Acer S Series monitors are very slim yet spacious displays that are great for multitasking and web browsing. High-def visuals leap to life thanks to Full HD resolution and an extremely high contrast ratio. You'll appreciate both the imagery and the look of this streamlined yet powerful Acer monitor.

Easy to set up
Very bright display
On-screen menus are easy to navigate
Horrible viewing angles
On-screen menus do not offer enough customization
No HDMI port (I hear other models have them. Mine does not.)
Slightly inaccurate colors
What's included in the box is the monitor itself, a stand to attach to the monitor and a base for it, a VGA cable, a power cable, and a CD with the manual and user guides in PDF form. The stand easily connects to the base. There is a screw on the underside of the base that secures the base to the stand. The stand fits into the monitor easily and feel very sturdy. On the other hand, it is very difficult to pull the stand out if you want to.
The monitor has both DVI and VGA ports. There isn't a HDMI port. I connected my computer using DVI. After both an Acer logo and an Energy Star logo, the thing finally gave me a picture. The display is very bright. It is not blindingly bright, but still pretty clear. There are six buttons on the under side of the display. Under the Acer logo is a small, but long plastic button that lights up. It is the power button. It took me a while to figure out that was the power button because that was not mentioned in the Quick Guide. It said there was a power button, but didn't say what it was. There is a standard power indicator on that button, but it is small and very hard to notice.
To the right of that button are five more buttons that control what Acer calls the OSD (On-Screen Display). Pressing any of these black buttons brings up a small menu that tells you what each button does. The left/1st button button gives you five presets to choose from. There is an ECO preset which cuts down on brightness/contrast that's obviously for power saving. Next is a User mode for storing your own configuration. After that is the standard mode which is what's selected by default. A Graphics mode is next and last is a Movie mode. All presets are bad and I recommend avoiding them to roll with your own settings.
The 2nd button from the left is an auto-configuration button that only works through a VGA cable. It sets the positioning, Focus, and Clock of the monitor by itself. The third button gives you a more detailed OSD with menus to navigate for some slight settings. The first page gives you a Brightness setting and a Contrast setting. There are also positioning, Clock, and Focus settings but I'm not using VGA so those are disabled. At the bottom is a Color Temperature setting. There are only two settings, Warm and Cool. I find them both to be too extreme. The next tab on the OSD is for setting the timeout. The third tab gives you some more settings. Wide mode, DDC/CI, ACM, Input, Language, and a Factory Reset. I recommend disabling ACM (Adaptive Color Management). It dynamically changes your colors (actually brightness) based on the motion of the current picture. The forth tab is an information tab. The 4th and 5th buttons are the up and down buttons for navigating the menu and changing the value of your selection.
The OSD doesn't have many options to change the overall picture. The brightness setting controls the monitor's light. The contrast setting does what it is supposed to do. The color temperature settings does what you'd expect. That's all the monitor gives you to control its picture. It is very bare bones. No matter how you set it, you will always notice that there is a slight yellowish tint to the overall picture and the colors seem a little washed out. There is no way to control the individual color channels (R,G,B) on the monitor itself. To get that, you have to download something called Acer eDisplay Management. One would think something so important would be included with the monitor, but it's not. ADC allows you to control the monitor's brightness, contrast, and change the three color values (R,G,B) individually all through a simple GUI. Adjusting that and the settings through your graphics card's control panel is essential to getting decent color from this monitor. Even then, it's still not that good.
Sadly, all the adjustments in the world will not save the very bad viewing angles. I know this monitor is a TN panel and bad viewing angles come with the territory, but this monitor is worse than normal. It is much worse than my older monitor and it is the main flaw. One must sit and stare straight at the monitor to not compromise the already average picture. One slight movement and you break it.
In summary, the S240HL is a very cheap monitor that's easy to set up with an OSD that's very simple to navigate. It is short on settings, has poor color accuracy, and very poor viewing angles, but it's hard to complain for the price.
My verdict: Don't buy. Save up if you can and get a better monitor.
