8 Reasons For
Only Released Seven Months Ago
Being released just seven months ago, this medium monitor is likely to use more advanced technology.
We calculated the average reviews for all Acer PC monitors and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on new medium monitors.
Alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to look at include the HP VH22[plb_3791555_price], or the Benq BL2405PT[plb_3720983_price] which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other PC screens that have been on the market for a similar time to the R271, the Acer R271 has a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC screens such as the iiyama XUB2492HSU-B1[plb_3874093_price].
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Acer BE240Y[plb_3931519_price], or the Hannspree HT225HPB[plb_3382561_price] is also worth considering.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.
Has One Cable Included
The Acer R271 has a greater number of cables included than most recently released medium monitors. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this Acer LCD screen. The cables included AC,VGA,HDMI are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
+3 More reasons for
Quite Fast Response Time
Across all the recently released medium monitors the response times range from 1ms to 20ms. The Acer R271 has a quite fast response time (only 4 milliseconds) compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the R271.
With a depth of only 33 millimeters, the Acer R271 is very shallow compared to most of the other PC displays that came out in the last year. The average depth of recently released medium monitors is 110mm.
7 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer R271 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that came out in the last year are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most new comparable spec PC screens do not have a built-in camera. The Acer R271 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 241B7QPJKEB[plb_3861282_price] is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the R271 do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer R271 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
At only 15 degrees, the Acer R271 has a very narrow vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other latest medium monitors. The narrowest vertical viewing angle of recently released PC displays is 15°, the widest is 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
+4 More reasons against
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
When compared to other PC screens that are a comparable age to the R271, the horizontal viewing angle of the Acer R271 of only -5 degrees is one of the narrowest. The horizontal viewing angles of medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the R271 range from -5° to 180°.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Fairly High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode
The Acer R271 has a fairly high power consumption when in PowerSave mode (26 Watts) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the R271. The lowest power consumption when in PowerSave mode of newly released medium monitors is 0.21W and the highest is 52W.
1 Other reason to consider the Acer R271
At 619.8 millimeters, the Acer R271 has a fairly typical width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were launched in the last year.
Flatpanel monitors with a wider width that might be worth looking at include the Samsung S27F350FHU[plb_3355050_price] (626.2mm and cheaper).
