7 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Acer medium monitors have good reviews as do all PC screens built by Acer.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on LCD screens of a comparable age and type to it.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price], and the NEC MultiSync EA244[plb_2270820_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which is also higher rated.

Most flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 296CL do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer 296CL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering alternative PC screens which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.
