Nice, but...


Probably just bad luck with the specific monitor I received. I still recommend Acer monitors as I have had mostly very good experiences with them.

5ms response, very crisp picture

Came shipped with a dead pixel. :( First monitor I've received from Newegg to have one at all, and it is pretty disappointing that I can't return it because there's less than 8 dead pixels

was at my work till the building burned and it had smoke dmg and wouldn't work so i brought it home pulled apart(very difficult to put together) and cleaned all the smoke dmg off connections, it worked after that, its fallen several time of varying...

worked for a long time, and survived several falls, and more(read other thoughts) bright screen and clear compared to my old cathode monitor

Great monitor


could use a tilt function, but that's not really important.

This monitor works great. It's bright, turns on quickly, has no dead pixels, and plays games beautifully

Over 50 Installed, no problems


I've installed over 50 Acer monitors in the office so far and have yet to have a failure, not even a dead pixel. Price is right and quality excellent

Good for the Price


Have 2 set up in my office for work and internet. They are very clear and bright using the DVI cables. If you need a decent monitor and want all cables included, get these!

Arrived on time, not damaged. Easy to unpack and set up. All cables included

Leaks light from the top and bottom of screen. Not bad for internet and everyday use, but wouldn't recommend if you like to watch widescreen DVD's or play games that have lots of dark areas

No major complains!


Why don't they make more sturdy monitors like the benq's ^^ haven't hand any problems with my other 19" Widescreen Benq. no wobbles but worse on visuals.

Beautiful color/contrast. very clear picture and great with games. no dead pixels

Wobbly. i have 4 rambunctious kids and it's kinda annoying to try to type or read when the screen wobbles back and forth

great monitor, great price


great monitor. bright, responsive, low footprint, all the right cables are in the box. what more can you expect for under $200

once you clip on the base, you can't easily get it back off in the event you want to put it back into the box for shipping

Short term


The 6 I replaced were on 24/7 but they still should not have failed. I am going to try a new brand.

Good price and great picture quality

Short life cycle. I purchased 9 of these monitors for use in our plant and have had to replace 6 of them
