Consumer review by:

Acer AL1917ABMD


It did work well for 8 years. Remembering it was not on all that time. I did think I would get more use out of it.

Worked well

When it quit, it died

Consumer review by:



They are discontinuing this model, but it might be for the best considering the problems it is having. The speakers won't blow you away, but that is expected of built-in speakers. They are good for group environments though.

Price, DVI and D-Sub, wide, tilt, pleasant design, speakers

About two years ago when I started buying this model, the price was excellent. Now other brands have surpased this model in price-to-performance. Bought around 100 of these for work in two batches a year apart. The last batch has quality issues. I can...

Excellent Value


In my opinion, this monitor is an incredible value for the price. Perhaps of my own ignorance, I was relunctant to purchase this brand, but I have been pleasantly surprised. I'm definitely an Acer fan now. (Note: soon after purchase, the monitor...

Bright, crisp picture. Widescreen, 19" monitor for a great price. (And in my case, no dead or stuck pixels.)

No swivel, tilt, or height adjustment functions

A Fine Monitor


Excellent. No problems. A fine basic monitor. I own two

I normally keep it on 24/7. Some days when working with other computers I constantly unplug/replug it. And it's been just fine. I don't use the built in speakers as I prefer a separate set I have.

I've never had an issue with it. Works as it should, great display

No headphone jack - but no big deal

Consumer review by:

Not good


I would never buy these again.

The ones that work seem quite nice

We purchased 14 of these units at my place of business (did not get at newegg). Of the 14 units, only three arrived without dead pixels. You do the math...14 units and 11 with at least one dead pixel and up to 8 dead pixels

Great LCD monitor


I had this monitor for 6 months. Nice bright dead pixel. I do not use the speakers, so I cant comment on it. Highly recommend it for those looking for a reliable LCD


Consumer review by:

Very satisfied!


Now I want bigger ones.

I bought 2 of these in June 07, and after getting used to the widescreen, I love them. Fast, no dead px, crystal clear and bright. With black peripherals they make for a very sexy desktop, if you're into that. Which of course I'm not.....there very...

Had a little problem with the display text, but after downloading the drivers from Acer - it was a beautiful thing. Res needs to be 1400x900 and they mean it

Acer AL1917CBMD Black 19" 5ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers


Newegg shipping cannot be beat.

Good picture, sharp and clear, with no ghosting and no dead pixels. This is my third Acer monitor, and none of them has had dead pixels of defects

I didn't plan to use the speakers, but if anyone does, there will be lack of volume issues

Consumer review by:

Top Notch Video


Not one dead pixle! This is my second time buying an Acer and this time I got 2 - Acer 19" (Wide) flat panel and they are as good as the first.
