Summary: Bought this monitor a few months ago for the 3D, and it had some pretty good reviews. All in all, it's pretty decent. Nice color, nice size, 1080p 120Hz is wonderful, and it wasn't too expensive. Out of the box, everything was perfect. I got this thing set up very easily. The controls on the bottom are a bit weird, took me a while to figure them out.
Summary: A good monitor but still have lots minor problems... I should say. Shape is good, no doubt the figure inspired by Alienware is attractive. The performance is fair. It is good for gaming but lots problems on movies. See color jamming on objects' edges. also the light leaking on the bottom makes not that satisfied. Tried correction on the color and gamma but still has lots issues. I could only said that It's a TN panel..
Summary: Decided to try 3d vision, so I got this 120hz monitor. The miss-colorization that many reviews have mentioned is not present in my monitor, but there is something strange going on. When the monitor gets shifted into 3d mode (120hz) and the screen is supposed to be black, the lower right corner fades to grey. WHen I first got the monitor, I was playing a game that was mostly greys (Assassins Creed), so it was not an issue.
Summary: Acer's manual and marketing details state the monitor has a 2ms response time, however I see ranges from 9-17ms from my testing. Their manual doesn't state weather this measurement is for white->back->white or grey-to-grey, so I tested both. I also tested "display lag" and saw numbers from 11-22ms depending on weither v-sync waiting was turned on or not. My methodology was to use a 1000 fps video camera and a micro-controller hooked up to the PC.
Nice looking monitor, but it is luck of the draw if you get a good one.

Summary: I received this monitor the other day and was super excited to start using it. The setup is very simple and it looks really nice. However the problem I encountered was a humming/buzzing while looking at dark colors (mostly when browsing the web). If there was a dark banner at the top of the screen the buzzing would be very audible, but if I scrolled down it would get quieter.
Summary: All in all, pretty good monitor. looks nice, 120hz makes everything look smooth. brights are bright, darks are dark, colors are nice. 2 issues though: 1) the stand kinda sucks. for gamers who use big mousepads, the pointyness and lack of versatility of the monitor stinks, i bought a monitor arm and mounted it on my own to fix that tho.
Summary: Pros: - Nice size and resolution. I upgraded from a 22" 16:10 Widscreen LCD and this seems about the same height, but has more horizontal space due to the 16:9 resolution. - Good colors, image quality, black levels. - 3D gaming immersive experience Cons: - My monitor seems to have a very annoying humming noise whenever the screen is showing a lot of black or certain composition of colors.
