The other guy must have had a broken monitor

DDCollector, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Recently picked up this monitor to go side-by-side with my G246HL (a slightly different model). Nice bright picture, no lines or fuzziness, various picture settings built right into the monitor itself. Having the HDMI input is a nice touch alongside the VGA and DVI inputs. The base is much more sturdy than its close relative the G246HL. The bezel could be a bit thinner but for the price can you really ask for anything less?

Great value, not good enough for gaming but great for the office.

  • Summary: This is a good monitor for general work, if you want to watch movies, edit photos, or play games I probably wouldn't recommend it.

Acer S240HL

LakeMinnetonka, Officemax
27 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I've had this monitor for a few weeks now. I purchased it to run dual monitors off my HP laptop computer. One monitor is connected via D-Sub cable and the other connected via DVI cable. I had this unpacked, hooked up and running perfectly in less than 15 minutes. Having a 24" monitor as my main monitor, next to a 23" monitor, is fantastic! Working on spreadsheets and email is now a breeze! No more squinting at a small monitor. The picture is bright, crisp and clear.
  • Pros: Size, Clarity, Contrast
  • Cons: no cons that i have encountered

Stuck/Dead Pixels

MR DA ROE, Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: Bought this monitor to replace an old Samsung 22". A couple of my friends recommended this monitor and at such a low price, how could i say no? The monitor arrived, I plugged it in and there was a stuck pixel in the centre left section of the screen. This was incredibly annoying, as i thought dead/stuck pixels were a thing of the past. I returned the item to Amazon and received a replacement. I do thank Amazon for a flawless returns policy/service.

Exactly what you're looking for.

Brad Watson, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: If you've found this product for a reason then I would seriously recommend purchasing without any other consideration. It's an outstanding product, decent size and the bevels aren't too big. I ordered one a couple months ago and have literally just ordered another 2 more.

get an HDMI cable for it too

AG, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: huge improvement over hunching over my laptop! plus, now i can have babes around to watch movies. you'll get a much better/crisper quality image with either a HDMI cable, or DVI cable if you dont have an HDMI slot on your computer. some people are complaining about a black edge around the screen when using an HDMI cable. this is because your video driver is set to do some "overscan" by default.

Fantastic!!

No Bull, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: What a difference it's made to my sons gaming he said it's fantastic and totally changes the games he plays. Previous Monitor 19" Dell so that's understandable. Arrived on time no damage to packaging came with various power cables and a DVI connection cable so straight out the box and connect to computer no complaints at all . A really good purchase . would recommend to family and friends in a flash.

OK but beware the stem!

D. Hawkes, Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: As I perform a lot of astrophotography and associated image processing tasks I decided to buy this monitor with the expectation of it being superior to the pioneer plasma screen that I have been using. This plasma is a 42" TV connected to a media PC and I wanted a quality dedicated monitor for image processing.
