Acer’s DX241H Web Station

Posted in Acer by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2011

You always have your tablets and phones and laptops to use when you want to surf the web, but sometimes you want a larger viewing space and if you do, then Acer’s DX241H Web Station might be for you. It comes in both wired and wireless models.

It’s basically a 24-inch monitor. One that has a built-in browser, and will connect to the internet without being connected to a PC. But it does more than just surf the web. You can also watch movies on that 1080p display using Acer’s clear.fi software to stream video from other devices on the network. Sounds pretty sweet. Alot of screen real estate in a small space is always good.
