5 Reasons For
Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all LCD screens Acer is one of the better rated manufacturers.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the Asus VS239[plb_1386925_price], or the Benq BL2201[plb_2333127_price] which has better reviews; or the Samsung S22A450[plb_1388338_price] which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Acer 246HL has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the 246HL which do not have a built-in speaker.
Other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include the Samsung S22C450[plb_1534747_price] which has better reviews; or the LG 22MB65[plb_2245646_price] which is cheaper.
There are a number of alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the iiyama B2280HS[plb_1437611_price].
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years.
Has Two Cables Included
The Acer 246HL has a greater number of cables included than most similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on PC screens that were released more than two years ago. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this PC display.
5 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer 246HL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], or the Acer XB240H[plb_2719156_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Acer 246HL does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the 246HL also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Acer 246HL does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have an integrated card reader.
Only HD HD Type
This PC monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

The average power consumption when off of medium monitors that were released more than two years ago is 0.57W, and the power consumptions when off range from 0.005W to 45W.
