9 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Acer small monitors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all LCD screens built by Acer.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on LCD screens of a similar age and spec to it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the HP W1972a, and the Asus VW199TL which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer 196L has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the 196L which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Philips 200S4 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the Acer 196W, or the Hanns.G HX194.
