? Another month. Another 24-inch display. Hi I'm Eric Franklin from CNET.com and today we're looking at he Acer 241w 24-inch display. ? This is the 5th 24-incher we've looked at this year although we'd rank it at #4 (out of the five we've reviewed), it's a close fourth and the display still does some things better than its higher ranked competitors. ? For example it has a very high brightness. In fact, its brightness score was the highest we've yet seen for any display. This high brightness however comes at a cost. The display has trouble reproducing any deep blacks. Also, its color depth leaves something to be desired as the colors are drab and don't really have any kind of "pop"! ? Aesthetically speaking the Acer has a pleasing look thanks to its unique bezel design, which features a number of slopes and dips that make it stand out from other displays. ? The OSD navigation takes a little getting used, but the buttons themselves give a satisfying snap when pressed. ? We looked at a few DVD's as well as World of Warcraft. Although it's 1920x1200 resolution allowed it to create a sharp picture in games and movies, the color were still washed in each. ? You can get this display for as low as $380, if you're looking for a display capable of a very high brightness and you mind sacrificing color depth and black level, we can easily recommend the Acer. It has HDMI, VGA and DVI connections which most users will be satisfied with. If money however is not an issue we still recommend the Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP. It has many more connections and a better performance.
The Acer AL1951B offers good performance and a few extra features that make it tough to beat for the price.
The Acer H23H has good overall performance but can't quite compare with its contemporary in value.
The Acer TravelMate 3200 hits the mainstream business market dead center, delivering performance and features in a portable, well-priced package.
Its beautiful looks and loads of connection options barely overshadow its lackluster color performance and low black levels when watching movies.
We take a First Look at three similar Acers, each with good performance and prices that won't break the bank.
Acer's budget-priced 11-incher's bigger and better than your average Netbook, but not quite as good as more premium alternatives. Its ample hard drive space and video-streaming finesse could make the difference for back-to-schoolers.
You'll probably decide pretty quickly whether you like the Acer Aspire Predator's looks. Those in favor will also find a higher-end gaming PC with reasonably fast performance and plenty of room to expand and upgrade. Not everyone will appreciate the Predator's visual charms, but we recommend this PC to those who do.
The Belkin Wireless-G Travel Router combines great design and support, a low price, and decent performance, making it an obvious choice for business travelers who need Wi-Fi connectivity.
Deep black levels and a new antiglare screen make the 50-inch TH-50PX77U one of the top choices among plasma HDTVs.
The Sentia's decent set of features can't make up for its subpar performance and high price; we recommend looking at a different thin-and-light laptop.
