8 Reasons For
Good User Reviews

Acer PC Monitors Have Good Reviews
Medium monitors built by Acer have good ratings 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 ratings across its entire range.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Acer V236HL is 100000000:1. That's over five times the contrast ratio of the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 20000000:1.
This LCD screen's contrast ratio (100000000:1) is actually the best contrast ratio across all medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the V236HL.
The worst contrast ratio amongst comparable types of LCD screen is Mega Contrast.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VN279 ($172.99) is also worth considering.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the LG IPS231P ($456.87), or the HKC 2412A which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the HP LP2065 or the Lenovo E2323 ($179.06).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Acer V236HL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the V236HL also do not have a built-in camera.
It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the HP Compaq LA2206.

If you would prefer a PC monitor with a more display resolution then you might want to look at the Samsung S24C650 (1920 x 1200) which is also higher rated.
