Chart

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer Predator XB271HU has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the Predator XB271HU also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price] which is cheaper; or the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the AOC AG271QX[plb_3537209_price].

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer Predator XB271HU

Released Ten Months Ago

It was ten months ago when this PC screen was released.

LCD Display Type

The Predator XB271HU has a better display type than most PC monitors that have been around for the last year. This flatpanel monitor has an LCD display type, whereas most recently released comparable spec PC monitors have an LED display type.

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 Benq XL2720Z[plb_3406736_price], or the AOC Q2781PQ[plb_3623698_price].

PC monitors with a better display type that might be worth considering include the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price] (LED and cheaper) or the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] (LED and higher rated).

Average Width

At 614 millimeters, the Predator XB271HU has a relatively average width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that came out around the same time as the Predator XB271HU.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 614mm wide flatpanel monitors currently available including the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] which has better reviews.

Other PC monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the iiyama XUB3490WQSU-B1[plb_3203453_price] (827.5mm), or the LG 27UD68-W[plb_3304971_price] (615mm).
