Summary: The bottom line is that while the Acer AL1916 is not quite perfect, what few minor issues it has--like a slightly washed out looking black. None of them are IMO a deal breaker; on the plus side you get a good basic 19” LCD with a DVI connector that doesn't ghost in games for less than 200 usd. If you are on a budget this monitor deserves serious consideration.
Pros: DVI connector, No ghosting, Low price
Cons: Black slightly washed out, OSD menus not well organized
