5 Reasons For

Only Released Five Months Ago

This LCD screen was released just five months ago.

Acer Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

On average Acer medium monitors have good ratings as do all flatpanel monitors built by Acer.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer TFTs has a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the TFTs also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer TFTs is 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the TFTs are not 3D compatible. The Acer TFTs is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer TFTs does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the TFTs also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at including the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out in the last year, the Acer TFTs does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader to this PC screen and we think the 2407WFP[pl_3247392_price], or the 2408WFP[pl_3249739_price] both from DELL which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very High Running Costs

The energy efficiency rating of this flatpanel monitor is C, and the TFTs is one of the least economic to run new LCD screens that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the TFTs is £83.


Only One HDMI Port

The Acer TFTs is a one HDMI port flatpanel monitor.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Annual Energy Consumption

The lowest annual energy consumption of latest similar spec PC monitors is 23kWh and the highest is 140kWh. With an annual energy consumption of 75 kilowatt hours, the Acer TFTs has one of the higher annual energy consumptions amongst comparable spec PC screens of this age.

1 Other reason to consider the Acer TFTs

Other 614mm wide PC displays currently available that you might also want to consider include the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] which has better reviews.
