Summary: Love it its a great monitor. The previous one I had was a hand me down from my family's computer. Then once I had a job saved money built my own computer I bought this monitor for it. And for the price its a really good modest sized monitor and it has speakers built in. Which made me really glad cause I didn't have to go search for one and add more extra time comparing which speaker I should buy.
Summary: I already done this once but here goes. The Item was delivered at the time promised also the quality is very good. The item was as describe on the Amazon site. I have been using this Item for some time and I'm very well satisfied.
Summary: I didn't buy mine from Amazon but I'm about to pick one up here shortly. I just wanted to express how much I love my Acer S231HL. I have a 4 monitor setup (only one of which is this Acer) but after owning this bad boy for almost 2 years I'm kicking the others to the curb. There has been zero degradation and I use my system heavily (between 60 and 80 hours a week) for work. The other three I have are (2 View Sonic and 1 Asus) which haven't had life altering problems..
Summary: First off, I did not buy this off Amazon. I bought this monitor about 7 months ago from staples. Got the first one home, opened it up and the screen was cracked. Went back and got another. Worked fine for a few months then would just shut off and I would have to unplug the power and plug it back in. This went on until today and now it wont even turn on. Buyer beware, would not recommend.
Conclusion: I wasn't expecting superior performance for the price, I will never make that mistake again. Even though this is a TN panel display, it is blisteringly fast! Great 5ms response time is great. I would recommend! :D Thanks Novatech!
Conclusion: A great monitor for the price, I was unsure at first but as the model I wanted was out of stock I decided to buy this one, at this price point my expectations were fairly low but in my opinion this is a very good all purpose monitor that is worth more than the asking price. No dead pixels and a DVI cable included too, only real complaint is the angle of input plugs, not great if desk space is at a premium.
