6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer is one of the better rated PC monitor brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Acer also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display

This PC monitor has an LED display, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC monitor such as the Asus VG27AH[plb_1426322_price] or you might consider a better rated PC monitor such as the AOC u3477[plb_2367536_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer CB290C has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the CB290C do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Eizo FlexScan EV2436[plb_2719035_price] is also worth considering.

Alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to look at include the Philips 272S4[plb_2563161_price], or the Wortmann AG Terra LED 2455W PIVOT[plb_2872967_price].
