Good features and price

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: No major complaints. Works as advertised so far.
  • Pros: I was looking for a somewhat small decent looking monitor for light use in the office that didn't look like it belonged in a living room or something. With straight lines, physical buttons and sturdy stand this fits the bill. Pros: -Price -Height adjust, pivot, tilt and turn-able stand. Portrait ...
  • Cons: -I did notice a bit of graininess which I didn't expect for a panel this small at 1080p. It wasn't that bad but was noticeable when compared to a much older and larger 1080p Samsung monitor. I'm kind of nitpicking though. -I'm really not sure why they included DP instead of HDMI. DP isn't very us...

Great Product when it works

matt D., Newegg

  • Summary: I ordered two of these monitors for a two monitor setup with my PC. One of them came in and works flawlessly. However the other one displayed a heavy green hue over the image. I tried all the settings to no avail. I am now on my fourth total monitor, and have only had one that is working properly.
  • Pros: -Display port -USB connectivity -High Resolution -Cheap Price -Newegg customer support
  • Cons: -The quality control at ACER is horrible.

good business monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
25 March 2016
  • Summary: Not a gaming monitor, but very good for business, text editing, etc, which is what I use it for. Monitors in general seem to be getting better and better-each new monitor that I get seems better than the last-but I was particularly impressed with the stability and flexibility of the stand.
  • Pros: Sharp text. Heavy, very stable stand. Great height adjustment and swivel. DisplayPort
  • Cons: Specs say it has built-in speakers, and it has an audio input and on-screen volume adjustment, BUT I could not get any sound out of it, nor even find the speakers! If they are there at all, they are very well hidden, and not plug-and-play. Since I don't need monitor speakers, I am not looking int...

Great for coding in portrait mode

Anonymous, Newegg
7 March 2016
  • Summary: I haven't tried the speakers, so I can't speak to the quality of those.
  • Pros: My work bought this for me and some other developers here as a second monitor. I primarily use it in portrait mode to have multiple tabs open in my code editor. For this purpose, it works very well! The base allows for a really good range of motion, which is good whenever I need to quickly put it...

bargain station.

branded, Walmart
12 July 2015
  • Summary: This product was defective. walmart should access whether it is a good idea to have secondary marketers use the walmart name to sell their defective merchandise. these secondary marketers serve as a black eye to the integrity of the walmart name to the consumer.

Does what I expected

Paul E., Newegg
5 June 2015
  • Pros: I bought this monitor so I could have a vertical monitor to look at documents while I play games/write code. As a primary monitor it probably wouldn't be great but for my purposes it does exactly what I need at a low cost.
  • Cons: None
