Consumer review by:

Only worth it, when on sale.


Overall, this monitor was definitely worth the on-sale $150 price point. However, if the monitor was over this price - I can't say I would recommend.

At $150 price point, this monitor was certainly worth it. Great picture quality, solid resolution, and the size (24'') makes it above average (21.5'') without destroying your eyes. The monitor itself is not bad looking either with the clean edges and...

The built-in speakers - which were a selling point when deciding to buy this monitor - are not worth it. Trying to save on maybe $20 or $40 by not having to buy separate speakers turned out to be a bad decision, since the built in speakers in this...

Acer S241HL bmid (UM.FS1AA.001)


The color is beautiful, the tilt does exist and is just enough for high/low chairs, and the power button is obviously distinct, even for those dark hours

None as of this moment

You probably shouldn't


I have been getting half the dead pixels through RMA so I am hoping that the next one I get back will have nothing wrong with it.

When it works it is an amazing display. Crisp and clear. Game systems and PC look great on it

I bought two when there was a sale on them and one of the first ones had two dead pixels out of the box. Just recently got it back from an RMA and hooked it up. When checked on a white background I quickly noticed that there was a dead pixel in almost...

Best monitor I've had


Perfect colors ; Great screen size, also nice and slim ; Lightweight, thought still heavy enough to bloody my nose when it fell on my face (involved ducktape; atypical usage) ; Due to my jury rigging this thing has fallen over twice and fell on the...

Its very bright even on 0 brightness, Its fine if you keep your room dimly lit

Great monitor, terrible repair service


As soon as this monitor shows problems, buy a different one, because you'll waste more than its price in shipping and waiting.

Very decent monitor for the price, crisp picture, HDMI port is nice and not as common as it should be

After well over a year, the monitor started rebooting randomly. Sent in for repairs, monitor comes back a month later with a giant shadow on the board. Fought with customer support for a week to get them to supply a shipping label, and the monitor...

Good Upgrade


It was a good deal when the reg price is 199.99. I'm satisfied.

So far no problems. Good, sharp, bright display. Easy set up. I've played a few games with it and it will take some getting used to. This monitor is an upgrade from my first monitor an Acer V223. Going to watch some blue ray movies on this quite a bit...

I would have to agree with some of the other reviews here, I don't like the fact that the connections are sticking out the back. At least the power connector has a 45 degree plug, though my HDMI sticks out the back. Oh, and the buttons on the bottom,...

Monitor working great


Vivid picture, much larger screen than previous one, easy to install


Consumer review by:

Excellent monitors for gaming


Been gaming on the new rig with these and they made the games look great. Lots of real estate and having 2 of these completed the rig. Caught them on sale and they are totally worth the price. Packaged well to help avoid inevitable dropping and...

No dead pixels ; super bright ; Vesa 100 mounting ; HDMI, DVI


Consumer review by:

Excellent screen for the money


Great color depth, contrast/brightness, size and input selections

The monitor base (stand) is not as solid as I would prefer. (Replacing with a height adjustable vesa stand) ; The OSD menu is a challange to use due to the flimsy nature of the stock monitor base. Even though I point out the cons, this screen is still...
