Summary: Two major problems I noticed immediately with this monitor: First, the stand is an absolute joke. As stated in the manual, you can move it a few degrees back or forward, but it settles in the same position, leaning a bit toward you. It can also be tilted left and right, but stops so that the bottom right of the monitor is lower than the bottom left. The five control buttons are also poorly designed and implemented.
Summary: I bought 3 of these and each one had a problem with the screen where a section of it I noticed during games had a circular indent and a bright crescent shaped light like backlighting along the sides of it. I don't know whether it was due to handling it too rough to get the base in, or not. I just don't understand how it happened to 3 separate monitors of the same make. The other monitors it happened on both sides, but this time its just one.
Summary: Now, when I bought this monitor the colors were perfect, it looked amazing but it was a pain to hook up until I learned you have to push on the fat part of the monitor on the bottom a bit to get the stand in. That annoyed me, but then I started playing around on it and as you'd think 1920x1080 looks gorgeous and I don't notice any ghosting or anything. But what I do notice and its very annoying, to me, as I have an eagle eye for these things.
Summary: This is a nice monitor but one big problem. Acer likes to put the power button and the control buttons on the bottom edge of the screen. You can't see what you are doing. You have 6 buttons and you have to feel your way around it. It is a problem. I would never buy another Acer monitor for that reason.
