Acer H6 Series Monitors Launch in the US

Acer America is now offering its H6 Series LED-backlit displays to consumers in the United States. Svelte and savvy, the new monitors feature near zero frame construction for elegant aesthetics as well as seamless visuals when using multiple monitors simultaneously, including video walls.

Acer's newest monitors are available in two sizes - 21.5-inch (H226HQL) and 23-inch (H236HL). Both models have Full 1080p HD IPS panels, which provide consistent and accurate color performance from wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees. They can also tilt from -5 to 15-degrees, so users can adjust them for the most comfortable fit.

"Our new Acer H Series displays are the ideal all-around monitors due to their flexibility, Full HD resolution and excellent viewing angles," said Chris White, senior director of product marketing for Acer America. "They offer users the ability to display content with viewing angles as wide as 178 degrees, which makes them ideal for collaborating with others. Plus, the near zero frame construction is perfect for use in multi-monitor setups and video walls."

Boundary-Free Visuals

Featuring a 'zero frame' construction, the H6 Series displays sport a very thin .08-inch frame versus the thicker ones typically seen on displays. This clever design provides seamless visuals when building video walls consisting of multiple monitors placed side-by-side and/or on top of each other. A stylish brushed hairline finish has aesthetic appeal and a magnetic surface allows users to post notes and store paper clips directly on the stand.

A crisp 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio provides a very high level of clarity and a fast 5 ms response time contributes to sharp images even during game play. The Acer eColor Management tool lets users optimize image performance under different viewing scenarios. The new displays also come with built-in speakers and multiple digital connectivity options, including HDMI, DVI and VGA.

Pricing and Availability

The new Acer H6 Series displays are now available at leading retailers in the U.S. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the 21.5-inch Acer H226HQL display is $149.99 and the MSRP for the 23-inch Acer H236HL display is $179.99. Like all Acer displays, the Acer H6 Series feature a standard three-year warranty and will be available at leading retailers in the U.S.

23 inch IPS at that price point is pretty good, any chance of a review!?

Hmm, doesn't look like a 2mm frame in the pics, more like 10 or 12?

I thought at first they meant the depth, bit when they talk about seamless video walls that does not make sense. Odd. Maybe the wrong pics associated with the press release (again!).

The marketing department are struggling to come up with ideas to sell this. Obviously not quite good enough on technical merit alone.

Now here's an idea for you lame PR guys: inbuilt coffee cup holder, an inbuilt ashtray, a post-it note dispenser, an inbuilt pencil sharpener, a swivel vanity mirror...

Good grief. How silly.

Hmm, no mention of VESA mounts, at the price they could be great for eyefinity/3dsurround.

I am in doubt about its success when comparing it with competitors.

I own the 23" model and I am very impressed with it so far. Edge to edge glass gives the impression of no bezel but there is a thin bezel around. Came with dvi, hdmi, and vga cables which I think was great. Stand is fairly sturdy and viewing angles are great! Oh and no VESA mount.
