9 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC screen range compared to other brands.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think the 34UC79G ($1,021.90), and the 34UC79G-B ($599.00) both from LG or the Acer BX340CK which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer XR342CK has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that were released in the last 12 months also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Samsung C34F791WQU or you might consider a higher rated flatpanel monitor such as the DELL U3417W ($750.00), and the Acer XB321HK ($1,023.99) are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two DisplayPorts

The XR342CK has more DisplayPorts than most of the latest similar spec PC monitors. This flatpanel monitor is a two DisplayPort PC display compared to most of the medium monitors that are a similar age to the XR342CK which only have one DisplayPort.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 86 centimeters, the Acer XR342CK has one of the bigger screen sizes amongst medium monitors of this age. The smallest display diagonal of recently released medium monitors is 49cm and the biggest is 690cm.

Chart Edit

3440 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the XR342CK is 3440 x 1440. That's over two times the resolution of a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC monitor, which is the most common resolution. Across all medium monitors that came out around the same time as the XR342CK the best resolution is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The Acer XR342CK has a quite bright display brightness (300 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the XR342CK. The average display brightness of new PC screens is 280 cd/m², and the display brightness range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m².

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Chart Edit

Chart Edit
