Good entry-level 144hz offering


I can really only recommend this for gamers that play twitch shooters or RTSes. The 144hz refresh rate has limited use otherwise. I don't have the equipment to try the 3D features so I didn't include that in my review.

Newer generation TN panels have less noticeable color/gamma shift at normal viewing angles, this one is no exception. Comparing it to my ~2010 monitor was like night and day. Easily the best looking TN panel I've owned even before calibrating it ;...

OSD is archaic and annoying. I have an old 22" 1680x1050 monitor from Acer and it's literally the same OSD plus the 3D features and ULMB ; Dual-link DVI is the only way to get 144hz. A displayport input would have been nice instead of the VGA input. I...

Solid Monitor


I wish I would've gone with a 27in after seeing my friend's the extra real estate is amazing and do not let others tell u 27in 1080P is pixelated. Have seen first hand unless your eyes are 6 inches from screen... If you are buying just for 144fps and...

Best buy for the price ; Play 3D game on this and you won't go back

Not 27in

Good for the money! GROOT APPROVES! (◕‿◕✿)

Good monitor, perfect size ; 144 hertz is a blessing from the sky ; 24" I love my monitors long and wide. hehe

Colors were a bit washed out, and the monitor was also bright right out the box. These were easily fixed within 10 minutes

Great Value, Minor Cons


Overall this monitor does what it needs to do, provide its user with an enjoyable viewing experience and gamin experience. While some parts of it are not exactly favorable, I do not regret my purchase, and I would recommend this product.

This monitor, while a relatively low-end 144hz monitor, has been an absolute joy to use ; It came with no dead pixels and no other defects with the panel itself, and has been very easy on the eyes while gaming ; I play mainly CS:GO and Starcraft II and...

The stand is not adjustable. You can adjust tilt, but do not expect to be moving this side-to-side or up and down ; Mine very slightly is unbalanced to the left. I unscrewed the stand, made sure nothing was wrong, and re-installed. Still slightly not...

Terrible Shipping


Don't get me wrong, I might have just had a bad model, but this is a great monitor for the price.

I ordered this monitor because it was the cheapest 144Hz monitor I could find ; So far it has worked well

The box that this monitor arrived in had many holes in it, and it looked like someone had tried to open it on one side. That was not the first issue though. When I put it together, the stand that it came with was extremely flimsy and wobbled around...

Good Gaming Monitor 144hz


I'm a gamer myself and I would rate this monitor a 4/5 for the pricing and the quality it produces!

Well I have had this for about a week now the shipping was great I was not home and they had came back on the same day when I had gotten home ; The Monitor was easy to put together, Good foam or whatever stuff inside and protects the monitor well, has...

Something I did not really like about it is just the Angle the monitor stand itself is at. It is like a little bit tilted upward so unless you have a good chair you will probably have ocd. I don't think it is very adjustable too

Screen starts flickering


Worked great for ~5 months, really wish I could have gotten some better customer service from acer regarding this problem.

This is the cheapest 120< monitor that ive found. Perfect for a FPS gamer like me. Comes from a brand I trust and for the first 5 months i've had this monitor it worked great. Flawless performance at 144hz rate and vibrant colors

This monitor started flickering on me today 5/6/15 after I bought it on 12/1/14. Every few seconds your screen will flicker and come back to normal. Its very frustrating and I feel I didn't get the most from this monitor. Customer support seems to...

No Questions, Just Buy!


First thing you do. Go to your graphics card settings and go to the change resolution and make sure you choose 1920x1080p 144hz. I actually thought it was enabled at first because i saw 144hz selected in a different screen setting so it wasnt changed....

144hz ; larger than my last screen and this one is bigger but not overwhelming ; VERY bright out of the box, with a small adjustment perfect ; colors and contrast just pop out at you ; no dead pixels ; very very very responsive ; good price tag for the...

my only one issue is that the buttons for the display to change settings have no indication of what button does what. Not really worth complaining because it takes 5 seconds to figure it out
