6 Reasons For

Just Released Seven Months Ago

As one of the newer PC displays, this PC screen is likely to use more advanced technology.

Acer Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors built by Acer have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

1080p Video Mode

This flatpanel monitor has a 1080p video mode, which is the most commonly found video mode on flatpanel monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC displays that came out in the last year.

Chart Edit

Very Low Annual Energy Consumption

Medium monitors that have been available for the last year have annual energy consumptions of between 23kWh and 140kWh. The Acer K242HYL has a fairly low annual energy consumption (only 31 kilowatt hours) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec PC displays.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Response Time

New comparable spec PC monitors have response times of between 1ms and 20ms. At only 4 milliseconds, the Acer K242HYL has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £24.35

In the last 59 days the price of the K242HYL has increased by £24.35.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Acer K242HYL does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the K242HYL.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the I2475PXQU[pl_3351363_price], or the E2475PWJ[pl_3353471_price] both from AOC which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Acer K242HYL does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other new medium monitors also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The K242HYL does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC displays that have been available for a similar time to the K242HYL also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many PC monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Display Brightness

Across all the PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the K242HYL the display brightness range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m². At only 250 candellas per square meter, the Acer K242HYL has a quite dim display brightness compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the K242HYL.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the K242HYL have between one and three HDMI ports, including the K242HYL which has one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

The power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of latest similar spec LCD screens range from 0.21W to 52W. At 19 Watts, the Acer K242HYL has a fairly high power consumption when in PowerSave mode compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the K242HYL.

3 Other reasons to consider the Acer K242HYL

Running Costs Are Average

This flatpanel monitor has an efficiency rating of A, and the K242HYL is typical compared to the other 395 new medium monitors that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the K242HYL is £37.

LCD Display Type

The K242HYL has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most recently released comparable spec PC monitors.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC displays that have an LCD Display currently available including the Acer B246HL[plb_3782967_price] which has better reviews.

If the display type of this PC screen is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the Acer S230HL[plb_2701269_price] (LED,LCD and cheaper), or the iiyama GE2488HS-B2[plb_3704771_price] (LED and cheaper).

Average Width

At 557 millimeters, the Acer K242HYL has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other latest PC monitors.

If you would consider a PC screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the Hannspree HL247HGB[plb_3353468_price] (561mm) which is also cheaper.
