Don't be fooled with 1080p monitors

RM, Amazon
16 October 2009
  • Summary: Yeah, this monitor won't give you 1080p, but if you physically compared this screen with a 1080p 22", this monitor has More Screen Real-Estate! What does that mean? Just do the above. For some reason, manufacturers have been making the 1080p screens smaller in height while achieving the 1080p.

Overrated, even at this price

H. K. Suh, Amazon
14 October 2009
  • Summary: Just got the monitor and started tweaking the controls. One thing I noticed is that it is so much brighter than my cheaper AOC 2217V. I've set both contrast and brightness to 0 but still it's far too bright for my liking.

Ok but not impressed.

Chevy05, Amazon
14 October 2009
  • Summary: Purchased two monitors just before Christmas. One for me and one for my parents in which I was replacing two 17" monitors. First LCD screen for both of us. No dead pixels. No lag when playing racing games.

Inital high promise, but ultimately disappointing

DesertViking, Amazon
13 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought one of these in November 2007 from Circuit City. Three factors influenced my decision: attractive price, nice image, and (most importantly) a three-year warranty. I reasoned that, if the manufacturer was prepared to offer a three-year warranty, they must be confident of their product, and I...

Great Value Monitor

Simon Fraser, Amazon
12 October 2009
  • Summary: Works well, with one caveat. Don't even bother using the SVGA conector, the picture quality and stability was disappointing. Go with a DVI all digital connection and I think you'll be pretty happy with this monitor.

What more could you expect at this pricepoint?

A. Murray, Amazon
10 October 2009
  • Summary: To put this review in its proper context, we have to be honest up front: this is not a high-end monitor, nor does it purport to be. What it is, however, is a relatively large, well-performing monitor that is affordable for the masses. If ever there was "bang for the buck," this is it.

Very Good Deal

J. W. McReynolds, Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: I use this monitor for a home setup rather than work. The unit is very sharp with brilliant colors, and I mean really brilliant. It looks great at the native 1680 x 1050 resolution. The only negative is that colors are slightly darker toward the top of screen compared with the bottom.

Wow - I'm impressed!

Whitewater, Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: I've had this for several weeks now and this is the best monitor I've seen. But even more amazing is the price! I still can't believe the value. (Mind you, I bought a flat screen monitor in 1998 for $3000. How times have changed!) I have this hooked up to a new Mac Mini and couldn't be happier.

Acer 22" 1680x1050 Wide LCD X223WbD

Mark Mason, Amazon
7 October 2009
  • Summary: This LCD display is great. I liked it because of all the features, like DVI & VGA input. It is very flexible in what aspect ratios it can use, and was very vibrant in color. I have a dual monitor set up, and this Acer really rocks.

Good choice for the bucks.

Truth And Justice, Amazon
7 October 2009
  • Summary: This is a nice monitor with vivid, crisp color and image rendering. For best text rendering, you'll need to use higher screen resolutions. That being said, setup is simple and menu adjust-ability is quite complete.
