6 Reasons For

Good Owner Reviews

On average, based on 8 owner reviews the average owner rating of this flatpanel monitor is 85 out of 100.

Good Brand

Medium monitors built by Acer have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Response Time

Similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to the V236HL have response times of between 1ms and 40ms. At only 5 milliseconds, the Acer V236HL has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the V236HL.

Chart Edit

Has Three Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the Acer V236HL is more than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. This Acer PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the V236HL. The cables included "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

Short

Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 30mm to 4,800mm. At only 50.8 millimeters, the Acer V236HL is very short compared to most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the V236HL.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Acer V236HL does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC screens of this age and type also do not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq EW2440[plb_2076167_price], or the iiyama E2278H[plb_1390594_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The Acer V236HL is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the V236HL are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer V236HL does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and type also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the VK228H[pl_1386924_price], or the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price] both from Asus is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that came out more than two years ago do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer V236HL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

With a vertical viewing angle of only 160 degrees, the Acer V236HL has one of the narrower vertical viewing angles amongst medium monitors of this age. The vertical viewing angles of LCD screens that were launched around the same time as the V236HL range from 50° to 180°.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle

At only 170 degrees, the Acer V236HL has a fairly narrow horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the V236HL. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V236HL is 60° and the widest is 180°.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer V236HL

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The Acer V236HL has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that came out more than two years ago. Most flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including the AOC M2470[plb_2666838_price] which is cheaper.

PC monitors with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the LG 24M45[plb_2194306_price] (LED and higher rated); or the Samsung S24D391[plb_2243808_price] (LED and cheaper).

Had this monitor maybe 2 weeks from the time of this review noticed a stuck pixel
Using a YouTube video I find how to get the pixel unstuck using a Micro fabric cloth and lightly rubbing the stuck pixel and it went away not sure if its gonna come back or not

Clean looking monitor with a slim profile for a great price. The stand is a little flimsy, but as long as it's sitting on a solid desk and left alone it will do the job...
