Guide Review - Acer H235H 23-inch LCD Computer Monitor
Jul 30 2009 - At a list price of $220, the Acer H235H is very affordable option for those looking at a high resolution display capable of 1080p resolutions. It wouldn't be surprising to see prices dip just below $200 from merchants shortly after its initial release.
The great part of the 23-inch panel on the Acer H235H was its color. After getting the monitor setup and turned on, the color on the screen was very vibrant if a tad bit too bright. After calibrating the monitor, there was no noticeable change in the color and the brightness was dialed back a bit. This is very surprising from a TN based panel that tend to have a lower color gamut. It still isn't highly recommended for graphics professional because of the 72% NTSC color gamut but highly recommend for general consumer use.
The Acer H235H can be used with a wide variety of video connectors including HDMI, DVI and VGA. It is nice to see Acer include all the relevant cables to use with each of the different video connectors. Many companies will leave out one or more of these cables to cut down their costs slighlty.
Acer makes a big deal about their new touch sensitive controls for the H235H panel. They are very nice and hide well when not in use. The problem is that the on screen menus for navigating the controls requires too many levels of navigation that make it difficult to use.
While the H235H does not feature any peripheral ports like many larger monitors, it does incorporate speakers into the bezel. The downside is that these speakers perform very poorly even compared to many laptop speakers. They are quite weak and lack any sort of bass response.
