7 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

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

Top Seller

The S240HL is one the fastest selling PC monitor currently available for purchase.

Reasonably Priced

A number of Acer S240HL reviewers reckoned that it was good value for money. Three years ago expert review site Digit.in wrote “What would normally be a lack-lustre monitor is worth recommending simply because it has the best price to performance ratio”. Digit.in also wrote “This is an average monitor at an exceptional price”. Digit.in also said “Value for money”.

Good Size

One Acer S240HL reviewer who bought it reckoned that it was compact. Three years ago expert website Digit.in said “The monitor is literally a black rectangle with a compact s” in their review of the Acer S240HL and scored it 4 stars.

Acer Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors

Acer is one of the better rated PC monitor brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Acer also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display

This PC monitor has an LED display, which is typical of many PC monitors of a comparable type and age to it.

Other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price], the iiyama XU2390HS[plb_2204569_price], or the Benq BL2201[plb_2333127_price].

Quite Fast Response Time

At only 5 milliseconds, the Acer S240HL has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years. Across all the medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the S240HL the response times range from 1ms to 69ms, and the average response time is 6.2ms.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £20.00

The S240HL has increased in price by £20.00 in the last 17 days.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that came out around the same time as the S240HL, the Acer S240HL does not have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth also looking at other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the RL2455[pl_2006981_price], or the GW2460HM[pl_1521708_price] both from Benq or the Asus VW22[plb_1584662_price].

Not 3D

Most LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years are not 3D. The Acer S240HL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

PC displays which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], or the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] or the Acer GN246HL[plb_2263973_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the S240HL, the Acer S240HL does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the VK228H[pl_1386924_price], or the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price] both from Asus which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated
