7 Reasons For
Acer Has Good LCD Screen Reviews
We checked 3,402 expert and owner reviews for Acer PC displays and found that on average Acer has good reviews. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the I2276 (£92.99), and the I2473 (£99.59) both from AOC or the Acer G237HL (£106.51) is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Acer 226HQ has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 226HQ also have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the HL226 (£89.99), or the HS221 (£89.98) both from Hanns.G or the AOC E2470 (£89.99).
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
Comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for more than two years have horizontal viewing angles of between 60° and 180°. The Acer 226HQ has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst medium monitors of this age.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years.
The Acer 226HQ is one of the lighter PC screens of a similar type and age to the 226HQ (only 3.2 kilograms) amongst medium monitors of this age. PC monitors of this spec and age have weights of between 3g and 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.
+2 More reasons for
With a width of only 508 millimeters, the Acer 226HQ is fairly narrow compared to most of the other LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the 226HQ. Flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 226HQ have widths of between 50mm and 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.
Other PC screens with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Samsung S22A450 (£99.99) (508mm).
9 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 226HQ, the Acer 226HQ is not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the HP LP2065 (£110.40).

Fairly High Power Consumption When Off
The average power consumption when off of PC screens that were released more than two years ago is 0.49W, and the power consumptions when off range from 0.1W to 21W. When compared to other LCD screens of this type and age that we have assessed, the power consumption when off of the Acer 226HQ of 2.5 Watts is one of the highest.
