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.
  • 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. Not aaa huge bother at first, seeing it was a secondary monitor....

Terrible quality

Anonymous, 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,...
  • 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 b...

I'm assuming they will work much better. Like other reviewers

NJPete76, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: I had this monitor for about 6 weeks, when the all of the buttons but one quit working. Now the Change input button somehow is acting as my power button. And that's all the functionality I have, I'm only able to turn it on or off.

Bad Product

calc996, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Had this monitor for less than a year and now it unexpectedly goes into a cycle of turning itself on and off every 2 seconds. A quick search on the internet suggested turning the brightness down on the monitor which helps a little; but nevertheless I deal with this issue every day.

Acer computer monitor

  • Summary: I purchased a Acer monitor. The screen went bad so contacted Acer for repair instructions. I sent back the monitor at my expense in the original packing & box. Approximately two weeks later I received it back. The bezel & back of monitor was all scratched.

Web Tipster, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: So I had purchased 4 of these monitors. A year later, two of them have failed where they show no signs of life. Basically there is no power to the monitor, the buttons don't work, you can switch out the power adapters, same thing.

Great monitor, great quality, great ports!

Ruben M., Amazon
1 August 2012
  • Summary: Love the array of ports available on the monitor, love the quality of the LED display. Couldn't ask for more from the price, and it's incredibly thin! Great purchase. EDIT: After some time with the monitor, I've come to notice the screen is EXTREMELY washed out compared to my laptop that sits next...

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.
