An Excellent Screen
I'm very pleased with this purchase. The one issue I was mildly concerned about, the stand, is actually no problem at all. The screen is mounted on a swivel that gives a (for my needs) adequate range - you can tilt it so the screen is slightly inclined toward the front, or back slightly. Otherwise, it pairs without problem with my MacBook. Good stuff.
Accurate enough colors for professional photo and video work
The Acer B243HL bmdrz is a mid-range to high-end 24" LCD high definition monitor with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. It features a 5ms response time, a dynamic contrast ratio of 8,000,000:1, integrated 2W stereo speakers and an adjustable design.
Additionally, the B243HL bmdrz sports 4 USB ports, DVI video in with HDCP support and a VGA analogue video input.
Acer's T231H does what it says on the tin: it's a 23in Full HD monitor with multitouch abilities. That it does its main job well enough is hardly the issue, though. Rather, it's that you can buy a monitor with far better image quality for much less, and multitouch on a desktop still offers few, if any, compelling reasons to shell out.
23-inch Full-HD monitor
The Acer T231H Multi-Touch monitor is quite an exciting product, though not an unalloyed good thing. Besides touch itself, it also offers a large screen and a Full High-Definition screen resolution to go with it. The pricing is not yet in budget territory, but the wide availability of the T231H in India validates Touch screen UI input, in a way.
Solid and flexible design
If you're in the market for a touch-screen display for a specific purpose, the T231H is worth considering and will also function well as a general use display. However, those simply looking to try out touch-screen controls for general applications would be better to hold off for now and opt for a cheaper screen that offers more solid performance in key areas.
Lowest power consumption.
The Acer S231HL does some things right, but there are a few aspects that need improving. Unfortunately, the S Series Acer monitors do not come with either of the two best features for monitors, IPS technology and adjustable stands. For those features, you will have to go with a different Acer series, just know that you will have to pay more for both. If you do not need the additional adjustability and connections, then this LCD monitor may be just the thing for you.
Reliable multi-touch function.
While the multi-touch function works reliably, you'd have to have a real need for it before buying this monitor. Not simply because of the extra cost, but because the image quality doesn't appear to be as good as many others in Acer's considerable catalogue of displays.
