4 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors

Acer has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire LCD screen range compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that came out around the same time as it.

It may also be worth considering one of the other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including the AOC e2250Swdnk, or the NEC MultiSync EA244 ($809.00) which has better reviews.

The cables included "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this PC screen.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Acer 242HL does not have a built-in speaker, although keep in mind that most of the other PC monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 242HL also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Acer 242HL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the 242HL are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer 242HL does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age also do not have a built-in camera.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that came out more than two years ago do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer 242HL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 ($440.95), or the U2713H ($689.99) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 which is also higher rated.

Average Width

With a width of 565 millimeters, the Acer 242HL has a pretty standard width compared to most of the other PC screens of this age and type.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other 565mm wide PC screens and we think the Benq BL2410, the Acer G246H ($124.99), and the Philips 241S4 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
