3 out of 5 eggsGood entry-level 144hz offering

Pros: Newer generation TN panels have less noticeable color/gamma shift at normal viewing angles, this one is no exception. Comparing it to my ~2010 monitor was like night and day. Easily the best looking TN panel I've owned even before calibrating it.

144hz works well right out of the box on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs that I've tested.

For gaming and 3D modeling, this thing is ridiculously responsive. I switched out an old 60hz TN for this primarily for gaming and 3D modeling and going back to 60hz is painful as I use a secondary IPS panel for color-sensitive applications.

I never thought that 144hz would be useful for anything other than playing games but having used this monitor for creating maps with Hammer, using Carrera and various other 3D apps I can safely say that the extra frames make fine-tuned manipulation much easier. I really hope 144hz becomes the standard for all resolutions moving forward.

Cons: OSD is archaic and annoying. I have an old 22" 1680x1050 monitor from Acer and it's literally the same OSD plus the 3D features and ULMB.

Dual-link DVI is the only way to get 144hz. A displayport input would have been nice instead of the VGA input. I don't even own anything that can output VGA anymore.

Aesthetically the monitor is appalling in my opinion. The glossy black plastic, illuminated blue LED power button and orange accented stand are an awful mixture. Acer really needs to look to other manufacturers to improve their visual appeal. The power LED cannot be turned off either.

The PPI on this monitor is also pretty low. I'm coming from a 107 ppi 21.5" 1080p panel and the difference is pretty noticeable. I don't know how people deal with 1080p at 27 inches.

Other Thoughts: I can really only recommend this for gamers that play twitch shooters or RTSes. The 144hz refresh rate has limited use otherwise.

I don't have the equipment to try the 3D features so I didn't include that in my review.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Monitor

Pros: -Best buy for the price

-Play 3D game on this and you won't go back

Cons: -Not 27in

Other Thoughts: I wish I would've gone with a 27in after seeing my friend's the extra real estate is amazing and do not let others tell u 27in 1080P is pixelated. Have seen first hand unless your eyes are 6 inches from screen...

If you are buying just for 144fps and no 3D minimal improvement notice over 60fps....suggest thinking about IPS panel or 4K to me notice on games even fast twitch games is non-existant

5 out of 5 eggsVERY GR00T

Pros: Good monitor, perfect size.
144 hertz is a blessing from the sky.
24" I love my monitors long and wide. hehe

Cons: Colors were a bit washed out, and the monitor was also bright right out the box. These were easily fixed within 10 minutes.

Other Thoughts: Good for the money!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value, Minor Cons

Pros: This monitor, while a relatively low-end 144hz monitor, has been an absolute joy to use.

It came with no dead pixels and no other defects with the panel itself, and has been very easy on the eyes while gaming.

I play mainly CS:GO and Starcraft II and let me tell you that the refresh rate difference is extremely notable and this monitor does not skimp on the panel. And at the price of $200.00 when I bought it, you cannot beat that deal.

Cons: The stand is not adjustable. You can adjust tilt, but do not expect to be moving this side-to-side or up and down.

Mine very slightly is unbalanced to the left. I unscrewed the stand, made sure nothing was wrong, and re-installed. Still slightly not level.

Not the end of the world, hard to notice, but annoying as I'll get out when noticed.

I still would have bought it knowing this.

Other Thoughts: Overall this monitor does what it needs to do, provide its user with an enjoyable viewing experience and gamin experience.

While some parts of it are not exactly favorable, I do not regret my purchase, and I would recommend this product.

4 out of 5 eggsTerrible Shipping

Pros: I ordered this monitor because it was the cheapest 144Hz monitor I could find.
So far it has worked well.

Cons: The box that this monitor arrived in had many holes in it, and it looked like someone had tried to open it on one side. That was not the first issue though. When I put it together, the stand that it came with was extremely flimsy and wobbled around quite a bit. The stand was also not steady at all, and it rocked back and forth. This is a great monitor, but the stand is just super cheap and not to mention very ugly.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong, I might have just had a bad model, but this is a great monitor for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Gaming Monitor 144hz

Pros: Well I have had this for about a week now the shipping was great I was not home and they had came back on the same day when I had gotten home.

The Monitor was easy to put together, Good foam or whatever stuff inside and protects the monitor well, has multiple cables to attach to what you prefer and I had noticed that you can change the Refresh rate in the nvidia control panel to whatever you like, 60, 120, 144.
The monitor is good and has a native resolution of 1980x1080.

Cons: Something I did not really like about it is just the Angle the monitor stand itself is at. It is like a little bit tilted upward so unless you have a good chair you will probably have ocd. I don't think it is very adjustable too.

Other Thoughts: I'm a gamer myself and I would rate this monitor a 4/5 for the pricing and the quality it produces!

1 out of 5 eggsScreen starts flickering

Pros: This is the cheapest 120< monitor that ive found. Perfect for a FPS gamer like me. Comes from a brand I trust and for the first 5 months i've had this monitor it worked great. Flawless performance at 144hz rate and vibrant colors.

Cons: This monitor started flickering on me today 5/6/15 after I bought it on 12/1/14. Every few seconds your screen will flicker and come back to normal. Its very frustrating and I feel I didn't get the most from this monitor. Customer support seems to dodge the problem as well on the official forums.

Other Thoughts: Worked great for ~5 months, really wish I could have gotten some better customer service from acer regarding this problem.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Questions, Just Buy!

Pros: - 144hz
- larger than my last screen and this one is bigger but not overwhelming
- VERY bright out of the box, with a small adjustment perfect
- colors and contrast just pop out at you
- no dead pixels
- very very very responsive
- good price tag for the quality of this monitor
- 3D that i'll probably never use but it's nice having.

Cons: - my only one issue is that the buttons for the display to change settings have no indication of what button does what. Not really worth complaining because it takes 5 seconds to figure it out.

Other Thoughts: First thing you do. Go to your graphics card settings and go to the change resolution and make sure you choose 1920x1080p 144hz. I actually thought it was enabled at first because i saw 144hz selected in a different screen setting so it wasnt changed. The second you change it to 144hz even the smoothness and response of your mouse is completely noticeable. Went and tried a moba game and it was day and night with the difference. It's a whole new level of smooth and a lot more responsive. If you want to use photoshop and video editing get a 4k monitor, if you're a gamer get this and never look back.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this has more to do with shipping then anything else...i placed my order yesterday 4/16/15... i didnt pay for any fast shipping, stuck with egg saver, 4-7 days... HOWEVER, i just checked the site, and my order is out for delivery on 4/17/15, TODAY!!! SUBURB JOB NEWEGG!!! once again you have outdone yourselves... to anyone who thinks newegg has gone downhill, they are sorely mistaken, i bought like 2 grand worth of computer parts a month ago, and everything was completely good to go, no RMA's, everything was in perfect working order, now i get a brand new monitor in 1 day shipping when i didnt even pay for it... LOVING YOU GUYS!!! this is one satisfied customer, would never shop anywhere else for computer parts!

Cons: NONE!!!!

Other Thoughts: P.S- i just want to say thank you guys once again, once again you have completely outdone yourselves, and when the day comes that i do have an RMA, i will completely understand, and know that you will give me no problems sending it back and getting it fixed or returned in speedy fashion, ty so much NEWEGG, idk what i would do without you guys ;)
