Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors
Acer medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all LCD screens Acer is one of the better rated manufacturers.
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on LCD screens of this type and age.
We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq GL2250HM is also worth considering.
Very Low Power Consumption When Off
Across all the LCD screens of this spec and age the power consumptions when off range from 0.005W to 350W. The Acer V226HQL has a quite low power consumption when off (only 0.25 Watts) compared to most of the other LCD screens that were released one year ago.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC displays that have been on the market for more than a year.
The weights of PC monitors of this age and spec range from 2.3g to 79kg. At only 3.2 kilograms, the V226HQL is quite light compared to most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the V226HQL.
The narrowest LCD screen that was launched around the same time as the V226HQL is 340mm wide and the widest is 960mm. The V226HQL is one of the narrower PC screens that came out around the same time as the V226HQL (only 508 millimeters) amongst PC displays of this age.
Alternative PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Philips 227E6 (511mm), or the LG 22M37 (509mm).
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
The V226HQL has one of the lower annual energy consumptions (only 32 kilowatt hours) amongst medium monitors of this age. The average annual energy consumption of medium monitors that came out more than a year ago is 48kWh, and the annual energy consumptions range from 22kWh to 140kWh.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Acer V226HQL does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the V226HQL.
There are a number of other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to consider including the AOC e2470Swh ($80.00) which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most LCD screens of this age and type do not have a built-in camera. The Acer V226HQL is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
It is worth also looking at other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the Lenovo T2224.
Not 3D Compatible
The V226HQL is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the V226HQL are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the V226HQL, the V226HQL does not have an integrated card reader.
