Cheap Multi-monitor setup

Timothy K., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: All of the cons aside i found it to be a good trade off for price/functionality. Where as the issues with the monitors can be real issues with some users for me they are not. A little ingenuity and work the problems with the monitor are no longer an issue and for the price you pay not a bad deal.
  • Pros: Monitors have a nice look to them and very vivid picture, Contrast ratio shows very white whites and the blacks are very black, Minimal color Bleed. brushed steel and black stands look very nice. the 6 MS response time isn't an issue and i cant tell a difference coming from my 2ms monitor these r...
  • Cons: Now for the cons, None of which are deal breakers for my current setup but are as follows: Minimal tilt adjustment Monitor screen is covered in Glass (would help with scratching i guess but can cause MASSIVE glare which is why i docked an egg) The built in speakers are really bad, to the point i ...

Acer S236HLtmjj

Michael L., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Summary: The offset base is a bit unusual, but does not distract too much from the aesthetics. The power brick is external. It is a on the end of budget IPS monitors and has features to match, but is a good value.
  • Pros: Good and consistent picture in usage for about 6 months in desktop web browsing and office activity. No dead pixels in that time. It is plenty bright and the default setting can be adjusted readily.
  • Cons: A minor con is that it does not have a DVI connection, but it has two HDMI and 1 D-sub. It also does not have VESA mounting capabilities.

Beautiful picture while it lasted

Jara W., Newegg
2 September 2014
  • Pros: I bout this monitor last year in November as part of a new rig I built, really good price, love the style of it, it's an IPS panel so the color is amazing....but....
  • Cons: I'm very disappointed to find out that many people are having the same issue as me, in that one of the sides (in my case, it was the left side), is now having display problems, and it's not even a year later. There's these strange lines running through the screen, discoloration, and now there's a...

  • Summary: This monitor may work for some but your taking a chance with your money.
  • Pros: While it worked it had a very good picture and color. 2 hdmi ports
  • Cons: after six months the right side of the monitor started to become discolored and had lines running through it. The stand was also quite wobbly.

masterpiece of digital amazingness

Carla S., Newegg
19 July 2014
  • Pros: Beautiful display! wonderful colors, and a nice quality of picture as well. But the best part- every side of the screen is suuuper slim and it makes it look amazingly bigger, and better, because your eyes arent drawn to any side panels! the base is really modern, and small as well.
  • Cons: I did have to change the image settings, color, brightness, contrast, etc. but i'd say everyone would have to, to fit their desires. it is pretty easy to customize, though

Nope

  • Pros: Very good and clear display, WHEN IT WORKED
  • Cons: The left side of the screen turned green while I was on the internet a few months after I got it. Sent it into acer, and they sent it back without fixing it. Not happy with Acer or this display.
