11 Reasons For

Excellent Owner Reviews

On average, people who bought this Acer flatpanel monitor rated it as 90%.

Acer Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We checked 3,487 user and expert reviews for Acer PC monitors and found that on average Acer has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Acer has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B226HQL has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the B226HQL do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the Benq EW2440, or the iiyama E2278H which has better reviews.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Philips 273V5 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

LCD screens of this type and age have depths of between 12mm and 560mm. At only 52 millimeters, the Acer B226HQL is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the B226HQL.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 508mm wide LCD screens currently available including the LG 22MP55, or the Samsung S22A450 which is cheaper.

If you would consider a PC display with a wider width then you might want to look at the Samsung LS22C570 (507.6mm).
