Acer - Good budget monitor with lots of extras

Stanislaus K., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: I have 2 other favorite brands that i usually buy. Decided to take a chance on this one. The colors were washed out at first... to fix this I brought up the menu... used something like ECO-AUTO something settings (auto color profiles) and chose MOVIE MODE which made colors more vibrant and the...
  • Pros: Works Great and No Dead or Stuck Pixels. Picture looks nice. No motion blur playing Guild Wars 2. Has all cables included... you get DVI, VGA, and HDMI in the box! I used the HDMI cable on a new pc build with an Nvidia GTX 960 DX12 Video Card. No Problems.
  • Cons: On a dark black screen there is considerable light bleed on the right side of screen and slight light bleed on the left side of screen.

what a Steal.

Stephanie M., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Pros: This delivers exactly as advertised and newegg had this bad boy on sale for $130 i should have bought 2 because now i want to run dual monitors and the cheapest i can find it is $170.
  • Cons: i wish the monitor could tilt a bit more but that neither here nor there, i dont like where the power connector is located and the inputs i wish they were more centered, but thats not worth an egg i could that from the pictures.

Not very durable

Holly T., Newegg
24 February 2015
  • Summary: Paid extra money for rush processing and 3 day shipping. Almost took an entire week to get to me just from Tennessee to Ohio. Now returning it, it says to return to origin address (Tennessee) but has me shipping to CA for $32?! This is the last time I buy anything from Newegg.
  • Pros: Large Screen Light Weight All cables needed came with it
  • Cons: Black on white text looks horrible Start up takes a long time Stand is cheap and monitor wobbles No rotation and only minimal tilt Monitor never really shuts off all the way (amber light even when off)

Nice panel

Anonymous, Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Summary: Not bad for a TN panel. Seems to be holding up well.
  • Pros: - The inputs face the REAR and not the BOTTOM! Nice. I wish more monitors had this design. - Panel looks good. -Plug and play with DVI-D
  • Cons: -Very few adjustments -Proprietary (?) power supply. Not a standard power cable, anyway. -Not a very competitive price

Talk about Plug and Play!

Christopher R., Newegg
22 February 2015
  • Summary: It supports 3 refresh rates: 50, 59 and 60 hertz for those who want to know. Definitely recommend this monitor and am seriously contemplating purchasing a second.
  • Pros: Of course monitors are plug and play, but this one was perfect from the get go. I forgot monitors had settings for the first 3 or so months of using this monitor. Just plug it in and experience perfect picture quality with no dead pixels. I've had this for almost a year now and I regret nothing.
  • Cons: None.

Perfect

Becca B., Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Summary: I have a previous model of this same line Acer 23" HD monitor. Haven't had any problems with it in the 2 years I've had it, so I bought this one to (almost perfectly) match my existing monitor. Soon I will be buying a 3rd one so I can complete my eyefinity set up.
  • Pros: Great Picture, Low Price, 1080p
  • Cons: None yet.

Quality!

Carlos P., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: I want to get another one for some epic 1080p Dual Monitor Action!
  • Pros: 1080p 23" Monitor for Less than $200? Sold. Monitor is nice and Thin, Sturdy. You'll have to put the base together, but it is not that difficult. Made of Steel! Base is nice and Weighted. Does not seem that flimsy. This is a 1080p Monitor! Which means if you try to set your resolution to anything...
  • Cons: Wouldn't really say this was a Con, but it did look like it came in a used box, [no shipping box, just the Acer Box] but the Monitor is 100% new and functioning.

Great Monitor

JOHN L., Newegg
24 January 2015
  • Summary: Start up time is based on its energy saving so I get it, FOR THE TREES!
  • Pros: Its pretty great, I use it for gaming and such. Can't really give a detailed explanation on it's clarity, but for someone who works by looking at screens all day, this is nice on the eyes. Well built and had had have zero problems.
  • Cons: Only con I would say is start up time, but it's honestly negligible. Dual screened it next to an old Dell monitor with no HD capabilities, the dell wins on start up by about 2 seconds.
