REVIEW: Acer T230Hbmid
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
The Acer T230H is one of the first LCD monitors which are equipped for new Multitouch control in Windows 7. The touch-sensitive monitor has a glossy 23-inchy TN panel with 16.7 million colours and a Full HD-enabled resolution of 1.920 x 1.080 Pixel.
The two millisecond response time indicated (grey to grey) is very attractive for gamers, whilst the Full-HD resolution, 16:9 widescreen format and the dynamic contrast ratio of 80,000:1 indicate good characteristics for video playback. The maximum brightness of 300 cd/m² should be sufficient for almost any lighting conditions. The digital HDMI input supports the playback of copy-protected media via HDCP. In addition, the T230H contains two integrated 1,5 watt speakers.
For the test, the Acer T230H was run on the DVI output of an ATI Radeon HD 4350. The calibration was carried out using an Eye-One display 2 from X-Rite and iColor 3.5 from Quato as well as HCFR Colorimeter were used as software. As a player device for Blu-Ray discs, a Samsung BD-P1580 was connected with the monitor via HDMI cable.
The Acer T230H comes in a large box that is 28 cm deep; compact 24-inch monitor packaging generally manages with a depth of 14 cm. The box, which weighs almost 10 Kg, can be transported using its plastic handle. Inside the packaging is a large piece of Styrofoam in which the monitor, the separate base and the accessories provided are packaged securely. The surface of the panel is protected with an additional foam sheet and the glossy base is completely covered with a thin protective sheet. The cables included are packed individually in plastic bags, and these are not small in number: power consumption, HDMI, DVI, VGA, USB, audio – here, the proper cable is provided for any connection on the monitor.
The range of accessories is complete.
Once the monitor is unpacked, the base must first be connected with the pre-mounted arm – only then can the monitor be set up. The stylish base in black glossy look is impressive in terms of its design and its weight. The connection of the base is also not the conventional plastic snap-in solution: a die cast bayonet connection is connected to the also very stable stand pillar with a short twist and secured using a knurled head screw.
