Ferrari F-20 20" LCD Monitor

 

Sports cars don't impress me, but Acer's Ferrari F-20 does. This 20-inch-diagonal wide-screen monitor looks gorgeous and sleek, and its display quality is quite high. More impressive still: You get all this for a low price of $470.

Excellent image quality Eye-catching design

User must install DVI input

All in all, the Acer Ferrari F-20 is a sweet little machine. Its crisp, colorful screen images and its design panache would be tempting even at a higher price--but as of 5/18/06, it sold for a competitive price of $470. At that price, this 20-inch...

This monitor is part of the Ferrari series. This monitor doesn't have a bad display at 800:1 and a response time of 8ms. It comes with 5W speakers and it is shiny and sporty looking. If you like shiny red sports cars, you may want to have this monitor...

Acer Ferrari F-20

 

The Acer Ferrari F-20 is impressive. This 20 inch widescreen monitor looks gorgeous and sleek, and its display quality is quite high.

Attractive design, Good text reproduction, Excellent graphics performance

Some odd design choices

The Acer Ferrari F-20 is a sweet display with crisp, colorful images and design panache.

Acer F-20

 

Acer's partnership with Ferrari has produced some quality laptops over the past few years. Now the firms are adding a little glamour to the world of flat-panels.

We thought the F-20 would be a high-concept case of style over substance, but we were pleased to be proved wrong. Obviously it's not to everyone's taste, and it does carry a big price tag, but this is a quality purchase that won't disappoint.

Acer F-20

 

Capitalising on Acer's relationship with the Ferrari Formula One team, the F-20 is a top-notch widescreen LCD monitor that is equally well suited to gamers, office workers, and even those looking to watch DVDs on a PC.

Clear, consistent, accurate image ; DVI and VGA inputs

No TV Tuner ; Red and black design may not appeal to all

Given the generous screen real estate and outstanding picture quality, we can't help but feel this monitor should ship with a TV tuner. It could then do double duty in a lounge room, which would be a significant bonus given the AU$1499 asking price....

A superb screen that excelled in our tests, but you can get the same performance for less.

low power

 

Very Very Light! Lighter than some of my textbooks for sure. 2 lamps instead of 4 which saves power. They are perfectly bright enough. I have a dell 1800fp sitting right next to it, 18 inch 4:3 screen. I watch videos on the dell while doing work and...

I ordered this on walmart to spend my gift cards. Why I selected this monitor over all the others: 18.9Watts maximum power usage. I measured this with a Killa-watt power meter which registered 20Watts, nominal considering a +/- rounded number from .9...

Supplied DVI and VGA cables are extremely flimsy and thin. Cost savings I would presume. Teal Acer logo every time the monitor is resumed from power off state or from standby. Not that much of a problem ; Box came with a Windows driver disk that allows...

Outstanding Monitor

 

If you've been wanting a red monitor to complement your rig, this one is definitely a great buy. Slightly dated now in 08', but still a STUNNING monitor and worth every penny.

Best looking gloss monitor on the market, bar none. Very high quality gloss, could pass for CRT 'glass' look any day of the week. The paint and finish on the stand are excellent and the controls for the monitor are intuitive and easy to use. Up and...
