REVIEW: Acer B223W Part 4
The Acer B223W is one of the few 22-inch models to offer a pivot function.
A cable routing solution is located on the back of the monitor and helps make the usual mess of cables a little tidier. It is easy to mount the Acer B223W on a wall, since the base comes with a VESA100 fixture and can be removed completely.
Despite its low power consumption, the Acer B223W has relatively large ventilation slots.
The sides of the exterior contain a large number of large ventilation slots which ensure adequate ventilation. If you are afraid of insects finding their way inside the monitor in the summer, you can reduce the risk of this happening considerably using an insect mesh and another light source in the room.
The power LED glows a discreet blue when the monitor is in use. In energy saving mode, the LED glows orange.
After it is switched on, the Acer B223W functions absolutely silently. Even the integrated power unit remains inconspicuous, even if test images with difficult contrasts are displayed.
Happily, the Acer B223W remains under the values provided by the manufacturer in every situation when it comes to power consumption. Even at a maximum brightness, the model is content with just 42 watts.
One helpful feature of the model is the integrated power switch, since it is often not possible to achieve power consumption of 0 watts with the normal power button. In this case, however, it is already possible to achieve this goal by simply switching the monitor off with the power button.
