Summary: My HP w2408 was starting to get flaky after several years of use, and I decided to get a new monitor before it failed completely. After reading good reviews of this product, I jumped. In many respects the specs of this monitor were better than the one I was replacing. What could I lose? What a disappointment! First off: no DVI ports? What's up with that? I thought it was analog VGA that was going away.
Summary: Great monitor. Very large, bright and crystal clear picture. The LED technology is amazing! Two HDMI inputs, no DVI. However it comes with a DVI to HDMI adapter. The specs: - 2 HDMI ports, VGA, and audio port. - Comes with 1 HDMI cable, 1 VGA chord, and audio cord. - 2 ms response time. - One speaker, which is located on the stand. - Menus keys are located on the stand. - Eco, power saving mode - Full 1900 x 1080p resolution I highly recommend.
How to solve 25 inch screen problem and stretch it up to 27 inches
31 January 2012
Summary: Addition to my earlier review: Acer Customer service solved the problem with the 25 inch screen size on the 27 inch screen. The adjustment has to be made through the Catalyst Control Center (ATI) that is on my and many other computers. You open up the Catalyst Control Center, click in top left corner on "Graphics" and select graphics and display, right click on the screen icon on the bottom (on my PC it also has a "1" on it) and select "configure",Click on scaling...
Summary: I'm a user experience/interaction designer. I work on a 15" Macbook Pro and I really like using this monitor to expand my workspace. The setup was very easy, the monitor is light and easy to position, it hardly takes up any space on my desk (leaving more room for my Wacom tablet), and the light is fantastic. I couldn't be happier and I don't think I'll ever buy myself an Apple display when you can get such a great product at 1/3 of the price.
Summary: The monitor works well, but it is at the high end in size for the resolution. I wouldn't recommend getting a monitor larger than 27-inches for 1080p, as the near end of the normal viewing for a monitor makes the pixels visible. The unit is very light and easily carried with a single hand. While some reviewers indicated the stand had issues, ours was perfect, as was the monitor alignment.
Summary: Works straight out of the box! No dead pixels, runs cold. Colors are vivid and crisp. Primary use for me is CS5 photo editing as secondary monitor. The monitor is super thin and light, maybe a bit too light and wobbly if you are planning on using one of these on a boat. Connection via HDMI is painless. No screen resizing was necessary on my end. Like I said, worked right out of the box. I might get a second one now.
Summary: First of all, I have to say "no" to those 2 people who rated 1 star, I read almost every single review before i purchase this monitor (27 inch), I was about to connect both my PC and XBOX on to this computer, so after i read 1 of the 1 star review which stating that have major problem for switching, i was hesitating, but after readingr some 5 stars review, i made a great decision.
