Great Monitor So Far

 

Since I just received this monitor and got it hooked up, I hope it lasts as long as my last Acer did (6 years). Mine sits on a solid desk, so I get no wobble out of it as others have claimed. 4 star rating is because of newness, may re-rate as time...

Very Bright Picture, great colors, no dead pixels, plug and play hook up with all cables supplied ; Great price on sale and included delivery, Super fast delivery amazed me

Little tough to find the menu buttons, if they would have just used white coloring would have made it easier to locate and use ; Would have liked to be able to adjust tilt, unsure right now if this can be done, still playing with it

Not so great on its first run...

 

I am shipping the monitor back asap and getting a replacement. I haven't lost faith in Acer, yet, and I expect that the replacement will do me justice. I'll update this review when I acquire the new one.

Big monitor with anything you'd need for a really low price

Right out the box, the monitor would turn on for a few seconds, then the screen would go black. None of the buttons would respond, and the on-switch would switch to an orange color instead of green. All that's left to do then is turn it off. Also, on...

Great monitors, excellent price.

 

I'm really happy I pulled the trigger on these. My criteria have been met and exceeded. The key things I wanted were: - LED backlighting - Relatively narrow bezel - Decent resolution ( >= 1920x 1080 ) - VESA mounts - VGA/DVI for my current video...

For the price, you really can't beat these monitors for secondary and tertiary screens (as they are for me). Even as a Primary monitor, they are excellent as long as "built-in" speakers wasn't your primary selling point (based on other reviews, since I...

Things that might affect you: No Displayport. Not USB Ports. No height adjustment (but does have 5-15% tilt adjustment ; My only chief "complaint" is the resolution (1920 x 1080) isn't quite the same as my primary monitor (1920 x 1200). What does this...

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

On sale for 129$ can't go wrong.

Very bright clean picture, seems to be well built

No cons for me as of yet, i do hear complaints about the speakers sucking but for me even if that's so i won't drop an egg i always use surround sound systems

Solid Acer Monitor

 

I did not expect a whole lot from this based on the price (under $120) and I am happy with what I got - a 24", 1080p Gaming monitor. Games look incredible on it.

Very bright (pro and con). Picture is very bright and crisp ; Full HD ; Speakers (technically, mine did not work out of box, but I use headphones anyway) ; HDMI or DVI connection ; Tilt ; Lightweight

Very Bright - very very bright, even with a completely black desktop background. I mention this as a con and a pro because it makes a huge difference depending on what you are using this for ; However, you can change the Color Temp and they have preset...

Looks good!

 

All in all a good buy for a good price! It does exactly as advertised! Works good and comes with all the necessary cables! The ports are on the back and very conveniently placed! I have only had this for a few hours so I'll continue keeping tabs on it!

So right out of the box it came with everything like advertised! Has a DVI, HDMI, and VGA cable! The stand isn't really wobbly at all if really at all so it's alright. The monitor itself looks nice and the picture looks very clear

The speakers are awful. I had them turned up as loud as could be and it must of made the bare minimum amount of sound that's acceptable. Def not worth it for the speakers but I didn't buy these for the speakers and neither should you ; The hook up...

Would have been a great case!!!

 

As others have stated the speakers are basically worthless, I knew that going in, and it didn't matter to me, but I did not expect it to be so bad on colors and wobbly. I wonder if I can get a refund...

it was $119 on sale

Even on the lowest brightness settings and after mucking around with color calibration it is way too bright and all the colors are just so wrong. The stand is totally flimsy and if you so much as move your mouse or type too hard it's going to wobble ;...
