Acer P243W


With its handsome, sleek lines, the Acer P243W ($499.99 list) is sure to add a touch of style to your desktop. Designed for the home user, this 24-inch monitor has a native resolution of 1,920 by 1,200 pixels, is brightly lit, and does an outstanding...

Crisp, bright image. Elegant design. HDMI port

Lacks multimedia features. Narrow vertical viewing angle. Weak light grayscale performance

The Acer P243W is an attractive 24-inch LCD monitor that delivers a bright picture. Its handling of small text is among the best I've seen. Still, other performance aspects are not so impressive, and I was disappointed by the lack of multimedia features.

Acer P243W 24 inch Widescreen Review


Having the absolute best components does not mean anything to a gamer, unless he has a monitor to play his games at the highest resolution and image quality. Personally, I like to play each of my games on a 19" widescreen monitor; anything smaller just...

24" widescreen ; Crystal-clear quality ; DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub connectors ; 3000:1 contrast ratio ; Windows Vista Certified ; 2ms (GTG) response time

No software included ; No speakers (user preference) ; No headphone jack (user preference)

Overall, I was very impressed with how the Acer P243W 24" Widescreen monitor displayed my games, video, OS, and applications. Everything was so crystal clear, and the colors were all very vibrant and sharp. I cannot even begin to describe how...

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250


Bought my 24" P243WAid back in 2008 and just dropped and broke it last Sunday. R.I.P. It had great picture quality and no complaints from me at all. I probably would have kept it a few more years. I wish I didn't try to mount it on a Ergotron LX Desk...

It was quite heavy at over 15 lbs, but to be expected for it's age

Acer P243WAid


This has been my every day use screen since it was purchased around 07/08. It is as good as new

If everything was built this good, companies wouldn't be able to sell anything new. No one would have a reason to upgrade

Still going strong


I bought this in 2008 and it's still running with zero issue or quality degrade. I just bought Acer G6 27" to replace it and upgrade or just put next to it, haven't decided yet

Still working


I purchased this in 2008 and it's still functioning perfectly in 8/2014 and I use it quite often. I wrote this review as a little nod to Acer quality for this monitor

Great Monitor


This is a great monitor. I sit in front of it working in various 3-D CAD packages frequently. It makes a great picture... especially for the price

From 19' to this wow..


Wish you could adjust the monitor more.

This monitor is amazing coming from a 19 inch old dell lcd. Playing CoD5 on this compared to my old monitor is night and day. Cant wait to use this for some blue ray movies ; No dead pix

The box came pretty banged up so I was worried but everything is working great

I am still rating this monitor 5 eggs just due to the fact that it is a great buy. The back light isn't enough of a deal to mess with anything. you can only see it if the screen is totally blacked out. I am currently using this monitor for my gaming...

If you are interested in using this for gaming read ; 24" widescreen ; Great color depth ; Whites are white and blacks are black ; Beautiful sleek design ; no buttons. just back lit areas that you touch for controls...if that makes sense ; Buttons have...

VERY small amount of back-light around the edges

Awesome Selection!


Most awesome purchase. Acer products have also been that "Everything random" sort of brand. Some are good, some are bad, as well as you can build an entire station with just acer products. On this particular monitor, they are Good!

The monitor is HUGE! It's definitely a lot larger than my TV. it is also ridiculously bright (had to turn it down upon first starting). The resolution is absolutely superb as well as the colour quality and everything else. The colour is black which...

It's a bit heavier than I thought but I think of it as it won't move around as much. The menu is set-up kind of funny but you can still find and adjust everything
