9 Reasons For

Acer Has Good PC Monitor Reviews

Based on 3,506 owner and expert reviews, Acer has good ratings for its flatpanel monitors. Acer also has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of a comparable type and age to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the iiyama XB2780HSU ($320.68), the Acer XB280HK ($556.99), or the Neovo QF-28.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other similar spec PC screens that came out more than two years ago which do not have a built-in speaker, the Acer B286 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Acer CB290C which is cheaper; or the Fujitsu P24W-7, and the Asus VG278 ($422.07) which has better reviews are also worth considering.
