Poor quality monitor and poor customer service from Acer

Summary: I purchased 6 of these monitors about a year ago for our small business and all 6 are beginning to show an internal black smudge spot in the exact location in the lower right quadrant of the monitor. We contacted customer support and although these monitors are under warranty, they only offer return and repair which can take up to 15 days. This is unacceptable for a business as they should be shipping out replacements and then having us return the 6 defective monitors.
Summary: I have several of these monitors, and they are great. I love the small frame surrounding the Acer S243HL, and the stand/foot that don't need too much desk space. Easy to reach connectors, stable and reliable. Swift hazzle-free delivery - always on time, from both Amazon and Universal Mania Inc.
Nice looking modern display but with only 25 inch picture area ... bummer

Summary: Also just bought the product. This is my overall assessment ... Acer S273HL bmii 27" Full HD LED Monitor GOOD - Easy to set up: Out of the box it is easy to assemble and get up and running as it has an auto adjust function,and its easy to attach the loose arm (but remember to tighten he screw underneath otherwise it will lean to the left) - Good buy: Excellent price/quality relationship. A lot of bang for the buck.
Summary: I am an extremely experienced computer user. In my home I have two servers, five desktop computers, and six different monitors. I spend 8-12 hours a day on a computer and often have eyestrain by the end of the night. As a result I am always looking for a better monitor. This LED monitor is fantastic!!! I bought mine a few months ago and after just a week I noticed that my eyes felt better at night.
Summary: If you are thinking of buying this monitor because it has three inputs (1xVGA + 2xHDMI) like I did, think again. There is no input select button. To change the input, you have to navigate thru the OSD. All told, it takes 10 button presses to change the input - and if during that time your computer has turned off the display because there's no monitor signal (like my macbook does) then the monitor will just revert back to the original input *and* close the OSD.
