Good Product Quality
One customer who reviewed the Acer 206HQ mentioned that it was good quality. D. Haq said in their review in August last year “Ok quality, nothing special, worth the money” yet only rated it 60 out of 100.
Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors
Based on 3,184 user and expert reviews, Acer has good ratings for its flatpanel monitors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its small monitors range compared to other manufacturers.
LED Display Type
This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC displays of this type and age.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Hanns.G HP195, and the Philips 203V5 ($104.16) is also worth considering.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Acer 206HQ is 100000000:1. That's over five times the contrast ratio of the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio of 20000000:1.
A 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is actually the best contrast ratio across all small monitors that were launched around the same time as the 206HQ.
The worst contrast ratio across comparable types of PC screen is Mega Contrast.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC monitors that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including because of it's better review score, the 192HQL, the K192HQ, or the 193HQLHb all from Acer.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Unlike most of the other small monitors that have been around for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker, the Acer 206HQ has a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think a cheaper PC display such as the Philips 200V4 or you might consider a higher rated PC display such as the E2050S ($69.88), and the E950 both from AOC are also worth considering.

Quite Big Display Diagonal
With a display diagonal of 49.5 centimeters, the Acer 206HQ has a fairly big display diagonal compared to most of the other PC screens that have been around for a comparable time to the 206HQ. The smallest display diagonal of small monitors that have been available for a similar time to the 206HQ is 8.9cm and the biggest is 52cm.
Similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 206HQ have heights of between 19mm and 3,100mm. The Acer 206HQ is one of the shorter PC screens that were released around the same time as the 206HQ (only 276.86 millimeters) amongst small monitors of this age.

I ordered this to go along with an Acer pc, however as it only has a VGA slot, I was unable to connected it the computer as it did not have VGA connection. I have no other complaints, but at the... Read more…
