Solid color and grayscale performance gives it a good feel

Stann, Amazon

  • Summary: This Acer is a reasonably priced 29-inch Ultra-wide monitor offering a generous selection of ports, solid IPS color performance, and an ergonomic stand. It however has some issues with the viewing angle and rotation of the screen so it's worth comparing to this Ultrasharp here:...

Working nice. So far no problem at all

X. LU, Amazon
27 June 2015
  • Summary: Working nice. So far no problem at all. Couple things you need to be aware of. 1) It's beyond the capability of single link DVI so you need dual link DVI cable which comes within the box, if you happened to use DVI.

Wow...

Michael C., Newegg
9 June 2015
  • Pros: What a beautiful Screen at an awesome price. This monitor is a little smaller in height vs a standard 24" monitor but just awesomely wide. 3 layout pages wide. Colors look great and I see no dead pixels.
  • Cons: Im getting a flashing on my PS4 where the screen goes black intermittently. This doesn't happen with my computer connection though. Ive googled around and its either the HDCP or Deep color setting on the PS4. I will try setting them off when I get home. Im impressed with the quality though!!!

Beautiful

Armando M., Newegg
31 May 2015
  • Summary: Overall I feel satisfied about my decision to buy this monitor. I was on a 24in 1080x1920 and while I was happy with it I wanted to get something bigger and with better display for gaming. This machine is a beast, even when it's off it looks great on the desk.
  • Pros: Great quality screen, bright, vibrant colors, great viewing angels and no dead pixels.
  • Cons: I already want a 32in, but that's just me being crazy. Another con is that you'll want to spend more money on another one just like it.

21:9 Monitor Goodness

Jason H., Newegg
27 April 2015
  • Summary: Because my employer is cheap and has me using ancient and small monitors, I purchased one of these myself to increase my work experience. First of all the monitor is well packaged. Comes with lots of input cables and overall offers a pretty attractive design.
  • Pros: * Solid color reproduction and contrast * 21:9 is excellent for productivity (games and movies too!) * Lots of input choices * Priced well ($315 at time of purchase) * Decent stand * 3 Year warranty
  • Cons: * Speakers are horrible * Some color shift noticeable if viewed off center
