Fine while it works

 

Bought on sale, need to stop falling for this trap.

Good picture while operational

First one I ordered a little more than a year ago died before a month of use. RMA'd for the current one back in January 2010, but it's now having power issues and isn't turning on

Nice monitor!

 

My only concern was with the listing, where I couldn't find out exactly what kind of DVI cable I would need. So I waited till it got here before going out to buy one. Imagine my surprise and pleasure upon opening the shipping box to find the unit comes...

Good looking! Nice sturdy attractive stand. Great widescreen aspect ratio and was as easy to set up as "plug it in and turn it on" It came with software that I haven't even felt the need to install yet. For my system it worked great right out of the...

Sits a little low on the desk compared to the CRT monitor it replaced. I think it's just a matter of getting use to it. It does adjust angle up to help with this

Garbage For Sell

 

Don't buy this product unless you are really ready to eat the cost in the event that it fails.

It was cheap - I guess you get what you pay for

Half the time this monitor will not turn on - very frustrating. I have only owned this monitor for about 6 weeks and conveniently this started happening just after my 30day RMA window closed. I buy a lot of stuff from Newegg and I think it's...

Roll the dice

 

My last monitor lasted 7 years, this one lasted 3 months, won't be buying another discount special. Roll the dice if you're feeling lucky, it was a great bargain while it was working, but I tried my chances and lost.

Dirt cheap (cost), looked great when it worked, fit perfectly in my desk

Dirt cheap (construction), the control buttons started strobing within days, I'd be gaming along and suddenly the monitor menu button would decide it had been pressed and blocked the center of the screen for ~10 seconds or until i could get it to...

Broken after 1 month

 

Spend a little extra for a better brand like Samsung, it will save you the hassle down the line.

Great value for the price, decent picture

Within the first 2 weeks, the monitor first started having issues from turning back on from standby mode. The light would stay orange even though the PC resumed outputting a monitor signal ; Within about a month, the monitor stopped turning on...

Consumer review by:

Eh

 

I think if I'm lucky they'll have me RMA it. Which puts me in an awkward position because the money I will have to spend figuring out a way to ship it and actually ship it would have paid for the difference between this acer and a higher, more quality,...

Nice crisp and clear monitor. Wasn't very expensive. The stand seems very sturdy. Design is sleek

Well only one ; The adjustments panel is flickering every so often and every once in a great while it will randomly bring up the menu. I'm contacting acer support about it right now but I doubt there is some quick fix that will fix the issue

Acer P224Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 10000:1 (ACM)

 

My son used to sell Acer products and told me they stand behind their products and are a good bang for the buck.

Easy setup - nice looking - like the settings for text, graphics and movies - great viewing quatlity and price

None so far, if any in the future I'll review it again

Consumer review by:

Great Buy!

 

I can't give it the full 5 eggs because i had to RMA one, but the second one i have had for over 3 months and not a single problem. If you have more money to shell out go for another with more ports and higher resolution otherwise this is perfect for...

It has a great picture, sets right at eye level on my desk, and there is almost no difference in color from different angles. Gloss may be considered a flaw due to glare from picture but i like it's sleek look. The stand is stable there is no wobble at...

I actually had to RMA the first one i received about 12-15 dead pixels appeared only after a couple of days of use. Was inconvenient but Newegg was extremely cooperative and helped me get a new one in 3 days. Not enough inputs

Consumer review by:

Worth the $$$

none for the price

Consumer review by:

Good value purchase at sale price

 

Interface was different when compared to other mfr's/models.

Nice monitor, no dead pixels. Decent contrast. Bought as second monitor for docked laptop. I may even switch this one with my Desktop monitor

None
