4 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other brands.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on LCD screens that came out more than a year ago.

Other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might also want to consider include the DELL S2216H which is cheaper; or the Asus VN247 ($189.00), or the Acer G246HYL ($98.99) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other PC displays of a similar age and spec to the 42HQL, the Acer 42HQL has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Viewsonic VA2465 ($128.88) which is cheaper; or the VC239H ($109.99), and the VE248HR both from Asus which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

The Acer 42HQL has a quite bright display brightness (300 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that were launched more than a year ago. Similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the 42HQL have display brightness of between 25 cd/m² and 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 42HQL, the Acer 42HQL does not have a built-in camera.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to look at include the HP EliteDisplay E240c ($229.35).

Not 3D Compatible

Most similar spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the 42HQL are not 3D compatible. The Acer 42HQL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 42HQL do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer 42HQL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL UP2715K ($1,618.33).
