The Acer S211HL is a mid-range 21.5" HD computer monitor similar to the Acer S201HL. Boasting support for full 1080p video (and therefore a native resolution of 1920 x 1080) to make up for its larger screen size, the S211HL is a sizable step up from the S201HL in terms of HD performance. However, the S211HL and S201HL otherwise sport the same features, namely 16.7 million colours, LED backlighting and a 5ms response time.
The S211HL's 16.7 million colours provide it with a richer picture capable of producing more true-to-life colours than monitors with less supported colours. Its LED backlighting provides the S211HL with a dynamic contrast ratio of 12,000,000:1, allowing for much deeper blacks and brighter whites than LCD screens with older types of backlighting. Additionally, the S211HL's 5ms response time greatly reduces ghosting and blurring that can occur during fast action scenes, making it ideal for video game use.
