Monitor did not last

Jamie M., Newegg
20 August 2012
  • Summary: I will not be buying Acer products any more, they have weak products and there carry in warranty makes the customer pay for shipping during repair. I am not happy with this manufacturer or product.
  • Pros: This monitor looks good and worked well for a while. Easy to use and configure.
  • Cons: I have had this monitor for 3 years now and I have had it in the Acer shop twice, these monitors have a weak inverter. They have replaced the inverter twice in 3 years and now this thing is dead again and since Acer does not warranty beyond the 3 years from original purchase date I am now looking...

Poor Quality

Travis M., Newegg
24 August 2009
  • Summary: If I had ordered the monitor for myself, I would have returned it immediately and purchased something else. But seeing as it was for a build for my girlfriend and she's fine with the flickering/purple pixel, it's a keeper unless something more serious crops up.
  • Pros: Met my original criteria: Cheap and runs 1440x900 @ 75 Hz.
  • Cons: Came with what is apparently a single burnt-in pixel, stuck on a bright purple color (0xFF00FF, give or take) a few inches from the bottom right corner. Flickering horizontal stripes are very visible when displaying mostly dark images with a few bright spots, even at 75 Hz. Most noticeable playin...

M. D. Hinds "MH", Amazon

  • Summary: Acer 19" Wide-Screen LCD Monitor - Black (X193WB) Reasonably cheap, average picture quality. Fits what I was looking for - cheap and you get what you pay for.
