Consumer review (



Bought this initially to have a duo monitor setup with an older Acer AL2223W, just bought another one to replace it.

Bright, clear, multiple inputs, doesn't take too much space

Backplate isn't like traditional Acer monitors, was weird getting it sturdy (not worth taking a point off over)

Perfect Budget Gift!! A+


Purchased as a gift for a friend who I just built a new PC for, it finished off this budget build nicely. If you are on a tight budget this is a good option for now. As they'd like a larger newer monitor eventually, this works great for the interim.

Very Good Color Reproduction ; Low Price ; Monitor Looked New

Wish I could of got it a bit cheaper ;) At 70 bucks you are only a sale away from a brand new monitor for 89

Worked good for what I needed it for.

Great Monitor


My second 19" LED monitor from Acer. Very happy with product, although the assembly instructions lack clarity, and even now I have an odd piece that was not on the inventory (some type of strap). Also, so far, I have not been able to activate any of...
