Acer Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens
We calculated the average ratings for all Acer PC monitors and specifically for Acer medium monitors and found that in both cases Acer had good ratings.
100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The G227HQL has a maximum contrast ratio of 100000000:1. That's over twenty times the contrast ratio of the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 5000000:1.
This PC monitor's contrast ratio (100000000:1) is actually the best contrast ratio across all medium monitors that were released more than a year ago.
A Mega Contrast dynamic contrast ratio is the worst contrast ratio across similar types of PC monitor.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including the G247HYL ($114.99), the 42HQL ($107.99), or the K212HQL ($114.00) all from Acer which is cheaper.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many comparable spec PC displays that came out more than a year ago.
With a width of only 499 millimeters, the G227HQL is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the G227HQL. The average width of similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the G227HQL is 590mm, and the widths range from 51mm to 960mm.
If you would consider a PC display with a wider width then you might want to look at the DELL E2214H (513.2mm) which is also cheaper.
