Great Monitor


I wanted a nice monitor for my son's PC which he plays games on day and night. This did the trick.


nothing fancy

Great display


Arrived quickly as always with NewEgg.

Large, bright, LCD display. No dead pixels on arrival. Menu is fairly easy to traverse and auto-adjust worked fine

Built-in speakers aren't the best, but you can rarely really expect built-in speakers to pack much of a punch

Acer AL2017 Abmd Black 20" 5ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built-in Speakers


Solid monitor, great price, and no dead pixels. I have purchased four of these units for use in an office environment and they are just great

Got mine on sale saved $$ for such a great monitor. The way to go is DVI interface much more concise.

Very clear vibrate screen graphics. I have used on both AMD systems on XPPro and Vista Buiness. As Well as my Vista Ulimate Intel 2.66 Core Duo

Great Monitor


I have used two of these, one for myself and one for my girlfriend. Hers had no pixel problems, mine only has one shot pixel. Not bad for $200. Speakers are all but useless.

Very large viewable area. Very bright (see cons). Nice color, automatically fits the image to the screen on most graphics cards. Tilts

Can be too bright if you don't adjust the brightness and gamma. Mine has one funny pixel. Sometimes when that area has a color besides white, one pixel shows up bright green. But not over my black desktop? weird. Only tilts so far

great monitor for the price.

Great contrast, color and speed. Spectacular price for the size. Great that it comes with both kinds of cables

tinny sounding very quiet speakers

Newegg is the shiznizal

Great monitor for the price. I have been using this monitor for about 3 months and have 0 dead pixs and no ghosting. Works great and I plan to get anouther soon for a dual monitor setup

Buy this - It's Awesome

Installed in a clients office, she loved it. Big, bright & clear. Highly recommended

When I asked my customer if there was anything bad she could say about the monitor, she thought for a second & said ; 1 - It's not a 72" DLP Monitor ; 2 - She can't plug her Ipod into it ; 3 - Now all of her employees want one ; 4 - She has to come to...

Not bad


now I just need 2 more and some wall mounts. Also newegg shipping was amazinly fast got the cheapest shipping possible and arrived the next day

use to have a 17 crt monitor and upgrading to a 20" really makes a difference. No dead pixels, TILTS, very bright and surprisingly it has a very good viewing angle. good enough screen resolution and has D-Sub, DVI-D connections. uses less energy...

not as bright as my crt monitor but that was expected

Consumer review by:



haven't tried the built in speakers. acer rocks, newegg rocks.

really sleek. it also has five "auto-set options" that you can select to really, really quickly adjust the brightness and contrast ratios (one for text, one for standard, one for graphics (gaming)). I use those three a whole ton, and seriously i'd pay...

a little slow to turn on (takes about a second and a half). not a big deal, but not as fast as other monitors. i find no problem with the stand
