Dual Display

Ricardo L., Newegg
29 October 2009
  • Pros: Price is excellent. I purchased two of them and have setup dual display. Limited desk space and they fit nicely side by side. Windows 7 had drivers available once you run a windows update.
  • Cons: Not the best picture I have seen on LCD but for the price I can't complain. Would not purchase if you do a lot of graphics/photoshop.

Great for the price

  • Pros: It's an lcd monitor that works for cheap. Can't beat it for the price.
  • Cons: The color isn't perfect (I'm a nitpicky graphic designer, its not that bad), but it's about as good as you are going to get without dropping twice as much $. No HDMI.

  • Pros: No defective pixels. Color (measured using a colorimeter) is very close to sRGB. ... And cheap.
  • Cons: Measured brightness (1 1/2 weeks old) is about 250 cd/m², sufficiently bright for office settings, but lower than advertised. Default gamma is really high, about 2.54.

Hi res, not bad

Eric G., Newegg
16 September 2009
  • Pros: Slightly smaller size saves a bit of space on a cramped desk. Good quality and has most of the features you've come to expect in an LCD. Overall a good value at the low price paid, but it has made me consider looking at monitors that cost $50-$90 more for improved quality and features for next time.
  • Cons: Not as good of picture quality as our Acer X223Wbd, not as good of OSD menu system either. Was also more difficult to get it reasonably calibrated-- ended up using of of the generic RGB profiles instead of the custom calibration.

Eggcellent monitor!

Robert J., Newegg
2 September 2009
  • Summary: No dead pixels. As I said, this monitor was packaged well and I would attribute that to a safe arrival.
  • Pros: The color, resolution, and size of this monitor are all right on the money. This monitor is packaged well, and comes with both DVI and VGA cables.
  • Cons: The power button on mine appears to be stuck. If I push it as hard as I can, the monitor will come on. However, all the other buttons are very easy to push. This isn't really much of a problem for me, though. This monitor loses an egg for the ACER splash screen which takes about three seconds to ...

mostly awesome

Grace W., Newegg
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I mostly use this screen for gaming and movie watching, and it looks very good. If you're into digital art you might want to avoid this one because of the problem with grays.
  • Pros: High resolution, great color/contrast/brightness, fast response time, and a sturdy base. Overall a really sweet monitor for the price.
  • Cons: For some reason various shades of gray don't display correctly on this monitor. Most people probably wouldn't see it, though. I do graphic art and web design, and noticed that certain images (usually grays) look a few shades too light.

Great budget monitor

Patrick K., Newegg
6 August 2009
  • Pros: Great widescreen monitor with high resolution and decent price. DVI is a welcome upgrade from my previous VGA monitors. Picture is nice and sharp and the viewing angle is wide enough. Great for gaming
  • Cons: Contrast ratio could be better. Screen controls can be difficult to navigate with the awkward buttons. Screen doesn't tilt up and down very much.
