10 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC screens Acer is one of the superior brands.

Price Drop of £5.01

In the last 32 days the R231 has dropped in price by £5.01.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer R231 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC monitors such as the E2275PWJ[pl_3342091_price], or the E2475SWj[pl_3357361_price] both from AOC.

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Acer R241Y[plb_3670274_price].
