Great monitor for the price.


Comes with power brick. I'd personally prefer a fatter monitor body than a power brick, but that's neither here or there.

Very affordable ; Does what it needs ; Easy setup and came with the cables it needed

Lower end ACER monitors tend to be a little washed looking

Not good for your eyes


I don't understand how people can find similar problems with the monitor and still rate this more than two eggs. This monitor is only suitable for intermittent use. It gets two eggs because at this price not much is to be expected and it still works.

Low price ; Assumed low power consumption due to LED backlighting

Bad vertical viewing angle and lack of monitor height and angle adjustment make this monitor very hard to use for more than a an hour or two at a time. Anything longer than this will cause serious eye strain

Get it pointed straight at you and mess with the contrast some and it's a good monitor for it's price range. If you want an actual nice display, this isn't a good purchase. Girlfriend is running a dual monitor setup with these, she likes it. She's...

Cheap-ish, colors are decent. They are quite slim and I don't see any backlight bleeding. Does good with motion in games

Stands point monitor almost at a downward angle. You'll need to shove stuff under the front feet stands. This goes bad in tandem with it's somewhat poor viewing angle. If you're not picking about that kind of thing it shouldn't bother you. But having...

Good budget monitor.


It was a little brighter than what I liked at default, so I lowered the gamma a bit, and it was looking good. I was in the market for a monitor where performance and price meet in the middle, and this monitor fits the bill.

No dead pixels. Came with all the cables needed for VGA and DVI ; Very easy to mount to the stand, and get it up and running ; Three year warranty is excellent too ; For 89 shipped I think I got a lot of bang for the buck

Vertical viewing angle could be a tad better, but I am usually sitting when viewing the monitor, so it don't really matter to me at the price point I paid

It's okay.


22inch ; On sale for 90 bucks ; Acer brand

No hdmi ; The screen light is stronger than what i'm used to. Other than that, not much i can say. It's a good monitor still

Alright monitor


Picked this monitor up when it was on sale, and for the most part I'm pleased with it. Especially with how fast it takes to turn on

I had a couple small problems with these monitors. Once I turned off my pc the monitor would start making this coil whine which is pretty unusual. It's not loud enough to be a deal break but it is audible in a medium sized room. Other than that I wish...

Not great


Cheap, nice design

Be warned this monitor uses a TN (Twisted Nematic) display. Great at movement, but terrible at viewing angles and color reproduction ; This one seems worse then most TN displays so be warned

clear screen


The monito works as expected and it was a good buy. It arrived in 4 working days using the standard delivery method

No problems

Originally bought it at $160, would not buy again for that price - there are similar monitors at a similar price with more features. Would consider buying it again if it went on sale and I was on a tight budget.

Matte screen cuts down on glare ; Inexpensive

Bezel is fairly large ; Plastic body feels flimsy ; Not VESA mount compatible ; Backlight bleeding around edges of screen after a few months ; Power light on the front seems brighter than the sun in a dark room (I put black electrical tape over it) ;...
