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 read the review because i was in the market for a new BIG monitor for my MacBook Pro. Saw several reviews that were mixed; some said it worked fine and others not so great. Took a risk and ordered it. After all it was only $300 and the Apple Cinema display is $900. Here's the scoop; works great at 1920 x 1080 on a wintel box but is limited to 1080p on the Mac. What's that mean? Your fonts are gonna look a bit fuzzy compared to a native resolution of 1920 x 1200. Why?
OK: the one I got was DOA, but ignoring that quibble...

Summary: I originally wrote a review for this monitor that was a 1-star rant because I got a defective unit. That really wasn't fair, especially since it was the first review, and I know Acer to be a decent company. So I'll start over again. In the store (Fry's), this monitor stood out from a crowd of about 30 large monitors, with its gorgeous, bright image. I liked it even more when I realized how cool it runs, how little power it uses, and how incredibly light it is.
Excerpt: L'Acer Full HD S273HL ha 27 pollici e ha un design innovativo. E' incredibilmente sottile, senza porte o controlli sul retro. E' collegato a un supporto a forma di L che ospita gli ingressi e i pulsanti del menu. Questo monitor sembra grande sulla scrivania di un addetto alla reception, ma il design ha ben poca utilità pratica. In realtà, ha poco in termini di funzionalità. Non c'è possibilità di renderlo girevole o regolarlo in altezza, e nessun hub USB.
