3 out of 5 eggsDark spots, Flat colours.

Pros: Well it's what I needed at the time and it's definitely stood its ground when it comes to a lot of things.
-Good picture quality
-Not reflective
-minimalist bezel
-good contrast ratio

Cons: Where to start.
First off, I paid full price at a best buy 2 years ago and didn't realize until i had photoshop installed and found out it was defective and outside the return period.
but that's my own fault and not a reason to dock stars.
-Dark spots appeared all across my screen, little tiny spots that are just slightly darker than everything else.
- The colours are amazingly flat, i can tell yellow white from white but often have a hard time telling other colours apart. things tend to blur together.
-A defective monitor went through several stages of testing and nobody noticed.

Other Thoughts: Honestly it was a good monitor when i needed it at first, but as I transitioned from gaming into art it didn't meet my needs at all.
Never had a problem with the UI tho.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Still works after years of use for playing video games, watching videos and doing Paint Tool SAI drawing for up to and sometimes more than 10 hours a day. Great vivid and sharp colors. HDMI outputs work great. No dead pixels. Ecstatic I've made the purchase when I did :)

Cons: The settings assessable through the buttons at the bottom are a bit hard to navigate around but that's a small price to pay for a good monitor considering I've maaaaaybe touched them 3-4 times in the last 3 years.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete scam of a warranty

Pros: Good picture, brightness levels.

Cons: When it breaks down from wear and tear, Acer refuses to repair their items because "products that contain evidence of rodent, insects, or their remains could pose a health hazard to our repair technicians and therefore cannot be repaired by the manufacturer."

Other Thoughts: If you have so much as a dead fly or insect in the case of your monitor, Acer will refuse to honor their warranty commitment. Apparently some sort of Creepshow roach swarm came out of the monitor, and the techs never wear gloves. Heaven help them if someone forgot to wipe the dust off of the monitor, they would refuse that as well, I'm sure.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good LED Monitor for Its Price

Pros: I bought two of these. The first one in 2011 with a manufacture date of 1/2011 and second in 2012 with a manufacture date of 7/2012. In 2011 I got this to replace my aging 5 year old primary monitor, Gateway FPD2185W (21" 1680x1050). On sale, this was a great bang for the buck: 23" 1080p LED with VGA, DVI, & HDMI inputs. The monitor is very thin and lightweight. It is very bright; the default brightness is a blindingly 100% and I toned it down afterwards. Though I had spare cables, the bundled VGA, DVI, and HDMI cables were a great bonus. 1080p videos look beautiful and I got plenty of screen real-estate for Windows. PS3 and XBox 360 play great via HDMI though the audio has to be set to the RCA cables.

Cons: Like others, I noticed screen is slightly "blueish" even at its warm setting. My old monitor looks more "redish" at its cool setting. I got used it over time and it doesn't bother me at all.

The stand isn't height-adjustable and is a bit wobbly at the slightest movement of the desk. I used a monitor arm and it looks a lot better as it floats above my desk.

The power on time is unnecessarily long: the 2011 monitor displays the Acer logo for 5 seconds. I thought that was annoying until seeing that the 2012 monitor shows the Acer logo and then the Energy Star logo for an unnecessary total of 15 seconds. Testing other brands at the store they power on a lot faster than the Acer brand monitors.

On the 2011 monitor there's a faint high pitched noise coming from the screen. I never noticed it due to the computer fans and it occurs when the screen has lots of text on a white background. Changing the brightness didn't make a difference. The 2012 monitor does not suffer this problem.

The function buttons and navigating around the menu aren't the most elegant things to use but it's not that hard to figure it out.

The faint pixel grid is and grainy texture of the screen is more noticeable on the 2012 monitor. It's okay viewing 20 inches away but I have to try to ignore it and get used to it.

Other Thoughts: As of review, the 2012 monitor is still my primary monitor and the 2011 is used sometimes as a second monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY. It keeps rebooting

Pros: Doesnt matter if you cant use it. See below.

Cons: If brightness is anything above 25%, after 2, 3 minute of power-on, this monitor keeps rebooting endlessly so its impossible to use it any further.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: I've had this monitor for almost 3 years (I bought it on 8/29/2012). and it's still trekking along despite using it for 10+ hours a day with daily activities to projects for my web designing and interface designing courses at college to watching movies and of course games with little details to extreme.

HDMI works like a charm, beautiful colors, no dead pixels, and extremely happy with this purchase. Especially since how long I've had it and it still hasn't died compared to some who wrote reviews here.

Cons: o Power button sometimes needs an extra push to turn on/off. Little hassle really, unless you're in a rush.
o Menu buttons near the power button are not easy to see which can be confusing.
o Navigation in the menu (tying with above) is quite bad.
o Stand is wobbly and fragile so if you have a shaky desk, may want to get one that is sturdy if you bump into yours a lot.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Great color out of box, pretty slim but stable base.

Cons: Monitor takes a little longer to turn on than I'm used to, nothing too annoying, especially if you never turn off your monitor.

3 out of 5 eggsNot so sure...

Pros: -Slim & light design
-Light is downward facing and unobtrusive.
-Multiple inputs on the back
-Comes with cables
-Power brick is very small
-Display is good after some tweaking.
-Runs nice and cool.

Cons: -Broke at the year and 6 month mark (wouldn't power on)
-Stand is flimsy and will wobble wight light weight of monitor
-Sometimes need to hit the power button two or three times for it to register a press.
-No auto select for inputs.
-Button location is hard to use and creates much difficulty in navigation.
-No headphone out or audio jacks period. (not expected but would be nice).

Other Thoughts: I used this monitor for exactly a year and eight months before it failed. This display is much touted in reviews, and I was very happy with it (save for a few niggles mentioned in the cons) but then one day it just didn't power up. The unit worked an hour before. I would not even get the orange standby light, however the power brick showed a green light.

I was forced to send this unit back under warranty (which is 3 years.) This process cost $40 on top of the original $149 I spent on it making it a $210 purchase after shipping and tax + 6 days+ downtime.

Obviously the manufacturer's warranty and solid reviews on this and other websites indicate that this display should not have failed when it did. Never the less, I would not purchase another Acer display when there are quality Sony, LG, Toshiba & Samsung monitors at affordable prices.
