it's brilliant and I would easily recommend this for anyone
6 February 2015
Summary: The only issue I have with this monitor is a minor bit of ghosting against bright colours which isn't noticeable at most times. Apart from that, it's brilliant and I would easily recommend this for anyone, arrived undamaged and works perfectly.
Summary: Great product. There is just one major flaw. I can't reduce the brightness enough. Even at the lowest brightness setting it strains the eyes too much. My phone at half brightness is the same as this monitor and lowest brightness to put it into perspective.
Summary: I work from home a few days of the week, and whilst I can have two screens at work, that's not practical at home, so a large screen was essential. The Acer ticked all the boxes - price, clarity and also having old fashioned inputs! It is completely straightforward to install - plugged in to the PC, plugged into mains - done. The only tricky bit was the stand - I know it is easy once you realise which way round it goes (hint: longer legs at the front).
Summary: I got lost trying to read reviews working out which monitor does what and which works best. It looks good on my desk, does the job and the fiddly "guess where they are" buttons aren't really needed after set-up. The colours on default settings were way out, but easily corrected. Only downside for me is a sound out socket, but that's nitpicking really. Great value.
