Amazing Monitor!


For 5 years I've had the same Toshiba Satellite laptop with a 17" screen at 1366 x 768 resolution. Going from those dimensions to this monitor is still unreal to me. Games look amazing and just browsing the web is extremely enjoyable. Maybe having this...

Great PPI. Amazing size and resolution

Excellent Monitor, Does its job


All in all, for such a great price the screen performs fabulously well. I'm a guy that doesn't need all the extra jumbo that is placed on screens these days (speakers, extreme tilting and color options, touch, etc), and for this price it does one job...

Acer have managed to build a simple, solid, and thin screen for a great price. It arrived extremely fast (1 day), and it was up and running straight out of the box in less than 2 minutes. It has very nice crisp colors and decent color customizing...

When the screen is on standby, the blue blinking power light might be annoying to some people (doesn't really bother me) ; It does take a bit longer to turn on than some people might like; however for me it isn't really an issue since I never turn it...

Bright and Nice


Ultra thin. Saved me a lot of desk space! Would be nice if it have a HDMI input but I knew this before I order it.

Works great with my Windows 7 system. Setup was very simple. Plug and turn it on

Good picture, can't dim it enough


The sample I bought in 2012 has been problem-free and operates identically to this one, including in regards to not allowing the picture to be dimmed enough. I'm 3 feet from a large south window and have the brightness and contrast controls all the way...

Sharp picture, no dead or stuck pixels. 3-wire grounded power supply -- better for safety and surge protection

Blue LED blinks so brightly in standby mode that airplanes can use it as a beacon in fog ; Somewhat confusing controls, not explained well by the user manual ; Brightness and contrast controls don't allow dimming the picture enough

Consumer review by:



Does not have built in speakers.

Great screen for displaying internet content, email, movies, etc. Probably not optimal for serious gamers, as it's 5ms, but for basic use its perfect. Zero dead pixels thus far, and the stand is sturdy and easy to attach

acer monitorS220HQLAbd


The old 23" View Sonics died. Need to do capacitors. At 21.5" this monitor works well in my environment. Very reasonable on sale. The On Trac shipping was super flash., perfect condition. New Egg, I could never say enough about New Egg. Been doing...

This is an excellent monitor and it's not little. I read all of the reviews and all of the complaints and I have no complaints. Buy it, and if they're on sale, buy two


Consumer review by:

Great value; dubious controls


Great image quality for the price ; Very thin and lightweight ; Matte finish is very effective at reducing reflections from light sources behind you

The controls are hidden underneath and are difficult to find. They are labelled black-on-black, so the labeling is essentially worthless: you have to memorize where the controls are and what they do ; The monitor stand has no adjustments, so you may...

Acer 21.5"


It is a TN panel so color is so-so as is viewing angle. You get what you pay for and I only wish that this one would have been more resilient to the slight drop it took.

Cheap, lightweight, and not horrible color

One of the worst things about this monitor is that it is so thin. Thin enough to the point of when i dropped it from a height of less then 3 feet onto the floor, it broke. I'm not 100% sure but I believe with a thicker screen that break would have been...

A Worthy Addition


I complain a lot, but most of these- aside from the bad factory settings and brightness- are nitpicking. At the price point, these are probably the best you can get at true 1080p. I would only dock an egg if they were at a higher pricepoint. Anymore...

Cheap as hell. Absolutely great price for what they do ; Calibrated correctly, the colors are excellent ; Brightness is extremely strong for high-light environments ; They're light and incredibly thin ; The build quality is pretty strong, especially in...

As many others have said, the factory settings are absolutely disgustingly wrong. It will take a good bit of calibration on both the monitor settings and your GFX driver settings to get them right ; Max color true-ness is something around 85-90%, which...

Good Office Application Monitors


Running 2 side by side and the bezel is 9/16" which isn't too wide for this price point. VERY THIN and LIGHTWEIGHT. I traveled 1200 miles with one and had no damage or dead pixels. Highly recommended. I do Light gaming and refresh rate is a little bit...

21.5" LED ; DVI/VGA ; 1080P ; Good Lighting ; Adjustable Settings ; Lightweight ; Available 2-3 Year after buying the 1st one

Bright Flashing Energy Saving Light - terrible complaint I know
