Acer XF240H Menu

Acer XF240H Menu

I sourced the menu photos from the official Acer XF240H manual (available online) since I did not take photos.  There's only three important settings to change, and they are the Brightness, Black Level and Gamma settings, and the Black Level and Gamma settings only need to be changed when the refresh rate is set to 144hz since the XF240H suffers from a significant gamma drop resulting in washed out colors at 144hz versus 60hz.  There's no need to change any other settings unless using a colorimeter to calibrate the monitor, or if wanting to use the gaming gimmicks such as the cross hairs. 

The Brightness (preset to 80=very bright 295.7cdm/2), and Black Level setting are in the Picture Menu:

The Gamma and Color (Red, Green and Blue) controls are in the Color Menu>Colour Temp sub menu which must be switched to User to access.

There's also a 1:1 pixel mapping setting in the Setting>Wide Mode sub menu which must be selected manually since the Full mode is the default:
