9 Reasons For

Acer PC Screens Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors manufactured by Acer have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all PC screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC monitors of this spec and age.

It may also be worth considering one of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the HP Z Display Z24 ($340.00) which is cheaper; or the Samsung S27C750, or the AOC U2477PWQ which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Predator XB271HK has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC displays of this age and spec.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Acer XB270H ($456.99) which has better reviews.

We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer XF270H, or the LG 29UC97C ($465.00) is also worth considering.

- Probably will end up RMA-ing the second monitor as well, and wait out for the Asus PGxxx 4K with identical specs. - Neweggs customer service best in the business!
