Long Monitor Names

We've all seen the long and to most people, incomprehensible, names given to monitors by manufacturers but, Acer have raised the game with names like, Acer B326HULYMIIDPHZ on new models.

My monitor just has a silhouette of an apple with a bite out of it;-)

Couldn't afford a whole apple?

"What has replaced them? Certainly not TV's that's for sure."

An HDMI socket in the forehead?

What some people do not realise, is that some of these names and numbers might hold an hidden secret?.

For instance PC World and Currys (Dixon Group) sold printer's that had slightly different numbers to those available elsewhere. Yet the model appeared the same, excluding perhaps a very slight colour cosmetic change. That was the way the manufacturer and retailer knew where the item had originated from.

Years ago we bought a crate of beer in the States, very cheap, the cans just had "Beer" written on them. It was awful and even my hard drinking Service companions could not stomach it.
