Acer V223WBD

 

Overall, the V223WBD LCD monitor from Acer provides a raft of features that are not often available in this category of displays. Backed by a quality manufacturer and a sleek design, the 5ms response time means the V223WBD is a great performance...

Good Value..

 

I have been using 2 other V223W's for over a year. The one bought here is a new addition for a 3 Monitor 'EyeFinity' arrangement. I did have to RMA my 1st one here, bad contrast. It happens with any Mfgr.. but the one sent to me from the RMA procedure...

Easy Monitor adjustments ; Bright, clean picture ; Lower price than other monitors

This screen rocks!

 

Wish I had bought 4 for a wrap around!

Great monitor! I bought one for myself and one for my wife. Both look great with no pixel problems. Very nice screen for the price and well worth it! Newegg rocks

None so far

Acer 22" Monitor Dominates The Compitition

 

EXPERIENCE: First I would like to mention that I find Newegg's service to be unmatched by online standard. The fact that they have the best prices, and you can pay ground shipping, and get your package in 3 days, is just awesome! So I highly recommend...

Crisp Textures, Bright Colors, Large, Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Excellent For Gaming

Great Monitor

 

Puts out the same picture as my other 2 Acer monitors that I bought over 2 years ago. No pixal issues on any of them, they also work in my eyefinity setup x3 displays.

Has a clear picture with good contrast. 3 year warranty, means that even the manufacture expects it to work with no issues for 3 years

Looks a little cheap, but then again compared to my other Acer's, this one is half the price

Great value!

 

I really like these units, they are great for the money and play nicely with the thin clients we use.

These are a great monitor for the money. Very clear, sharp, and a non-glossy, non-HD screen ; HD-format glossy screens do not belong in a work environment! These work great with fluorescent or natural lighting hitting the panel. Glossy panels act as a...

No height adjustment

Looks so good I can't believe its an acer!

 

I am extremely impressed by this monitor. I bought 3 for a triple monitor setup and they are awesome ; After researching a bit by going through every monitor's dimensions on newegg, I found that the bezels are the thinnest you will find for a monitor...

Back is kind of think but is completely necessary if you want to attach a mount of any kind to it ; Cords are a bit short. I had to buy an extension to reach my computer

Tough on the eyes

 

My company purchased one for me to use at work. If all I did was play games, that would be acceptable. Too bad I can't play games all day for a living. Instead, I have to read a lot of text, answer email, use SolidWorks, input data into our tech...

It's cheap, okay if all you do is play games

Very limited tilt, cannot adjust to a suitable gamma level, washed out display, horrible reproduction of text, gray scale is poor, colors bleed through where there should be black and white

Pleasant Surprise

 

Watch for sales. Got these on sale plus free shipping. Also, there are two Acer 22" monitors that look identical, but they are not. Acer model "JBMD" has built-in speakers, while model "JBD" (this model) does not. I have no need for speakers in my...

Awesome "budget" monitors. Clean & vibrant screen, small bezels, lightweight - perfect for my needs. Got two of these to match a year old Samsung 22" for triple-screen setup. The bezels & size dimensions match perfectly. Couldn't have planned that any...

Can't be beat!

 

If you have this issue with yours it can be remedied but purchasing a "desk monitor mount" espcially one that extends the monitor vertically so it's eye level and one that can make it a little closer to you so it's not so far away. (Depending on your...

This monitor is absolutely flawless. The picture is bright and easy to see and gives some monitors with a brightness of 300 cdm a run for the money. Excellent color and clarity everything is crystal clear when used with the supplied DVI cable. If you...

This is obviously not commone but mine has a slight (but not too big of a deal) defect in the supplied stand. Properly installed and clicked in it tilts a hair to the right so it's not 100% "level". This is costing an egg on my review. I was gonna send...
