Acer P243W 24 inch Widescreen Review

» Discuss this article (6)


Overall, I was very impressed with how the Acer P243W 24" Widescreen monitor displayed my games, video, OS, and applications. Everything was so crystal clear, and the colors were all very vibrant and sharp. I cannot even begin to describe how phenomenal Windows Vista looks on this monitor. The new OS looks so clear, and now it's evident to me why this unit boasts about being Windows Vista Certified. No operating system, even Windows Vista, has looked this clear on any other monitor that I've ever owned. At first, 24 inches did seem a little bit large, but after using it for a while, I definitely have become accustomed to the big screen and I certainly will never downgrade. One specification that gamers look for in a monitor is the response time, and lower numbers are more desired. This particular monitor has a 2ms response time, which is the fastest response time on any monitor that I've ever owned! A while back, I did some research and found that a lot of the larger monitors have higher response times due to their size. This Acer P243W is one of four monitors on Newegg to have a 24" screen, and a response time of 2ms! Now that I've used a widescreen monitor, I'm never going back - everything from gaming to videos looks so much better, and I have really become a fan widescreen monitors since using this one. One of the only downsides that I can think of for this monitor is that the included software disc includes no software that allows you to modify the monitor's settings. Also, this monitor doesn't have a headphone jack or any speakers on it, so for some people, that could be a con. If you are looking to really spice up your gaming, enjoy all the eye candy that Windows Vista offers, or just enjoy your videos more - do yourself a favor and pick up the Acer P243W 24" Widescreen monitor, because you will be blown away by everything this crystal-clear beauty has to offer.
