Three new Acer monitors arrive

Some pics of three new Acer monitors that recently arrived at CNET.

With every plain, black, new monitor that comes through here, I think I die a little inside. The constant lack of variety can slowly kill a man, even one with such a usually cheerfully disposition as me. Bottom line: more vendors need to take a crash course in product variety, if such a class exists.

Every once in a while, though, a vendor attempts something fairly new, design-wise, that, though not always practical, shows some unique craftsmanship at the very least.

I recently received three new Acer monitors. Two of the three follow many of the same design formulas as most monitors: a plain black chassis with a centered foot stand. The other, however, attempts to spice things up a bit.

Click on the pics below to see which of these monitors (the Acer T230H, D240H, or S243HL) is not like the other.
