Seems a good screen, bought it for a friend

Ran E. N., Amazon
10 August 2014
  • Summary: Seems a good screen, bought it for a friend. The two things not really great are the sound. Not loud enough. Read that of other people and they are right. Also it is a touch screen and when you see the object or point you want to touch and touch directly on it, the monitor records the touch a 1/4 to 1/2 away. Missing the contact entirely. Must be a way of correcting this but not sure how.

Shiny Screen, fragil

  • Summary: Good monitor, but no protection for glass on screen and it is very shiny. Also is relatively wide for the screen size.

Self help is the key

Mark Balcombe, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: The screen is great and it now works fine though no thanks to the on line chat person or the local call centre. I had to download the latest graphic drivers and make some changes, which were a total guess on my part, and then it works.

This Monitor Needs Significant Improvements

Robert C. Blondel, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I was very disappointed with the functionality of this Acer T232HL monitor as it performed extremely poorly in major areas. The Touch Screen Accuracy was spot on and worked great with Windows 8.1 with complete functionality The Picture and the Screen itself - -The colors were very muted and seemed almost like pastels. Absolutely no vivid colors no matter how you adjust them.

Looks great, feels great, screams cheap quality

Bin Pharting, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: This is a great looking monitor that is sleek and sexy. It's nice to have a flat front panel which is helpful with windows 8 gestures. The whole touch experience works really well and the screen seems to be as responsive as my ipad. The problem is that it makes random clicking noises, as if the plastic or capacitors are heating up and popping. This is highly irritating, especially if this monitor is right next to a bed!

Good and Bad for me.

H. Holland, Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: Howdy......the touchscreen works way better than my older T230H and I would rate that as 5 stars considering the current technology. What I don't like is the screen is way reflective and so is the bezel frame around it. I have it mounted on an ergotron desk mount and adjust it a lot as I need to change my sitting position frequently, the problem with this is two fold.

Just "Fine"

Beard///, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: The picture is really clear and the viewing angles are great because it's IPS. But it's not a great value. You are probably paying extra for features you won't use. Touch screens are great for tablets and laptops, but it's not practical on a desktop. I haven't reached out to touch this monitor since my second or third day with it. Get a nice touch pad. And it's awesome that it's capable of 3D with the right graphics card, but I have no interest in this.

Acer T232HL

Alexander, Amazon
9 February 2013
  • Summary: Since I am color blind, I am going to focus on the touch aspect of this monitor rather than the display. The monitor does seem nice and bright and sharp enough for my taste. With Windows 8, the touch interface of this monitor doesn't perform as well as an all-in-one or a laptop that has built in touch function. There is a slight delay from when you touch the screen until it registers.

Very nice monitor but needs better software

Gareth P., Newegg
26 October 2012
  • Summary: The hardware itself is a thing of beauty and it does indeed work with Windows 8 well for basic functionality. It is however screaming out for proper drivers and perhaps a desktop tool / tray icon that allows you to add custom gestures (similar to touchpad customizing apps). Overall, otherwise a nice monitor and definitely fun to play with. If you don't want anything more than basic functionality its pretty good.
  • Pros: The hardware itself is beautiful. The surface of the screen is sleek, responsive and easy to work with. Tilt functionality is a nice touch and the flat surface is ideal for windows 8. The contrast/brightness on the monitor is also really sharp and crisp. Easy to see from a very wide range of angles.
  • Cons: Whilst it claims Windows 8 Compatible logo there is basically zero supporting software for the monitor. The monitor installs as all generic devices (like USB HID Device) and does not even identify it as Acer so you cannot identify it in device manager. There is also no way to customize the touchscreen with custom gestures. The CD that comes with it contains nothing but a manual.

Ok but

uther ainsworth, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: it was an ok monitor, i bought this a few months ago now, a few pixels died, and earlier this afternoon there was a small accident, the screen fell flat against my desk and broke, for a monitor it is very fragile. Other than that the touch screen worked well.
