WOO HOO! finnaly something i've been looking for

 

I've had no problems with it and i find it real easy on my eyes. I've used some monitors before that make my eyes go all fuzzy but not this one! I love it and let's just say for example if a robber ever broke into my house and stole it i would go out...

good screen resolution

can't find any

Highly recommend

 

Unlike my HP PC desktop, This monitor has had no problems.It is now 9 months old.Easy to view with sharp resolution. A great buy for the money. Only draw back are semi-confusing controls for screen adjustment.

Bright ,clear screen

I have found no serous flaws

Consumer review by:

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

Cat hates it because she cant sleep on it like the old dinosaur it replaces

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

Consumer review by:

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

Consumer review by:

Great Monitor

 

I <3 this monitor

Great monitor. It does everything i need it to Call of Duty 4 works like im in the game. Its just a great monitor overall

the stand took a bit of messing w/ to get in all the way but its not worth losing an egg over

Consumer review by:

GOOD-

 

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
