4 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The V246WL ydp is in the cheapest 15% of all 486 flatpanel monitors of this type and age that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the V246WL ydp is only £34.

Good Brand

Acer is one of the better rated PC screen brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Acer also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display

This PC monitor has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on PC screens of a comparable type and age to it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including the Viewsonic VA2037[plb_1471364_price], the Samsung S27E500C[plb_3063888_price], or the Fujitsu L21T-1[plb_3075614_price] which has better reviews.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The V246WL ydp does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the V246WL ydp which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC screen and we think the Viewsonic VA2037[plb_1471364_price], the LG 31MU97Z-B[plb_3105390_price], or the Acer B246HYL[plb_3054428_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D

Like most of the other PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the V246WL ydp, the V246WL ydp is not 3D.
