Acer S231HL


Beneath the lower bezel are five buttons that are used to activate and navigate your way through the settings menu system. Pressing any button brings up an on-screen quick-launch menu with function icons positioned above each button. Shortcuts include...

Affordable. HDMI, VGA, and DVI video inputs. Thin profile

Weak grayscale performance. Tilt-only stand. Narrow viewing angles

The Acer S231HL is an affordable 23-inch monitor offering three video ports and an ultra-slim profile, but its performance is only average.

Strong color reproduction with little to no flexibility.

Good black level; Decent color reproduction

No stand flexibility, limited connectivity options; Terrible menu system

If you’re looking for a monitor with good performance that’s low-maintenance and cheap, the HP S2031 is perfectly suited to that end.Read More...

Acer S231HL


The Acer S231HL is a solid choice in monitors, with extremely low energy consumption and technology that, while dated in some respects, is streamlined to improve performance.

Of all the monitors we reviewed, this one has the lowest power consumption

The Acer S231HL has minimal adjustability, which is inconvenient

The convenience factor is what hurts this monitor. Improving that alone would have made this monitor measure up far better.

Don't waste your money on ACER, buy a better brand name and get a good monitor/display.

Nothing good to say about ACER

Off colors: blues are purple-ish, reds are orange-ish, yellow and green off-color. I returned to Acer Repair depot in TX, they returned to me as NO PROBLEM! Either Techs are color-blind, or they know this model HL is bad. I think the L is for LED backligh

Acer S231HLbid (ET.VS1HP.001)


I'm looking (and waiting) for a new gaming monitor, the ROG Asus ones look good and the new G-Sync will be coming out shortly. I'm not buying any monitor till those come out, kinda like not buying SB-E when you knew that Haswell was a month away

Used since 12/2011. Looks great and seems to be a great deal. I game on it all the time and it works very well and looks as good as I could expect

2/2014 advertised for the same price, on sale no less, for the same price I bought it for in 2011. I saw the "sale" price and knew I didn't pay that

Good for the price...


Not sure what the problem was, going to have it checked out here in a couple of days. Will follow up

Great monitor while it was working. Colors were not as off as other comments had mentioned. Cheap price

I had this monitor for 4 months. Just tried to turn it on one day and nothing. I had rarely used it as well... Maybe like 20 times tops. Quite disappointed

Excellent quality monitor


Replaces an older LCD monitor. I was not expecting much change but have been very pleasantly surprised at the improvement in picture quality. I am now thinking I should replace some other older monitors as well.
