Acer PC Screens Have Good Reviews
Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC monitors Acer is one of the superior manufacturers.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The Acer G247H 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 frequently found contrast ratio.
A 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is actually the best contrast ratio amongst all flatpanel monitors of this age and spec.
Amongst comparable types of PC display the worst contrast ratio is Mega Contrast.
There are a number of other PC displays that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Acer G276HLA (£149.99), or the Neovo FM-27 (£242.34).
+11 More reasons for
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G247H, the Acer G247H has a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung S27E591C (£237.30), the Acer B276, and the Fujitsu B24T-7 (£225.67) is also worth considering.
Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
The narrowest vertical viewing angle of PC displays of this age and spec is 10° and the widest is 180°. With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the Acer G247H has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to the G247H.
Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the Acer G247H has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC screens of this spec and age. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of medium monitors that were released one year ago is 18° and the widest is 180°.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the Acer G247H is more than most medium monitors that came out around the same time as it. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC monitor. The cables included AC|VGA are also found on this Acer flatpanel monitor.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Acer G247H has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 11% more resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC monitor, which is the most frequently found resolution. Similar spec PC monitors that were released around the same time as the G247H graphics resolutions range from 720 x 400 to 3840 x 2160.
The heights of PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the G247H range from 36mm to 930mm, and the average height is 360mm. At only 325 millimeters, the Acer G247H is quite short compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the G247H.
Quite Fast Response Time
The Acer G247H has one of the faster response times (only 4 milliseconds) amongst medium monitors of this age. The average response time of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than a year ago is 5.8ms, and the response times range from 1ms to 40ms.
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
Across all the PC monitors of this age and spec the annual energy consumptions range from 22kWh to 29,000kWh. With an annual energy consumption of only 29 kilowatt hours, the Acer G247H has a fairly low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the G247H.
The Acer G247H is quite light (only 2.6 kilograms) compared to most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the G247H. Across all the PC monitors of this age and type the weights range from 2.3g to 79kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.
At only 41.7 millimeters, the Acer G247H is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G247H. Medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G247H have depths of between 15mm and 700mm, and the average depth is 89mm.
4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Acer G247H does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the G247H also do not have a built-in camera.
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the UZ2715H (£412.25), or the UZ2315H (£187.25) both from DELL or the Philips 241P6 (£208.78).
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer G247H is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the iiyama B2783QSU-B1 (£249.97), or the Acer XB240H (£149.99) which also has a higher Rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that are a comparable age to the G247H do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer G247H is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to it.

5 Other reasons to consider the Acer G247H
Running Costs Are Average
The energy efficiency classification of this PC screen is A, and the G247H is typical compared to the other 486 PC displays of a comparable age and spec that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the G247H is £44.
Released Over a Year Ago
This PC screen was released over a year ago.
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on similar spec PC screens that were launched more than a year ago.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the FM-24 (£192.88), or the FM-27 (£242.34) both from Neovo or the Philips 231B4QPYCB (£192.18).

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution
The most display resolution of the Acer G247H is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL UltraSharp 24 (£171.00), the Viewsonic VG2438 (£199.19), or the Samsung S24E650DW (£183.12).
At 540 millimeters, the Acer G247H has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other PC displays that were launched more than a year ago.
