The sleek, black Acer AL1717 is beautiful even turned off. This 17" LCD monitor is a testament to Acer's monitor design expertise. A compact footprint frees up workspace, and still gives you a great sized Window on your virtual world. Brilliant image quality with 300cd/m2 brightness and up to 16.7 million colors and an 800:1 contrast ratio will open up new Vistas!

Almost invisible, the two built in speakers will bring the sounds home. The 160-degree viewing angle lets you show your whole workgroup what you're up to (if you want to . . .). Once again, Acer has produced a spectacular monitor at a great value! With all of this it’s easy to think of it in terms of the overpriced high-end monitors . . . but don't bother. Give Acer a try, you'll be more than pleased!

5 out of 5 eggsAcers Rock!

Pros: Absolutely wonderful crystalbrite screens are what Acer is known for. The pixels stay lively and the screens are easy to keep clean. I wipe mine down with a dry cloth once a week and it keeps it looking sweet. I have awkardly positioned blind spots so it's hard for me to game..this screen eliminates the problem for myself at least. It gives me a crisp, clean picture even after two years of continuous use. I'm definitely buying another!

Cons: The screen gives wonderful resolution inside, but in bright sunlight (say through a window) tends to blank out the screen, meaning I can't see what's onscreen no matter how bright the resolution is set. That's the only drawback to this screen.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy that acer is available on the open market for those of us building or upgrading our own pc's. My eyesight troubles make it difficult for me to read a computer screen and acer's technology is clear enough that I can now attend college for my degree without having to pay a lot of money for a magnified screen like I originally did. It's also opened up the world of pc gaming to me and i'm a very hard-core gamer!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor, Bad Cable

Pros: The monitor itself is bright and has good response rate, etc. Color and text look great. This is not as nice as my Hxxxs G. 19 inch or my HP, but very adequate for gaming or other regular computing needs. Good price.

Cons: I did not believe previous reviews regarding the DVI cable, but after plugging it in and using it the color on the screen was really blue, but looked crisp otherwise. Plugged in the VGA cable and it works perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why Acer bothers to give you a DVI cable that does not function properly. Just don't include the cable then I would not be so angry about having to buy a DVI cable.

5 out of 5 eggsAcer AL1717FBD 17" monitor

Pros: I received the monitor within 48 hours, and find it flawless. The colors are extraordinarily vivid, the screen is uniformly bright, and I cannot find a single bad pixel. Setup was straightforward. No power adapter is needed. A single DVI-D cable suffices (supplied with monitor). The stand usurps a small footprint yet provides good stability.

Cons: Acer competently packages the monitor, but simply throws it into an oversize box and loosely stuffs some crumpled brown paper. Considering how much violence the Acer box sustained in the 800 mile ground trek from Fresno to Portland, I am surprised the monitor arrived undamaged. Documentation could be better. For instance, the User Manual does not define 'OSD', which Google defines as 'On Sceen Display'. The setup instructions specify VGA cable connection, but this is unnecessary for computers with DVI-D ports. I assume this monitor is 'HDCP' compliant, but the specs are silent on this issue, so I don't know if the monitor will display BluRay videos.

Other Thoughts: I was somewhat apprehensive ordering this monitor, because Acer reputedly purchases 'B' grade LCD panels. Sony purchases 'A' grade panels. I replaced a 15" Sony LCD monitor that served me well for 7 years. I was delighted to receive a perfectly functioning, flawless Acer monitor. This is an excellent product, which I unreservedly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor, Good Price

Pros: Monitor arrived with no dead or stuck pixels. Setup was quick and easy. It replaced an old 17 inch CRT for my wifes computer and she loves it. No problems.

Cons: DVI-D cord was dead on arrival. Montior is great with analog connection from an adapter on the video card, but would have liked to try it on digital. Will just have to buy a cord to do that.

Other Thoughts: Superb service from Newegg, as usual.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great colors. Very sharp image. No bad pixels. Speakers are decent at normal volume (better then laptop speakers). Volume control for on-monitor speakers. Run GTA:SA on full settings and looks better then ever.

Cons: The stand for the leg is attached to the monitor. If you plan on using a wall-mount, the leg will be left hanging down (although the base is removable).

Other Thoughts: Great monitor. Not a single problem with it, I love it. I would definitely buy again.
