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

5 out of 5 eggsStill working

Pros: I purchased this in 2008 and it's still functioning perfectly in 8/2014 and I use it quite often. I wrote this review as a little nod to Acer quality for this monitor.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood overall, needed repairs after 3 years.

Pros: Good picture quality and responsiveness, minimal screen tearing even with vertical sync turned off with high framerates. Plenty large for my needs, resolution is also perfectly fine.

Cons: After almost three years of fairly heavy use, I'd guess 8hrs a day on average, the inverter board died. I was able to find a replacement inverter board fairly easily, for a lot less than a new monitor.

I was able to repair this myself, but it's not something the average consumer could do themselves without a fair amount of familiarity with the internals of LCD displays.

Other Thoughts: Only knocked one egg off for the dead inverter board as 3 years of 8hrs+ a day on average is probably longer than most people would keep this before upgrading.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: No dead pixels, had to turn the brightness down. Setup was a snap. Have had to get accustomed to the size, need to turn my head to see the whole screen. <g>

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: My wife has been looking it over and wants one now.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value, good product, nice features

Pros: 2ms, 1920x1200, HDMI input, 92% NTSC color gamut

Has a "Wide Mode" where one can chose "Full", stretching the image to screen, "Aspect", stretching the image to screen but keeping the original aspect ratio, and "1:1" which does not scale the image at all.

Very noticeable improvement from a 17", and is very nice to multi-view with.

Cons: High gloss screen, just use in low light.
The menu is not perfect, but is easy to become acquainted with.

Other Thoughts: Supports up to 1920x1200 at 60Hz.
