Chart Edit

Good Brand

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

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on comparable spec PC monitors that came out more than a year ago.

We compared all the other PC displays that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Acer B326HULA[plb_3029905_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the DELL U3415W[plb_2678877_price], and the Samsung LS29E790CNS[plb_3828481_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Acer BX320HK[plb_3158695_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the LG 34UM95C[plb_2988021_price].

We think you might also be interested in alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Samsung TC242W[plb_3234669_price].
