Acer Has Good PC Screen Reviews
Acer is one of the superior flatpanel monitor manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Acer also has good ratings for its medium monitors.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The V226HQL has a maximum contrast ratio of 100000000:1. That's over twenty times the contrast ratio of a 5000000:1 PC display, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio.
A 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is actually the best contrast ratio across all PC screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the V226HQL.
The worst contrast ratio amongst similar types of LCD screen is Mega Contrast.
Other PC screens that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available that you might also want to look at include the Acer H277HU (£269.99) which has a better Rating.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.
The V226HQL is fairly light (only 3.2 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that were launched around the same time as the V226HQL. Across all the medium monitors that were released one year ago the weights range from 2.3g to 79kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.
The average width of PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the V226HQL is 590mm, and the widths range from 51mm to 960mm. With a width of only 508 millimeters, the V226HQL is quite narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the V226HQL.
Alternative PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the LG 22MT44 (£125.00) (507.6mm), or the Acer B226HQL (£113.55) (508mm).
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
The V226HQL has one of the lower annual energy consumptions (only 32 kilowatt hours) amongst medium monitors of this age. The average annual energy consumption of LCD screens of a similar age and type to the V226HQL is 210kWh, and the annual energy consumptions range from 22kWh to 29,000kWh.
Across all the PC monitors of this age and spec the heights range from 36mm to 930mm. At only 304.5 millimeters, the V226HQL is fairly short compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the V226HQL.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other LCD screens of this age and type have a built-in speaker, however the Acer V226HQL does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Viewsonic VA2452SM (£103.98) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec, the V226HQL does not have a built-in camera.
Alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the Viewsonic VG2437 (£163.98), or the DELL UZ2215H (£201.55) which also has a higher Rating.
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer V226HQL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the V226HQL are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the iiyama B2783QSU-B1 (£249.97), or the Acer XB240H (£149.99).
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the V226HQL, the V226HQL does not have an integrated card reader.
We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the SW2700PT (£523.19), or the BL3201 (£650.71) both from Benq or the DELL UP3214Q (£598.80) which also has a higher rating.
