The market for displays continues to flow, and while there hasn't been a noticeable upsurge in demand in years, there hasn't been too great a decline either, so new monitors come out all the time, like now.

Acer is the company behind the existence of the H6 Series H226HQL and H236HL personal computer monitors.

Measuring 21.5 inches (H226HQL) and 23 inches (H236HL) in diagonal, they both have Full HD support, meaning that the native resolution is of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This much was a given really. For that matter, the viewing angles of up to 178 degrees were easy enough to guess as well.

While there was a time when displays with narrower angles were commonplace, nowadays it isn't all that acceptable for them to have restricted visibility, not when wide angles can inexpensively be provided (IPS panels are used).

That leaves the dynamic contrast ratio as the one uncanny feature: 100,000,000:1. It makes sure all images are clear.

DCR ensures clear, crisp pictures during low-light scenes, especially when the room where the monitor is located is dark. A nice boon during gameplay or film viewing.

Furthermore, the Acer eColor Management tool enables image and performance optimization.

Other specifications include three video inputs on each H6 display (HDMI, VGA and DVI), integrated speakers and a stand with tilt support (-5 to 15 degrees).

Finally, Acer chose a "zero frame" construction, which means a frame of just 0.08 inches. Good for multi-monitor setups like AMD EyeFinity.

Finally, the magnetic surface on the stand lets buyers post notes or store paper clips on it.

"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."
