Acer B246HYL Review

9 Reasons For

Acer PC Screens Have Good Reviews

Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors Acer is one of the better rated manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC displays of this type and age.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC e2250Swdnk is also worth considering.
