8 Reasons For
Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors
Based on 3,506 user and expert reviews, Acer has good reviews for its PC monitors. Acer also has good reviews specifically within its small monitors range compared to other manufacturers.
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many small monitors that have been around for more than a year.
We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think the V7 L18500WS-9K which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The V206WQL has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and type to the V206WQL which do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Hannspree HE196APB is also worth considering.
Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
PC displays that have been available for a similar time to the V206WQL have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 140°. With a vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees, the Acer V206WQL's vertical viewing angle is one of the widest amongst PC monitors of this type and age.
1440 X 900 Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution of the Acer V206WQL is 1440 x 900. That's 1% more resolution than a 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) LCD screen, which is the most frequently found resolution. The resolution of all PC displays that were released around the same time as the V206WQL ranges from 720 x 400 (worst) to 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (best).
Fairly Bright Display Brightness
At 250 candellas per square meter, the Acer V206WQL has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other small monitors that are a similar age to the V206WQL. Comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the V206WQL have display brightness of between 200 cd/m² and 350 cd/m².
+3 More reasons for
Has Three Cables Included
The number of cables included found on the V206WQL is more than most PC displays that have been available for around the same time as it. This PC screen has a VGA cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the V206WQL. The cables included "AC" and "DVI" are also found on this PC display.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
LCD screens of this type and age have screen sizes of between 35cm and 490cm, and the average display diagonal is 57cm. The Acer V206WQL has a quite big display diagonal (50 centimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been available for a similar time to the V206WQL.
4 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The V206WQL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of a similar type and age to the V206WQL are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the V206WQL, the V206WQL does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the Philips 200V4QSBR which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Acer V206WQL does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other LCD screens of this type and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
Very Low RMS Rated Audio Power
The average RMS rated audio power of PC displays that were released around the same time as the V206WQL is 2.3W, and the RMS rated audio powers range from 0.6W to 4W. With an RMS rated audio power of only 1 Watt, the V206WQL has a fairly low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the V206WQL.
