    Sharp and good contrast

    By Muirtty

    from San Juan Capistrano

    Comments about Acer S220HQL Abd 21.5" Ultra Slim LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

    I bought two of these monitors operating as dual screens on a win 7 system. One operates as a digital through an HDMI port and the other as an analogue through a VGA port. The clarity and definition on both are very good.

      I wanted a low cost monitor to upgrade an older computer. This Acer unit filled the need at a very attractive cost. It's very lightweight and thin. While I wouldn't recommend the monitor for serious photo and video editing, for other uses it is great!

                I am a CAD designer and use a dual-screen setup. I recently started at a new job and needed to buy a new monitor right off the bat, then a few months later a second. The Acer is economical and looks as good as my more expensive units at home. It's got a very wide format, which works great for multi-tasking, and the adjustment controls are easily accessed under the bottom edge of the monitor frame. So far, I've no complaints. Great monitor, great price, and B&H got it here in two days right before Christmas.

                          Comments about Acer S220HQL Abd 21.5" Ultra Slim LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

                          I purchase my first Led monitor ViewSonic VA2231w-LED from B & H while already owning an Acer flat screen monitor until the backlight went out just recently. Comparing them side by side, the ViewSonic's picture quality was light years better than my Acer. I have to say the same for the comparison of S220HQL 21.5" Ultra Slim LED Monitor by Acer side by side with the ViewSonic VA2231w-LED.The improvement on the contrast makes a huge difference not only in clarity of the but the depth as well. This is by far the best monitor out their in this category considering the price and quality picture. All this, while saving on the power consumption as well. The monitor itself is lightweight due to an outside power supply. There are things to consider here that other consumers need to know.
                          1. There is no HDMI connector for a HD signal cable receiver
                          2. This Monitor is not design for Wall mount.
                          3. Since the power supply is outside the monitor, a stand computer cord cannot be used.
                          4. While the tilt on the monitor is OK the stand has a fixed height.

                          This does not really bother me at all, though it could be a problem for some consumers. For my use it is the best bang for the cost.

                          Sincerely,

                          The Invisible Man

                              This is mainly used for a budget gaming PC I built. This is one of the most lightest, aesthetically pleasing monitors I was looking it. It weighs ~ 4 lbs and it was at a good price ~119 for a 21.5 inch. Out of the box, it has nice presets for energy saver, graphics, ,movies,standard, and custom. The LED makes it nice and bright. The only thing I didn't like was the buttons take a bit to get used to. There is no height adjustability on this, only tilt.

                                  We use this 21.5" monitor as an accessory for Acer 11.5" netbook. Lacks an HDMI outlet even though it is referred to in the manual. Adjustments are hidden on bottom with no visible indicators. No speakers. Works as expected and at the price, is a good value. Delivered free and fast (received 5 days from odering online)

                                          The only problem I had with this was setting the base up. I put the sleeve on the wrong way (and it easily went on the wrong way) and it got stuck, once I was able to get it off, set up went very well. Pretty much a plug and play with the dvd they sent along with it. It looks great! For set up, you just had to familiarize yourself with where the buttons are and what they do. Once you figured that out, it was easy to adjust it to "my style". The only and I mean ONLY thing I do not particularly like is the splash screen that comes up every time you turn this on. You get the ACER splash, then the energy saver splash and then a couple of blips at the top right about how its attached via HDMI, etc. ... While it is mildly annoying it doesnt sway me from using it either!I have this set up in a room where there is light exposure each way you turn it, there is no getting around it. The screen easy to read and doesnt give you glare. They do warn you not to expose the screen to direct sunlight, I dont do that but its nice that the light that does filter in doesnt affect what I am looking at on the screen.All in all, I like it. It is awesome for graphics!! I WOULD tell my friends about it. The price was awesome too!

                                              not the biggest monitor in the office but the picure quality is good and the price was favorable.
