Acer S230HL Abii

 

The Acer S230HL Abii is an energy-efficient 23-inch monitor offering dual HDMI inputs and good color performance at an attractive price.

Slim, stylish cabinet. Good color and small text quality. Two HDMI ports. Low-power consumption

Tilt-only stand. Some grayscale clipping. Narrow viewing angles

Consumer review by:

Decent monitor, low build quality.

 

Overall, it feels cheap and was poorly packed, but by no means is it a terrible monitor. The picture quality is nice and is suited well for the average budget-following user.

This monitor is somewhat cheap, good if you are trying to stay within a budget. It has DVI-D which is a must for crisp images. Colors and picture are decent, you get what you pay for

I received the package with almost no packing material inside the box to protect the delicate monitor. It had two rather deep scratches that I had to buff out with mineral oil. You can still see them when the monitor is off, but they are still (barely)...

Worth the price

 

I bought three of these refurbished and they all work great, there are no scratches or dead pixels and they have excellent resolution for the price

The stands are a pain to install, you have to put both hands on top and push down until you hear something pop then it will be locked in place. I thought I was going to break it because the screen is so thin

Acer S230HL Abd (ET.VS0HP.A03)

 

1920 x 1080 ; less than 100 bucks ; big ; DVI input ; It's all I ever need and want

I can tell it was refurbished. But i'm just picky ; No VISA mount

Consumer review by:

None

Perfect condition

 

Mixed reviews on the quality upon receiving the monitor. It's apparently hit or miss, but the RMA process is pretty good based upon other reviews. Definitely recommend this monitor.

Display looks great ; No dead pixels ; No scratches on frame ; Fully intact ; Came with DVI/VGA cables ; Looks great with gaming for the price, 5ms isn't bad ; On par with other 1080p monitors I have used, and nicely discounted

Can't mount (without modification/jerryrigging) ; That's it. Will edit if anything comes up

Not impressed

 

Good value for such a large screen

Fuzzy screen. Dark lackluster colors. Spent three hours calibrating image quality with minor results at best (used both windows 7 calibration tool, and online forums/websites). My old monitor that is six years older blows this out of the water as far...

Great Monitor Overall

 

This is a great monitor overall, the screen is fairly large and has a good display (though a tad dark). The monitor also came in great shape, no dead pixels, major scratches or anything of the sort

The two cons I can think of are ; 1: the heads up display to adjust the brightness, contrast, etc. is probably the most complicated I've ever used, although you kind of get the hang of it after a while. Not user friendly though unfortunately ; 2: The...

Quality monitor

 

I'll try a 120 hz monitor next as I do a lot of fps gaming and I very much desire not to see individual frames at 60 fps

Bright ; Easy to see during the day, NO GLARE! :D ; very deep blacks. love it ; very little ghosting - take it from an experienced fps gamer ; easy to clean screen

It takes around 5 seconds to switch from one pc's output to another pc's output, which is a little long for me

Glad i went Refurb

 

Great display ; Good color ; I was hesitant buying refurb, but i figured i would risk it to save more money for the GPU. I haven't had any issues, really. No dead pixels and works great

The menu is a little bit of a pain to navigate. Nothing that is a deal breaker though
