Acer H235H Display
Acer on Friday extended its High Definition Series LCDs by one model and added the H235H. The 23-inch display is smaller than the older H243H but improves on its image quality: it has the same 1080p resolution but more than doubles the dynamic contrast ratio to 100,000:1 while preserving a 300cd/m2 brightness. Accordingly, it doubles as an HDTV-friendly monitor with stereo speakers and an HDMI input to go along with the DVI and VGA ports.
Like most Acer displays, the H235H uses a TN LCD panel to keep costs down and gets narrower 160-degree viewing angles in any direction in return for a faster 2ms pixel response time. It will sell for $240 when it ships to stores sometime in July.
