9 Reasons For

Good Size

A number of Acer 226WL owners said in their reviews that it was a good height. Patrick Ovenden said in his Acer 226WL review on Amazon “Decent non-glare screen with height and tilt adjustments” and rated the product 80 out of 100. Patrick Ovenden also mentioned “The stand is stable and has a height adjustment and vertical tilt”.

Robust

One Acer 226WL reviewer wrote in their reviews that the Acer 226WL was well made. George Puttock mentioned last year “Built well, great stand” in his review of the Acer 226WL.

Easy to Use

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was easy to assemble. Patrick Ovenden wrote “To get five stars from me it would just need to be slightly easier to assemble and have the ability to swivel from side to side” in his Acer 226WL review.

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display

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

We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC monitor such as the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price] or you might consider a better rated PC monitor such as the Acer G227HQL[plb_2210646_price], and the Asus PB238[plb_2368528_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer 226WLwmdr has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and type to the 226WLwmdr do not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the iiyama E2480HS[plb_1437284_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think the iiyama E2481HS[plb_1517747_price], or the Philips 220B4[plb_1399348_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly High Height Adjustment

The height adjustments of comparable spec PC screens that have been available for more than two years range from 13mm to 1,200mm, and the average height adjustment is 130mm. The 226WLwmdr has one of the higher height adjustments (150 millimeters) amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Has Two Cables Includeds

The number of cables included found on the Acer 226WLwmdr is more than most PC monitors of a similar age and spec to it. This PC display has an AC cables included, which is the most frequently found cables included found on PC screens of this type and age. The cables included "VGA" is also found on this PC screen.

Light

Across all the LCD screens of this spec and age the weights range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Recent Price Increase of £36.39

The price of the 226WLwmdr has increased by £36.39 in the last 37 days.

Not 3D

The Acer 226WLwmdr is not 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays of a similar age and spec to the 226WLwmdr are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a PC screen that is 3D then you might also want to look at the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the 226WLwmdr, the 226WLwmdr does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price], or the VK228H[pl_1386924_price] both from Asus which is also cheaper.
