Good Size

A number of Acer 226WL owners said in their reviews that it was a good height. Patrick Ovenden said in his Acer 226WL review on Amazon “Decent non-glare screen with height and tilt adjustments” and rated the product 80 out of 100. Patrick Ovenden also mentioned “The stand is stable and has a height adjustment and vertical tilt”.

Robust

One Acer 226WL reviewer wrote in their reviews that the Acer 226WL was well made. George Puttock mentioned last year “Built well, great stand” in his review of the Acer 226WL.

Easy to Use

One customer mentioned in their reviews that it was easy to assemble. Patrick Ovenden wrote “To get five stars from me it would just need to be slightly easier to assemble and have the ability to swivel from side to side” in his Acer 226WL review.

There are a number of other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at including a cheaper PC screen such as the iiyama T2252[plb_1569399_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC screen such as the B2280HS[pl_2538377_price], or the B2283HS[pl_2323545_price] both from iiyama.

This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on similar spec PC screens that have been available for more than two years. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this Acer PC screen.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the 226WL do not have a built-in camera. The Acer 226WL is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] is also worth considering.
