Summary: 1. When VGA cable is plugged, input source selection fails. It circles around all the input sources and returns to VGA. Even if HDMI is on, it still switches back to VGA. I contacted Acer support. It took the Indian girl 20 minutes to figure out the problem is with an Acer LCD monitor instead of Acer desktop. They she claimed something was wrong with my Dell laptop, and redirected me to paid service. Well... 2.The picture on this monitor is awful.
Summary: This monitor works perfect. buy it on April 17, 2009 and so far no problems good quality color and response UPDATE 21-8-2010 I was very happy with my monitor after 1 year and 3 months stopped working. flash and the screen is blank all the time, signal or not white is always displayed.
Summary: First, I should say I purchased this monitor from a physical computer/electronics store but there are quite a few things that anyone looking to buy this monitor should know. I will try to keep this as simple as possible, but the bottom line is that a lot of people are unable to run these monitors at full resolution (1920x1080... ie "1080p"} via VGA from a computer. That's the "what." If you want to read the "why" I've included it below.
I will not purchase another Acer product, nor will I advice my clients to do so.

Summary: I am a computer network consultant, and have been since 1990. I purchased 3 of these monitors, 2 for my office, and 1 for a client in the last 3 months. I noticed the monitor on my partner's desk had a pixel out 6" from the left, and 3.5" from the bottom. I called Acer Support at 1.800.816.2237 at about 9:30am, and was connected with India.
Acer 24 Inch Monitor Has Power Supply Noise Issues

Summary: Thie monitor has a real nice display. Picked it up on sale last week for $199, it was a special buy item. The monitor worked great for about 12 days. I turned it on today and is has a power supply humming noise that drove me crazy. Fortunately I was within the 14 day store return period so I just boxed it up and returned it to Staples. There are other people that have posted comments about the noise that this monitor makes.
Summary: Although this monitor is very crisp and the picture quality is great, it causes a persistent high pitched noise after some use. Though I don't know the cause of this it is a very very annoying sound of which I just can't stand using. The Amazon outer packaging box that it had been delivered with was also very beat up (Amazon? FedEx?). The packaging on both that box and the box housing the monitor itself had cuts on the tape sealing the box on one end.
Summary: I love this monitor! you never know how much you need it untill you have it! I've previeously owned a samsung syncmaster 730B loved it, but having this makes it look like a dwarf! I can have two program windows side by side now surf the web and read a pdf at once! The quality on the xbox 360 and ps3 is simply lovely! the only thing that is kind of a bit of a bugger for me is that when switching inputs sometimes it takes a little doing with the touch buttons.
