Beautiful

 

I really want to give it 5 eggs, but the backlight bleed out of the box was the worst I have ever seen out of the 20 or so monitors I have owned in the past 10 years. Coil whine only worries me a little bit, as the warranty period is enough to keep me...

Beautiful picture ; Colors look amazing out of the box(to my untrained eye) ; Picked this up for tree tweny and that helps a ton

Backlight bleed (still not 100% gone even after adjusting) ; Coil whine here and there (randomly around 4 times in the past week or so that I have had it.)

Great Monitor, Lousy Stand

 

Great Screen! When I plugged it in, the colors and text were way off due to my Mac using the wrong color space. But after applying the fix, everything looked great! The colors seem to be pretty accurate (haven't calibrated it yet), and the text is...

My one major complaint about this monitor is the cheap-o stand. Every other IPS-type display I've seen has a stand that offers height adjustment (and probably rotation, although I don't care much about that one). The stand on this is fixed in place,...

Unbeatable price @ 1440P

 

If you're looking at 1440P gaming monitors and you're on a budget, this is what you should get. It won't disappoint you, I'll most likely buy 2 more in the near future.

Plenty of inputs ; Perfect size for gaming ; 1440P makes gaming stunning ; Unbeatable price ; Beautiful colors ; No dead pixels ; No light bleed ; Meets all of my expectations

None, worth every penny

Mac compatibility issues

 

The fix for the compatibility issue involves running Ruby scripts and messing around with files in system folders, so it could be confusing to non-technical users. If you're looking for an external display for your Mac, and you're NOT comfortable using...

Nice display at a extra-nice price

When I first plugged this into my Macbook Pro (via a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter), I could not believe how ugly it looked. Colors were washed out and fonts looked blurry. it looked nothing the 27" Dell monitor that I use at work with the...

Nice Monitor, Bad Audio

 

Mostly recommended for people just looking for a larger, higher-resolution monitor at a good price.

So far this is giving me a nice 1440p picture. I had to switch to the included DVI-D dual link cable from the old single link cable I was using previously to get a good picture. I was mostly looking for more screen real estate when I bought this, and...

Speakers are quiet and have a terrible frequency response. I used the built-in speakers on my old Acer H233H primarily as I found they were good enough quality for most things I did, but these ones are quite terrible. The loudspeaker on my phone sounds...

Very nice monitor

 

The picture lag is noticeable, so this may not be the best gamer's monitor. Perfect for my work with static photographs. Good to watch movies as well. I didn't like the stand it came with and buying the VESA mount now. Had to make the size of the text...

Beautiful 2560x1440 resolution. Large screen. Crisp picture. Very bright. No apparent light bleeding (you need special software to see it is not perfect)

The power consumption advertised by Acer (33W) is a "typical" value. I had to set brightness to 20% to get close to this. Normally, it uses >50W. Sound is bad as expected (had to set speakers to zero) ; No ambient light sensor to control brightness

Great budget 1440p monitor

 

After configuring the monitors I ended up keeping them and I enjoy gaming on one while having web/video playing on the other monitor. I upgraded from a single 1080P so the difference is amazing and considering I got these for $350/each on sale I don't...

The monitors look great in a bright room. The menu is easy to understand and quick to use. There are plenty of inputs. I use my PC(Displayport) and PS4(HDMI)

Light bleed from the sides of both monitors. I put two of these next to a budget BenQ GW2450 and the Acer blacks where noticeably brighter

Good Monitor for a Great Price

 

Great price for a 2560 x 1440 resolution monitor. Works fine for my dual monitor setup

Actually wish I had bought 2

Excellent Value

 

Great deal at 349.99 (during recent discount deal). I will buy a second when it comes back to that price.

1440p ; Low Price from well known Brand ; Simple Clean Design ; Connection Options ; No Dead Pixels

Light Leaks - Lower Right Side corner, noticable when displaying blacks
