7 Reasons For
Acer has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC screen range compared to other manufacturers.
1080p Video Mode
This LCD screen has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many PC displays of a similar age and type to it.
Quite Fast Response Time
The Acer V226 has one of the faster response times (only 5 milliseconds) amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the flatpanel monitors of this age and type the response times range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms.
Has Two Cables Included
The Acer V226 has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years. This PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the V226. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this LCD screen.
At only 52 millimeters, the Acer V226 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years. The average depth of PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the V226 is 110mm, and the depths range from 6.1mm to 810mm.
Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. The Acer V226 is fairly light (only 3.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age.
+2 More reasons for
The Acer V226 is one of the narrower flatpanel monitors of a similar spec and age to the V226 (only 505.8 millimeters) amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the widths range from 50mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.
If you would consider a PC monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the Samsung S22C450[plb_1534747_price] (504.3mm), or the iiyama E2273HDS[plb_1498490_price] (506.5mm).
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Acer V226 does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the V226 also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Viewsonic VA2445[plb_1604989_price]; or the AOC I2473[plb_2254441_price], or the Acer S241HL[plb_1554522_price] are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that are a comparable age to the V226 are not 3D compatible. The Acer V226 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the V226, the Acer V226 does not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to look at including the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] which is also cheaper.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Acer V226 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as the V226 also do not have an integrated card reader.
+4 More reasons against
Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution
The Acer V226 has a maximum display resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels flatpanel monitor, which is the most frequently found display resolution. The best display resolution of all similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the V226 is 2560 x 1600 pixels and the worst is 1366 x 768 pixels.
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has an HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on similar spec PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
With a horizontal viewing angle of only 170 degrees, the Acer V226 has a quite narrow horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago. The average horizontal viewing angle of PC screens of a similar age and spec to the V226 is 170°, and the horizontal viewing angles range from 60° to 180°.
2 Other reasons to consider the Acer V226

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer G246H[plb_1403578_price], or the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] which is cheaper.
