Summary: I recently bought this monitor and I have to say it looks amazing. I am using it with a desktop running Windows 8, and the image is almost perfect. No light bleeds, no blurriness, nothing. The only problem I have is that I didn't know this wasn't HDMI, and when I went to plug-in an HDMI cord, I couldn't. I'm not going to take off a star because that is my fault for not reading more about it.
Summary: I needed a nice monitor for a good decent price and this was my first pick. It's got great clarity,is large, and put up for a great price I'd recommend to anyone. Also it was shipped very quickly.
Summary: Absolutely fantastic for the price paid. I was genuinely shocked by the quality of design, build and performance you can now get your hands on at this price-point. If you're a purist, I'm sure there are even better units available for more money but I think this will be MORE than adequate for the vast majority of home and office users. I have this hooked up to my laptop in my home office and it works an absolute treat.
Summary: I have 6 of these, 3 from a previous purchase. They're laid out in a 3x2 grid, and they're all in perfect working order. No dead pixels on any of them. One of the 6 has a slightly different default hue/tint that I was able to fix. They are thin, easily mountable, high value for their low price (I purchased at a much lower price than the retail $170).
Summary: I am very happy with this monitor. I think the base could be a little bigger. It's a little shaky and feels like it could tip over very easily. There is no tilt feature unless somebody knows how to fix it. Would appreciate any help on this subject. Otherwise, I like it a lot.
Summary: This is a good monitor but with the factory settings it was incredibly too bright - it hurt my eyes and gave me headaches. After turning the brightness down (off) on the monitor and then tweeking my graphics card's settings for it, I found a setting I can tolerate and am beginning to enjoy them ( I bought two ).
Summary: I have seen the ads of Acer's products on PCWorld Magazine and always wonted to buy any of their items and now I am so glad to own this perfect Acer monitor, the size the color and performance are great for the price. Buy it!
