Great $119.99 Monitor

Joon L., Newegg
14 July 2015
  • Summary: If you're looking to get this monitor, at least try to wait for the price to drop to around $130. I got lucky and got this for $120.
  • Pros: Bright Display Rich Colors (Default vibrance matches the 75% digital vibrance I used on my old monitor) No Dead Pixels! Only $119.99 when I bought it!
  • Cons: The power button on the lower right of the frame has a blue light. Gets a little annoying but doesn't hinder my movie-watching and gameplay.

I like it!

Bryan P., Newegg
23 June 2015
  • Summary: Overall I think this is a nice monitor. I bought 2 of them a couple weeks before Father's Day and Newegg happened to have a discount on them that day for buying 2 or more and then they had an additional 10% off promo code so for what I ended up paying for them it's easy for me to overlook their lack...
  • Pros: 24" 1080p LED monitor. it's pretty thin and takes up very little desk space. good response time, games and video look great on it.
  • Cons: Limited viewing angle, you have to have it tilted just right to get the best picture. The side to side viewing angle is better than the up/down viewing angle. It only has VGA and DVI inputs. You would thing that a product produced in this day and age would at least have HDMI and this thing doesn'...

Jason H., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Summary: Getting ready to RMA, will update review when new one arrives and used for a while.
  • Pros: Quality of picture is very nice Good size Lightweight.

One (year) and done!

Anne S., Newegg
13 May 2015
  • Summary: This Acer monitor crapped out on me exactly one year to the day from when I bought it. It won't power on. Acer told me I have to mail it back (on my dime), and they won't provide me with a box to ship it in. Where am I going to find a secure shipping box for a 24" flat screen monitor?!
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Didn't last more than a year

OSD awkward

Edward J., Newegg
10 May 2015
  • Summary: Default setting for brilliance is washout bright. I set mine to eco mode and auto dim. This G6 series 24 inch model not shown on Acer website, so don't discard the CD. Note s/n on back before hookup or find it on shipping box. Also displays when OSD info option selected.
  • Pros: Small budget, good performance, bright. Has 100mm spacing wall mount in addition to x-style stand. Power Pin has right angle connection allowing cable adjustment to down position. Both VGA and DVI cables included. No dead pixels. Edge to edge display with no distortion. Factory 3 yr limited warra...
  • Cons: OSD is under bottom of screen. Need a mirror to see which button is for what function. Confusing to work it by braille. Manual little help. Fortunately I have Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel. Powered by brick to 5vDC plug. Brick requires proprietary 120vAC cord. Display cable ports are all...

Great Monitor

William D., Newegg
27 April 2015
  • Summary: I wanted more than 60Hz but this was on sale and was a great deal for the price at the time($130). Monitors seem to have not changed in price since I bought it so it's an interesting market to look at.
  • Pros: 5ms response time, 24 inches, 1080p. Great color LED display.
  • Cons: None.

Really 24" diagonal screen

Dr M., Newegg
14 April 2015
  • Summary: There are plenty of choices for excellent 24" monitors and this is as good as any of them. It has a larger viewing screen than most 24" class monitors. Between newer HANNS-G and Philips 24" monitors that I own, this looks better to me using Nvidia 760 video card and Nvidia driver.
  • Pros: Price, 3-yr warranty, includes an analog as well as an HDMI cord, slimmer bezel than most 24" monitors, easy set-up.... the screen really is 24" diagonal unlike many 24" monitors which are a half inch shorter (diagonally).
  • Cons: After running the CD for registration, the drop down menu doesn't have Windows 8 as an option, so this must be an old model. The driver is dated 2009 which is 5 years old! It really doesn't need a driver because Windows recognizes it without any problems, so I didn't load the driver.
