Based on 4,262 expert and user reviews (including 789 verified purchases), Acer has good reviews for its flatpanel monitors. Acer also has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors compared to other manufacturers. 93% of those that bought a Acer PC display would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer R221Q has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been available for the last year.

There are a number of other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider including the Acer B246HL (£100.48) which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the VA2259-smh (£95.39), or the VA2359-smh (£102.06) both from Viewsonic.
