Acer S243HL review: Acer S243HL


Let's get this out of the way right off the bat. If you're looking for a thin, LED-based display with a penchant for the glamorous, you'll want to go with the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 . While the 24-inch Acer S243HL shares many of the same attributes...

The Acer S243Hl has a unique aesthetic; has two HDMI ports.

The Acer S243HL has a dim screen and a high black level that adversely affects its color accuracy; no DVI port.

The Acer SL243HL is a great-looking monitor with drab colors that leave a lot to be desired.

Acer S243HL


This 24-inch monitor offers lots of display for your dollar and a super-thin profile.

Excellent picture quality and color depth ; Wide viewing angles ; Easy to switch between display modes ; Generous warranty

Lighter colors wash out ; Display doesn't feel as sturdy as others ; No DVI port

Consumers can find the Acer S243HL for as low as $239, an aggressive price point for a 24-inch monitor with a good picture and slim profile. The 24-inch Dell ST2420L benchmarked better when comparing contrast and scaling, but ultimately, we prefer the...

The Acer S243HL offers 24-inches of screen real estate, a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and a 2ms response time

An aggressively priced LCD screen that’s supremely capable in the visual department. An exceptional value-buy.

Acer S243HL bmii


The Acer S243HL bmii does some things right, but there are a few aspects that need improving. Unfortunately, the S Series Acer monitors do not come with either of the two best features for monitors, IPS technology and adjustable stands. For those...

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

The Acer S243HL bmii 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.

Acer S243HLAbmii review


Acer have combined industrial style with difficult usability with this 24-inch monitor

Slim screen ; Nice looking design

Wobbly stand ; Tilt could be better

Acer S243HL review


With a striking design this could well be the future look for all monitors

Nice design ; Two HDMI ports ; Full HD resolution

White balance a bit off ; No DVI

The nice design and good picture quality mean you can't go far wrong with this LCD monitor

Acer S243HL review


While most monitors look roughly similar, Acer has taken a little time to design the stunning-looking 24in Full HD (1,920x1,080) S243HL. Instead of having ports on the back of the screen, the S243HL's screen is attached to an L-shaped stand that houses...

It looks stunning and the two HDMI ports are welcome, but you can get better image quality for less

Acer S243HL monitor


A very, very impressive monitor, with not only 24 inches of widescreen HD goodness, but all in a 15 mm thin body.

Full 1080p HD support, 2x HDMI connectors.

Speakers not that great, adjustment controls difficult to manage.

Awesomely crisp colors and images, blacks are very deep and bright colors pop out ; no blurry/streaky images ; speakers are LOUD for their size and don't sound too bad considering

none so far, a top notch product
