Date Issued: 15th May 2015

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

Now shipping with all but the cheapest complete PCs are LCD monitors. Advances in display manufacturing and associated cost reductions with economies of scale have brought LCD monitors into the mainstream, shipping with budget systems that start at just £400. LCD monitors come in all shapes and sizes, have differing resolutions and inputs. The purpose of this TekSpek is to provide a basic understanding of how LCDs work, delineate their desirable features, and to offer basic buying advice.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

HDTV 720/1080
Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

23.6" Acer KA240HQ FHD LED Monitor, 1920x1080, 60Hz, 16:9, 1ms, 100M:1, 300cd/m², Tilt, HDMI/DVI/D-Sub(VGA) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap, functional, does what it says. Needed a budget 1080p screen for an older system, this seemed to fit the bill pretty well. All in all, it's acer's standard UI/UX, which is a bit fiddly, but it works. Bezel's not overly thick and the stand was reasonably sturdy. Pros/Cons: +Cheap +Fast response time +Reasonably bright +Decent connection options -No DVI cable included -No DisplayPort

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst monitor I can remember I have an Asus that is 2 years old, cost about £20 more then, and it kills this. Played with the settings for half an hour and all the colours are completely washed out or over saturated. It really can't handle black.
Date published: 2018-01-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected. I compared monitors before deciding upon this one, originally wanted 1440p but this seemed like the perfect size and price for me during the Black Friday sales. No issues, easy to setup. I would certainly recommend this as a first-time setup for gaming at 1080p.
Date published: 2017-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New monitor is just what I wanted Had been using two monitors for quite some time as it gives a lot of space to park stuff I want to comeback to. I had a 20" and a 17" and this is a very sharp contrasty easy to view 24" screen that is nice to use. Not expensive either. Can't remember how long it took to arrive once ordered but it was only a couple of days if that. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Mnitor It's a quality product on a good prise. With two words if you want something big on a normal prise this is for you.

Hi, unfortunately Acer do not specify what type of power lead is included with this monitor so I would recommend contacting them directly for this type of information. Kind regards,
