Summary: We purchased this monitor to have dual monitor capability on our office computer. It works very well. It even has a brighter and crisper picture than the HP 19" monitor right next to it. It does, however, have one quirk that we wish would be different. The monitor does not raise or lower on the stand. So the height stays the same. While you can tilt the monitor forwards and backwards, that is all you can do. That's the only issue that we've had.
Summary: I needed a monitor after finding out the problem with my computer was the monitor and not the computer. This one was a good price compared to others I looked at. The only thing I did not like about it is the stand is too short and I had to put something under it to raise it up to a comfortable viewing level. I bought it online so I couldn't really tell how tall it was, but I can live with it being on top of my dictionary.
Summary: I had been using a 5-year-old monitor and was having problems seeing unless I increased the size. When I hooked up this monitor, I was amazed and realized I didn't need new glasses after all! The clarity of print, pictures, etc., is excellent. I also like the sleekness of the monitor. It takes up so much less room than the big, bulky ones. Even if you have an older computer and aren't buying a new one, treat yourself to this monitor.
Summary: I have owned this product for 18 months. Both the monitor and Acer computer are great products. I am totally satisfied with these items and would recommend them to anyone looking for quality and and great value.

Summary: I bought this Monitor from Amazon a few years back for about £100 which was quite a bargain for it back then. Firstly, I chose this monitor over other smiler priced and spec'ed ones for its styling. As the pictures show it has a little something about it rather than just being a plain ol' boring monitor which is accurately portrayed in the pictures of it. I use this monitor at resolution 1440x900 with windows 7.
