With the recent leap in the field of PC games, gaming enthusiasts have set aside their consoles to look for the softer gameplay that a PC offers. In addition to the intense gaming experience, monitors also promise to be a superior multimedia entertainment medium. Talking about excellence here is a cost-effective ACER H236HL review that may put an end to the gamer’s quest for the best gaming monitor.
The 23-inch Acer H6 Series IPS Widescreen display shows all the details clearly and without color differences from any viewing angle. Its zero frame design sets no boundaries for your visual enjoyment, while the brushed hair base fits any environment and even has a magnetic paper clip base.
With Full HD resolution and a superior contrast ratio of 100 million: 1, you get accurate images for viewing photos, browsing the web, and also making it easy to view documents side by side. It also supports VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs so you can easily enhance power and enjoyment from your smartphone or tablet with a full HD display. In addition, this screen has energy saving technologies to save costs and resources.
The Acer H236HL has a stunning 23-inch screen that extends to the edges. Although not borderless, it can still offer a great visual experience. It weighs in at 7.9 pounds, which is the same weight as most 23 inches on the market, with a sleek, magnetic base for solid installation.
The zero-frame structure and glossy display cover show the H236HL to the big leagues due to the wonderful color contrasts and overall entertainment experience.
Hardware and technology
The H236HL has a sharp contrast ratio of one million to one for advanced and accurate images. The 1920×1080 pixel density creates a smooth screen that delivers clear visual content. Acer eColor management tool makes it easier to change brightness and contrast settings for adjustable image quality. It also has a faster 60Hz refresh rate to provide a virtually zero-latency viewing experience.
A 1080p LCD screen that works with sleek in-screen switching offers the same visual performance in all possible viewing angles. Unlike most monitors that show the color ratio when the screen is tilted, H236HL liquid molecules are more efficient than preventing any color differences in different perspectives.
It also has a faster response rate of 5 milliseconds, which frees it from any input delays.
This skillful performance also makes you have a very mental gameplay. The H236HL has energy-saving capabilities that can help save power and reduce the extra costs incurred when the device is in standby mode.
Connection and input
These days, when transportation is easy, information is rarely stored in one place alone. Conversely, most people carry their favorite music or premium video games with them wherever they go. That is why, thanks to the latest technological advances, it is now much easier to transfer this data to mobile phones, tablets or other portable devices.
One of the advantages of this type of data transfer is that the output can be achieved in different ways, just by allowing people to connect through standardized connection modes. Equipped with the latest VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs, the Acer H236 excels at this, as it allows users to enjoy Full HD content on their smartphone or tablet in minutes. Therefore, entertainment is gaining strength and expanding accordingly.
Finally, it is due to the inclusion of energy-saving technologies that costs and resources can be significantly reduced. Learn more about these features via the button at the bottom of this review.
Fully optimized image quality
A handful of screens can provide a crisp, clear image, as described in each Acer H236HL review. Equipped with IPS display, this monitor is able to show all the details clearly and unambiguously without making any color difference regardless of the viewing angle.
The zero frame design of this page does not set any boundaries for the visual pleasure of the users, while the brushed hair base is suitable for any environment and even has a magnetic paper clip base. With Full HD resolution and a superior contrast ratio of 100 million: 1, you can achieve accurate images that are useful for viewing photos, browsing the web, and also making viewing documents side by side not only easier, but also more enjoyable.
The gameplay is highly optimized due to the inclusion of Rapid Response Time 5ms feature, which reduces transition time deviations to provide high quality animated images and comprehensive graphics to your movies and games.
In terms of detail, the 23-inch full HD display delivers great detail with stunning 1920 x 1080 resolution, making it great for HD productivity and multimedia applications. The sleek design of the zero frame creates a unique borderless visual experience that is ideal for building video walls with two or more monitors side by side. A magnetic base with a brushed hairline is a useful aid for paper clips, thus keeping the desktop space clean.
What can be improved?
Sophisticated user interface
The Acer H236HL has a sophisticated user interface. The menu system is unnecessarily more complex than most monitors on the market. The IPS-enabled LCD screen displays those beautiful colors and images, but even a slight change in brightness or contrast is a task in itself. This can make the whole setup or personalization annoying.
Poor port placement
This monitor has a lot of connection modules to ensure that it is always ready to connect, whether watching movies or playing games. However, the ports are located at right angles to the top of the monitor navigation cables. There is no space to hide these items, which makes them look relatively messy. With rooftop ports, placing a mobile device on a stand requires a good cable, which adds to the user’s misery.
Although the H236HL comes with a magnetic paper clip holder, contrary to what Acer claims, its base is far from solid. This causes the whole system to feel shaky and uncertain.
The screen is finished with a glossy touch. This may cause the light to be used in bright rooms.
