1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most PC displays of this age and spec do not have a built-in speaker. The Acer 276HL is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Neovo SC-22 ($182.99); or the Asus PB238 ($209.73) are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC monitors of this spec and age are not 3D compatible. The Acer 276HL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the XL2411 ($245.99), or the XL2420 both from Benq; or the Acer XB240H ($785.54).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years, the Acer 276HL does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 272C4QPJKAB/00 or the Asus VK228H ($99.95) are also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 276HL do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer 276HL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
+4 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to it.
Only One HDMI Port
The Acer 276HL is a one HDMI port flatpanel monitor. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 276HL have between one and three HDMI ports.
Fairly Slow Response Time
At 6 milliseconds, the Acer 276HL has a quite slow response time compared to most of the other PC displays that have been available for more than two years. PC screens of this age and spec have response times of between 1ms and 40ms.
3 Other reasons to consider the Acer 276HL

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

LCD Display Type
The Acer 276HL has an LCD display type which is better than most similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to it have an LED display type.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including cheaper LCD screens such as the iiyama B2280WSD-B1.
Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might be worth considering include the Philips 221B3LPC (LED and cheaper); or the Samsung S27D390 ($350.95) (LED and higher rated).
