3Just okay. Budget monitor, not recommended unless the features are what you need in your budget
By Alex
It's a good budget monitor if you just need one to do normal things. However, if you need a monitor that can display blacks well, this is NOT the monitor you'll want. You'll be frustrated with Photoshop or Painter trying to see what you're working on with darker colors. The bottom of the panel is the worst area for light bleed. I ended up just using my old matte TFT flat screen monitor by Acer. My old one isn't true HD, but the overall quality of the image ends up better than with this one. To be completely, humbly honest, I would rather work with a big CRT monitor on my desk than this monitor...alas, space does not allow. It looks good sitting there though, and it's good enough for those who need a low cost monitor with DVI / VGA. However, I would NOT recommend it to anyone I know, and certainly not for those who need to get work done. Even typing in Word was unpleasant enough for me to actually notice it was more unpleasant than usual to be writing a paper!! However, response time is good, no ghosting that I've noticed in my games and movies that I've watched.

Just adding here that now I have learned that the issue I have with this monitor is "IPS glow". I was shopping for a new monitor at Frys when I just had to research why so many had a white glow that makes the screen hard to see. I ended buying a non-IPS HD panel and am much happier with it. It was also cheaper than this one was.

4So far, so good
By S. Gray
This does just what I needed - using it as a second screen for both my work (PC) laptop and personal (Mac) laptop. - I can alternate between computers using an input selection button on the monitor, and if one computer is not running, the monitor will auto select over to the running machine.

The picture is clear and colorful, and it's a good size for both writing documents and doing Photoshop work. The only negatives I can think of would be the lack of HDMI connection and the inability to adjust the height. It is possible to tilt the monitor, though, which is helpful.

All in all, for the price, this works great for me.

5Great monitor!
By Mrs R.
I needed an additional monitor for work so I spend some time comparing a number of different monitors. After many hours of comparisons I decided to purchase this acer monitor. It was the right price, the right size and had all of the features that I was looking for.

The monitor came packaged nicely in a typical box that a monitor would come in. It had plenty of support so that it didn't break during shipping. It was very very easy to setup and only took a couple of minutes to get it up and running. It has a number of different adjustment features so that you can adjust the screen to your liking. The picture quality is great, nice and clear and easy to read. I am considering purchasing an additional monitor for work use as well and looking at buying this same monitor because it has worked so amazing for me. I would highly suggest this monitor for anyone in the market!!
