Great workplace monitor 3/27/2020 9:23:15 AM

Pros: images are sharp and bright
lightweight

Cons: none

Overall Review: I bought this monitor based on my experience with a smaller acer monitor that I've had for years that has served me well. The monitor is light and slim and fits well on my desktop. Colors are bright and sharp. For regular day to day use, you can't beat this monitor especially at this price.

Better Than Expected - Don't Be Fooled By Old Reviews 1/20/2020 6:16:52 PM

Pros: - Affordable price
- More contrast and vibrancy than I expected at this price point

Cons: - Acer's model numbering scheme makes it more difficult than it should be to know exactly which monitor you're buying

Overall Review: Acer has actually had at least three (and probably more) different displays over the last 10+ years that have all been marked "K242HQL". The subtle difference is in the letters that follow - this version is 'BID', previous versions have included 'BBID' and 'CBID'. The version Newegg is selling on this page wasn't available before August 2019, so you can be sure reviews on other sites that predate that are referring to a different K242HQL. As for the monitor itself, I bought two of them to use as secondary monitors on two workstations used for graphic design and photo editing. For the price, I was looking for something capable of web browsing and reading emails while doing 'real' work on the existing (older, but significantly more expensive) monitors - I was surprised to find that, once calibrated, it likely could've served as a replacement. The color depth and accuracy is more than comparable, and the viewing angle is sufficient even for an offset second monitor. I'm kind of shocked considering how affordable it is.

To answer a few questions I had after being confused by the many variations of K242HQL, this version has three inputs - VGA, DVI, and HDMI. It uses a standard power cable (no adapters or bricks). There's no speakers. It does have VESA mounting holes (this was an important point, because one of the desks has monitor arms and no room for the footprint of a freestanding monitor; I didn't see any clarification one way or the other on this product page). Neither of the ones I got had any defects or dead pixels.

Overall, I'm very pleased with them - if our primary monitors died tomorrow I'd seriously consider ordering two more of these.
