Has a Built-In Speaker

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Height Adjustment

With a maximum height adjustment of 150 millimeters, the G246HYL has one of the higher maximum height adjustments amongst medium monitors of this age. The maximum height adjustments of latest PC screens range from 20mm to 1,200mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 140mm.

Chart Edit

3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The Acer G246HYL has a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

A 3840 x 2160 graphics resolution is in fact the best resolution amongst all recently released medium monitors.

1080p Video Mode

This PC display has a 1080p video mode, which is the most frequently found video mode on recently released medium monitors.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port

The G246HYL is a one USB Type-A downstream port PC monitor.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months do not have a built-in camera. The Acer G246HYL is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the Lenovo X1 (£42.79) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The G246HYL does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this PC monitor and we think the 2408WFP, or the U2413 (£262.00) both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

Most recently released PC monitors are not 3D compatible. The G246HYL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Asus PG278Q (£359.99).

Chart Edit

Fairly Slow Response Time
