Acer B223WG review

 

The Acer B223WG is a 22in monitor designed primarily for business use, and has a 1,680x1,050 resolution rather than the now popular 1,920x1,080 resolution. Windows fonts are much easier to read at the lower resolution, and you don't lose much vertical...

The B223WG has good, but not outstanding, picture quality. Its adjustable stand is a highlight, but cheaper rivals have higher resolutions and deliver better quality.

Acer B223W Notebook Upgrade Kit review

 

USB interfaces on flat-panels aren't new (Samsung, most notably, has experimented with this approach), but the concept has yet to really catch on. Install the special software and you can then connect the Acer B223W flat-panel to your notebook using a...

While the Acer B223W is a very respectable flat-panel in its own right, it’s certainly not worth £223 given that excellent 22in screens can be found for £50 less. So the question is, are the extras worth the extra? There’ll be some users who can make...

Acer B223WBydr review

 

Whether these few weaknesses put you off the B223WBydr will depend on how important the adjustable stand is. For most people, BenQ's E2200HD is a better buy. It costs £32 less and has a higher native resolution of 1,920x1,080.

Acer B223W Notebook Upgrade Kit review

 

Acer bills its latest flat-panel as a ‘notebook upgrade kit'. What this amounts to is the Acer B223W: a flat-panel with a USB interface and a wireless keyboard and mouse.

While the Acer B223W is a very respectable flat-panel in its own right, it’s certainly not worth £223 given that excellent 22in screens can be found for £50 less. So the question is, are the extras worth the extra? There’ll be some users who can make...

Trepidation

 

I will leave this at 2 eggs and pray it lasts for the period of time I needed a replacement. If it lasts I will revise the review for a higher score. The cons are not significant insofar as my particular use, meaning because I had the proper chord...

Free shipping ; Product was not DOA

Shipped in a plain cardboard box with styrofoam packaging, a power chord, and vga (not dvi) adaptar. The VGA chord screws broke immediately, just simply fell out. I guess no big deal as I used a spare DVI chord anyway. The power chord was somehow too...

Sold a Defective Product

 

It has a nice swivel base

I purchased two of these monitors, one of the monitors came with a dead backlight. I would have expected some quality control

response to 3d artist professional

 

To the 3d artist: for one.. you don't buy a anti sun glare monitor for art work. That was your mistake. You buy a high glass monitor. So to give this a bad review because your mistake is quite unhelpful. Running a 19" hp and 22 Acer and they both work...

Beautiful display for almost all users. Very nice on the eyes. Wonderful adjustment levels. A cheap and great looking and viewing monitor

Solid Monitor - Great Price

 

Buy these in large quantities with zero regrets

solid, reliable, heavy duty stand with height, swivel and tilt, built in speakers ; I bought 20 of these and haven't had a problem with a single one. The stands are so good I'm recycling them onto other monitors after mounting these onto Planar dual...

Um, I dunno. The audio in jack is colored blue and doesn't match the light green cable that comes with the monitor

Basic, But Solid Monitor

 

Buy this for your business needs. For the price this is an excellent value.

Sturdy construction and base. Decent picture and integrated speakers. Included speakers don't take up desk space or an extra power outlet ; I've ordered 50+ of these monitors and haven't had a single problem with one of them

Um, the speakers aren't going to blow down any walls, but you can hear basic computer sounds on them at a reasonable volume for the office

Good deal on a swivel/pivot monitor

 

Good size monitor for the price. I have purchased about ten of these monitors for our office and they all work great. Easy to setup, good picture. It's a solid monitor. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fully adjustable monitor

on one or two of the monitors I bought I did manage to pop the button used to unlock the height adjustment, off the back. The height adjustment was a little stiff to unlock at first. I put the button back on and have since not had issues as long as...
