chronic issue with the DVI input requires a hard reset of the monitor

The Acer S231HL is a mid-range 23" HD computer monitor similar to the Acer S211HL. Besides screen size (23" as opposed to the S211HL's 21.5"), the S231HL can only boast one feature over the S211HL: HDMI connectivity. Otherwise, the S231HL sports the same features as the S211HL, most notably: LED backlighting, 16.7 million supported colours and a 5ms response time.

The S231HL's LED backlighting provides it with a dynamic contrast ratio of 12,000,000:1, allowing for bright whites and black reproduction far deeper than traditional LCDs. Its 16.7 million supported colours provide the S231HL with colour reproduction that is nearly true-to-life, especially with high resolution images and HD video. Additionally, the S231HL's 5ms response time virtually eliminates blurring and ghosting that can occur during fast action sequences, allowing it to perform better with video games.

Features

  • 23" TFT LCD panel with white LED backlighting (1920x1080)
  • Dynamic contrast ratio: 12,000,000:1
  • Response time: 5ms
  • Maximum colours supported: 16.7 million
  • Viewing angles (H/V): 170°/160°
  • Connections: VGA, DVI, HDMI (HDCP) 
  • Energy Star 5.0 compliant
