Monitors
[ Music ] ^B00:00:03 >> Hi everyone. This is Eric Franklin of CNET.com, and we have sort of a triple threat here today. I recently reviewed three very similar Acer monitors. And rather than recording three different videos for each, apparently taking up way too much time for my lazy editor, who's usually watching -- ^M00:00:19 [ Thump ] ^M00:00:22 And rather than recording three different videos for my wonderful, beautiful editor and giving her too much work -- I mean, there's been a lot of Apple stuff this week -- ^M00:00:31 [ Thump ] ^M00:00:32 [ Beep ] ^M00:00:36 I can't win with you. ^M00:00:37 [ Thump ] ^M00:00:44 [ Crying ] ^M00:00:46 Okay. There are three similar monitors, so we're just going to do one video. Okay. Today, we're taking a look at the 23-inch Acer H233H, the 24-inch H243H, and the 24-inch D240H. I'll be using the D240H as my lovely assistant today. The monitors are all 16-9, each including a glossy, black bezel, and a foot stand with blue highlights. Unfortunately, none of the monitors' screen heights are adjustable, and there isn't a screen rotation or pivot option for portrait mode. Their capability to tilt back 15 degrees is the only ergonomic feature. Connection options include one HDMI, one DVI, and a single VGA port. In a rare move by a monitor vendor, Acer includes cables for all three connections, as well as the audio cable for the built in speakers. Also, on the back are four holes for mounting the display to a wall, Visa-style. On the left side of the D240H is a USB [inaudible] port, an SD card reader, and a compact flash slot. The OSD for all three monitors include five presets and controls for brightness, contrast, and color temperature, and the option to change to red, green, and blue values separately. While watching movies, the monitors perform roughly the same, however, the H243H had a noticeable green tint that was not apparent on the other two Acers. Games showed fairly identical performance as well, with a pretty accurate color representation and no signs of input lag. However, their performance was not as good as the Samsung XL2370. Also, the H243H tends to severely over saturate colors in this graphics preset. In power consumption, yearly, the Acer D240H would cost about $11.50 per year, the H233H would cost $12.00, the H243H, $10.50, and the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370, $10.00 per year to run. Other than a couple of feature differences and their prices, all three monitor designs are identical. The D240H includes two USB ports, a compact flash reader, and an SD card reader, none of which the other two have. They all include, DVI, VGA, and HDMI, but also have the required cables for each connection. The displays have built in speakers and perform decent to well when playing games and watching movies. The D249H can cost as low as $290.00, about $50.00 more than the H243H, and $80.00 more than the H233H. Once again, this is Eric Franklin, and this has been a First Look at the Acer H233H, the H243H, and the D240H. ^M00:03:38 [ Music ] ^M00:03:42 [ Beep ] ^M00:03:43 I can't win with you. ^M00:03:45 [ Laughter ] ^E00:03:48
