The Acer G205H Special Edition is a mid-grade 20" LCD monitor designed for high definition gaming and cinema applications. The G205H Special Edition is an extension of the standard G205H model; the SE model is fully endorsed by the Olympic Games and is equipped with several minor device upgrades. Upgrades for the SE model include two integrated 1W speakers, and a unique Empowering key to launch eColor management and eDisplay management Acer monitor applications.

A unique 50000:1 dynamic contrast ratio combined with a 5ms total response time ensures the G205H SE provides what Acer claims to be "crisp and clear" image quality. The G205H SE supports a maximum resolution of 1600x900 and a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz all displayed over a 16:9 wide aspect ratio. The Acer G205H SE also includes what Acer claims to be a "chic" pointed silver bezel and "aviation inspired" base complimented by an exterior black matte body finish to provide a  stylish overall design.

The Acer G205H Special Edition model includes additional features and specifications such as 170° horizontal and 160° vertical viewing angle, a 250 cd/m brightness rating, a 0.276mm pixel pitch, an adjustable (tilting) stand, VGA and DVI (HDCP) output, Kensington lock support, VESA wall mount compatibility, and Energy Star compliance (MPR II ).
