At A Glance

The 242HL's price and specs may be attractive, but its mediocre on-screen performance should have shoppers looking elsewhere.

Manufacturer’s Description

Acer S2 Series monitors deliver world-leading slim designs of 13mm. The glossy black finish of the S242HL is specially complemented by a round black base encircled by a transparent, double-injection frame, creating an eye-catching effect that makes the large screen appear to float. Special attention is paid not only to providing the slimmest outline, but also to eco-friendliness. Hence, S2 Series monitors use white LED technology, making them attractive and powerful, as well as energy-efficient.
