Summary: It's a fine, all-around pretty monitor so far. I'd have given it 5 stars, but such a huge portion of negative reviews for other Acer monitors leaves me reasonably expecting trouble with this one, although I bought it because it had the best reviews for anything in its class. LEDs seem to have higher failure rates than ugly old LCDs, some of which I've seen last unhindered for a decade. For now, it's just what I wanted and will remain so until it dies.
I like the feature you can make larger fonts on text ...

Summary: This monitor is want I wanted very sharp picture. I like the feature you can make larger fonts on text like when reading by holding ctrl key and pressing the + key to make the font larger for easier reading. Good price ,Good buy.
Summary: I bought one ... had it for a week and decided to get another one. They are side by side at my "command center" and produce vivid contrast If they last, I'll buy more. The price was very good.
Summary: My old monitor went out and didn't know what to buy. I talked to a computer person and they suggested the Acer brand. As I began my hunt, I decided to try this refurbished one. So far, I have had no problems with it. It was delivered earlier than I expected. Was easy to install and I love the new wider screen My experience could not have been better with this order.
Summary: I purchased several Acer S231 monitor from Amazon and from Microcenter about 2 years ago. Works great with both Mac and PC, used primarily for office work and software development, not for gaming or other video intensive usage. Highly recommend for normal usage.
Summary: This was a replacement one for a bad Dell that lasted only a year. So far it has worked excellent and the picture quality is great. It gets used about 5 hours every day. As any electrical device time will tell.
Summary: You cannot beat this deal. This is an excellent monitor for the price. It comes with VGA, DVI and HDMI connections and also all 3 cables. This is a steal of a deal. I am about to order a 2nd one.
Summary: Came in rather quickly, got everything I wanted and more. Came with VGA, HDMI, and DVI-D cable. I've had the monitor for over 3 weeks (and even set it up twice in 2 different rooms) and no problems. This is a good monitor and I recommend it to all who are looking for a good monitor of this size.
