6 Reasons For
Just Released Seven Months Ago
This PC screen was only released seven months ago, so it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older flatpanel monitors.
Acer PC Displays Have Good Reviews
Acer has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC screen range.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found dynamic contrast ratio on recently released similar spec PC displays.
We compared all the other PC displays that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this LCD screen and we think the RT270bmid, and the K272HLEBID both from Acer or the Asus BE229QLB-G which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Acer B246WL has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC E245WMi ($300.99) which is cheaper; or the iiyama GB2888UHSU which has a better Rating.
We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the AOC I2775PQU.
Quite High Maximum Height Adjustment
The maximum height adjustments of comparable spec PC displays that were released in the last year range from 20mm to 1,200mm. At 150 millimeters, the Acer B246WL has a fairly high maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the B246WL.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The Acer B246WL has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 11% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). The worst resolution of all medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B246WL is 720 x 400 and the best is 3840 x 2160.

4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year, the Acer B246WL does not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months, the Acer B246WL is not 3D compatible.
PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Acer GN276HL ($249.99).
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Acer B246WL does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other LCD screens that were released around the same time as the B246WL also do not have an integrated card reader.
Only HD HD Type
This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer B246WL
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many new LCD screens.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including a cheaper PC monitor such as the Samsung LC27F396FHU or you might consider a higher rated PC monitor such as the iiyama GB2488HSU ($576.66).
1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution
The most display resolution of the Acer B246WL is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Other PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper LCD screens such as the iiyama X2485WS-B3, the NEC E245WMi ($300.99), or the Philips 240S4QYMB.
With a width of 534 millimeters, the Acer B246WL has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for the last year.
Alternative PC screens with a wider width that you might want to look at include the LG 24MP88HM (541mm), or the DELL U2417H ($225.95) (537.6mm) which is also cheaper.
Search on 16:9 vs 16:10 and you will find numerous long threads with half preferring one and half the other. It really is just personal preference based on what the monitors primary use is.

Small black border around the screen- I do not mind, but its not obvious before you get it, they may have done this to help prevent light bleed
