7 Reasons For

Only Released Eight Months Ago

Being released just eight months ago, this PC screen is likely to use better technology.

Acer Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer PC monitors and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that are a similar age to it.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including cheaper PC monitors such as the Samsung S24D330H.

Has a Built-In Speaker

There are a number of other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the Asus VZ229H ($99.99), or the iiyama E2480HS-B2 which is cheaper; or the Viewsonic VA2452SM ($139.99) which has better reviews.

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

LCD screens that are a comparable age to the B226WL have maximum height adjustments of between 4.3mm and 510mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm. At 150 millimeters, the Acer B226WL has a fairly high maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other recently released PC screens.

Chart Edit


With a weight of only 3.1 kilograms, the Acer B226WL is quite light compared to most of the other PC screens that were released in the last year. The weights of newly released PC monitors range from 2.6g to 21kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg.

Chart Edit


The Acer B226WL is quite narrow (only 505.8 millimeters) compared to most of the other PC screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the B226WL. The narrowest comparable spec LCD screen that was released around the same time as the B226WL is 370mm wide, the widest is 900mm, and the average width is 590mm.

Flatpanel monitors with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Samsung S22F350FHU (508.6mm and cheaper), the DELL P2217 ($119.95) (503.4mm and cheaper), or the Wortmann AG 2225W (504mm and cheaper).

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most new PC monitors are not 3D compatible. The Acer B226WL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer B226WL does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the B226WL also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Lenovo T2224 ($255.16) which is also cheaper.
