It is a very good computer monitor.
This monitor has excellent picture display. I have had this monitor for a few years now and and the size is perfect for viewing two page in Office. Monitor is also bright and the speaker is also loud. On/off button is a bit hard to find in the dark, but not really a problem.his is a very nice monitor. We got 3 of them to replace an old Dell monitor and for two new PCs. It is bright and nice. The only issue I have is to switch input mode between VGA/DVI and HDMI. If you left the monitor to connect using HDMI. When switching to VGA, you need to get back to HDMI mode (with a monitor) in order to switch to the VGA mode.However, if you are not planning to hook up to multiple computers, it is not an issue.
This monitor is large, clear and a great value. I love Acer products and find this one to be no exception. It is large enough to see images very clearly and I have found this size to fit on my crowded desk while still providing a huge viewing area. Buy this one. You won't be disappointed.
Looks good on my desk12/3/2010
This product arrived in a timely fashion which is no surprise since I have been ordering from Buy.com for several years. The product works as advertised and was a good value for the money. The Acer was up and running in a matter of moments. I use it as a second monitor in Windows Vista to expand my desktop. I also use the monitor on my Linux machine. I switch often between Linux and Vista with no problems. I would purchase this product again.
Very Good Value11/15/2010
This is the second Acer monitor I have purchased. Great monitor at a good price. The first one I purchased over a year ago and it's still like the day it was new so I didn't hesitate to purchase another. No dead pixels and set up was a breeze.
