7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Acer S241HL does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC displays of this age and spec also do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Viewsonic VX2252[plb_1618336_price] which also has a higher rating.
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer S241HL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the S241HL are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price].
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and type to the S241HL, the Acer S241HL does not have a built-in camera.
Alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] which is also cheaper.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the S241HL do not have an integrated card reader. The Acer S241HL is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

With a width of 563.9 millimeters, the Acer S241HL has a fairly average width compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the S241HL.
If you would consider a PC screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] (518mm), or the Benq GL2450[plb_1550159_price] (579.39mm) which is also cheaper.
