    • A. No and Yes. Despite online research that indicated it does have an HDMI input, the S231HL monitor I bought at WalMart yesterday does not. There appears to be a difference between S231HL Bbd sold at WalMart and S231HL Bid, sold elsewhere, which does have the HDMI input on the back of the monitor. So, look closely at the model number if you want to buy the model with HDMI.

    I love this monitor! Beautiful picture right out of the box! The only nick on expectations was that I was certain that this monitor had an HDMI port (which I really need). There was space for it, but it was blocked out. The manual had a picture with the HDMI port right where the block is. It's difficult for me to return things, so I will keep it, but that was a major disappointment, but for the price (on sale- a steal!) ...I am beginning to truly appreciate ACER products, and Consumer Reports loves them, too. It does have both VGA and Digital ports, however, so the digital port will have to do for now. If you don't need an HDMI port, I can wholeheartedly recommend this full HD monitor to anyone!

    I was looking for a new monitor to replace my 5 year old Acer 20". This monitor caught my eye because it was on clearance at my local store. Because of the huge array of monitors across several price points and specifications, I decided to give it a shot. Well, I like it so much I went out and bought a second one! Now I have a fantastic setup with two monitors I don't know how I lived without. With a bit of color tweaking both on the monitor and my video card, they look fantastic. I purchased a separate, dual monitor mount and they hooked up with no problem. VESA 100mm compliant and they feel sturdy, not like they are going to break if I move them. It comes with power supply, and both VGA and DVI cables, something my old Acer lacked. Controls are very intuitive once you get the hang of what the images mean on the menu, and it is a very quick process to change settings on the monitors, so easy I could do both of them at once. CONS: I would not recommend these for any professional graphics designers, as the colors may not be that accurate. I do not have calibration equipment so I could not verify differences in color. If you think you have a color problem, check your video card first! One monitor was much more red then the other, but even after switching monitors the same side of my screen setup was still red, turns out it was just a wonky setting in my video card. If you are unable to change these settings or are unsure how, have someone who can help you to make the color as you want it.

    I love this monitor. It is light and doesn't radiate any heat and the picture reminds me of the softer pixels on the old CRT monitors. It's much easier on my eyes too. I have it hooked up to my Acer computer and am running dual monitors with a Sharp 19" LCD TV. In the past I had used a 32" Sharp Aquos LCD TV as a monitor and it was just too large and threw off a lot of heat. This "23 monitor is a perfect size for work and play. Couldn't be happier with it. The picture quality is awesome. I play Modern Warfare 2, Counter-Strike Source and Crysis 2 on high settings and they all look great and there is no degraded performance. The viewing angles are much wider on this monitor than on any LCD that I have owned. So I can lay in bed and still see the full image as opposed to sitting at just the right angle to view an LCD monitor. The price was great and I paid for it online and picked it up a couple hours later at the store down the street.

    This screen is great for accounting! It allows you to have software screen and spreadsheet up right next to each other. It's great for research too; it allows you to view a site and your paper at the same time, eliminating toggling between screens. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable widescreen monitor.

    I bought this monitor (Acer S231HL) from WalMart last week and I am happy with my purchase. The box does not say there is an HDMI connection, and the monitor does not have one. There appears to be misinformation on the WalMart website. I downgraded the 'meets expectations' but I actually don't need an HDMI monitor; video signal through DVI-D is electrically identical to HDMI, so if a monitor has no built in speakers why bother with HDMI? Image quality is good, the controls are unusual but I got used to them fast enough.

    Note, this model is the "S231HL", not "S231HL bid" that is sold everywhere else. The difference is that there is no HDMI port on this version. I don't know what other differences there might be. Besides the obvious lack of an HDMI port, I found the monitor a bit dim and the colors washed out no matter what I did. The contrast was excellent. The price is reasonable, although as I said, you can get the model with an HDMI (and what else...?) I tried to like it but realized I was just settling for a substandard screen. I returned it and replaced it with a more expensive 24' model from another manufacturer and am very happy with the replacement's brightness, color, contrast and response time. I would not buy the S231HL again.

    I walked into walmart looking to buy a 22" monitor. When i got there i was looking up reviews and noticed this one was on sale online for $149. (at the store it was $189.) I asked an associate if they would match the price on line and without any hassle, they did!! Great service lead to a great monitor. I might be more impressed then most because i had an old CRT. My main use for this is surfing the web and online gaming. - Huge size - Easy setup. Took me about 30 mins from the time i got home. - Didn't have to adjust anything. Everything looked perfect out of the box, no dead pixels and no color or brightness out of wack. - Stand is sturdy (compared to some reviews i've read) - Perfect monitor, service and price. I've only owned this monitor for a day now so hopefully with time i can still say the same thing.

    I got the last monitor in my store with a damaged box. Normally I wouldn't accept it for possible shipping damage, but I needed it to prove my acer CPU was not on the fritz...So I took it home hoping it would work as advertised... To shorten a long story, it did everything it claimed to do. My only complaint is the resolution. The monitor software likes to be set at the highest res, and I'm several feet away from my screen so reading the fine print gets tough sometimes. Besides that, this is a beautiful piece of equipment. Surprisingly light of weight, yet possesses great construction details. It's bright and very predictable in its operation... acer has a winner with this one and at the price of less that a "C" note plus one half, it's a bargain... Like with anything of a computer nature, my only question is: "how long will it last?" My last Samsung 22" LCD lasted 4 years. I'll be happy if this new acer does the same...

    I saw this on the clearance table for 95.00 at my local Walmart and stopped dead in my tracks. I noticed a crush mark on the box and figured this was the reason why. I flagged down an associate to further inquire. He said it was 'out of mod' which probably only associates understand so I asked the key questions. Can I inspect it and is it returnable and under warranty? Yes was answered to all so long story short, I felt comfortable with the purchase. At home and hooked up, I was blown away with the picture. It's so sharp and crisp, I was taken back with surprise and happiness with this model. My only qualm with this model is that they are built bright. I have the brightness as low as I can go with it and wish I had room to go even lower. I've read other reviews (on other sites) about this HDMI conundrum surrounding this model. All I can say is mine came with all it was labeled to have. It has HDMI/DVI/VGA ports. It also had included a VGA cable and a DVI cable. Outside of BluRay viewing, I'm not sure I'd spend the few extra dollars for a HDMI cable - that and upgrading my DVD reader $$. I don't think I could have a better picture than I have at the moment, regardless.

    The monitor is energy efficient, easy to install, bright and effective. It is being used for extensive writing purposes. With the wide screen I can look at a larger image and not even wear glasses. I changed the color of the background to a light tan so that it is more restful. It took a bit to get used to a wide screen but now I wouldn't be without it. I have also used it to have two things on screen at the same time Word and Excel. Works very well and can be seen well.
