Summary: I bought this monitor for my home office in July of 2009 for $119 (there was a special $50 rebate from Acer at the time). I have very, very sensitive ears---and so my only complaint is that on certain settings (might be the photo view, I can't remember) there is a faint white-noise sound this monitor emits. When I go back to my custom settings, the noise goes away. All in all, I'm very pleased with this monitor as I've had ZERO "real" technical problems with it.
Summary: So I have bought two of these acer displays. One I bought on amazon, the other I bought on newegg. They were both about $150-$200 when purchased. The one purchased on newegg worked for about 1-1.5 years then suddenly started having the same issue everyone else reports. It would randomly go from on to sleep mode (not actually turning off as the light remained orange) and you would lose picture.
Great monitor if you can find it at a good used price!

Summary: Very nice monitor for the money especially if you buy it used. This is my second Acer X 233H 23" monitor! They were somewhat over priced brand new and they don't have the clarity of newer computer monitors today. It has VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs so it's very flexible on choosing which input to use. It's really just a good plug and play monitor so you really don't have to tinker around with the settings trying to make it look better.
Summary: This monitor is an excellent value - the right price point between performance for the money and overpaying for other brands. I have two set up now and they are simply amazing! The picture is excellent and the user adjustment controls easy to use. The HD resolutions (1920x1080) makes for excellent video quality. Simply a top-notch product. Probably the only negative mark is the stand.
Summary: I've worked with computers for over 23 years, and I've never seen this kind of problem. Seriously, I've probably had close to 500 crt's and lcd monitors, used daily by designers and engineers, and I've never had a monitor break down this soon with this kind of problem. One day I turned it on and a bright blue line showed up on the right side, top to bottom... (see my photo at the top in the customer images) Disappointed. I'm updating this review.
Summary: Well I've had mine for about 2 years and everything was ok until about a few weeks ago when vertical lines appeared on the right side of the screen. This monitor has pretty much sat in the same spot, has never been abused in any way, etc. It seems it is just not a good quality product. I'm still under the 3-year warranty so I'm debating on whether or not I want to ship it back.
Summary: I was looking for a reasonably inexpensive replacement for an old 21" CRT monitor for my media work station. After shopping around Amazon, I came across this gem. Yes, it was used, but it arrived in excellent condition, and in its original packaging. Its flat profile takes up so much less space than its predecessor that I now have room to work! I'm running it on a Power Mac G4 and it is functioning perfectly. I would certainly buy from this seller again! Thanks.
Summary: I really enjoy acer monitors. At first I was unsure of the name until I bought my first one from TigerDirect at such a good price and ever since then I was looking for another. Good build quality, the buttons are really clicky, deep blacks, and really dense pixel ratios. Can't really get better then that! Love my Acer X233H's maybe I'll get a third someday?
