Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good features and price

 

No major complaints. Works as advertised so far.

I was looking for a somewhat small decent looking monitor for light use in the office that didn't look like it belonged in a living room or something. With straight lines, physical buttons and sturdy stand this fits the bill. Pros: -Price -Height...

-I did notice a bit of graininess which I didn't expect for a panel this small at 1080p. It wasn't that bad but was noticeable when compared to a much older and larger 1080p Samsung monitor. I'm kind of nitpicking though. -I'm really not sure why they...

Great Product when it works

 

I ordered two of these monitors for a two monitor setup with my PC. One of them came in and works flawlessly. However the other one displayed a heavy green hue over the image. I tried all the settings to no avail. I am now on my fourth total monitor,...

-Display port -USB connectivity -High Resolution -Cheap Price -Newegg customer support

-The quality control at ACER is horrible.

Nice work monitor

 

Easy to swivel, tilt, pivot - adjust every way imaginable (got it just for this reason - to fit in a tight desk); Very solid sturdy base, and lightweight and thin screen

none I can see so far

good business monitor

 

Not a gaming monitor, but very good for business, text editing, etc, which is what I use it for. Monitors in general seem to be getting better and better-each new monitor that I get seems better than the last-but I was particularly impressed with the...

Sharp text. Heavy, very stable stand. Great height adjustment and swivel. DisplayPort

Specs say it has built-in speakers, and it has an audio input and on-screen volume adjustment, BUT I could not get any sound out of it, nor even find the speakers! If they are there at all, they are very well hidden, and not plug-and-play. Since I...

Great for coding in portrait mode

 

I haven't tried the speakers, so I can't speak to the quality of those.

My work bought this for me and some other developers here as a second monitor. I primarily use it in portrait mode to have multiple tabs open in my code editor. For this purpose, it works very well! The base allows for a really good range of motion,...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

I bought this monitor so I could have a vertical monitor to look at documents while I play games/write code. As a primary monitor it probably wouldn't be great but for my purposes it does exactly what I need at a low cost

Consumer review (newegg.com)

These are some good monitors

 

They are adjustable in every direction. They have simple cable management. And they are very reliable. So far I have purchased 10 of these monitors and have had no hiccups. I have also purchased the next size up and they also have been just as...

None about the monitors, which is why I gave it five eggs. But if you get these with any kind of physical defect from the factory, don't expect them to replace it. Luckily if you catch it pretty quick, and are a premier member newegg will replace it no...
