6 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The B246HQL is in the cheapest 7% of all 486 PC screens of a comparable spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the B246HQL will cost only £31 over 5 years to run.

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer flatpanel monitors and specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings.

100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The B246HQL has a maximum contrast ratio of 100000000:1. That's over twenty times the contrast ratio of a 5000000:1 PC display, which is the most common contrast ratio.

A 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is actually the best contrast ratio across all medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the B246HQL.

A Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio is the worst contrast ratio amongst comparable types of PC display.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including a cheaper PC monitor such as the Asus VP247T (£124.09) or you might consider a higher rated PC monitor such as the Acer G277HL (£144.97).

Has a Built-In Speaker

The B246HQL has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC screens of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the 241S6QYMB (£156.77), or the 284E5 both from Philips or the iiyama XUB2490HS-B1 (£159.46) which is cheaper.

Has One Cable Included

The B246HQL has a greater number of cables included than most PC monitors of this type and age. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC|DVI|VGA are also found on this flatpanel monitor.

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

The average maximum height adjustment of LCD screens of this age and spec is 130mm. The B246HQL has one of the higher maximum height adjustments (150 millimeters) amongst PC monitors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The B246HQL does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the B246HQL also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the Asus VK248H, the Philips 221S6QYKMB (£137.49), or the Lenovo T2224z (£169.00).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to the B246HQL, the B246HQL does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age, the B246HQL is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on PC displays of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many PC screens that have been available for more than a year.

It may also be worth considering one of the other LCD screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including cheaper PC displays such as the S23E650D (£139.97), or the S22E450M (£127.86) both from Samsung.

If the display resolution of this PC display is not many enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL UltraSharp 24 (£193.85) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated).

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer B246HQL

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this medium monitor was released.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to it.

We compared all the other PC displays that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus VX279N (£215.48) which has a better Rating; or the S23E650D (£139.97), and the S22E450M (£127.86) both from Samsung which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Average Width

With a width of 567 millimeters, the B246HQL has a pretty average width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the B246HQL.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other 567mm wide flatpanel monitors and we think because of it's better review score, the B246 (£171.55), and the K242HQK (£292.68) both from Acer is also worth considering.
