6 Reasons Against

The Acer 242HQLB does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 242HQLB.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 242HQLB do not have a built-in camera. The 242HQLB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the Lenovo X1 (£40.24) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

The 242HQLB is not 3D. Most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months are also not 3D.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Predator XB271HU (£389.99) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most recently released flatpanel monitors do not have a card reader integrated. The 242HQLB is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors with a card reader integrated and we think the DELL 2408WFP which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
