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


It seems that F-20 used to contain a MVA LCD panel with 176 degree view angles and true color (16.7 millions). I bought a new F-20 with MVA specificatioins(manufactured in January, 20008) from newegg in November, 2008. Surprisingly, this turned to be a...

A beautiful look, Glossy screen with sharp text

New F-20 monitors use 6-bit TN LCD panels with narrower view angles and not true color

PC Connection is absolutely the best web-site. Not only are they low cost and have great service, the overnight DHL shipping is absolutely amazing. I love the color scheme of the monitor and it matches my Acer Ferrari laptop!

Sweet looking and works great. This is the Ferrari of LCL monitors

Acer Ferrari F-20


For the user who wants the best in crisp readable text and terrific graphics rendition in a widescreen monitor the Ferrari is an excellent solution at a reasonable price. The crystalbright screen is dazzling, but if used in and environment with...

Attractively designed unit, excellent c;ear crisp readability, excellent image accuracy, brightness 7 contrast, great color rendition, excellent response times

Some users may desire more adjustability for height and/or screen pivot capability. Warranty procedures ensure huge downtime for repair/repalcement... hopefully won't need it

Acer Ferrari F-20


This is a like getting a sports car for a Toyota price, and if you like the styling the panel itself is great. (zero dead pix) The size is just right, kinda like a 19" CRT in height but 50% wider.

Sexy Styling, excellent metal base, reasonable price, very good quality panel

Still blurs slightly in games, but its minimal. Not all software/games support 1680*1050 yet

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...

Class.... Cash....


This is a good solid monitor… and looks very sharp… but ultimately fails to meet it goal of being a true enthusiast monitor… Now I purchased this monitor at its opeaning price… it has since fallen all a hundered buck… but is still about 100 over a...

This product was designed to be of gamers envy... but falls a little short ; Ok so what are the positives.. The mointor is no doubt in a class by its self... in what we can realistically call teh 19" widescreen market... Allthough it seems to find it...

Lets start with the body… the place for the HD cables isn't the greatest… but that's far from a problem… And everything about the body is really top notch, with the exception of one thing… The Ferrari emblem… Now I know you have seen people say one...
