A killer display shouldn’t require sweet spot. Whether you’re working or sharing that image with others, it doesn’t make sense to have viewers huddle into one area. At least, it doesn’t make sense to Acer.
That’s why the company just launched the Acer B243PWL, a new 24-inch ergonomic display. The hook on this new monitor is that it includes IPS technology, which boasts wide angle viewing and color saturation. No sweet spot is needed.
That IPS technology also means that the B243PWL has uniform color temperature. Every point delivers consistent imagery, whether it’s viewed at 60 or 178 degrees—horizontally and/or vertically.
Designed for use alone, in multi-monitor setups, or for swiveling and pivoting, the B243PWL features DisplayPort, VGA and DVI (w/HDCP) connections, as well as a USB hub. Other features include a 1920 x 1200 WUXGA resolution, a 60Hz refresh rate, and a 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio. It also comes packing Acer’s own eColor Management tool, so users can optimize image performance at the touch of a button.
One other nice perk is that the B243PWL is EPEAT Gold registered, which means it’s made of mercury-free materials and uses mostly recyclable packaging materials. It’s also LED-backlit, so it should soak up about 68 percent less power than standard CCFL-backlit displays.
Shipping now with a standard 3-year warranty, the B243PWL starts at $329.
