5 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The B206HL is one of the cheaper to run PC screens of a similar age and type that we have looked at for 8 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 8 year running cost of the B206HL is only £37.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

Acer is one of the superior flatpanel monitor manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Acer also has good reviews for its small monitors.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the Acer B206HL has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer FT200HQL[plb_2326637_price] is also worth considering.

3 Reasons Against

The Acer B206HL is not 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other LCD screens of this age and spec are also not 3D.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer B206HL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to the B206HL also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK207S[plb_1488454_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

It is worth also looking at alternative PC monitors which also have a card reader integrated including the Samsung LS20C300[plb_2185005_price].
