They also wrote “No other monitor really met my needs for this price without having some quality issues” in their review. And also said “Competitive gaming in first person shooters - the quality of the picture is amazing.”.


Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer B246 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC screens of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of their better review scores, the AOC I2460 (£201.35), or the iiyama XB2483HSU (£200.39).

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus MX259 (£215.99) is also worth considering.
