12 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer is one of the superior LCD screen manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Acer also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on LCD screens of this type and age.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the iiyama XB2780HSU[plb_1370714_price], and the Fujitsu P24W-7[plb_2539431_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer K272HU has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the K272HU which do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper PC screen such as the Acer CB280HK[plb_2383844_price], or the Eizo FlexScan EV2455[plb_2527292_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC screen such as the Fujitsu P24W-7[plb_2539431_price].

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

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].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer K272HU does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the K272HU also do not have a built-in camera.

Other PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the HP EliteDisplay S231[plb_2198924_price]; or the Philips 272P4[plb_1489468_price], or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price].

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

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.

Read more Less Chart Edit

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.

The stand is not as good as others, it is a fixed stand and does not have height adjustment, etc. However, it is still better than most Korean monitor stand. The title says IPS but it is AH-VA panel.
