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

Great Monitor

 

I would recommend this to everyone. I used this monitor for 3 years with absolutely 0 issues.

0 dead pixels, worked perfectly from the start.

Not anything comes to mind..

Defective

 

Cheap

There was a big 2 inches dent in the middle of the screen Sold as a Grade B, but was much more like a grade D or E (had my credit quite quickly tho)

Poor color settings, no mounting holes, no HDMI

 

Just spring another 30 bucks for a better screen. I regret buying this one, because even with an adapter, it doesn't mount the same NOR look the same (colors) as my other acer 23". I've tried to adjust the colors to match, but I can't nail the issue...

Cheap for a 23"

See title? Heh...

Questionable Quality Control

 

I purchased two of these monitors after my previous units started dying on me. One of the monitors came with the base plate from a different Acer monitor, so it will not clip correctly onto the mounting pillar for the monitor. This causes the monitor...

Price - Especially on Sale

Packaging was somewhat substandard. Quality Control and confidence in the refurbishing work done is not good.

Was good until now

 

Bright whites, didn't really have any ghosting issues from the games I played.

A bit slower to start. After buying this March 2014 until now, I had no issues. Now I am in the market for a new monitor, because this one suddenly has a giant green bar covering half my screen. The bar is there even if I unhook all cables but the...

This screen is amazing

 

Perfect Monitor for gaming and casual use.

This doesn't look Refurbished at all, looks brand new... Amazing for it's price.

No cons, no scratches. Packing was not like how some people explained in the reviews. Everything was and still is 10/10 for me.

Decent monitor

 

If your on a budget to ahead and get this monitor. If your looking for something to last and be more durable get something with more of a standard power adapter. And if you want great video quality find something else. My old "17 dell lcd from 2002 has...

Cheap. Colors are not bad and the profile is very thin

Power cord is extremely fragile. It has been sitting in the same position since owning it and it will randomly turn off and back on. Even more so when you very slightly bump the power cord in the back. Contrast is terrible. There are no blacks, just greys

Great refubished monitor + price

 

Based on other reviews. And yeah some had issues of stuff being shipped messed up and other not. I am overall happy with a large monitor that plays pc games with great graphics and no problems. I would buy three more for around the house if I had the...

I thought buying a monitor of refurbished was a risk.But, so far, no issues. I found I can use this as a great gaming monitor. It is not top of the line, but for a budget builder like myself. I found it awesome for the price. And the graphics with...

some may be sent and will be different than others based on being a refurbished monitor. I lucked out I guess. But, new egg has always worked with me on anything so I figured I would give it a shot. cons, non to mention so far. Despite the cord it...
