8 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

Based on average usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the B206 will cost only £25 over 5 years to run, which makes it one of the more economic to run PC displays of a similar type and age.

Acer PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

We checked 3,487 expert and owner reviews for Acer flatpanel monitors and found that on average Acer has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Acer has good ratings specifically within its small monitors range.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC displays of a comparable age and spec to it.

There are a number of alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to consider including the AOC I960[plb_2746828_price], or the HP ProDisplay P202va[plb_2898169_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B206 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for more than a year which do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Samsung S19E200BR[plb_3897846_price] which is cheaper.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Asus VB198TL[plb_3777553_price], or the Viewsonic VG939[plb_2780291_price] is also worth considering.
