plb_1498661_price] which is cheaper; or the DELL P2014H[plb_1740080_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
