Features & Stand

Acer XF240H by Deepinthesky Teslastorm, on Flickr

The Acer XF240H supports AMD Free-Sync (Displayport only; 48-144hz range), come with fully adjustable stand, and is made of sturdy matte plastic which while not a dust magnet, can be stained by cheeto fingers and Monster Zero Ultra.  The Acer's plastic bezel is a medium shade of grey which vastly increases the perceived black depth compared to a fake frame-less casings inner black bezel, and glossy black bezels.  The Acer has Displayport (Free-Sync + 144hz support), Dual-Link DVI (120z support), HDMI (60hz support), 2w speakers and a 3.5mm Audio In and Out ports.  Cables for all of the connections are included, and the monitor does not have an external power supply.  I did not see any obvious build quality or adjustment flaws, or find issues with the buttons, or the Menu system which is simple to use, as well as responds quickly.

PC Monitors Review features a more detailed analysis of the build quality, including adjustment measurements.

The Viewsonic XG2402 supports AMD Free-Sync (Displayport only; 48-144hz range), comes with a fully adjustable stand, and is made of sturdy matte black plastic which is also not immune to greasy finger and energy drink stains.  The XG2401 is a downgrade bezel wise versus the XG2401 since the XG2402's black bezel reduces the perceived black depth or contrast compared to the Acer XF240H and Viewsonic XG2401's medium grey bezels.  The Viewsonic has Displayport (Free-Sync + 144hz support), HDMI 1.4 (60hz), HDMI 2.0 (144hz support), 2x2w speakers, a 3.5mm Audio and 2x USB 3.0.  I did find any build quality issues, but the bezel came dirty, and the Menu system is filled with duplicate settings in different menus, as well as poorly organized.
