LED Display

This PC display has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on similar spec LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as it.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] which has better reviews; or the DELL U3417W[plb_3817031_price], and the LG 34UC79G-B[plb_3922898_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One Acer XB271HK owner concluded that it was not good value for money. Pcmag.com said on expert review site PC Mag in January last year “It may be pricey.” in their Acer XB271HK review.

Pricey

The cheapeast flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months that we found costs £64 and the most expensive costs £3,777. We think that this Acer PC display looks expensive for a new medium monitor.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer XB271HK does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC screens that came out in the last year also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the Lenovo X24 Pro[plb_3837369_price], or the Philips 272P7VPTKEB[plb_3785382_price].

Not 3D

Most flatpanel monitors that were released in the last 12 months are not 3D. The XB271HK is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most comparable spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the XB271HK do not have a card reader integrated. The XB271HK is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a card reader integrated to this PC monitor and we think the Benq PV270[plb_3434754_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC display has a 4K Ultra HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The average 5 year running cost of the XB271HK is £118 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run new medium monitors.

Chart

Only Has Four Cables Includeds

The number of cables included found on the XB271HK is more than most similar spec PC displays that were launched in the last year. This PC screen has an AC cables included, which is the most commonly found cables included found on PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the XB271HK. The cables includeds "DisplayPort", "HDMI" and "USB" are also found on this Acer PC screen.
