The current display market is an interesting place where there’s currently a blurring of the lines between professional and enthusiasts products. Both consumer niches typically want to avoid the picture quality sacrifices integrated into lower quality TN-based panels and companies have begun to listen. In essence, these are finicky and fickle customers who are hard to please since they know precisely what they want, how much they are willing to pay and base their purchasing decisions solely on the overall value of a monitor. Acer’s latest entry into this highly competitive marketplace is the 24” B243PWL, a monitor that is firmly targeted towards professionals…but that doesn’t necessarily mean enthusiasts and gamers shout ignore it.
The Acer B243PWL is a reasonably priced, 24” 16:10 / 1920 x 1200 IPS-based monitor that’s been designed from the ground up to cater to the business consumer’s needs. In the past we have looked at a handful of business orientated displays and while some were extremely impressive, others were less so. The trick to succeeding in this product space is to incorporate a wide ranging feature set with ease of use and acceptable performance.
Many of the monitors we mentioned above also used IPS panels with LED backlighting and the B243PWL is no different. The reason for this is straightforward: CCFL backlighting is on its way out and LED-based IPS panels are gaining market dominance due to their combination of excellent performance and low power consumption. LED designs also boast simplified engineering sp prices have also declined for manufacturers and end users alike.
