Dream Screens: Eye-Catching 24-Inch Monitors


Photograph by Robert CardinLaptops and tablets seem to get most of the attention these days--after all, they're great for working on the run. But once you settle down at your desk, it's nice to stretch out with the generous real estate that only a...

24" LCD Round-Up: Acer S242HL, Dell U2412M, And Samsung T24A550


Another batch of monitors just landed. This time, we're sampling 24" screens. If 27" is too big (and too expensive), and 23" is too small, this ...

We're pitting that model against a typical TN-based monitor and one that performs double duty as a TV. If you're looking slight more display surface than what a 23" screen offers, the interesting results we generated should help shape your choice as...

Very clean image, beautiful lighting and glass on the bottom. Goes great with my white tower. No hot spots or dead pixels after 6 months or so ; Nice sturdy base also that does not move

The monitor power button is a bit hard to trigger and I could see it breaking down after another year or so of heavy pushing

Outstanding colors!, sleek look, more than big enough, no ghosting that i can tell

Blacks as another customer are somewhat washed out not bad enough for me to send back being this is the first day i have owned it like i said not terrible blacks but not pitch black, stand a bit wobbly. So overall one egg off due to the blacks...

Amazing Monitor


It would be nice for Acer to have let people know that the clear object on the bottom of the monitor that is illuminated blue while in use and orange/yellow in sleep mode is actually the power button.

This monitor has extremely good quality. After using this it feels as though looking at other monitors on my laptop and television are lacking in quality. I use this monitor for gaming and have yet to find something wrong with it after hours and hours...

NO cons what so ever

Monitor is stable, slick, and the white color looks great. Resolution is fantastic. Got it on sale, so it was a great deal to boot

None that I can think of

Disappointed... :(


I suggest looking more into this monitor than the reviews written by others on this site. Having now seen comparison tests with other monitors involving this particular model, I made a big mistake in not looking at more professional, thorough opinions....

Not expensive

Blacks are washed out, prominent bright spot in the middle of the screen, text appears blurry. Actually worse than the monitor I was trying to replace it with, which might tell you something. Not sure why it has good reviews, I guess if you're looking...

Great monitor


Great picture, Details pop, nice bright back light, overall the internal functions of the monitor are as perfect as can be

However, this monitor is extremely thin, while not truly being a con this could still be an issue if you desk/station has a wobble--at all--as it has no vesa mounts and a small stand which arguably should be bigger considering this things wonderful...
