7 Reasons For

Good Connectivity

One person reckoned that the Acer S242HL was good in terms of HDMI connections. Five years ago Pcworld.com_techhive.com wrote in their review of this PC monitor “This 24-inch, matte, LED-backlit display with 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution has DVI, HDMI”.

Reasonably Priced

One Acer S242HL reviewer who purchased this PC monitor concluded that it was a bargain for the price. Expert website Pcworld.com_techhive.com mentioned in their review of the Acer S242HL “The $229 Acer S242HL looks like a bargain.” although they only scored it 40 out of 100.

Acer LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

On average Acer medium monitors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all PC monitors produced by Acer.

Price Has Recently Dropped by £15.21

The S242HL has dropped in price by £15.21 in the last 12 days.

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think the Lenovo T2324[plb_2910663_price], the Benq Zowie RL2460[plb_3761440_price], and the Asus VZ249H[plb_3707286_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
