We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in camera and we think the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer B326 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the B326 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL UP3214Q; or the BL3201 ($632.99), or the PG2401 ($749.99) both from Benq.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Quite Short Mean Time Between Failures

The Acer B326 has a quite short mean time between failures (only 30,000 hours) compared to most of the other LCD screens that have been available for around the same time as the B326.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer B326

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Acer released the B326.

LCD Display Type

The Acer B326 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display to this PC display and we think cheaper PC monitors such as the Eizo FlexScan S2133 ($967.99) is also worth considering.

If the display type of this medium monitor is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the LG 27EA83 (LED), the Asus PQ321 (LED), or the DELL U3014 ($1,499.99) (LED) which also has a higher rating.
