9 Reasons For

Acer Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

On average Acer medium monitors have good ratings as do all PC screens built by Acer.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on similar spec PC screens that have been around for the last year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including the Viewsonic VA2452SM[plb_3066057_price] which has better reviews; or the HP V213a[plb_3691039_price], or the LG 22MP48D[plb_3768755_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer R221Q has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the R221Q also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Hannspree HP225PJB[plb_3338307_price] which is cheaper; or the Asus VS229HA[plb_3766883_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to look at including the Samsung S24C650PL[plb_3814142_price].
