Acer S201HL


$170.00 Released July, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very accurate colors after calibration. Fast enough refresh rate for gaming. Uses very little power while in operation, almost no power draw while in standby.

The Cons:Large brick power supply that needs to be tucked away somewhere. A fair amount of side-illumination is visible, gray areas around the edges.

The Acer S201HL is a mid-range 20" HD computer monitor with Energy Star 5.0 certification. Its LED backlighting provides the S201HL with its 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio while its 5ms response time ensures clearer movement.

Product Shot 2 Additionally, the S201HL's 16.7 million Truecolour colour depth ensures more realistic image reproduction.

The S201HL's LED backlighting is capable of providing much darker blacks than standard LCD backlighting techniques, ensuring a much greater contrast ratio and a richer image. Its 5ms response time allows the S201HL to better handle fast action scenes and video gaming as it eliminates any ghosting and blurring that can occur on monitors with higher response times (particularly monitors with a response time greater than 8ms). Meanwhile, the S201HL's 16.7 million colours ensure that high resolution digital images and HD video will appear more true to life.
