For many years, Acer has had the S-series screens in the model range. Those were the screens on asymmetric aluminium feet. We were fascinated by them but unfortunately the series (except for the UltraHD model) no longer current. It would not be the first time a design would get a new breath of life, and in this article, we take the RT240Y as an example of the new life of this series. It is by all means a reasonably priced 24” monitor which you can find in our price comparison for as little at 129 pounds / 157 euros.
The RT240Y has a T-shaped metal-coloured stand with a small foot print. This and the very thin bezels (except the lower edge, which is a bit wider) gives it a very special appearance. Unfortunately, Acer and many others, do not put much effort into hiding the cables. The VGA, DVI and HDMI cables, along with the power cable, point straight out behind it.
The performance in the tests is not exactly outstanding, but this is certainly not a bad screen. The IPS panel has a somewhat larger deviation than what we would like to see, but it could also be worse. The grey-scale deviation is also not too bad, which means that the colours are quite neutral. The minimum brightness is high, so you would probably not want to sit in front of it in the dark. It would also not be our first choice for games due to the response times, but overall this is a good monitor. It is a shame that Acer does not supply a digital video cable with it, though.
