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 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

Beatiful looking poor execution


Beautiful picture and a very good design. Lightweight and extra wide. 2 HDMI ports and a built in speaker. Useful since this doubles as my second monitor for my computer and the output source for my PS3

The speaker is probably the worst I've heard in quite some time and I'm including those potable speakers for ipods they sell at "5 Below." My other gripe is with the menu design. I bought this monitor because it had two input sources but if you have...

One dead pixel


The monitor is great for movies and - if I understand the kids right - for games. It is just OK as a computer monitor since the colors seem to be off. But then: I am somewhat colorblind. Overall: so-far-so-good except for the dead pixel.

Price - weight - look - style - power consumption

One dead (white) pixel in middle-upper position ; Speakers are - as mentioned before - not good for anything (they are worse then my laptop speakers)

Nice monitor


I'm going from a monitor that has a 12ms response time 500-1 contrast ration and max resolutions of 1280x1024.

Monitor looks good

Love this monitor!


I love this thing, it's been great for gaming and other applications. 2 HDMI ports which is fantastic, they even throw a HDMI cord for you to have. I give this 4.5 out 5 but 4 is too low, so a 5! BUY THIS MONITOR Also pick your self up a mx518 mouse...

Beautiful Screen ; Large and full of colors and textures ; SLIM! Literally like a finger wide ; Light weight and affordable for this type of range ; 2 MS response time and you can definitely use that ; Awesome for full 1920x1080 P

For some reason they do not have an option on the menu for speaker setup, supposedly you plug in the input and that`s that! But mine did not work for some reason, ah well ; Cant mount this as the stand is wired through to the monitor
