10 Reasons For

Only Released Six Months Ago

This PC display was only released six months ago, so it is likely to have better features than some of the older flatpanel monitors.

Acer Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer LCD screens and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the R221Q, the Acer R221Q has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC displays such as the LG 22MT48D[plb_3625337_price], or the Hannspree HP225PJB[plb_3338307_price].

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Lenovo T2224[plb_2805500_price] is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Narrow

At only 497.84 millimeters, the Acer R221Q is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the R221Q.

If you would consider a PC screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the DELL P2217[plb_3437610_price] (503.4mm and cheaper).

1 Other reason to consider the Acer R221Q

LCD Display Type

The Acer R221Q has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it. Most new medium monitors have an LED display type.

We compared all the other PC displays that have an LCD Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic VX2257-MHD[plb_3341735_price] is also worth considering.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Acer S230HL[plb_2701269_price] (LED,LCD), the Asus VP229[plb_3706923_price] (LED), or the iiyama E2282HV[plb_3537563_price] (LED).
