Summary: The monitor works, has a nice thin profile. The display looks pretty good for the document writing I do. It is actually a bit bright out of the box. Hard to complain for the price. It comes with a VGA and DVI cable. One oddity, the buttons are hidden on the bottom right of the screen. It isn't obvious at first. Minor bad point is that the screen only tilts about 25 degrees, but that isn't a big problem.
Summary: This item did not work at all. Power light would not come on. We hooked up a different monitor and that worked fine. There is no way this item was refurbished. There is no way anyone there even plugged it in. Complete junk. I want my money back.
Summary: I ordered 2 of these to go with 2 desktop computers we purchased at the same time. The picture quality is crisp and clear. We are gamers and actually picking up a lot of detail that we could not before. We shall see how well they hold up as we have only had them for about a week but so far I am impressed. Make sure to get the warranty though as Acer will try to charge you for tech support as they were out of warranty from the manufacture when I got mine.
