8 Reasons For

Only Released Four Months Ago

Acer only released the XB241YU four months ago. Newer flatpanel monitors like this one are likely to have better features.

Acer Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

On average Acer medium monitors have good reviews compared to other brands as do all PC displays produced by Acer.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on LCD screens that were released around the same time as it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the Samsung U28E850R ($549.99), and the Asus VA32AQ ($397.30) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XB241YU has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the XB241YU also have a built-in speaker.

Other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at include a cheaper PC display such as the Philips BDM3270QP2 or you might consider a better rated PC display such as the Acer XG270HU ($397.99).

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to look at including the AOC AG241QG.

Across all the medium monitors that were released around the same time as the XB241YU the maximum height adjustments range from 4.3mm to 510mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The average display brightness of comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for the last year is 280 cd/m². The XB241YU has one of the brighter display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) amongst similar spec flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Has Four Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the Acer XB241YU is more than most PC screens that were launched in the last year. This LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that were launched in the last year. The cables included "DisplayPort", "HDMI" and "USB" are also found on this Acer PC display.

Very Fast Response Time

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The XB241YU does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider including the Philips 272B7QPTKEB.

Not 3D Compatible

Most new medium monitors are not 3D compatible. The XB241YU is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer Predator XB271HU ($636.99) or the ZOWIE XL2720 ($379.00), or the Zowie XL2430 both from Benq.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

1 Other reason to consider the Acer XB241YU

Average Width

The Acer XB241YU has a relatively average width (541 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the XB241YU.

Other flatpanel monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Acer XB241H ($399.98) (566.4mm), or the Asus MG24UQ ($339.99) (556mm) which is also cheaper.
