5 Reasons For
Very Low Running Costs
The KA220HQ has an average 5 year running cost of only £32 based on average energy prices, which is in the cheapest 7% of all 505 flatpanel monitors of this type and age.
Acer Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews
Acer has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire flatpanel monitor range.
LED Display Type
