The B226HQL has an average running cost of only £34 over 5 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 14% of all 993 LCD screens of a comparable age and spec.

Acer LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The B226HQL has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider including a cheaper LCD screen such as the Samsung LS27D590[plb_2366895_price] or you might consider a higher rated LCD screen such as the 221P6[pl_2497489_price], or the 275C5QHAW[pl_3174546_price] both from Philips.
