Chart Edit

Acer LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors Acer is one of the superior manufacturers.


LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many new similar spec flatpanel monitors.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including the DELL U2412M[plb_1448037_price], or the Eizo FORIS FS2735[plb_3186951_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer XB271HU has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the XB271HU.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus MX27[plb_3346408_price], and the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] is also worth considering.

Alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider include the Acer K272HUL[plb_3837383_price].

The average display brightness of latest medium monitors is 280 cd/m², and the display brightness range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m². The XB271HU has a fairly bright display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other latest PC screens.

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The XB271HU is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the XB271HU are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most recently released medium monitors do not have a built-in camera. The XB271HU is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer XB271HU does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the XB271HU also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the 2407WFP[pl_3247392_price], or the 2408WFP[pl_3249739_price] both from DELL which is also higher rated.
