8 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This PC screen received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from digit.in.

Popular Choice

The S240HL is one the most popular PC display currently on the market according to sales data from Amazon.

Reasonably Priced

Three people who purchased the Acer S240HL thought it was good value for money. Expert review site Digit.in said in their Acer S240HL review “What would normally be a lack-lustre monitor is worth recommending simply because it has the best price to performance ratio” and gave the Acer S240HL a rating of 4 stars. Digit.in also mentioned “This is an average monitor at an exceptional price”. Digit.in also mentioned “Value for money”.

Good Size

One Acer S240HL reviewer said in their reviews that this PC monitor was compact. Digit.in wrote “The monitor is literally a black rectangle with a compact s”.

Acer Has Good LCD Screen Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Acer LCD screens and also specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good reviews.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago.

Other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to look at include the Asus VS239[plb_1386925_price], the Hanns.G HL226[plb_2187706_price], or the Acer G237HL[plb_2266292_price] which has better reviews.

Quite Fast Response Time

Across all the medium monitors that came out more than two years ago the response times range from 1ms to 40ms. At only 5 milliseconds, the Acer S240HL has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Shallow

When compared to other PC screens of a similar spec and age to the S240HL that we have assessed the depth of, the Acer S240HL's depth of only 12.9 millimeters is one of the shallowest. The average depth of flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to the S240HL is 110mm.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago, the Acer S240HL does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq BL2211[plb_2022153_price], or the iiyama B2283HS[plb_2323545_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

LCD screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], or the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price].

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
