Good graphics bad text

John B., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Pros: Excellent when reproducing graphics. Lots of cables included.
  • Cons: Terrible on black on white text. It looks like the red "gun" is off just a bit. Impossible to adjust to crisp black text. Limited viewing angle.

Great Monitor if it works

David H., Newegg
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Have owned this monitor for a little over 2 years, and then it stopped turning on. Contacted ACER support, was informed of the 3 year warranty and that since the power supply isn't the issue to send it in and they would fix it. Sent the monitor in the first time and received it back with a new power supply.
  • Pros: Great monitor, like the colors and contrast with the LED back light
  • Cons: If you have any problems, getting support to fix anything is not going to happen

Broken contrast

Anonymous, Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Very frustrating overall, not pleased with this monitor
  • Pros: Looked ok at first Came with plenty of cables
  • Cons: At first, I noticed that the colors never really seamed right after I tried it with a few graphics cards, it always seamed to saturated, and when I tried to watch Skype share screens or any video files, they were always way to dark.

Terrible quality

Farhad L., Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Summary: All in all I would not recommend this monitor to anyone, be it for simple web surfing or gaming. I know that LCD black color reproduction is not the best compared to newer screen technology such as IPS but I had the expectation that it would at least be better than the monitor it was replacing, which it was not.
  • Pros: -Stand is solid -Super thin -Bright -Nice colors, although blacks were horrible (see cons below) -Comes with HDMI, VGA, and DVI cables
  • Cons: -Shipped in beat up Acer box with no extra newegg cover box or packing over it. When sending it back even the shipping guy at the store asked if I wanted them to put another box over it which I declined as I intended to send it back in the same way it was delivered to me. -Blacks look extremely bad on this monitor. They are extremely grey and suffer from excessive backlight bleed throughout, although some sections of the monitor do look marginally better than other se...

Geplante Obsoleszenz: Kaputt nach Ablauf der Gewährleistung

Newton, Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe diesen Monitor seit knapp über 2 Jahren. Bisher hat er einwandfrei funktioniert. Leider wird seit kurzer Zeit die linke Hälfte des Bildes meines Monitors von einem dicken roten, flackernden Streifen bedeckt. Der Monitor ist somit nicht mehr zu gebrauchen. Sehr auffällig ist, dass dieser Defekt 3 Monate nach Ablauf der Gewährleistung eingetreten ist.
