4 Reasons For
Acer is one of the superior flatpanel monitor manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Acer also has good ratings for its medium monitors.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the V246HQL is 100000000:1. That's over twenty times the contrast ratio of the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1.
This PC monitor's contrast ratio (100000000:1) is actually the best contrast ratio across all PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the V246HQL.
A Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio is the worst contrast ratio amongst similar types of PC monitor.
Fairly Bright Display Brightness
At 300 candellas per square meter, the V246HQL has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for more than a year. Across all the medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the V246HQL the display brightness range from 25 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m².
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 PC displays that came out more than a year ago.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The V246HQL does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the V246HQL.
There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the Asus VX279Q (£197.39).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The V246HQL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than a year also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Most LCD screens that have been available for more than a year are not 3D compatible. The V246HQL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The V246HQL does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the V246HQL also do not have an integrated card reader.
+3 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This flatpanel monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a similar age to it.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including cheaper PC monitors such as the Samsung S22E450D.
If you would prefer a PC display with a more display resolution then you might also want to consider the HP Z24i (£264.37) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated).
4 Other reasons to consider the Acer V246HQL
Average Running Costs
The average running cost of the V246HQL is £38 over 5 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 486 similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released more than a year ago.
Released Over a Year Ago
This PC display was released over a year ago.
LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC displays that have been around for more than a year.
Alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to look at include the Samsung S22E450F (£124.97) which has a better Rating; or the Samsung S22E450D which is cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
At 566.4 millimeters, the V246HQL has a pretty standard width compared to most of the other PC screens of this type and age.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to look at the Acer K242HL (£89.99) (567mm) which is also cheaper.
