Acer KN242HYL Black 23.8

Pros: I cannot fairly evaluate any pros for this monitor because it is so dim. The price was very good for an ips monitor, had it worked as expected.

Cons: I really wanted to keep this monitor because the reviews were mostly good and the price was good for an ips. However, the monitor I received was extremely dim. It is much dimmer than my other monitors, and even my laptop screen is much, much brighter, clearer, and has better color than this monitor (and my laptop is not an expensive model). The blue tints were extremely dull at 100%, so to compensate, I had to adjust the red and green down from 100% significantly, which caused the brightness to decrease even more. Once adjusted the color was OK, but the display was way too dim, even with the brightness and contrast adjusted to give max brightness. I had intended this as a gift and fortunately I tested it before wrapping, as I would have been embarrassed for the recipient to have used it. It is supposed to be 250cd/m2, but it is way dimmer than other monitors and TVs that have less brightness than that. The speakers really are terrible sounding. That would have been OK because I just needed some sound instead of hooking up separate speakers; these would not have been used for music. But still, I was surprised at the low volume and poor quality; much worse than my laptop (and again, my laptop is not an expensive model).

Other Thoughts: All I can figure based on reviews indicating overall good picture quality is that this monitor being so dim and having such poor color quality, is that this one must be a lemon. I adjusted it literally for hours and hours before giving up, thinking I might have missed something, but at this point I am sure I did not.

Pros: none that I can figure out since it doesn't hook up to my Belkin

Cons: I couldn't find any info before I bought this on what exactly it does or how it is hooked up. But I took a chance for a low price, and figured once I got the instructions I would make it work. A chance I shouldn't have taken. NO instructions - none! It says in the item description compatible with 2X3 or 3X3 routers. What the heck is a 2x3 or 3x3 router, never heard that terminology. My Belkin router has 2 antennas, that don't come off, so I apparently it isn't compatible. Wish it had some instructions so I could at least know how it is supposed to work.
