REVIEW: Acer G24 Part 15
Although the Acer G24 is primarily a gamer monitor, it is also excellent for use as an office monitor thanks to its considerable size. Two Word documents can be displayed side by side without difficulty. Two browser windows or a browser window and a Word document also find sufficient space on the 24-inch screen.
Beside the Word document, there is space for a browser window and an Instant Messenger window.
A large amount of screen space is essential for Flash and video processing, for example: colour palettes and image editing tools can be accommodated on the 1.920 x 1.200 pixels without leaving a shortage of space for the image material.
Adobe After Effects requires a lot of space. The Acer G24 offers enough space.
The 24-inch model is a good option for users who need a large amount of screen space but would like to do without multi-screen use. The G24 is only suitable to a limited extent for multi-monitor use, since the frame is too broad at 2,5 cm.
A 24-inch LCD monitor, as a central multimedia display, is suitable for use with DVD, Blu-ray and TV as well as with the PC. Thanks to the HDMI input, digital, high-resolutuion images can be played back.
This means that the gamer monitor is also of interest for console gamers. Naturally, the Acer G24 is lacking video processors and signal processors such as those used in modern LCD TVs and can therefore not offer a flawless image.
Excerpt from DVD "Star Wars Episode III".
DVD playback is acceptable. Despite the high glossy colour intensity, the image does not look fake. The black value of the monitor is just mediocre, which can be seen in dark scenes.
Because of the glossy surface of the panel, video material appears crystal clear. However, the elegantly shining panel reflects the entire surroundings when the lighting is bright, which is really irritating when you are watching a film. The room should therefore be darkened as much as possible. A very high brightness – the G24 manages up to 486 cd/m² - at least reduces reflections.
Scene from the Dreamworks film "Kung Fu Panda" in 720p.
With HD-ready material (720p), the Acer G24 makes a very good impression. The depth of detail and also the colour intensity are a good bit more extensive compared with a DVD or television image.
Thanks to the fine pixel structure of 0.270 mm, Blu-rays can also be enjoyed from a short distance. The image is especially brilliant for FullHD material in 1080p. Was can be seen in the picture below, individual particles and parts of debris which are thrown into the air by an explosion can be recognised in sharp detail despite fast movements.
Excerpt from the trailer for the film "Body of Lies ", which comes to German cinemas at the end of November (1080p).
