London, 16th July 2010 – Bringing PC users innovative products and technology is part of Acer DNA. Now, the Taiwanese Company has enriched its display product range with the attractive S1 display series, an absolute first combining LED technology with the slimmest profiles in the market of only 13mm!

Designed from scratch to combine an eye-catching design with excellent video graphic performance, this series is a real jewel, including innovative display technologies to deliver crisp and clear images. High resolution (HD, HD+ or Full HD depending on the model), exceptional contrast ratio (12,000,000:1) and 5ms response time make these displays extremely versatile and performing, especially when viewing moving images.

Available in four format sizes – 58 cm (23”), 55 cm (21”), 51 cm (20”) and 47 cm (18.5”) – the new models stand out for their eye-catching design and ultra-slim profile, ranging from only 13mm for the S191HQL and the S221HQL to less than 15mm for the S231HL model. With clean lines, a polished black bezel and graceful glossy foot stand, the S1 series is the perfect blend of ultra slim, sophistication and style.

The S1 displays ensure easy connectivity to home entertainment devices and office peripherals via a VGA port; a DVI[1] port with HDCP protection ensuring full enjoyment of DRM-protected content; an optional HDMI™ port[2] providing advanced digital connectivity enabling outstanding high-definition viewing and best quality uncompressed video currently available.

In line with Acer constant efforts to design products with lower environmental impact, all S1 models are integrating LED backlight technology, a technology that does not contain hazardous substances such as mercury or halogen gases and compared to a traditional lamp can reduce power consumption up to 68%. This translates to big savings, while preserving nature’s energy resources.

Acer S1 series also addresses environmental issues via the EcoDisplay campaign, a logo that indicates low environmental impact. Acer EcoDisplays are compliant with the most stringent international standards such as, EnergyStar 5.0 and the new ISO 9241-307 certifying high quality service, lower power consumption and environmentally friendly materials. Acer EcoDisplays are also free of hazardous substances, such as PVC and BFR, in casing, printed circuits laminates, connectors and internal cables, for both system and panel.

Acer S1 series monitors feature cutting-edge display technologies to give users the best viewing experience.

Acer eColor Management technology adapts the performance of the panel to different environments, light conditions and viewing preferences enabling users to fine-tune the display settings by redefining the colour precision according to the work mode: data, media, cinema or images.

Acer Adaptive Contrast Management (ACM) dynamically adjusts the contrast ratio to achieve ultra-sharp images. Each scene is analysed to fine-tune images frame by frame and enhance colour quality, obtaining a dramatic improvement of gradation and detail, especially in dimmer and brighter scenes.

Acer eDisplay Management is a powerful tool enabling advanced colour calibration and display management. Each personalized setting can be stored and quickly recalled for different applications and light conditions.

The Acer S1 display series comes with a 3-year RTB warranty.

The Acer S1 series are available now with SRRP’s (inc VAT) from: S191HQL - £119.99, S201HL – £129.99, S221HQL - £159.99 and S231HL - £169.99
