Summary: I bought this item for all the above qualities.It create more space in the work area, makes viewing documents and video better. The slim design and look also adds the the work space giving it a better image to the eye.
Summary: I like Acer products, haven't had any major problems to date. This lcd monitor is good for the price. However, the only major drawback I found was that the monitor volume is low, so you may want to make sure you got some good speakers instead of relying on the monitor for sound (games and such). Make sure the resolution suites you. There are lcd's with higher resolution, but way higher price. For average computer user you can't go wrong with the Acer AL1917W.
Summary: We purchased this as a low-end option to replace an older CRT monitor. As is everyone, we are watching the pennies right now, and looked at this monitor as a compromise between price and quality. After we received it and have been using it for about two months, I am VERY happy to say that there is absolutely NO COMPROMISE when it comes to performance, quality of the image and appearance. Price was great, delivery was speedy and we are very pleased.
Summary: This is not the greatest monitor in earth, but it does its job everyday. For the price, this is the fastest monitor that I ever seen, only 5ms of response. Maybe the resolution could be higher or better, however you get for what you pay. The only issue that I didn't like was the fact that the monitor will not autodetect a change of configuration or resolution properly. You must do it manually. Besides that, nothing wrong.
Summary: I've been using this product for a year now. It's been trouble free and I'm gald I got it. Very Bright! Crisp picture. I don't use it for gaming (not a gamer) but it looks fine with video. Great Value for the price.
Summary: Product has potential. Some fuzzy edges that actually look fluid instead of crisp at times. Probably a simple fix, BUT serveral attemtps to contact Customer Support have been unsuccesful. Enough so that when I was recently looking to buy a new laptop, this customer service experience (or lack of) scared me away from the Acer that I was ready to purchase.
Summary: I just want to say this product gave me enough room on my desk to put a scanner and printer with this wide screen LCD AL1917 19".It was one of the best buy's I have made to date.I would highly recommend this Model LCD moniter to anyone.
