Acer AL1714 17 inch LCD Monitor Purchase for scrap
11 March 2011
Summary: I did buy this article in good faith. More then 1(one) month later I still do not have the product I am sure that I have the right to ask questions related and complain if it is so my vision. I pay everyone within 5 minutes, you don't have to send me the item in 5 minutes but one full month and for scrap. Keep your item and keep the money. I learn something new today, who you are.
Summary: I felt most fortunate finding this monitor, just when I need it the most. I've found it to be of fine quality, well-priced, and have had no problems with it since it arrived, I would recomend this product, and company to any potential buyer.
Summary: all of you mind that i'm talking abot all of this with the high price in mind. the response time is 14ms.... for a cheap 200 monitor ive seen it for around 5ms contrast sucks, most good monitors have ATLEAST 500:1 contrast, for this price you do not want this contrast, lower contrast means worse picture quality. the screen is tiny, who these days has a 17 inch screen,plus its not widescreen!
Summary: Purchased this monitor (Black) to compliment my other Acer AL1714 for a dual monitor setup. It replaced a Planar. The Acer has great picture quality and performs well at several resolutions. The carity is sharp. The sleek bezel design makes the screen look bigger then it is. Menu for adjustments are clear and understandable. This is a high quality monitor and would highly recommend ACER as your choice of monitor.
Summary: I was given this monitor at work to replace a Viewsonic CRT, and I have to say it's not as good. My biggest problem is that it's too bright. I work in a dim environment, and when I turned the monitor down to brightness=0, my eyes still feel fatigue. I also have been unable to adjust the gamma because I can't turn down the brightness enough. Further, when you move your head from side to side, parts of the screen look more and less yellow.
