Cheap, and that's all.

Adnan S., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a low budget/quality monitor. It's plastic/flimsy but then again it's cheap so that is to be expected. Don't expect to spend more than an hour at a time sitting in front of this monitor because your eyes will hurt from the excessive light bleeding and blurry text.
  • Pros: It's cheap, light, cheap, thin, cheap, runs cool, cheap, and antiglare coating is almost unnoticeable.
  • Cons: Bright. Colors are way off. Settings menu is archaic. Flimsy construction.

OK for occasional use - not for a full workday

Darren Knowles, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: The contrast on this display is poor, making for eyestrain if reading or working with text for a whole day. I bought this for my home office but was disappointed. The contrast was not noticeably better than my old HP w22 display. Get an IPS screen if you need something to work on - that is what I did. Not much more expensive, and much deeper blacks.

Good price and resolution, but washed out colors, and bad viewing angles

R.S., Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: Let's start with the positives: -Nice resolution and pretty good contrast ratio -Lightweight and thin -LED backlight helps save on energy $$$ -Very affordable price Now the negatives: -The colors are very washed out and there are no good settings to fix it (even on the "warm" setting, the colors are far less vibrant than my previous 6 year old LCD) *updated*-The angle of the screen leans forward and is only adjustable using a 5/16 crescent wrench.

Good Monitor, Misleading Picture/No audio out

Technosonics, Amazon
8 January 2011
  • Summary: Pros: The monitor is great/quality is higher than most monitors in this price range Cons: Amazon shows a picture of the back of the monitor and shows an audio out but the model doesn't come with an audio out! The model that amazon puts as its main picture isn't the acutal model you'll be buying. The technical specs aren't very detailed and don't say if it does/doesn't have an audio out,so had to base the buy off the accuracy of the picture and guess it was a wrong one.

25% off these monitors I've purchased have an unfortunate fainting issue

Andrew Moore, Amazon
8 January 2011
  • Summary: These are pretty monitors, they're light, and they have excellent saturation, especially under the Graphics color profile... but so far 2 of the 8 that I've purchased for work have a problem with just "blanking out" to a black screen briefly. This happens when connected via VGA and DVI. Searching online, apparently a number of Acer monitors have a blanking out issue.

Acer Bildschirm

ewm28 "Vorstadtberliner", Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: Der Bildschirm an sich ist ganz auf die Bedürfnisse eines "Ab-und An Computerbenutzers" ausgerichtet die Farben stimmen das Bild erscheint natürlich alles in Allem eine gute Wahl. Nur ist mir das 19 V Netzteil kaputtgegangen und jetzt suche ich und suche und suche.....

Reichlich Pastik

S. Voßkühler "stephanvo", Amazon
7 July 2012
  • Summary: Als ich meinen 6 Jahren Dell-Monitor gegen dieses Modell ausgetauscht habe, fiel mir vor allem eines auf: der alte Monitor war ungleich schwerer und wertiger in der Verarbeitung. Aber man darf auch nur mit Einschränkungen meckern: der ungeheure Preisverfall bei Monitoren führt eben dazu, dass bei der Verarbeitung gespart wird.

Keine schönen Farben

Blublah, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: Acer S231HLBID 58,4 cm (23 Zoll) + An sich gutes Bild ohne offensichtliche Schwächen wie Lichthöfen, Flimmern oder Unschärfe + Kein Fiepsen, keine Pixelfehler + Auch für Spiele geeignet + Schicker und schmaler Rahmen, leicht -- Keine schönen Farben (selbst nach Stunden des probierens über das Monitormenü und den Grafikkarteneinstellungen war es mir unmöglich aus dem Monitor schöne Farben herauszuholen.
