6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium monitors produced by Acer have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that Acer also has good reviews across its entire range.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that came out around the same time as it.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display to this PC display and we think the 258B6QUEB, and the 276E7QDAB/00 both from Philips which has better reviews; or the Viewsonic XG2401 ($259.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer B246WL has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for the last year also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Viewsonic XG2401 ($259.99) which is cheaper; or the Acer K272HUL ($224.99), and the Asus PB287Q ($333.99) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

The maximum height adjustments of medium monitors that have been around for the last year range from 10mm to 510mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm. With a maximum height adjustment of 150 millimeters, the Acer B246WL has one of the higher maximum height adjustments amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the Acer B246WL is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 11% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). PC monitors that were released in the last 12 months graphics resolutions range from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest medium monitor that came out in the last year is 370mm wide, the widest is 900mm, and the average width is 590mm. At only 534 millimeters, the Acer B246WL is quite narrow compared to most of the other new PC displays.

If you are not worried about having a wider width then you might also want to consider the Acer XF240H ($249.30) (566mm and cheaper).

Reviewed 31 July 2015 by Christopher D.

Search on 16:9 vs 16:10 and you will find numerous long threads with half preferring one and half the other. It really is just personal preference based on what the monitors primary use is. Serous... Read more…

I looked at many monitor reviews and tech specs, but no other monitor really met my needs for this price without having some quality issues. Acer is solid, the work out of the box with no issues
What it is: 24 inch IPS panel, 16 10 aspect ration, 6ms response time
Flicker free ( PWN Free
Very small bezel - keep in mind there is a 18 inch black space all the way around between the useable space and the bezel
What is it good for: Casual gaming, any kind of work related use, video or image editing, and all around general use
None of these are enough to take an egg of for
No HDMI - converter to DVI is inexpensive
Small black border around the screen- I do not mind, but its not obvious before you get it, they may have done this to help prevent light bleed
