Chart Edit

Like most of the other similar spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as the Predator XB271HU, the Acer Predator XB271HU has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the BE270U ($487.15), or the XG270HU ($372.99) both from Acer which has better reviews.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the AOC AG271QX ($449.99) is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer Predator XB271HU

Released Nine Months Ago

It was nine months ago when Acer released the Predator XB271HU.

LCD Display Type

The Acer Predator XB271HU has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most new medium monitors.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display to this PC display and we think the Acer XG270HU ($372.99), the Benq XL2720Z ($274.99), and the AOC Q2781PQ which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the display type of this PC display is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer CB281HK ($372.76) (LED and cheaper), or the LG 34UM68-P ($349.00) (LED and cheaper).

Average Width

At 614 millimeters, the Acer Predator XB271HU has a pretty standard width compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last year.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other 614mm wide PC monitors and we think the Acer XG270HU ($372.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative PC monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1 (827.5mm), or the LG 27UD68-W ($400.00) (615mm).
