Acer monitor

Mrs L Jones "LMB", Amazon

  • Summary: Had this for years now (didn't realise I hadn't reviewed it) and I've never had a problem with it. Would happily get another only I don't need one yet!

Dead After 5 Years. Planned obsolescence?

N. Marie, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this for £100 5 years ago new from Amazon. I know this monitor has long been replaced with newer models but someone might find this helpful when deciding on Acer as a brand. While it functioned okay it was not without its faults. It didn't seem to get on very well with my Dell Dimension E521 desktop.

Affordable reliability

Andy Pieters "x_terminat_or_3", Amazon

  • Summary: More than five years after purchasing this screen it is still doing daily service with a smile. When you press the power button to power it on, it will display the Acer logo in cyan on a black background. Sometimes, on one of the screens I have, it gets stuck on the Acer logo, and I have to unplug the power cord to fix it. This only happens once in a blue moon, and only ever on the same screen. I am not an expert on screens but I am happy with it.

Acer 19" monitor

  • Summary: Still in use, well over a year, maybe two now. Better than the Benq I had before, and apart from a few picture wobbles (that could be my computer video card) it is fine.

  • Excerpt: This is a very competent monitor with only a minor drawback. On the up side, it is suprisingly large for a 19 inch monitor because of its widescreen aspect. this makes it perfect for watching DVDs and streaming video (such as iPlayer from the BBC). the refresh rate is fast (8ms) which means it can cope with most newer games, although diehard gamers will probably want something higher spec. the max resolution is 1440 x 900 (i.e.

  • Excerpt: "...it, rather than bin it. The Acer AL1916w comes in both black and silver (mine is silver), its a 19 inch flatscreen (TFT) widescreen monitor and it is very light and durable. It is very easy to install with standard vga socket and even easier to set up as it has a great button marked AUTO which does pretty much everything for you. This has 4 settings which are Auto (does everything), Text, Standard,Graphics & Movie. I haven't tried the other settings ...
  • Pros: Great picture, easy to install
  • Cons: Menu can be tricky to learn to use

  • Excerpt: "Awesome monitor which delivers brilliant picture quality. It's custom made for watching movies and playing computer games as it encompasses a large area within its widescreen. Easy to use because it's plug and play compatible. Power consumption is acceptably low. Occasionally the lines in the screen are visible but that can be ignored since that's the norm with many TFT displays. Easy to the eye to watch images on this monitor. The design is acceptable ...
  • Pros: Easy to use, good quality
  • Cons: design is a bit dull
