9 Reasons For

Acer PC Screens Have Good Reviews

Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors Acer is one of the better rated manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC displays of this type and age.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B246HYL which do not have a built-in speaker, the B246HYL has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think because of it's better review score, the LG IPS231P[plb_1766654_price] is also worth considering.
