Summary: You may consider NOT installing the CD that comes with the monitor. As I understand it, it's really not a driver but a setting's management app. called "ADM". I was able to get the (analog) driver off Acers' support page which is easy to navigate.
Pros: This is a great monitor. Excellent color/contrast/resolution for the specs and price called for. Just amazing how bright LED LCDs are now. Brightness enough to shoot lasers through your retina, so I turned it way down. Would be great for daylight viewing, too. Figuring out the aspect ratio and fe...
Cons: Not a problem, but I was a little surprised the only speed offered was 60 Hz, but that might be in my card and/or lack of understanding LCD technology. I'm coming from a 19" CRT (4:3 AR) that finally failed so LCD is a real treat and can find nothing wrong with this product. And 60 Hz works great...
Summary: This does not have an adjustable stand. I do like the broad base though. Provides better stability. But I went to a local store and bought a plastic mini 3 Drawer Unit. Seven inches high. Perfect fit for the monitor's base and to bring it to a comfortable eye level and you get storage to boot.
Pros: I own one of these already from a previous now discontinued stock. New stock new products numbers I guess. But thats not the issue. This is great for gaming and internet videos. Clear sharp pictures.
Cons: One stuck pixel. Tried to unstick with options I researched on web but to no avail. Thought it would be annoying and it was at first. After awhile I dont notice it anymore. This was like my sixth Acer monitor I have bought. And all the others were perfect.
Summary: Highly recommend this display, it's the absolute best bang for the buck!
Pros: This monitor is simply superb, it's wonderfully bright, has very deep black levels, and beautiful white levels, minimal backlight bleeding. The viewing angles are excellent even for a TN panel. The rated response time says 5ms, but it looks closer to 2ms to me. I can't say enough about it. This i...
Cons: While the built-in speakers are very clean and crisp sounding, they are not very loud, and lack bass, but I don't need to listen to anything loud and booming anyway hence why I didn't subtract an egg for it
Summary: Quality seems good VGA, DVI, sound cables included Would buy another one but maybe without the speakers
Pros: 1680 x 1050 display No dead pixels Fairly intuitive display controls Colors seem OK - but I'm not using anything that requires color matching Blacks are black, pictures seem vivid, nothing washed out.
Summary: EXPERIENCE: First I would like to mention that I find Newegg's service to be unmatched by online standard. The fact that they have the best prices, and you can pay ground shipping, and get your package in 3 days, is just awesome!
Pros: Crisp Textures, Bright Colors, Large, Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Excellent For Gaming
