Summary: Great monitor,No dead pixels after about a year. Leaves so much more desk space than the crt it replaced. More Than enough brightness, brilliant colors. Paid a bit under $200 in '07 but prices keep falling.
Summary: I just recently purchased this monitor and received it yesterday, 1/30/2006 and so far I really like it. It is really bright like one of the previous reviewers stated but, in my opinion not unbearable. The picture is sharp, the colors are true and it is very sleek. This is my opinion so far, and I hope that I don't have to send it back, but like I stated so far, so good.
Summary: This is a very nice bright and sharp monitor. It did have a dead pixel in the middle right of the screen out of the box. Amazon will send me another without me returning that one first. I liked it so much though, I bought another one for home. No dead pixels on this one. Better than my Dells, and only top Sony looks better overall, for a $150 more. Check out Samsung, Viewsonic, and other monitors costing more, I don't think you can beat this one for the price.
Summary: I recently purchased an Acer 17" LCD Monitor from Amazon. I am more than satisfied with this purchase. The color quality of the display is amazing. I do alot of photographic work on this system, and am able to match the screen with my printed photos. This is not the first Acer product I had, For a long time my PC was an Acer product, and it served me well for many years. I would most definately buy another Acer product should the opportunity arise.
