For the most part, I'm really loving this era of 16:9 LCD computer monitors. The fact that we can get a 21.5- or 23-inch monitor with a resolution of 1,920x1,080, can't be a bad thing since previously monitors of those sizes would have topped out at 1,680x1,050 in 16:10. While I have a little something to say about 20-inchers with 16:9, for the most part I'm happy.
Today, Acer continues the trend of giving us more pixels by announcing the Acer H235H. It's a 23-inch LCD computer monitor with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1,920x1,080 resolution.
According to Acer, the monitor includes a 2ms response time, 300 cd/m2 brightness and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio. That last number can mostly likely be attributed to its dynamic contrast ratio however.
The display features Acer's SensorTouch technology. Which shuns buttons in favor of a touch-sensitive space on the monitors bezel used to control the On Screen Display. Not anything new really as other monitors have done this, but judging by the picture, the lack of buttons does allow the Acer to maintain a clean, sleek look.
Connection options include VGA, DVI, and HDMI. Also, Acer includes two built-in speakers, and judging from the narrow 160-degree viewing angle quoted in their press release, the panel type is most likely a TN, since they are known for having narrow viewing angles.
Acer says the H235H will be available in July for a MSRP of $239.99. Look for a full review soon after they send me a unit. In the meantime, you can check out all our monitor reviews here.
