Would have been a great case!!!

 

As others have stated the speakers are basically worthless, I knew that going in, and it didn't matter to me, but I did not expect it to be so bad on colors and wobbly. I wonder if I can get a refund...

it was $119 on sale

Even on the lowest brightness settings and after mucking around with color calibration it is way too bright and all the colors are just so wrong. The stand is totally flimsy and if you so much as move your mouse or type too hard it's going to wobble ;...

Acer S241HL bmid (UM.FS1AA.001)

 

Screen and color display is nice

I have a 23" Samsung with no built in speakers. I bought this monitor because it was a little larger, but mainly due to the on board speakers. I finally get it, and test out the speakers to find out with the computer and monitor sound on full blast, I...

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

I have read that the speakers are poor. I have not even tried them as I use external ones. This monitor seems perfect for an economy setup. I dinged it a star because of my previous Acer experience.

As you can see this has HDMI input which at this price point is exceptional. Assembly was easy. You will need a screwdriver or a penny. It also came with the three different video cables which is unusual. No dead pixels. The picture is lovely,...

I finally got over my resentment towards Acer. Bought a Timeline laptop in 2009 which died in less than two years. Hopefully this product will last longer. Nothing like a bargain to help you let go

Works fine

I can't speak to the quality of the speakers, which I'm sure aren't great. Who buys a monitor based on speaker quality anyway? Overall, I am more than satisfied with the purchase and would definitely recommend it as a good quality product at a very...

It has a fair amount of screen real estate, especially if you are sitting right in front of it. I can dual pane documents and read the font easily (e.g., one Word document side by side with a PDF) although I still prefer a dual monitor setup,...

The settings menu is a little clunky to operate but it's not terrible once you get the hang of it

Great Picture, Terrible Sound

 

If you want this for the picture it's great, if you want to use the built-in-speakers don't plan on it being great.

Great Picture, stays cool, wonderful scaling and great quality

The built in speakers suck!! The sound quality is terrible, even with max volume on the monitor and through Window, the sound is barely audible. If you plan on using this for the built in speakers, think twice

Not reliable

 

Nice picture

Bad speakers. Smoked and stopped working after 1.5 years

Good monitor, bad sound

 

I use this monitor primarily to watch videos via BluRay & Fire Stick. While the sound is OK, it is not the best. An audio output would be perfect to add external speakers.

Great picture, HDMI input

speakers are low quality, no audio output jack

Great Monitor

 

The video works well no problems

I haven't been able to get the sound to work at all. Looking at the comments I'm not sure I want to go to the trouble of returning the entire unit to get sound working
