11 Reasons For
Only Released Seven Months Ago
Being released just seven months ago, this flatpanel monitor is likely to use better technology.
Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors
Medium monitors manufactured by Acer have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all LCD screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found dynamic contrast ratio on similar spec PC monitors that have been around for the last year.
Other flatpanel monitors that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available that you might want to look at include the Asus VP278H (£169.99) which has a better Rating; or the Asus VP247HA (£135.29), or the Acer K272HLEBID (£139.98) which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Acer R271 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the R271 also have a built-in speaker.
Alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper PC displays such as the Asus VZ249H (£150.99), or the Benq Zowie RL2460 (£170.61).
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the iiyama XB2485WSU-B3 (£203.20).
Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
PC monitors that were launched in the last 12 months have horizontal viewing angles of between 89° and 180°. The Acer R271 has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst PC displays of this age.
Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
When compared to other medium monitors that were launched in the last year that we have assessed, the Acer R271's vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees is one of the widest. The narrowest vertical viewing angle of recently released comparable spec LCD screens is 65°, the widest is 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
+6 More reasons for
Quite Big Display Diagonal
The screen sizes of new medium monitors range from 52cm to 690cm. At 69 centimeters, the Acer R271 has a quite big display diagonal compared to most of the other latest medium monitors.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months.
At only 3.1 kilograms, the Acer R271 is fairly light compared to most of the other PC screens that were launched in the last year. The weights of medium monitors that are a similar age to the R271 range from 2.6g to 33kg.
Quite Fast Response Time
At only 4 milliseconds, the Acer R271 has a quite fast response time compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for the last year. The response times of PC displays that were launched around the same time as the R271 range from 1ms to 20ms.
When compared to other recently released LCD screens that we have checked, the Acer R271's depth of only 33 millimeters is one of the shallowest. Newly released medium monitors have depths of between 7mm and 610mm, and the average depth is 110mm.
9 Reasons Against
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for the last year, the Acer R271 does not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413 (£279.00) is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer R271 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that were launched in the last 12 months are also not 3D compatible.
PC screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Acer GN276HL (£276.18).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Acer R271 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been available for the last year also do not have a built-in camera.
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.
+6 More reasons against
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many similar spec LCD screens that have been around for the last year.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and we think the Samsung C24F396FHU (£163.39) which has a better Rating; or the Viewsonic VA2759-smh (£174.63) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
If the display resolution of this LCD screen is too few for you then you might also want to look at the iiyama X2485WS-B3 (£216.62) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper), or the Philips 240S4QYMB (£245.56) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper).

Quite Dim Display Brightness
PC screens that were released around the same time as the R271 have display brightness of between 200 cd/m² and 800 cd/m². The Acer R271 has a fairly dim display brightness (only 250 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other newly released PC screens.

At 619.8 millimeters, the Acer R271 has a fairly typical width compared to most of the other new flatpanel monitors.
Other LCD screens with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Samsung S27E510C (£189.97) (623.2mm and cheaper).
