Acer B246HYL 24 inch IPS Monitor Overview and Review
Acer B246HYL Review

8 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B246 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the B246 which do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper PC screens such as the Wortmann AG Terra 2230W[plb_1912525_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Hanns.G HS271[plb_2315339_price], or the Philips 241S6QYMB[plb_3027869_price].

I looked at many monitor reviews and tech specs, but no other monitor really met my needs for this price without having some quality issues. Acer is solid, the work out of the box with no issues
What it is: 24 inch IPS panel, 16 10 aspect ration, 6ms response time
Flicker free ( PWN Free
Very small bezel - keep in mind there is a 18 inch black space all the way around between the useable space and the bezel
What is it good for: Casual gaming, any kind of work related use, video or image editing, and all around general use
None of these are enough to take an egg of for
No HDMI - converter to DVI is inexpensive
Small black border around the screen- I do not mind, but its not obvious before you get it, they may have done this to help prevent light bleed
