6 Reasons For for Choosing the Acer KA S220

Larger Display Resolution

The Acer KA S220 has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB, which is twice as large display resolution as the Asus VS197DP (1366 x 768 (WXGA) pixels) and twice as large display resolution as the DELL UltraSharp 1909W (1440 x 900 (WXGA+) pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Marginally Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Acer KA S220 has a horizontal viewing angle of 170° (as do the Asus VE228H, the Asus VS197DP and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB), whereas the DELL UltraSharp 1909W is only a 160° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (10° narrower). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Ultra High (100000000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The Acer KA S220 has an ultra high (100000000:1) typical contrast ratio, which is 3 times the typical contrast ratio of the Asus VE228H, the DELL UltraSharp 1909W and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB (low). We do not know what type of typical contrast ratio the Asus VS197DP have. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

HDCP

The Acer KA S220 has an HDCP (as do the Asus VE228H, the DELL UltraSharp 1909W and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB), whereas the Asus VS197DP does not have this feature. More ...

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Cheaper to Run by $33 Over Five Years

The Acer KA S220 is $9 cheaper to run than the DELL UltraSharp 1909W and $33 cheaper to run than the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB over five years. More ...

Superior Energy Efficiency Rating

The energy efficiency rating of the Acer KA S220 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Asus VE228H is "C" and the rating of the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB is "A+".

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Acer KA S220

2.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Acer KA S220 has a display diagonal of 21.5" (as does the Asus VE228H), whereas the Asus VS197DP and the DELL UltraSharp 1909W are both 19" PC monitors (2.5" smaller) and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB is a 24" PC monitor (2.5" bigger). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Does Not Have a Built-in USB Hub

The Acer KA S220 does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Asus VE228H and the Asus VS197DP), whereas the DELL UltraSharp 1909W and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB have this feature. More ...

'USB Hub' indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Acer KA S220 does not have a built-in speaker (As do the the Asus VS197DP and the DELL UltraSharp 1909W), however the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB do. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Acer KA S220 has received a Kagoo Score of 81, whereas the Asus VE228H scored 85 and the Asus VS197DP scored 82.

$32 More Expensive

The Acer KA S220 is more expensive than the Asus VS197DP by $22 and more expensive than the DELL UltraSharp 1909W by $32.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 retailer sell the Acer KA S220, but 11 retailers sell the Asus VE228H and 4 retailers sell the Asus VS197DP. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this PC monitor, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Over Seven Years Older

The Acer KA S220 is older than the Asus VE228H by 11 months, older than the Asus VS197DP by five years and older than the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB by eight years.

Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Acer KA S220 is 80%, whereas the average user rating of the Asus VE228H is 89% (based on 437 reviews) and the Asus VS197DP is 85% (based on 147 reviews).

Worse Brand

Acer PC monitors have an average rating of only 94.2%, but Asus has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the KA S220 in the US is $96.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Asus VE228H is a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Acer KA S220, the Asus VS197DP and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB. That's 10° wider than the DELL UltraSharp 1909W (160°). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

HDMI

The Asus VE228H has an HDMI, however the Acer KA S220, the Asus VS197DP, the DELL UltraSharp 1909W and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB do not. More ...

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specialised interface for transferring high quality audio & visual data from a data source (such as a DVD player or computer) to a TV or monitor.

An HDMI connection on your monitor allows for extremely high-quality audio/visual transmission from a computer or DVD player, meaning your films will sound and look the best they can be.

HDCP

The Asus VE228H has an HDCP, and so do the Acer KA S220, the DELL UltraSharp 1909W and the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB, whereas the Asus VS197DP does not. More ...

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Built-in Speaker

The Asus VE228H has a built-in speaker, and so does the Philips Brilliance 241B4LPYCB, whereas the Acer KA S220, the Asus VS197DP and the DELL UltraSharp 1909W do not. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Better Kagoo Score
