1080p Video Mode
This PC display has a 1080p video mode, which is the most frequently found video mode on medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to it.
Quite Fast Response Time
With a response time of only 5 milliseconds, the Acer V226 has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other PC monitors that were released around the same time as the V226. The response times of medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the V226 range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms.
Has Two Cables Included
The Acer V226 has a greater number of cables included than most similar spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as it. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the V226. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this Acer PC screen.
With a height of only 333.1 millimeters, the Acer V226 is quite short compared to most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago. The average height of similar spec PC screens that have been available for a comparable time to the V226 is 380mm.
The average weight of PC displays of this type and age is 4.9kg. With a weight of only 3.1 kilograms, the Acer V226 is quite light compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and spec.
+2 More reasons for
With a width of only 505.8 millimeters, the Acer V226 is one of the narrower LCD screens of a comparable age and spec to the V226 amongst LCD screens of this age. The widths of PC screens of this type and age range from 52mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to look at the iiyama E2273HDS[plb_1498490_price] (506.5mm), or the Acer 226WLwmdr[plb_1498662_price] (505.7mm) which is also cheaper.
10 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Acer V226 does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors of this type and age also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Benq BL2405[plb_1731288_price] or the Benq RL2455[plb_2006981_price] are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Acer V226 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the V226 are also not 3D compatible.
LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price].
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Acer V226 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC displays that were released more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Like most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the V226, the Acer V226 does not have an integrated card reader.
