8 Reasons For

Acer PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Acer PC displays and also specifically for Acer small monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B196 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the B196 which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the Asus VB199[plb_2444664_price], and the Benq BL902[plb_2048599_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Edge10 C185k[plb_1972331_price].
