Excellent value for the money

 

It is a far nicer monitor than I expected for the dollar's spent. No you can't tilt it up and down but for the dollar value you don't get that option typically. If you need a basic monitor you won't beat the price for the value. No dead pixels, set up...

HD, Colour is great, worked on plug in, set up was easy, well packaged.

Unusual power cord, non standard.

Good Value

 

I'm very understanding of the cons because I know these are refurbs and I'm imagining a factory where there are separate bins of spare parts that are not all the same and not all perfect, but functioning and compatible. At the time these were on sale...

- Works as advertised - Good value (quality:price) - Unlike the description, mine came with both VGA and DVI cables (but don't bank on it).

Preface: These are not complaints, just setting expectations. - Color and contrast are not great. I was able to improve it from poor to average by adjusting the settings. I have brightness at 60 and contrast at 35. - One of the two I ordered had a...

Conflicted: Great monitor when it's not broken

 

Ordered the 1 year replacement warranty Can't use it because the dog ate the original box/upc number I not have a broken second monitor that I can't even sell to someone else. Extremely disappointed.

Great resolution Great size Happy with the WORKING monitor 100%

Nothing with the actual monitor, but one of the two does not work.

2 monitors purchased - one stand higher then other

 

Monitors are great - but mounts vary

Monitors are very good

Called to get plastic collar replaced to match other collar on monitor - didn't get any help

Loved it for the price and size

 

I would highly recommend this monitors to others, it is amazing for its price, but only buy it if you have a spare VGA input otherwise you'd be in for a horrible surprise

The monitor came with all of the necessary wires and setup instructions. It also came undamaged and in perfect shape, no dings or scratches. The resolution is amazing and its price and perfect for this monitor.

I have had no recent issues with the monitor to this day, but I would have liked it to have an HDMI output to connect to my pc

Going to sell

 

Not too crazy about any Acer products. Stick with Asus better quality and not as cheaply made.

it was delivered to house and worked. Worked bad but still worked.

Have to watch a certain way to see clear. No adjustment and very cheap. I had to buy a ASUS 23.5 because the Acer was such a bad picture.

Cheap, but worthwhile

 

I bought this for a mid-range gaming PC over the summer – it's worked well enough and I don't regret my purchase, although I'll probably end up replacing it with something more expensive. Very bright out of the box. Scaling the brightness back to...

It's cheap at a sale price of $100 and comes with cables to match both ports (VGA and DVI). The picture quality is reasonable – I've been using it for gaming, work, and general internet browsing for about four months without any real complaint. No...

It's a TN panel, as others have said, and the viewing angle (especially vertically) really isn't great. I haven't had that many issues with games or videos, but when I'm browsing the internet or doing work, washed-out colors become noticeable,...

Decent monitor for price

 

If you cant afford anything better, go for it. If you can, I would spend a little bit more and get something that has a little better brightness/color.

Very good price, I dont notice most of my cons while playing games.

Very strange brightness, blacks seem very washed out, especially around the edges of the monitor. It was enough to initially make me want to return the monitors, but I've gotten used to it a little bit. I don't notice it as much gaming as I do sitting...

Acer G226HQLBbd (UM.WG6AA.B01)

 

Might be ok for someone, but the viewing angle is so bad that you have to have the monitor at the exact angle in order to not have large black hazy sections outside viewing angle. Also, doesn't tilt very far to accommodate for the viewing angle....

It works

- Washed out colors - Poor viewing angle - Can't tilt the monitor very far
