Acer PC Displays Have Good Reviews

Acer medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all LCD screens Acer is one of the superior manufacturers.

At only 0.3 Watts, the Acer K242HL has a quite low power consumption when off compared to most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the K242HL.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Response Time

The average response time of medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the K242HL is 6.1ms. At only 5 milliseconds, the Acer K242HL has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the K242HL.

Chart Edit

The number of cables included found on the Acer K242HL is more than most similar spec PC displays that were released more than two years ago. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC monitor. The cables included AC,VGA are also found on this PC display.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched more than two years ago, the Acer K242HL is not 3D compatible.

PC monitors which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the AOC D2769[plb_1563236_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other PC screens that have been available for a similar time to the K242HL, the Acer K242HL does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the 272P4QPJKEB[pl_2997140_price], or the 241P4QPY[pl_1398366_price] both from Philips which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Acer K242HL does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC displays that were released more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

Other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at include the U2713H[pl_1518815_price], or the U2413[pl_1565290_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Mean Time Between Failures

At only 30,000 hours, the Acer K242HL has a fairly short mean time between failures compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to the K242HL. The mean time between failures of PC screens that are a comparable age to the K242HL range from 30h to 70,000h.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Acer K242HL

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Acer released the K242HL.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The Acer K242HL has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most flatpanel monitors of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Eizo FlexScan S2133[plb_1735097_price].

If the display type of this PC screen is too bad for you then you might want to consider the e2250Swdnk[pl_1364842_price] (LED and higher rated), the U2868[pl_2276998_price] (LED and higher rated), or the I2276[pl_2256588_price] (LED and higher rated) all from AOC.

Average Width

With a width of 567 millimeters, the Acer K242HL has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the K242HL.

If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might want to consider the B246[pl_1605013_price] (567mm), or the 246HL[pl_1498501_price] (567mm) both from Acer or the Packard Bell Viseo 243D[plb_1572095_price] (567mm).
