7 Reasons For
Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors
Acer has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range compared to other brands.
This PC screen has an LED display, which is typical of many similar spec PC monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.
We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think a cheaper PC display such as the Lenovo T2324p[plb_2910663_price] or you might consider a better rated PC display such as the HP 27es[plb_3710142_price] are also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other latest medium monitors, the Acer CB271H has a built-in speaker(s).
There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might also want to consider including the iiyama XUB2492HSU-B1[plb_3874093_price] which is cheaper; or the Philips 241B7QPJEB[plb_3830320_price], or the Acer XF240H[plb_3086845_price] which has better reviews.
Quite High Height Adjustment
Comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the CB271H have height adjustments of between 10mm and 510mm, and the average height adjustment is 130mm. At 150 millimeters, the Acer CB271H has a fairly high height adjustment compared to most of the other newly released medium monitors.
Quite Big Viewable Size, Horizontal
Across all the recently released comparable spec flatpanel monitors the viewable size, horizontals range from 290mm to 820mm, and the average viewable size, horizontal is 550mm. At 598 millimeters, the Acer CB271H has a quite big viewable size, horizontal compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the CB271H.
Quite Big Display Diagonal (metric)
Medium monitors that came out in the last year have display diagonal (metric)s of between 49cm and 820cm. With a display diagonal (metric) of 69 centimeters, the Acer CB271H has one of the bigger display diagonal (metric)s amongst medium monitors of this age.
