8 Reasons For

Good Size

A few Acer B226 reviewers who reviewed it concluded that it was a good height. Last year Patrick Ovenden mentioned in his review of the Acer B226 “Decent non-glare screen with height and tilt adjustments”. Patrick Ovenden also mentioned “The stand is stable and has a height adjustment and vertical tilt”.

Easy to Use

One person mentioned in their reviews that this PC monitor 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”.

Acer Has Good PC Display Reviews

Medium monitors manufactured by Acer have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B226 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC screens of this age and spec which do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq EW2440[plb_2076167_price], the iiyama E2278H[plb_1390594_price], or the AOC I2367FH[plb_1521997_price].

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

The Acer B226 has a fairly high maximum height adjustment (150 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the B226. Across all the medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B226 the maximum height adjustments range from 13mm to 850mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm.

Chart Edit

Has Four Cables Included

The Acer B226 has a greater number of cables included than most LCD screens of a comparable age and type to it. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the B226. The cables included "DisplayPort", "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this PC screen.

Chart Edit

Light

The Acer B226 is quite light (only 3.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other LCD screens that are a similar age to the B226. The weights of similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.

Chart Edit

Very Low Annual Energy Consumption

Across all the PC displays of a comparable type and age to the B226 the annual energy consumptions range from 0.02kWh to 29,000kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 260kWh. At only 27 kilowatt hours, the Acer B226 has a fairly low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to the B226.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the B226, the Acer B226 is not 3D compatible.

If you want an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], or the Acer XB240H[plb_2719156_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the B226 do not have a built-in camera. The Acer B226 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera which you might want to look at including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer B226 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the B226 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the Acer B226 is 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels LCD screen, which is the most common display resolution. The display resolution of all medium monitors that have been available for more than two years ranges from 1366 x 768 pixels (worst) to 2560 x 1600 pixels (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Audio Power

The RMS rated audio power of the Acer B226 of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest amongst comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the B226. Across all the comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago the RMS rated audio powers range from 0.5W to 49W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.3W.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This flatpanel monitor has an HD HD type, which is typical of many PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

The average vertical viewing angle of comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the B226 is 170°. With a vertical viewing angle of only 160 degrees, the Acer B226 has one of the narrower vertical viewing angles amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer B226

Released Over Three Years Ago

This flatpanel monitor has been on the market for over three years.

LCD Display Type

The Acer B226 has a better display type than most medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it. This Acer PC screen has an LCD display type, whereas most PC displays that were released more than two years ago have an LED display type.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays that have an LCD Display and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the AOC M2470[plb_2666838_price] or you might consider a better rated flatpanel monitor such as the HP L2245wg[plb_1528995_price] are also worth considering.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] (LED and higher rated), the Samsung S24D391[plb_2243808_price] (LED and higher rated), or the LG 24M45[plb_2194306_price] (LED and higher rated).

Average Width

At 534.2 millimeters, the Acer B226 has a relatively standard width compared to most of the other LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the B226.

We compared this PC screen to all the other 534.2mm wide PC monitors and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer 226WL[plb_1498662_price] is also worth considering.
