Great Monitor

Craig M., Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Summary: The software that comes with the monitor for managing color adjustment is bad. Use windows or you'r graphic cards to adjust. Will Take some time tweaking to get the colors right and brightness so its not washing out, but in the end the picture looked so good i really didnt mind.
  • Pros: LED, 27'', Great Colors, 2 ms response, low power.
  • Cons: Speakers, no monitor ever comes with good speakers. Only used for notification purposes. Viewing angles kinda limited from side to side, but monitors are meant to be in front of. No vesa mounts I knew about all the cons before i bought so they werent a factor for me.

Great monitor

Mark N., Newegg
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I'm sure there are better LED/LCD's out there, but overall you can't go wrong with the price on this Acer.
  • Pros: Rich deep colors, extremely bright. Fast response time. Nicely made stand with LED illuminated push buttons for ease of use. 1080p will make your games come alive in ways you couldn't imagine.
  • Cons: Menu selection buttons are a bit muddled, and the video setting presets are poorly calibrated. I would strongly suggest users custom configure the monitor to suit their personal tastes. Once you get it set to where you like it, there's not much to complain about. In my opinion it was a minor inco...

a great buy

skyKipz.com, Newegg
17 February 2012
  • Summary: I got this for my new gaming rig and the size and quality for the price were just unbeatable when i ordered it, i'm very glad it turned out as good as i was hoping!
  • Pros: This monitor was everything i was hoping it would be. Crystal clear screen, no dead pixels on arrival, packaging was great (the delivery guy accidently dropped it in my lawn, I almost had a heart attack but it turned out fine.)
  • Cons: I suppose the only con would be the low quality speakers, but it's not what i bought this for so doesn't really take an egg away for me.

Great Monitor

Richard T., Newegg
7 February 2012
  • Summary: I liked it enough to write a positive review about it, if that says anything. I think Acer should remove the speaker and reduce the price of monitor just a titch.
  • Pros: I'm no expert in monitors but this is one of the better monitors I have used and hands down the best I have ever owned. Price to performance it's hard to beat. I liked it so much I just purchased another Acer monitor (Acer B243HLbmdrz Black). Slightly lower Contrast ratio and a 5ms response but I...
  • Cons: The speaker is terrible, I actually laughed a little when I used it the first time. The speaker though, was not an issue for me, I use a headset or Bose computer speakers for all my audio needs.

WONDERFUL Monitor!

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2012
  • Pros: I ordered two of these monitors, one for me and one for the wife to replace two aging Samsung 226bw 22" LCD monitors. Neither monitor had any stuck/dead pixels, and they both have extremely vibrant colors with wonderful contrast! Initial power-up will melt your eyes out of the sockets with the br...
  • Cons: The only con would be the speaker, but honestly...who buys these for the speakers? I've never owned a monitor with a built-in speaker that sounded very good, and I'm not going to dock an egg for it :)

Great monitor, terrible service

Erik N., Newegg
8 January 2012
  • Summary: TERRIBLE Acer customer service. My first unit arrived with a flickering backlight that died within the first hour of use. I contacted customer support and was informed that while it was indeed under warranty, I would have to pay $50 in shipping out of pocket because 'We don't cover shipping on 25"+...
  • Pros: Beautiful monitor. Crisp details, great brightness and intensity. Ergonomically satisfying with a lot of visual appeal.
  • Cons: Colors feel a bit washed out and lack the intensity that my stock laptop monitor has.

User fail shouldn't equal a bad review

Eric K., Newegg
2 November 2011
  • Summary: The mouse click input management is cool, but I have only gotten it to work on the HDMI (aka, digital input as it's named in the software) and NOT on the VGA side (I installed the software on my work laptop so I could toggle between it and my home PC, but alas, it doesn't allow you to toggle back to...
  • Pros: LED screen equals easier on the eyes and wallet (more efficient) than old LCD panels. Sleek design. 2X HDMI. In this price range, the 27" screen size, being LED, and 2X HDMI is unbeatable... which is why I bought it basically. Duh right?
  • Cons: There are really only 3 legitimate gripes anyone could make with this monitor, and if you're complaining about a black border or flicker or bad colors (according to your own eyes) that's USER FAIL (it's either your graphics card can't output 1920X1080, your card adjustment software in which you h...

User Review

THAI V., Newegg
29 October 2011
  • Summary: Obvious bang for the buck here, especially at this time versus other screens out there. The design and LED tech sold me, but dont let the bad reviews scare you away. I can only see dissatisfaction in this monitor if you get a bad one with a dead pixel or something malfunctions, but seriously it's a...
  • Pros: Colors, contrast, and brightness on this screen exceeded my expectations. I'm buying this screen for the sole purpose of gaming, for which I've read on some sites to be sub-par due to ghosting although I myself have not noticed anything wrong. I'm no superhuman so maybe I'm not keen enough to pic...
  • Cons: As with most monitors, it just seems like using the built-in controls are a lost cause - this seems to be the case here, but I haven't really messed around with them to make a final judgement call. Everything is fine right out of the box though so adjustments weren't necessary in my case. The bui...

Big, beautiful, sharp.

Nathan O., Newegg
25 October 2011
  • Summary: All of you other reviewers giving it less than 5 star because of features of this monitor NOT based on the screen and picture quality, should be taken down. When I'm reading reviews trying to make a decision and see NOTHING about the actual picture in a 1 star review drives me crazy!
  • Pros: Amazing size and image quality for the price
  • Cons: For the size, can only do 1920 x 1080
