4 Reasons For
Acer LCD Screens Have Good Reviews
We checked 3,506 user and expert reviews for Acer flatpanel monitors and found that on average Acer has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Acer has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this type and age.
There are a number of other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available that you might also want to look at including a cheaper PC display such as the HP EliteDisplay E242[plb_3059590_price] or you might consider a better rated PC display such as the Asus VN247[plb_1473074_price], or the Samsung S27E650D[plb_3018889_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Acer B246HQL has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC monitors of a similar type and age to the B246HQL.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Asus VS278H[plb_2969187_price], or the Benq GW2760H[plb_3402570_price] which has better reviews.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Medion MD20664[plb_3672234_price] is also worth considering.
Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment
The maximum height adjustments of PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the B246HQL range from 20mm to 180mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm. At 150 millimeters, the B246HQL has a fairly high maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B246HQL.
6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The B246HQL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than a year ago also do not have a built-in camera.
Other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Asus VK248H[plb_2969185_price], or the Viewsonic VG2437[plb_2780335_price] which also has a higher rating.
Not 3D Compatible
Most LCD screens of this age and spec are not 3D compatible. The B246HQL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
PC displays which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price].
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The B246HQL does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on PC screens of a comparable age and spec to it.
+3 More reasons against
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to it.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
At only 250 candellas per square meter, the B246HQL has a fairly dim display brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to the B246HQL. The dimmest display brightness of PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B246HQL is 25 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,700 cd/m².
2 Other reasons to consider the Acer B246HQL

The Acer B246HQL has a pretty average width (567 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the B246HQL.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to consider the Acer UM.UV6AA.C02[plb_2927772_price] (566.4mm and cheaper).
