11 Reasons For

Good Size

A number of Acer 226WL owners said in their reviews that it was a good height. Patrick Ovenden said in his Acer 226WL review on Amazon “Decent non-glare screen with height and tilt adjustments” and rated the product 80 out of 100. Patrick Ovenden also mentioned “The stand is stable and has a height adjustment and vertical tilt”.

Robust

One Acer 226WL reviewer wrote in their reviews that the Acer 226WL was well made. George Puttock mentioned last year “Built well, great stand” in his review of the Acer 226WL.

Easy to Use

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was easy to assemble. Patrick Ovenden wrote “To get five stars from me it would just need to be slightly easier to assemble and have the ability to swivel from side to side” in his Acer 226WL review.

Good Brand

On average Acer medium monitors have good ratings as do all PC screens manufactured by Acer.

Recent Price Drop of £18.00

The price of the 226WL has dropped by £18.00 in the last 58 days.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that have been available for more than two years.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the Asus VS239[plb_1386925_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the 226WL which do not have a built-in speaker, the Acer 226WL has a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama B2280HS[plb_2538377_price], and the Philips 221S6[plb_2538505_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the iiyama B2280[plb_1520160_price].

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

The Acer 226WL has one of the higher maximum height adjustments (150 millimeters) amongst PC displays of this age. Medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 226WL have maximum height adjustments of between 13mm and 850mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm.

Chart Edit

Has Two Cables Included

The Acer 226WL has a greater number of cables included than most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to it. This LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to the 226WL. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this PC monitor.

Chart Edit

Light

Flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to the 226WL have weights of between 3g and 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. At only 3.1 kilograms, the Acer 226WL is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The Acer 226WL is one of the narrower medium monitors that have been around for more than two years (only 505.7 millimeters) amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age. Comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the 226WL have widths of between 52mm and 6,500mm.

LCD screens with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Samsung LS22C65[plb_1465732_price] (504.3mm and cheaper).

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The Acer 226WL is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 226WL are also not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The Acer 226WL is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other PC displays which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to look at including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer 226WL does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution

The Acer 226WL has a maximum display resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Across all medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 226WL the worst display resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels and the best is 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption When Off

When compared to other flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 226WL that we have assessed, the power consumption when off of the Acer 226WL of 3.5 Watts is one of the highest. PC displays of a similar spec and age to the 226WL have power consumptions when off of between 0.005W and 45W.
