Exellent Quality

Bernard C., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Summary: This monitor arrived about a week ago, and I have absolutely been loving it. It doesn't seem like anyone has received the monitor DOA on newegg, so it MUST be good build quality. May collect dust and fingerprints, but that is why they invented cleaning cloths + wipes.
  • Pros: -Excellent Quality -Sturdy, doesn't wabble. -Easy on the eyes. -Excellent Picture. -No Backlight bleed. -Shiny and good looking -The anti-glare is not in your face, barely noticeable and doesn't distort the picture. - Comes with HDMI cable and others.
  • Cons: -The menu for the monitor is a little confusing to get along with, but once you get ahold of it, your good. - Like others have said, I believe the HDMI color is slightly washed out, but is easily fixed by getting an HDMI to VGA cables. - No built in audio, but that doesn't matter; its a monitor.

User Review

Zishan K., Newegg
12 March 2013
  • Summary: Those cons don't really count as cons for me as I dont really care about the start up time or the fact that you have to go into the menu in order to manually switch which input to display.
  • Pros: -Really thin -Futuristic design -Really Bright -Vivid colors -Matte display -LOW energy consumption
  • Cons: -When the monitor starts up it takes 2-4seconds which some people might not like -Auto detects input (takes 1-2 seconds) -To manually switch input you need to delve into unfriendly menu

Great, THIN, Stylish monitor!

Timothy M., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: All in all, this is a fantastic monitor! It has great picture quality and its look very stylish on my desk! Would definitely recommend it to someone who wants a sleek, modern, stylish monitor that will make others look twice! Very pleased!
  • Pros: -THIN, as soon as I opened the box, I was amazed at how thin the screen was! -Picture, great colors and dark blacks. Colors are vivid and can be customized in the menu to your liking. -Perfect size, 1080p provides plenty of room for movie watching or game playing. -Stylish, I choose this product ...
  • Cons: -No input button, Not really a problem but it would be nice to have. It auto detects the input rather than needing to hit a button. (Can be considered a pro). However, if you want to switch between input, you have to go into the menu and manually select it. If you only use 1 input then this won't...

VERY satisfied and pleased

Ryou R., Newegg
9 January 2013
  • Summary: I plan on grabbing another once my next check goes through, heck I might even grab 2 more for triple display. acer is doing a good job on their lcd's, I don't expect their quality to waver at all. ....If acer made a touchscreen version of this model for windows 8 that would be EPIC.
  • Pros: it works beautifully , so far no issues with it at all. it'll be perfect for my needs. very stylish, sleek and very clean design.
  • Cons: a word of warning, the backlight will most likely be cranked up all the way out of the box, so mind your distance when you power it on for the first time to configure it. I found that out the hard way, I nearly saw stars. >__< also, it can have a tendency to take its sweet time when you turn it o...

Great, except for washed out HDMI color

Emma B., Newegg
15 September 2012
  • Summary: If you need a VGA-based monitor, you will not be disappointed with this in the least. If you need an HDMI-based monitor, try another brand or be prepared to risk experimenting with cables and/or settings to see if you can do what I could not.
  • Pros: Packaging: It was well packaged, and most of the important surfaces were protected with plastic film. The surface of the monitor was not protected with film, just the foam sleeve. The surface was not harmed, though, and in their defense, I've only ever seen Dell cover screen surfaces with plastic...
  • Cons: Picture quality: Connecting from my Alienware laptop to the screen by the included HDMI cable produced washed-out colors. Granted, I don't have another HDMI cable to test whether or not it's the cable, but tweaking the settings such as color temp, contrast, brightness, or trying the autoadjust or...
