It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available including the GB2773HS[pl_2014648_price], or the XB2485WSU[pl_1448731_price] both from iiyama or the Asus MX279H[plb_1460434_price] which has better reviews.

The average vertical viewing angle of flatpanel monitors of this age and spec is 170°, and the vertical viewing angles range from 50° to 180°.

Chart Edit

Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

With a horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees, the Acer H276HL has a very wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to the H276HL.
