Acer G24

 

The 24-inch Acer G24 is an LCD computer monitor that costs about $399, with an expected street price of $359. If you're looking for a gaming-friendly monitor, you've come to the right place. Thanks to its high-gloss, TN+Film panel, the colors on the...

The Acer G24 has fast game performance and is capable of displaying vibrant, smooth colors

The Acer G24 lacks ergonomic support, has an unforgiving viewing angle and an unintuitive OSD, and lacks extras beyond HDMI support

The Acer G24 is great for gaming, but not much else.

Bold design, bold pictures - not a monitor you'll forget in a hurry

Good pixel response ; Deals well with motion ; Super sharp images ; Distinctive styling

Design won't be to everyone's tastes

Acer G24 review

 

The Acer G24 is great for gaming, but not much else. Severe backlight bleeding means that, while movies look vibrant and lack ghosting, their colour isn't accurate enough for serious viewing

Fast game performance ; Capable of displaying vibrant, smooth colours

Lacks ergonomic support ; Unforgiving viewing angle ; Frustrating on-screen display ; Lacks extras beyond HDMI support

We tested the power consumption of the G24 and found that it draws more standby power than most monitors do. The G24's standby average draw is 4.77W, compared with the 2408WFP's 1.56W, making it more expensive to run over time

The G24 is designed to match Acer's outlandish Predator gaming PC, and has the same metallic orange finish. The angular design and two-tone livery are attractive in their own right, though, and would complement many custom-built PCs.

The metallic orangey copper-coloured finish of the Acer G24 tells you immediately that this monitor is going to be a little different from Acer's usual fare.

The Acer G24 is a little pricey and has a design you'll either love or hate, but it certainly delivers superior performance and will be a good choice for serious gamers.

Acer G24 LCD Monitor

 

While its gaming performance is stellar, due to its ultra-glossy and reflective screen its viewing angle is unforgiving. It's also not the most ideal monitor for colour accuracy.

Fast game performance ; Is capable of displaying vibrant, smooth colours

Lacks ergonomic support ; Has an unforgiving viewing angle and an unintuitive OSD ; Lacks extras beyond HDMI support

If you're looking for a gaming-friendly monitor, you've come to the right place. Thanks to its high-gloss, TN+Film panel, the colours on the G24 look vibrant and smooth and high-speed games feel responsive and accurate. Competitors such as the AU$989...

Acer B243PWL 24” Professional Monitor Review

 

The current display market is an interesting place where there's currently a blurring of the lines between professional and enthusiasts products. Both

Good color gamut ; 16:10 ratio ; Reasonably efficient ; Physical buttons ; Well designed stand ; Good input option selection ; Passable built in speakers

Slow response time ; Over-simplified OSD ; Slow to turn on (aprx. 8+ seconds) ; Button layout & design is sub-optimal ; No bezel mounted USB ports

Acer has an enviable reputation among business so the B243PWL had some big shoes to fill and for the most part it lived up to expectations.

Expert review by:

Acer G24 review

 

Billed as the first monitor with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio, Acer's 24in G24 monitor is aimed at gamers who demand the most immersive visual experience available.

The Acer G24 is a little pricey and has a design you'll either love or hate, but it certainly delivers superior performance and will be a good choice for serious gamers.

I like it.

 

I'm comparing this monitor ( the Acer B243PWL ) with my previous one, the HP w2338h, a non⋅IPS (TN) non⋅LED ( CCFL, Fluorescent ) display, 1920 x 1080, 23". Brightness is set to Zero, Contrast to 100%, slight gamma adjustment. ASCR (dynamic contrast)...

Portrait mode. More Pixels. IPS is nice

Bad backlight bleed. BLACK isn't black

Consumer review by:

Made my old monitor look REAL bad

 

Buy this!

Bought this cause I'm tired of my PC thinking it is a TV (Tired of current monitors all being 1080p. (I WANT HIGHER VERTICAL RESOLUTION! Stop going wider and give me some verticle!) ; Black is VERY black. White is VERY white (Not grey). VERY NICE

Vertical adjustment lock just a bit wonky
