Acer 24 Inch Monitor Has Power Supply Noise Issues
Love Technology, Amazon

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.
