Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

I bought 3 of these in 2014 one of them went stupid doing image jumping around on the screen and now the second one just has colored lines instead of a picture don't waste your money they won't last at all.

Was a good monitor till it just stopped working

Stopped working just multi color lines now

Very Nice!

 

When i bought this monitor I missed the fact that it has no HDMI input which put me into a little predicament because the Laptop I use only has HDMI and two Mini DP outputs. I used a VGA -> mini DP adapter that i had laying around and I had some...

This monitor looks very nice, The picture quality is amazing. The gunmetal matches my Corsair K65 and Logitech G602 well

No HDMI

Great Monitor

 

I use this monitor on my work laptop and run with a lot of browser tabs open. The height is perfect for viewing over the laptop screen. Tilt adjustment more than covers the range needed.

A solid base with wide height adjustment range ; Started up right out of the box-no issues

None at this point. I love it

Great monitor, but not for everyone

 

This would be a 3/5 at regular price, but because I got it on sale for $150 i'll give it 4/5. If you are looking for an IPS monitor with an excellent stand and display port, this is a great choice at sale price. At $200+ I would look for a monitor...

Excellent colors! (IPS) ; Blacks are dark ; Build quality is impressive ; Stand does everything ; VESA mount compatible ; The bezel is actually a dark grey/ gun metal ; Cables can be routed through the stand ; Matte display ; Displayport, but I don't...

Aggressive pixel overdrive results in massive inverse ghosting ; This cannot be disabled, making this the biggest con for this monitor ; IPS glow is noticeable in the lower left corner when sitting close to the monitor, but almost non-existent when...

I got this monitor on a sale for 150 dollars and I couldn't be anymore pleased with it. It has a high quality panel with a high default resolution. Gaming on it is beautiful. The stand has all the adjustments you would ever need and the installation...

Acer B246HYL ymdpr

 

My unit also had dirt at 150px left, 980px down, about 3x2 pixels big between back light and screen so I'm hoping for a replacement that wouldn't have the inverse ghosting problem, as I do like everything else about this monitor. Also don't expect too...

Good static image quality and all the good things about IPS, has DVI, has audio over DisplayPort, nice fully adjustable stand. Only slight light bleed / IPS glow from bottom left. Huge discount when I got it. Supports 76Hz refresh rate via EDID...

Shows noticeable inverse ghosting (overshoot) presumably due to pixel overdrive too high ; When dragging a window around, dark text on light background will show a bright trailing shadow. Also shows in panning scenes in videos, and in game scenes such...

ATI Radeon 7500 64mb PCI card

 

Fortunately, we can return this defect Acer monitor to Newegg for a replacement. Pray for the next shipping is NOT a defect product. Don't trust Acer product now as it is my first Acer purchase.

None

This Acer monitor is defect right out of the box as it shows a thin quite visible line right in the middle of the screen from top to bottom to divide the screen equally into 1/2. Such an obvious defect should never pass a rigorous quality control....
