good used monitor - perfect match for the one i have

lchien, Ebay
9 March 2012
  • Summary: i had one of these; it was a good monitor 20" with a lot of pixels for the money, wanted another for dual screens, not that old, but no longer available new, so I bought two for about what the original cost new. Seems like there's a lot of parts available to repair these - don't know if that means they fail often - hope not.

3 1/2 years then it died.

Danax, Amazon
29 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this in late 2007 and it worked fine until today (4-29-11). The power light flashes amber then green and the screen remains black. I have a dual-monitor system and switched the other one and it worked fine on the same video card plug as the bad one, thus determining that the monitor itself is indeed the problem. Interesting that it came with a 3 year warranty and here we are 3 1/2 years later. Planned obselescence?

Good for the price

J.Bourne "J.Bourne", Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: I've owned this monitor for 3 years and this morning it quit on me. It now just flashes on and off and nothing I do can reset it. 3 years is a long time but there's no reason a monitor shouldn't last at least 5. I'm disappointed in it's stamina for sure. As to it's funtion, works great out of the box. Decent image, it's only a 1680X1050 res so it's not the clearest picture. I haven't had any problems with this until now. 8ms response time is great.

Monitor smelled like burned plastic and stopped working

Dennis X. Legault "Video dad", Amazon
24 April 2009
  • Summary: This monitor was great ... while it worked. After about 14 months, I walked in my office and smelled a very strange smell that was like an electronic-overheated-type smell. Turns out it was coming from this monitor. After unplugging it and letting the smell dissipate, when I turn it on, all I get is a white screen.

Lousy Monitor!

C. Brackett "clbrackett@bellsouth.net", Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: This is one lousy monitor. First off the VGA connection doesn't work with my Mac Mini. The DVI connection does, the problem with having the DVI connection is that the monitor blacks out and then comes right back. I did some research on the internet and much to my dismay this is the case with all Acer monitors, it is a glitch that can't be fixed and Acer refuses to acknowledge the problem.

Exactly what I wanted for my MacBook Pro

Dr. Paul Ruffle, Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: I was looking for a modest sized 1680 x 1050 wide screen format LCD monitor to use as a second screen with my 17" Apple MacBook Pro laptop. It works a treat, doubling my desktop estate, has a DVI connector, and the silver frame matches my MacBook. The colours are sharp and bright too. Excellent value for money, especially when I think what I paid for CRT monitors a few years ago.

Acer 20" Wide LCD Monitor

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 November 2007
  • Summary: I bought two of these monitors - one for my wife and the other for me. These are fabulous monitors with a very clear display, fast enough to show videos well, and wide so that more can be displayed. If you're looking for great product at a great price, this is it.
