The response time is rated at 5ms, while the refresh rate is rated at 75Hz. This configuration makes it ideal for watching movies, and even light gaming if required. Physically, the display is encased in a glossy black bezel. Video inputs include one VGA port and one DVI port with HDCP for DRM-protected content. Users without desktop speakers will likely find the integrated 1 watt speakers useful when required by applications or media. For the energy conscious, users will be glad to know the Acer P205H uses 28 watts of power, and less than 1 watt when idle.
