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.

  • Summary: reliable, sylish, very skinny.... Only flaw is no speaker. It looks very nice on my desk. The screen of the moniter is clear. If you have a budget limit, it will be your only choice.

The other guy must have had a broken monitor

  • 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?

Acer S240HL

  • 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

Exactly what you're looking for.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Very good monitor, but check your cables!

Elliot, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great monitor choice as I was recommended by a friend to get it as I have swapped from a 22inch 1680x1050 resolution which was a really awkward aspect ratio of 16:10 which is no longer standard rather than this monitors 16:9 aspect ratio which has made display setting changes much easier. The monitor is a very slim and takes up noticeably less space than my old one used to.

Be sure to calibrate your monitor

  • Summary: Using this display with both a late 2010 Macbook Air and a 2012 Macbook Pro, and it works very well with them - the Mini-Displayport to HDMI cable is the easiest way to connect them. When I first unpacked the display I thought that the screen was pretty turgid, and it was only when I used the Mac's Display Calibration tool that the colours became much crisper. Here's the advice I read: "Open System Preferences and click the Displays icon.

  • Summary: Point 1,,,,I was expecting to wait a few days or even a week for this to arrive. Point 2,,,, it took two days !!!! I hadn`t even got ready for it, as in shifting my old 19 inch Acer monitor,,,,which I loved to bits. Point 3 ,,,,,Took all of 5 minutes to put together, ie stand and cables and plug and play.
