5 out of 5 eggsStill kicking.

Pros: I keep reading all these awesome builds people do with new monitors, but I bought this in 2006 or 2007 and this thing is still a beast. I'm not sure if I need to upgrade but I run this in 1900x1200 and have zero issues. Coloration is great, response time is great. TBH I'm more confused how to compare this to current gen monitors. Almost 20 years on a tech purchase and it's still king!

Cons: Bezel is a bit large, but everything was back then.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going...

Pros: This monitor was (and still is) one of the best tech purchases i've made over the years (and i'm a tech freak). Great colours, great contrast, a fast 2ms panel. I've had it since 2008 and it still works flawlessly (no dead/stuck pixels) and it has seen a lot of use.
Im replacing it with a 4K monitor but i'm kinda sad to be parting with this Acer monitor. Kudos to Acer for an great value on this one.

Cons: Stand is very basic....

5 out of 5 eggs4 of 4 units still going strong

Pros: I bought four of these monitors around 2008. All four are still going strong -- not a single problem whatsoever, despite eight or more hours of daily use, dozens of relocations, and maybe even a little abuse along the way.

About to retire these in favor of a newer Acer model (S277HK), but just wanted to give these P243W monitors their due homage. Well-done, Acer.

Cons: None worth mentioning.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Was Awesome

Pros: Bought my 24" P243WAid back in 2008 and just dropped and broke it last Sunday. R.I.P. It had great picture quality and no complaints from me at all. I probably would have kept it a few more years. I wish I didn't try to mount it on a Ergotron LX Desk Mount Arm by myself.

Just bought an Acer GN246HL to replace it.

Cons: It was quite heavy at over 15 lbs, but to be expected for it's age.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This has been my every day use screen since it was purchased around 07/08. It is as good as new.

Cons: If everything was built this good, companies wouldn't be able to sell anything new. No one would have a reason to upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

Pros: I bought this in 2008 and it's still running with zero issue or quality degrade. I just bought Acer G6 27" to replace it and upgrade or just put next to it, haven't decided yet.

Cons: None

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: I bought this for my dad around 2009/2010 to use with his work laptop when he was at home. He didn't use it much so boxed it up and put it in the garage. I rescued it this winter and had it shipped to me. It last about a week before it died. Great picture and crisp text.

Black and white flashes and then a white screen with multicolored horizontal lines starting at the top and making their way down to the bottom. Hope everyone else lasts longer.

Cons: Wish it had lasted me longer since I had just finally started using it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor!

Pros: 1920x1200, 24 inches and a great price.

Cons: Viewing Angle isn't magicl (tho pretty good).

Other Thoughts: I bought this 5 years ago and it's still going strong. I just bought the parts for a new PC and thought I would see if there was any monitors worth buying to replace this... and long story short there's not. Any screens with higher screen resolutions are still $1000+. There might be some screens better for photographers "near" this price range but I kind of doubt it. I won't be replacing this screen till it dies or a drasicly better screen comes out around the same price range.

5 out of 5 eggsVirtually Unparalleled Picture

Pros: The sharpness, vividness and richness of colour on this monitor for overall use is unmatched. For professional use, colour accuracy may not be up to par (as it's TFT) but over the last four years I have yet to witness better picture quality on a monitor in any computer store, Best Buy etc. The images on most of the monitors nowadays are more washed out, the lines and sharpness of pictures and games is nowhere near as crisp. In hindsight, I'm sad to see monitor quality go so far down the drain with the new 1920 x 1080 mass production.

1900x1200 resolution is fantastic, and the monitor's overall clarity is astounding. Text is very crisp and its ability to produce vivid images is fantastic.

I've even brought my whole PC and monitor to a friend's house to LAN and he has a $300 new Samsung LED and the picture on this Acer still blew it out of the water.

I am giving it such high praise because after four years of incredible service/use from this monitor, I've yet to see any consumer display monitor top it. When you begin to look at the expensive $400+ Dell Ultrasharps, things may get more interesting, but as far as average consumer purchases in retail stores go, no monitor stands a chance against the P243W.

Cons: Some noticeable ghosting.

Swivel is limited.

Other Thoughts: Shame they don't make these any more; Acer dropped the ball by not capitalizing on this unbelievable image quality and making newer monitors of this calibre.
