A nice monitor.

Jim "Jim", Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought an AW1916WA monitor, used, locally to hook up to my 11.6" Windows 7 netbook. The monitor was in great shape externally. It was easy to hook up but the picture initially was not very impressive. I went through the Windows calibration and the picture was perfect. I use the VGA input and I have had no reason to make any adjustments since my initial setup. I have it next to a 23" LED, 1080p, IPS monitor and it is of course not as good but it compares favorably.

"Fine, but not fantastic"

jorgekemp, CNET
5 January 2014
  • Pros: Aspect ratio (I find monitors under 21" at 16:9 are too short) Resolution is better than most new budget monitors Fairly robust (mine has survived 2 moves and a lot of 'faffing')
  • Cons: VGA only 1440 x 900 isn't exactly mind blowing Blue stuck pixel appeared 3 weeks after the 12 month warranty expired Colours are woeful Contrast is non-existent

Great Monitor

Win, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: This monitor has worked perfectly for over six years. Although one of the cheapest, it is well-built and outperforms more expensive monitors. It has great screen color and definition. It's awesome. I certainly got my money's worth and am extremely satisfied. It was simple to set up. Just two wires to connect and you're in business.

Acer monitors can be fixed and it is fun to do so.

brucehunt, Ebay

  • Summary: Keep in mind I do not buy working monitors. I love the fixing part of the process and the satisfaction of having a working monitor when I am done. Overall, I like the Acer monitor as it seems to be an easy fix and a nice monitor to use.

Good for a year

Darrin K. Lyon, Amazon
12 August 2010
  • Summary: I got this monitor at Walmart and it was fantastic for my needs. The monitor only lasted just over a year. That is unacceptable. About a week ago the monitor would not wake up. It powered on but would not come on. Several cable and monitor swaps later I narrowed it down to a bad monitor. I replaced it recently with a 23" HP monitor for about the same price.

This is an awesome monitor.

saltycapt, Ebay
8 January 2010
  • Summary: This monitor is a great value for the price. It works with every card and every pc i've connected it to with no problem. It's resolution is clear, it's maintenance cheap, and it's serial cable is diconnectable, which are harder and harder to find for some reason. I would buy these monitors all day long!

Good price and great monitor.

Jay D. Anderson, Amazon
4 December 2008
  • Summary: Absolutely nothing wrong with this monitor. Vibrant color, responsive. Cannot see the pixels at all... very fine. Blacks are very very black... good conrast. Good consistency across the screen. No complaints and half the price of lesser monitors. Get this one.
