3 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 3,487 expert and user reviews for Acer PC screens and found that on average Acer has good reviews. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically within its small monitors range.

1440 X 900 (WXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer V196 is 1440 x 900 (WXGA+). That's 1% more resolution than a 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) flatpanel monitor, which is the most common resolution. The resolution of all PC screens of this type and age ranges from 640 x 350 (worst) to 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (best).

Chart Edit

Has Two Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the Acer V196 is more than most comparable spec LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago. This PC display has a VGA cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on LCD screens of a similar age and type to the V196. The cable included "AC" is also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the V196, the Acer V196 does not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth considering other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the iiyama B1780SD[plb_2236791_price] or the Acer 176L[plb_2065796_price].

Not 3D Compatible

Most small monitors that have been available for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The Acer V196 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Neovo C-17[plb_2287203_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the V196, the Acer V196 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer V196 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the V196 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer V196

Released Over Three Years Ago

This PC display was released over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The Acer V196 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most PC displays of a similar age and type to it.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display and we think the Compaq LA1905wg[pl_1479492_price], and the LE1901[pl_1528862_price] both from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.

PC monitors with a better display type that might also be worth looking at include the HP W1972a[plb_1398440_price] (LED), the Acer 196L[plb_1960413_price] (LED), or the Asus VW199TL[plb_2951688_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.

1440 X 900 Pixels Display Resolution

The Acer V196 has a maximum display resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. That's 1% less display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.

Chart Edit

Average Width

With a width of 439 millimeters, the Acer V196 has a fairly average width compared to most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the V196.

PC screens with a wider width that might be worth considering include the Acer 196W[plb_1498661_price] (440mm) which is also cheaper.

Reviewed 6 February 2015 by Kristian B.
(Verified Purchase)

Bought this initially to have a duo monitor setup with an older Acer AL2223W, just bought another one to replace it...

Bright, clear, multiple inputs, doesn't take too much space
Backplate isn't like traditional Acer monitors, was weird getting it sturdy (not worth taking a point off over)
Reviewed 18 March 2014 by Not a review writer

The connection to the base seem shaky. The tilt is limited... Otherwise a good product for the price...
