Customer Reviews

Color looks very good and it's bright.
The stand was a bit of a disappointment, as it's just a tad wobbly and my monitor is (ever so slightly) off level.

Would definitely buy another one in a heartbeat!!

I bought mine 7 months ago, and it was a great value at $180. Almost a five star product, but some minor issues. When I opened the box, I was shocked to find an HDMI, DVI, and VGA cable waiting inside. I figured most companies would make you purchase the HDMI and DVI separately, so that was a nice surprise. This is good for the person that doesn't know to tell the Best Buy salesman to piss off when he tries to sell them a Monster HDMI cable for $80. I'm buying another one of these monitors, so that should tell you something.

-Excellent picture quality for the price range
-Very small and lightweight, but solid structure (read below about the stand - the exception)
-Sleek, attractive, minimalist design
-Comes with HDMI, DVI, and VGA cords
-No problems interfacing with laptop and desktop computers
-No dead pixels

-Less than perfect buttons and user interface
-Can't disable the power button's light
-No extra features like speakers or USB Hub (but I knew that getting into the deal, so I didn't take off any points)

When I first plugged it into my laptop, there were no problems recognizing it or getting it to display in full resolution. I wasn't too happy with the default coloring (it seemed rather cold to me) so I played with it for a bit, and it looks great now.

User Interface and Buttons:
I was stuck at 4.5 stars, and this is the part that made me go with four stars instead of five. The user interface is pretty bad. The buttons aren't labeled because they are multi-function. When you press any of them, the menu appears on screen and assigns each button an action. You get to choose between a user mode and four others (Eco, Standard, Graphics, and Movies).

Acer's software doesn't report firmware version number. I have a manufacture date, "ISO week 30", 2011 and my serial serial number.

I compared the 231HL against existing higher quality LCDs: the $400 IPS based Dell U2410 Dell UltraSharp U2410 24-inch Widescreen LCD High Performance Monitor with HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort and HDCPand Sharp's $1000 VA technology 46SE94U Sharp Aquos LC46SE94U 46-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV, both with CFL.

Plug and play using HDMI input
The bright power light isn't annoying. The light points down, and softly lights up the bottom right of the screen without projecting light towards a room, whether its blue or orange light
The tilt stand adjusts the viewing angle for the best spot depending on the users sitting position; its minimum compensation for lack for a height adjustment
The Acer LED back light is uniform without back light bleed
The Acer calibration software is slow, functional and bug free. Acer's proprietary calibration scheme is easy to use.

The default colors settings are very bad, compared to the Dell or Sharp. There is no black, colors are washed out by the bright light, and it hurts the eyes. Images appear washed out and small fonts are blurry.

The viewing angle is smaller than advertised. Monitor tilt by its maximum 15 degrees will cause a color or grey shift. The images is best looking perpendicular at the monitor, head on.

Ok so before I comment on these, I wanted to give some qualifications. I am a professional photographer, who loves to have good (not necessarily the newest) tech.

Setting this monitor up was easy, just screw in the stand and you are ready to go. The monitor itself seems solid, and is heavy enough for its size to keep it firmly on the ground. The only problem I had with the build of this monitor was the stand. It seems a little cheap. I'm not worried about it falling over, but I feel as though for the money spent Acer could have gone with a nicer plastic. Another minor annoyance was that the VGA, DVI and HDMI ports are all horizontal instead of vertical. This means two things: (1) heavier cables like DVI pull down and will wear the connection over time, and (2) wall mounting is near impossible without an ungodly gap. It's not hard to have vertical connections, and more people do it nowadays for the above reasons.

This was my first LED monitor, and sadly I only have the Apple LED laptop screens to compare it to (unfair advantage in quality being IPS level). That said at this price point you're not going to get too much better. The LED backlight allows for blacks to look awesome, and there is absolutely no light leakage that one might find on LCD monitors with their (on average) two lights. That said, there was something about this monitor that made it a little sketchy for precision photographical work and graphic design. It had a blue hue to it, which was difficult to remove with several different color correction methods, and displaying gradients was a little tough. After hours of tweaking I did get it to look pretty darn good, which saved this monitor a review star, but since then I have upgraded to an LG IPS.
