5 Reasons For
Acer PC Monitors Have Good Reviews
We checked 3,506 user and expert reviews for Acer LCD screens and found that on average Acer has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Acer has good ratings specifically for its small monitors.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than a year.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the DELL P1914S ($215.99) which has better reviews.
Has Two Cables Included
The V206HQL has a greater number of cables included than most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This Acer LCD screen has a VGA cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on PC displays that came out around the same time as the V206HQL. The cable included "AC" is also found on this Acer PC screen.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
Small monitors that were launched around the same time as the V206HQL have screen sizes of between 35cm and 490cm. When compared to other small monitors that were released around the same time as the V206HQL, the display diagonal of the V206HQL of 50 centimeters is one of the biggest.
The Acer V206HQL is quite short (only 276.2 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the V206HQL. Small monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the V206HQL have heights of between 210mm and 500mm, and the average height is 310mm.
9 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The V206HQL does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other small monitors that were launched more than a year ago also do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the V7 L18500WS-9K.
Not 3D Compatible
The V206HQL is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other small monitors that came out more than a year ago are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The V206HQL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC displays that have been available for a comparable time to the V206HQL also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 200V4QSBR is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC monitors of a similar type and age to the V206HQL, the V206HQL does not have an integrated card reader.
