Most PC monitors that are a comparable age to the K272HU are not 3D compatible. The Acer K272HU is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Benq BL2710[plb_1729060_price], or the Asus VG278[plb_1410103_price] or the Asus VG27AH[plb_1426322_price].

The Acer K272HU does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays of a similar age and type to the K272HU also do not have an integrated card reader.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this LCD screen and we think the U2713H[pl_1518815_price], or the U2413[pl_1565290_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to it.
