These monitors are beautiful. The 16

Nate H., Amazon

  • Summary: These monitors are beautiful. The 16:10 aspect ratio is great for work and still looks fantastic for media. I got two of these side by side. The thin bezels make the two feel almost seamless. The screen is bright and crispy! Highly recommended!

Amazing Monitor

Jesse B., Amazon

  • Summary: I have gone through many monitors as a software developer in my life, at work, home, laptops, you know it. My current favorite monitor I use is the ASUS Pro-Art 27". I am not a 4k kind of guy until prices drop.

  • Summary: This is our fourth Acer monitor! What a quality product. Will definitely buy again!
  • Pros: We purchased this monitor for my wife's transcription business. She is so pleased with it! The 24" screen is perfect! She can transcribe on one side, while viewing slides of presentations in PowerPoint to refer to. The brightness and clarity of the screen is remarkable! She loves the wide base, i...

Superb lower price 24" 1920-1200 displayport monitor

Donald Hampton "vista64 lover", Amazon
14 April 2015
  • Summary: Displayport, DVI, VGA (No HDMI). Has superb stand with almost infinite adjustment. Stand hides VESA mount point and removes easily. Really thin bezel, 3 of these connected with Displayport to a good gaming oriented graphics card looks great.

Very Nice!

  • Summary: When i bought this monitor I missed the fact that it has no HDMI input which put me into a little predicament because the Laptop I use only has HDMI and two Mini DP outputs. I used a VGA -> mini DP adapter that i had laying around and I had some ghosting horizontal lines but after switching to a...
  • Pros: This monitor looks very nice, The picture quality is amazing. The gunmetal matches my Corsair K65 and Logitech G602 well.
  • Cons: No HDMI

Great Monitor

  • Summary: I use this monitor on my work laptop and run with a lot of browser tabs open. The height is perfect for viewing over the laptop screen. Tilt adjustment more than covers the range needed.
  • Pros: A solid base with wide height adjustment range Started up right out of the box-no issues
  • Cons: None at this point. I love it.

Great monitor, but not for everyone

Christopher A., Newegg
29 August 2014
  • Summary: This would be a 3/5 at regular price, but because I got it on sale for $150 i'll give it 4/5. If you are looking for an IPS monitor with an excellent stand and display port, this is a great choice at sale price.
  • Pros: Excellent colors! (IPS) Blacks are dark. Build quality is impressive. Stand does everything. VESA mount compatible. The bezel is actually a dark grey/ gun metal. Cables can be routed through the stand. Matte display Displayport, but I don't see any benefit this has over HDMI for this resolution a...
  • Cons: Aggressive pixel overdrive results in massive inverse ghosting. This cannot be disabled, making this the biggest con for this monitor. IPS glow is noticeable in the lower left corner when sitting close to the monitor, but almost non-existent when farther away. Monitor can sometimes ring. I notice...

  • Pros: I got this monitor on a sale for 150 dollars and I couldn't be anymore pleased with it. It has a high quality panel with a high default resolution. Gaming on it is beautiful. The stand has all the adjustments you would ever need and the installation was a breeze. Someone mentioned that it didn't ...

  • Summary: My unit also had dirt at 150px left, 980px down, about 3x2 pixels big between back light and screen so I'm hoping for a replacement that wouldn't have the inverse ghosting problem, as I do like everything else about this monitor. Also don't expect too much of monitor integrator speakers.
  • Pros: Good static image quality and all the good things about IPS, has DVI, has audio over DisplayPort, nice fully adjustable stand. Only slight light bleed / IPS glow from bottom left. Huge discount when I got it. Supports 76Hz refresh rate via EDID override (for ATI & NV gfx cards).
  • Cons: Shows noticeable inverse ghosting (overshoot) presumably due to pixel overdrive too high. When dragging a window around, dark text on light background will show a bright trailing shadow. Also shows in panning scenes in videos, and in game scenes such as dark silhouette moving against light sky or...
