  • Lacklustre contrast ratio



Best price on junglee


What would normally be a lack-lustre monitor is worth recommending simply because it has the best price to performance ratio. This is an average monitor at an exceptional price. It’s not for the nit-picky user, but a perfect option for someone who needs a decent 24″ monitor for regular use.

The Acer S240HL is an unremarkable monitor in many respects. It’s a good monitor and not too bad in terms of aesthetics. The build quality is nothing to write home about either, but it isn’t bad. The monitor is literally a black rectangle with a compact stand and base. The stand only allows for tilting so there isn’t any swivel or any other such freedom of movement.

It’s a plain-jane 24” monitor sporting a resolution of 1920×1080. The panel is a TN one and it’s performance was also exactly as expected, strictly average. What does stand out is the fact that while the performance is average, it’s at least consistent, with the contrast ratio stubbornly sticking to the 500:1 range no matter what preset mode we tried.

Even the tests we conduct using lagom.nl proved that this screen is nothing however moderate, with the fairway, crimson, pink, yellow and white bands rendering with their ultimate two blocks merged collectively.

So why are we even recommending this display if it’s strictly reasonable? The associated fee. At Rs.10,500, discovering a bigger screen may be very exhausting and whereas that you could spend upwards of Rs.20,000 to get one thing as excellent because the BenQ XL2411T, you received’t in reality in finding it to be twice as just right despite the fact that you’re paying twice the fee. There are indubitably higher screens in the market, however that is the very best deal you can get at this worth.
