An affordable gaming monitor with premium specs? Does such a thing exist? It sure does, and it’s the Acer FX240H gaming monitor. This monitor isn’t just great for gamers; it’s perfect for any heavy computer user. Read on to find out about the technology behind this monitor, and then enter this contest for a chance to win an Acer FX240H gaming monitor of your very own!

A sight for sore eyes

As someone who rarely games, it has never occurred to me that I might need a gaming monitor. After all, I spend most of my time either writing, designing, or aimlessly scrolling the web, not raiding tombs, stealing cars, or slaying undead opponents. Oh, how wrong I was.

You see, even if you’re not a gamer, you can still appreciate any technology that minimizes eye fatigue during long hours of staring at a screen. Many of us spend our day behind a computer at work only to go home for more quality screen time. Acer has thoughtfully equipped the Acer FX240H monitor with several features that help prevent that uncomfortable feeling of dry, tired eyes.

EyeProtect reduces eye strain, Flicker-less technology helps to eliminate annoying screen flicker, and the Blue Light Filter reduces your exposure to damaging blue light. It also has ComfyView technology which reduces the amount of light being reflected on your screen, so you won’t be moving around or squinting to avoid screen glare.

The screen can rotate from horizontal to portrait, which is ideal for programmers or media producers who like to like the option of working in both modes. The FX240H also promotes good sitting posture, adjusting vertically up to 5 inches, and tilting from -5 degrees to thirty-five degrees, so you don’t have to crane your neck for the best view of the screen.

Gamers rejoice

If you are a gamer, you’ll be pleased to find that the budget-friendly FX240H boasts outstanding specs under the hood. Blogger Steven Hill tested out this monitor recently, and he was a big fan. You can read his review and watch his video here:

Featuring Full HD 1080p resolution, the FX240H monitor boasts a 1ms response time and a 144hz refresh rate, making blur a thing of the past. It’s also AMD FreeSync-enabled which does away with image tears and choppiness, so you can play without broken frames. And built-in speakers mean you don’t have to connect an external set to enjoy immersive audio, whether it’s the in-game sound effects or that jazz playlist you like to play in the background while you work.

In conclusion, you don’t have to be an avid gamer to appreciate this monitor. The FX240H has something to enhance your time in front of the screen whether you’re a semi-pro gamer, graphic designer, web developer, or just a casual user who likes to stay up to date with the the best tech in the market.

  1. If you’re not imagining playing CoD BO4 on this monitor you’re crazy! The game looks great normally, imagine looking at it on this beauty

  2. I would like to get this monitor because mine is old and isn’t even in HD… I would like to play at Battlefield 5 on this monitor because I never played one game of these game series (I’ m a tad new to the pc world 🙂 ). Yet I think it would be great because of the high refresh rate this monitor has. Plus I can imagine this monitor is really color accurate so using photoshop on it would be awesome 🙂 And if I don’t win well I’ll be happy for the winner that’ll get this 🙂

  3. at the age of 7 (I’m 28 now) I was already exposed into every piece of technology from consoles to pentium I computers, most of the time my parents left me at home to play video games and most of time I enjoyed every piece of games i played from super mario bros, duck hunt from nes and transitioned to playstation and from consoles I started playing PC games. The first PC game I played was Diablo and Red alert and to tell you I’m really proud to have experienced every game Blizzard, westwood studios, and bethesda, etc. has ever produced. So, i can really say that I am a gamer and up to today I am still playing games like DOTA2, hearthstone, LOL, CS GO, NBA2k19, and lots more! i hope to win this monitor because the thing i haven’t yet had is having 2 monitors at home and this one would be a delight for me if i ever win this!

  4. I love playing videogames since I was a little kid! Now I share it with my friends and people I meet online through twitch! I wish to have a second monitor to improve my gaming and sharing experience as the one I own is really small and cheap.

  5. I am very happy to announce the winner of this Acer gaming monitor:

    Rustem A. – Vancouver, BC

  7. Bitdefender Total Security Bonus Edition (PC/Android/iOS) – 5 User – 3 Year would be nice to have to protect our private information.

  8. This monitor would be perfect to use with Adobe Lightroom 6 Platinum. Photography is a hobby of mine, this monitor would be great to have to make the most use of this software.

  9. Call of Duty Black Ops 4. It is pretty much tradition at this point. I have been playing these games since they first come out. Which prolly started with the game Battlefield 1942.

  10. I actually plan to use the monitor for my fighting games (Street Fighter, Guilty Gear, etc), and my retro consoles (SNES mini, PS2)

  11. I would choose to play Call of Duty Black Ops 4. Having played the first two black ops on xbox 360 and thoroughly enjoying it, I imagine playing this game on a computer with this Acer monitor will be a whole new experience!
