acer_x243wbdAcer‘s X243wbd is a value 24″ LCD monitor sporting a 1920 x 1200 pixel format. The X243wbd sports a TN (Twisted Nematic) TFT LCD which makes it more affordable than PVA or IPS equipped LCD monitors. Of course there are tradeoffs: with TN you generally get faster response times. In the case of the X243wbd the response time is 5ms, not too fast but not too slow either. The viewing angles somewhat limited to 160/160: just make sure to sit in the middle when in a group watching 1080p HD content via the DVI connection. PVA or IPS equipped monitors tend to have better viewing angles of 178/178 and are the better choice if good color fidelity is a must for you. The brightness of 400 cd/m2 is extremely bright for a monitor and you will most likely have to tune it down a bit. The Acer X243Wbd looks to be a solid value for a 24″ LCD monitor.
