If you’re looking for an all-around powerful screen, Acer may have just what you need: the new Acer B243PWL. The name isn’t fancy, but the 1080p IPS display certainly is. Acer has built this screen specifically for education, government and large business installations.
Although a 24-inch screen isn’t groundbreaking in size, the components inside set it apart from the standard monitor. The IPS technology (the same style popularized by the iPad) makes Acer’s new monitor allows for an 178 degree viewing angle, making it ideal for setups where a monitor must be swiveled, turned and constantly moved throughout the day. Hospital imaging equipment or multimedia carts are a good fit. Plus, VGA, HDMI and DisplayPort connections ensure nearly all devices have connectivity to the screen.
In the governmental space, Acer sees the monitor as a perfect complement to a “big-brother”-style multi-monitor setup. If that has you feeling uneasy, the B243PWL has a few other uses, too. Thanks to the high quality LED-backlit display, these monitors are also great for photography and design specialists who demand high quality color reproduction. As an added bonus, Acer integrated a set of speakers and USB hub for touch of added functionality.
Digital signage VARs may want to give this monitor a close look. 24-inch screens are ideal for showcasing food menu items, movie times and airline gates. With a 1920 x 1200 resolution, on-screen content looks crystal clear and the IPS style display gives it considerable “pop.” Topping it all off, the display meets EPEAT Gold certifications, making it as energy efficient as it is sexy. Any vertically oriented VAR should have no problem dropping high-quality monitors into a packaged solution. Even POS VARs can add these monitors to checkout registers, self-checkout units or in-store advertising.
Resellers can get their hands on the shiny new B243PWL now, which clocks in at $329, making it very affordable for its size and class.
