Excellent Product


Again, another product I buy continually as a part of any systems I put together for home or office. This is number 10 with no dead pixels, no RMA's. No complaints from customers.

Small footprint...yet remains stable on the desk. Good color, good clarity, excellent quality

Acer AL1706Ab Black 17" 8ms LCD Monitor 270 cd/m2 500:1


I'm now looking at upgrading the rest of my computer, since my video card and processor have a hard time of keeping up with the computing requirements of the larger resolution when running games.

crisp, clear images. Old screen was no longer in focus, so everything was fuzzy. Easy to setup, no complaints

none to speak of

10+ and still working great


A thoughtful feature on acer's part is the serial and model number can be accessed from inside the interface on the monitor, so no more spinning the thing around and hopeing that the cables have enough slack on them. -over all this monitor is a solid 5/5-

We place our most recent order a little over a week ago, all 10 arrived on time and the boxes were in mint condition just like if we had purchaced them at a retail store

A minor inconvience is the snap on stand. It takes some forcing to get it to be securely snapped in, however going at it one side at a time never fails

Good monitor, no "extras"


I haven't used the color matching features yet. It seems to be a little harder than other monitors to get the colors "just right" when you do things by hand. The pixels are fairly small, which may be good or bad depending on your preference.

High quality monitor for the price; sharp, bright display. Very easy to setup. The box it's shipped in has a handle for easy carrying

You don't get any "extras". If you operate at a non-recommended resolution, the display will be stretched (there's no "cropping" mode) so make sure your video card supports 1280x1024. The enclosed stand is cheap plastic, it can only tilt, and the tilt...

Acer AL1706Ab Black 17" 8ms LCD Monitor 270 cd/m2 500:1


I'd recommend this monitor to anybody looking for a decent low cost product. I own four now and am looking to buy a fifth.

Very good inexpensive monitor. This is my fourth one of this brand and size. I use them as a second monitor to my widescreens. Great for application multitasking. Or just great as a stand alone monitor for a child's system

No cons

It was bright when turned on 1st time. I set it to "Gaming" mode, and adjusted the brightness a little from there. I could not get the "User" mode to look as nice as gaming mode, but it doesn't matter---it turns on and looks great now!!!

NICE color. anti reflective screen (not shiny). LOTS of settings and options--easy to use. no dead pixels

none- other than I had to use channel-lock pliers to snap on the base...that fixed it !---Oh and box was beat up and torn tape, but no issues or dead pixels

Great Deal


If you need a good basic SVGA monitor this is it. I bought this for a customer and he is well pleased.

Super monitor works well in DOS environment as well as in the GUI

Not bad, not great


Not a bad monitor for the price. I bought it for an economical gaming computer for my wife. She'll think it looks great and thats all that matters, right? I would recommend for a econ gaming comp or a simple word processor.

Very inexpensive, well packaged, no dead pixels

Cheap feeling plastic bezel. Colors take quite a bit of customizing to get to look good. Auto set doesn't hack it
