9 Reasons For

Good Size

A number of Acer B226 reviewers who reviewed this PC monitor considered that it was a good height. Patrick Ovenden said on Amazon “Decent non-glare screen with height and tilt adjustments” in his review and scored it 80 out of 100. Patrick Ovenden also said “The stand is stable and has a height adjustment and vertical tilt”.

Easy to Use

One person who purchased it concluded that it was easy to assemble. Patrick Ovenden wrote in his review of the Acer B226 on Amazon last year “To get five stars from me it would just need to be slightly easier to assemble and have the ability to swivel from side to side”.

Acer Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

Based on 3,487 expert and owner reviews, Acer has good reviews for its flatpanel monitors. Acer also has good reviews specifically within its medium monitors range compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other PC screens of a similar age and type to the B226 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Acer B226 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think a cheaper LCD screen such as the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price] or you might consider a higher rated LCD screen such as the iiyama E2480HS[plb_1437284_price] are also worth considering.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the Fujitsu B22W-7[plb_1602263_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

The maximum height adjustments of PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the B226 range from 13mm to 850mm. The Acer B226 has one of the higher maximum height adjustments (150 millimeters) amongst PC displays of this age.

Chart Edit

Has Four Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the Acer B226 is more than most comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to it. This PC screen has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on similar spec PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the B226. The cables included "DisplayPort", "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this flatpanel monitor.

Chart Edit

Light

Medium monitors that are a similar age to the B226 have weights of between 3g and 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. At only 3.1 kilograms, the Acer B226 is fairly light compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the B226.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 505.7 millimeters, the Acer B226 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other LCD screens of this type and age. Medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the B226 have widths of between 52mm and 6,500mm.

We compared all the other 505.7mm wide flatpanel monitors to this PC screen and we think the Acer 226WLwmdr[plb_1498662_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the 221B3LPC[pl_1390791_price] (507mm), or the 221S3[pl_1529756_price] (507mm) both from Philips which is also cheaper.

Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption

With an annual energy consumption of only 27 kilowatt hours, the Acer B226 has a quite low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the B226. Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the annual energy consumptions range from 0.02kWh to 29,000kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 250kWh.

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most PC displays that have been available for around the same time as the B226 are not 3D compatible. The Acer B226 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Acer XB240H[plb_2719156_price], the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], or the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the B226 do not have a built-in camera. The Acer B226 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to consider including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer B226 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC displays of this spec and age also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution

The Acer B226 has a maximum display resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Across all medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B226 the display resolution ranges from 1366 x 768 pixels to 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Chart Edit

Quite Low RMS Rated Audio Power

Across all the LCD screens of this age and type the RMS rated audio powers range from 0.5W to 49W. When compared to other flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the B226 that we have assessed, the RMS rated audio power of the Acer B226 of only 1 Watt is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

The Acer B226 has one of the narrower vertical viewing angles (only 160 degrees) amongst medium monitors of this age. The vertical viewing angles of medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the B226 range from 50° to 180°.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer B226HQL

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Acer PC monitor was released over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The Acer B226 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most PC displays of this age and spec.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the 276HL[pl_2032289_price], or the V236HL[pl_1604471_price] both from Acer.

If the display type of this LCD screen is too bad for you then you might want to consider the LG 22MP65[plb_2196010_price] (LED and cheaper); or the VS239[pl_1386925_price] (LED and higher rated), or the PB238[pl_2368528_price] (LED and higher rated) both from Asus.
