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...

Still kicking.

 

I keep reading all these awesome builds people do with new monitors, but I bought this in 2006 or 2007 and this thing is still a beast. I'm not sure if I need to upgrade but I run this in 1900x1200 and have zero issues. Coloration is great, response...

Bezel is a bit large, but everything was back then.

Still going...

 

This monitor was (and still is) one of the best tech purchases i've made over the years (and i'm a tech freak). Great colours, great contrast, a fast 2ms panel. I've had it since 2008 and it still works flawlessly (no dead/stuck pixels) and it has seen...

Stand is very basic....

4 of 4 units still going strong

 

I bought four of these monitors around 2008. All four are still going strong -- not a single problem whatsoever, despite eight or more hours of daily use, dozens of relocations, and maybe even a little abuse along the way. About to retire these in...

None worth mentioning.

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
