Acer AL1951


Acer's AL1951 offers a decent option for gaming junkies and those wanting a large LCD display in a small frame.

2ms response time ; Auto scaling ; Low power consumption ; Large viewable area

Ghosting on VGA connection ; Auto config doesn't always work well ; Some slightly washed out colours

Any monitor with a 2ms response time is a natural fit for gamers, and in this respect the AL1951 performed quite adequately in our tests; likewise as a video monitor it worked with no discernible motion blur. The inbuilt speakers won't blow you away,...

Advanced in some ways, this Acer monitor performs admirably, bar wallet performance.

Acer - AL1951A


There are plenty of Taiwanese TFT displays on the market that are dull commodity products and don't grab your attention, but the Acer AL1951A really catches the eye when you turn it on, because the picture ...

The Acer AL1951A is a far better TFT screen than you might expect for such a low price. Both its specification and design are good, but the key to this display is the highly reflective display, which presents a fabulous picture but which could also be...

Acer AL1951 LCD Monitor


Acer are perhaps not one of the big names in monitor production but they sure know how to build a mean screen.

The screen is simply gorgeous and it's hard going back to my "old" monitor after seeing this one in action. The fact that Acer quote 16.7 rather than 16.2 million colours suggests the AL1951 is a 8-bit rather than a 6-bit unit. This matters because...

Acer - AL1951


19-inch LCD monitors are rapidly becoming the standard for serious office or graphics professional use. Acer's latest device in this category, the AL1951, is a no-frills device at a good price, rather than a high-end screen ...

This is a good, general-purpose, 19-inch LCD monitor. It's easy to set-up and use, with all sockets and buttons on the base of the stand. Although the sample we saw had some annoying backlight bleed, this is probably an issue with this one unit. At the...

Excellent Monitor


Was a little skeptical to buy it with the lack of reviews, but I am glad I did and I am very happy with it. Bottom line is, if you have a CRT, upgrade to this monitor. My eyes would start to hurt on a CRT after an hour, but this screen's image is so...

Excellent Screen, Bright pictures, NO DEAD PIXELS! Excellent color repoduction, and is HUGE! Stood up to pixel persistance with flying colors

only minor things that bother me, but I am somewhat picky... The backlighting on the top is a tad dim compared to the bottom, When games are loading and you see a black screen, it is black in the middle but the top and bottom are a light black/dark...

Amazing Monitor


This is an amazing monitor. Games have no ghosting whatsoever and applications look crisp as do the colors. i would highly recommend this computer to everyone who's looking for an LCD.

Amazing sharpness of text and colors are all true. The response time blows all others I've tried out of the water, gaming is amazing. I didn't know how small my 15 inch CRT was until I got this

Not a direct power supply, it has to go through a small converter, so that's kind of annoying

Nice quality


Buy this monitor. Acer and New Egg rocks, as usual.

I love this monitor, it is clear and has no dead pixels, which seems to be standard for Acer. Very fast. I passed down my AL1714B and got this one
