7 Reasons For

User Reviews Are Good

Robust

Acer LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the V246 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Acer V246 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Asus VX279[plb_1584661_price] or you might consider a higher rated flatpanel monitor such as the Philips 241P4[plb_1485096_price].

Alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the LG 25UB55[plb_2505526_price].

Chart Edit

Has Four Cables Included

The Acer V246 has a greater number of cables included than most LCD screens of this spec and age. This Acer LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the V246. The cables included "DisplayPort", "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this PC display.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the V246, the Acer V246 is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price], or the Benq XL2411[plb_2130532_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other comparable spec PC displays that were released around the same time as the V246, the Acer V246 does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to look at including the 231P4Q[pl_1394858_price], or the 272C4QPJKAB[pl_1532812_price] both from Philips or the AOC I2472[plb_2126699_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer V246 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC monitors that have been available for a similar time to the V246 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this flatpanel monitor and we think the DELL U2713H[plb_1518815_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
