5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer has good average ratings for its small monitors as well as across its entire PC monitor range compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC monitor such as the Hannspree HE195ANB[plb_2936128_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC monitor such as the HP W1972a[plb_1398440_price] are also worth considering.

Shallow

PC monitors that are a comparable age to the V196HQL have depths of between 2.7mm and 460mm, and the average depth is 96mm. With a depth of only 50 millimeters, the Acer V196HQL is fairly shallow compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V196HQL the weights range from 2.9g to 19kg. With a weight of only 2.3 kilograms, the Acer V196HQL is one of the lighter small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the V196HQL amongst PC screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Short

At only 267 millimeters, the V196HQL is quite short compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the V196HQL. The heights of small monitors that are a comparable age to the V196HQL range from 5mm to 560mm.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The V196HQL does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the V196HQL also do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the AOC E950[plb_1947791_price], the Hanns.G HP195[plb_2063203_price], or the DELL P1913[plb_1454275_price].

Not 3D Compatible

The V196HQL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other small monitors that were released around the same time as the V196HQL are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer V196HQL does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the V196HQL also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the V196HQL, the V196HQL does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the Acer V196HQL is 1366 x 768 pixels. That's 20% less display resolution than a 1280 x 1024 pixels PC display, which is the most frequently found display resolution. Across all flatpanel monitors of this age and spec the worst display resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels and the best is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

At only 65 degrees, the Acer V196HQL has a quite narrow vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other PC screens of this spec and age. The average vertical viewing angle of comparable spec PC monitors that were released more than two years ago is 140°.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle

The V196HQL has a fairly narrow horizontal viewing angle (only 90 degrees) compared to most of the other small monitors that came out around the same time as the V196HQL. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of comparable spec PC screens that were launched around the same time as the V196HQL is 40°, the widest is 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 150°.

Chart Edit

Very Dim Display Brightness

PC displays that were launched around the same time as the V196HQL have display brightness of between 180 cd/m² and 450 cd/m². The Acer V196HQL has one of the dimmer display brightness (only 200 candellas per square meter) amongst small monitors of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer V196HQL

Released Over Two Years Ago

This small monitor was released over two years ago.

Average Width

At 441 millimeters, the V196HQL has a relatively average width compared to most of the other PC screens of this age and type.

Other 441mm wide PC screens currently available which you might want to look at include the Acer 192HQL[plb_2215544_price] which is cheaper.

If you are not bothered about having a wider width then you might want to consider the Lenovo LT1952p[plb_1531409_price] (440.9mm).

(Verified Purchase)

All 10 monitors worked as expected right out of the box. If 3 and 3/4 stars was a option I probably would have selected that instead of 4 stars. I just felt it was worth mentioning that...

Good deal (price wise
Nice build quality
The stands tilt up or down
The stands are quick and easy to setup
I purchased 10 of these monitors for the company I work for
The viewing angle is what I would consider poor. .. If you're looking from the side or from a higher position looking downwards it appears extremely washed out
