Summary: I am very happy with this monitor. The picture quality is crisp and clear. There are no signs of phosphor burn-in. Other than a few very minor scuff marks, which are barely noticeable, the unit is in pristine condition. The monitor arrived exactly in 2 days, as expected, and was very nicely packed.
Excerpt: I bought the Acer AL1916W 19-inch Monitor for my most recent computer build, and have found it to be a very clear, colorful picture for a flat screen. The 19-inches makes it fairly compatible with most graphics cards, and easy to read and see what is on the screen. …
Summary: This is the second time I bought this monitor. Happy both times. First one still works but takes 5 minutes to warm up so I replaced it (and sold the old one cheap). If you can find this monitor new, get it.
Summary: I bought this about 3 years ago, and it was awesome for the technology and price then. I wouldn't not recommend it, but there are much better 19-inch monitor options now. However, mine is still going strong. If your looking for a good deal and can find this in the $100 range, go for it.

Summary: I have used this monitor for about two months and find it meets all my requirements. It is bright, adjustable and fast enough for all my needs. It would be better if it had more adjustment in the tilt, but I find that turned out to be not too great a disadvantage.
Summary: I have a desk that has a platform for the monitor above the desktop. That's great, but my old 17" CRT was way too big for it. I had to pull my desk away from the wall about 6 inches just to get the monitor on the platform without it tipping forward onto the desktop.
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace a 17 inch CRT monitor for basic home computing -- email, web surfing, record-keeping, and so on. I don't use it for watching DVD's or playing games. For my uses, this monitor is absolutely perfect. It's big, bright, clear, and it was very well priced.
