6 Reasons For

Only Released Four Months Ago

This PC display was released just four months ago, so it is likely to use better technology than some of the older PC monitors.

Good Brand

Acer is one of the superior LCD screen brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Acer also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B246HL has a built-in speaker. Most of the other latest medium monitors also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama B2483HSU-B1DP, and the Asus VP278H ($199.01) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the Viewsonic VX2757-MHD ($189.50).

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

At 150 millimeters, the Acer B246HL has a fairly high maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other latest medium monitors. Recently released PC monitors have maximum height adjustments of between 4.3mm and 510mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Mode

This flatpanel monitor has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many latest flatpanel monitors.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on latest medium monitors.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Only Two USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The Acer B246HL is a two USB Type-A downstream port PC display.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other new medium monitors, the Acer B246HL is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer B246HL does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec LCD screens that were released in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other recently released comparable spec PC displays, the Acer B246HL does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many new medium monitors.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Display Brightness

The dimmest display brightness of medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the B246HL is 200 cd/m² and the brightest is 800 cd/m². The Acer B246HL has one of the dimmer display brightness (only 250 candellas per square meter) amongst medium monitors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer B246HL

LCD Display Type

The Acer B246HL has a better display type than most PC monitors that came out in the last 12 months. This PC screen has an LCD display type, whereas most latest medium monitors have an LED display type.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the Asus VP278H ($199.01), or the Philips 243V5LSB ($115.99) which is cheaper.

If the display type of this PC screen is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Viewsonic VA2452SM ($99.99) (LED), or the iiyama B2483HSU-B1DP (LED) which is also cheaper.

Average Width

With a width of 567 millimeters, the Acer B246HL has a relatively average width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year.

PC displays with a wider width that might be worth looking at include the Philips 243V5LSB ($115.99) (551mm), the Viewsonic VX2457MHD ($147.68) (558.7mm), or the iiyama B2483HSU-B1DP (565.5mm) which is also cheaper.
