We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the DELL S2415H ($124.99); or the Hannspree HS246HFW.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer K242HLA

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this Acer PC monitor was released.

Average Width

With a width of 567 millimeters, the K242HLA has a relatively typical width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the K242HLA.

If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the Acer K242HQL ($97.99) (567mm).
