12 Reasons For

Excellent Owner Reviews

On average, people who bought this Acer flatpanel monitor rated it as 90%.

Very Low Running Costs

The B226HQL is one of the cheapest to run medium monitors that have been around for more than two years that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the B226HQL will cost only £27 over 5 years to run.

Acer Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We checked 3,487 user and expert reviews for Acer PC monitors and found that on average Acer has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B226HQL has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the B226HQL do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the Benq EW2440[plb_2076167_price], or the iiyama E2278H[plb_1390594_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Philips 273V5[plb_1569608_price] is also worth considering.
