When it comes to workplace monitors, most of them can be high end with features unneeded, bloating the price with unnecessary features. The Acer ET241Y focuses on just the essentials and delivers a monitor that is as adaptable as anyone can be. With an exceptionally adjustable stand, fantastic color accuracy, and a bezel less screen, the only thing bogging Acer\u2019s monitor down is some brightness issues and a lacking port selection. Nevertheless, the Acer ET241Y makes it into our list for Best Vertical Monitors and Best Computer Monitors.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Acer ET241Y\r\nFeaturing a full HD picture and a rapid response time the Acer ET241Y helps to achieve maximum productivity with a wide arrangement of adjustment capabilities.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Acer ET241Ybrings the best performance it can with a full hd resolution. Equipped with flicker free technology, the included 16:9 aspect ratio brings a great picture whether you use it for entertainment or productivity. Along with Acer\u2019s VisionCare Technologies, you\u2019ll be guaranteed the best picture this monitor can offer.\r\nViewing Angle\r\nThanks in part to the fantastic stand offered by Acer, the ET241Y can be adjusted to accommodate any angle. However with viewing angles of 150 degrees, that shouldn\u2019t be needed, as this monitor has a great view from anywhere you look at it.\r\nAdjustability\r\nEasily the best part of the Acer ET241Y is the stand that comes with purchase. Sturdy, versatile, and adaptive, there\u2019s no angle that Acer\u2019s stand can\u2019t adjust to. With a tilting range of 15 degrees, vertical adjustment of 3 inches, and the ability to rotate 90 degrees, the ET241Y can make for an excellent vertical monitor.\r\nDurability\r\nBy itself the Acer ET241Y\u2019s stand is surprisingly durable given the low asking price. However one feature that would have bolstered it even further seems to be missing. There is no VESA support with the Acer ET241Y. Which by itself isn't\u2019 a bad thing: the stand included is solid and durable. However those who were looking forward to mounting this monitor will be sorely disappointed. If you\u2019re looking for a mountable alternative, the BenQ PD2700Q is an excellent choice.\r\nPorts\/Expandability\r\nThe Acer ET241Y comes equipped with an HDMI, VGA, and audio port. Compared to other monitors such as the Dell UltraSharp U2515H, Acer\u2019s monitor has an obvious scarcity of ports to connect to. Even in the professional workplace,\r\nAcer ET241Y Wrap Up\r\nIn the pursuit of a budget friendly monitor, the Acer ET241Y makes a strong case for itself with its widely adjustable stand. Along with excellent color accuracy and a practically bezel less screen, the Acer ET241Y is a strong contender for those who are willing to accept the compromises that come with a $150 monitor. A lacking port selection and issues with the brightness are prevalent, but should be minor issues that anyone can get past in this excellent addition from Acer.
