7 Reasons For

Popular Choice

Across all PC screens, the XB271HU is one the top selling products currently available for sale according to sales data from Amazon.

Four Number of Upstream Portss

The Acer XB271HU has more number of upstream portss than most of the similar spec PC displays that were launched in the last year. Most of the medium monitors that are a comparable age to the XB271HU only have between one and three number of upstream portss, however this flatpanel monitor has four number of upstream portss.

Chart Edit

Acer Has Good PC Monitor Reviews

On average Acer medium monitors have good reviews as do all LCD screens built by Acer.

LED Display

This PC display has an LED display, which is typical of many new similar spec flatpanel monitors.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including cheaper flatpanel monitors such as the Lenovo Pro2820[plb_2529020_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XB271HU has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other recently released similar spec LCD screens.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) to this PC monitor and we think the DELL S2817Q[plb_3307743_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer BE270U[plb_3921675_price], and the AOC AG271QX[plb_3537209_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The display brightnesss of newly released flatpanel monitors range from 200 cd/m² to 1,000 cd/m².

Chart Edit

2560 X 1440 Supported Graphics Resolutions

8 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The energy efficiency classification of this medium monitor is B, and the XB271HU is in the most expensive 20% of all 407 recently released medium monitors that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the XB271HU is £66.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The XB271HU does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other new medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not 3D

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the XB271HU, the XB271HU is not 3D.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D then you might also want to look at the ZOWIE XL2720[pl_3761444_price], or the Zowie XL2430[pl_3761443_price] both from Benq which is also cheaper.

This flatpanel monitor has a Wide Quad HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on PC displays that have been available for the last year.
