Acer Monitor Rocks

 

Monitor is solid. It has been working perfectly for 6 months now. Colors are vivid and edges are sharp. A great monitor for the price

The speakers work but the quality is nil.. Ended up getting other speakers because I could not stand it

Great little monitor

 

Use the cables it comes with. Great for kids room or family work space where you need a reliable monitor. Remember it's 17" and not a gammers choice. I gave it 5 stars because it works great and is just right for my 3rd computer at home.

Plug in and your set. Great for a small desk. Color is good. Price is right

It's small. Not for wide screen movies; unless you now like a screen the size of an IPOD

not too bad

 

my setup: acer 18.5" primary starlogic 17" secondary HIS Radeon x1950 pro

extremely fast shipping ; no dead pixels ; clean design(no gaudy stickers all over it) ; got it on sale

nothing really, cheap monitor that does exactly what it said it would. i'm not largly into video but what movies/clips i do watch are crisp and vibrant. It's nowhere close to HD quality....but well worth the 80 bucks

Great Monitor

 

It comes with a 3 year warranty and Acer stands behind their stuff! If it does go south then you go to the Acer site and submit an RMA and "pow" you're on your way to a new monitor.

This is the monitor to buy if you're considering a 17" Flat Panel. Great resolution, great picture. Just a great Flat Panel

None that I can think of

LCD is your friend

 

This LCD is small but dependable.  I've set up quite a few of LCD's in my time and Acer is a brand you can trust.  The picture is good but certainly not a 22" screen or larger.  If you've been spoiled by a one of the larger screens then it may take a...
