8 Reasons For

Acer PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer PC displays and also specifically for Acer small monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B196 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the B196 which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the Asus VB199[plb_2444664_price], and the Benq BL902[plb_2048599_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Edge10 C185k[plb_1972331_price].

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer B196

Released Over Three Years Ago

Acer released the B196 over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The Acer B196 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most similar spec LCD screens that have been available for more than two years.

There are a number of other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available which you might want to look at including the Acer V196[plb_1498796_price] which has better reviews.

If the display type of this LCD screen is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Acer 176L[plb_2065796_price] (LED and cheaper); or the Philips 19B4[plb_1395263_price] (LED and higher rated).
