9 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer LCD screens and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer B286 has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at including the Asus CP220[plb_2440669_price] which is cheaper; or the LG 29UB65[plb_2148069_price] which has better reviews.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Acer CB290C[plb_2479014_price] is also worth considering.
