1 out of 5 eggsBig Mistake

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: inexpensive and newegg delivered quickly

Cons: The Acer image is badly washed out and the brightness and contract adjustments allow Very little adjustment. Good example is the vivid blue bar at the top of Internet Exp. On this Acer monitor it's sort of a pale blue. My 9 year old system running a VGA monitor is still operating head and shoulders better than this new Acer monitor.

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: I have 2 of these monitors and this one I specifically bought on here I have hooked up to a dvi. Not any distortion or discoloration throughout the use of both simple tasks to gaming heavily. It handles everything I need and want and more.

Cons: Honestly no cons I could find.

Other Thoughts: The only thing I would say is a slight warning to those who wish to purchase this product is be careful of the stand it comes with, it is fragile at first when setting up. After that it works just great.

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: Great quality great price and good for gaming and streaming. Power cables reach about half way across my room its unneeded but convenient. very thin and great response time. came packaged well and undamaged and with plenty of accessories. I do enjoy the settings and found a preset that makes the image better however it took alot of fiddling with it.
the stands are small and sturdy enough so i can fit keyboard and mouse wires around them and fit webcams and microphones aswell as chords for programming things like arduino.

Cons: bit of high contrast that i get at the right viewing angle however i fixed it with software for the display. the stands are a bit low for my liking and i cant really get a better mount due to the unique one they have (havent done alot of research though). No HDMI port so watch out for that. very little tiltability so if you sit up very high or low compared to your desk you might have trouble. I saw reviews bout light leaking through but i didnt get that yet.

Other Thoughts: great for the price wish i bought three however they take up a medium amount of desk space so make sure to have enough desk space if you get more than 1(seeing as you cant mount them using a standard mount for say Dell monitors unless acer has their equivalent) . very solid but i see some bad reviews so check out those people's stories and balance the good and bad before you buy

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: great price at 109 very thin!
almost so thin i thought i would break it while pluging in the dvi but thats the price of being thin.
great picture and nice color the 23inch is perfect
comes with all the cords too
stands at small and dont take up alot of space

Cons: dvi cords are a little short for running 3 monitors will have get a longer cord. nothing to knock an egg off for.

Other Thoughts: for the price 109.99 i picked up two of these they usually drop quite often so save the 20 bucks and wait for them to go on sell. I got 2 off these and my third one is a different monitor will be getting another one to have all matching ones

2 out of 5 eggsWow, the image quality is BAD

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: It does display things.

It's very thin, and fairly attractive.

Cons: Let me start out by saying that I'm not going to compare this monitor to far more expensive and fancier monitors, and give it a bad review for that reason.

Rather, I'm comparing this monitor to the numerous Acer G226HQLs that we have in our office. The G226 is a smaller version of the same monitor. They're in the same category as far as quality goes, and fall into the same price range.

We recently got a few of these G236es, and on all of them there is an absurdly bright bleed-through on the bottom of the screen. With some brightness adjustment, the top of the monitor can be made to appear black while the bottom matches the #6a6d7d which I'm displaying on the good quality IPS panel on my laptop. For those of you that don't know what I'm talking about, #6a6d7d is a surprisingly light shade of grey, as represented in hexadecimal color notation, as used in web development.

That's a VERY light shade of grey.

Also, no matter what combination of brightness/contrast I've tried (and between all the factory presets), images displayed on the screen are washed out and "overexposed" even at best.

Compare that to the cheaper and comparable G236HL sitting on the other side of my laptop and it's night and day. The smaller, cheaper Acer has a nearly imperceptible backlight gradient when displaying black, and images are quite crisp and show great contrast for a monitor of its class.

The vertical viewing angle on the G236 is also reprehensible. When viewed head-on, with my eye level at the middle/center of the screen about 24 inches away, the top of the screen shows noticeable luma inversion. When viewed head-on with my eye level about 4 inches above the top of the monitor (standard sitting-at-desk posture), the bottom becomes even MORE "overexposed" and washed out, while the top of the screen looks normal.

If I hunch over just right (or tilt the monitor back just right), there's a 2 degree [estimated] sweet spot. So if I never move my head, it looks somewhat OK. Except for the backlight bleed, of course.

Movies look horrible. Bright sitcom-y video looks passable, I guess. Pictures all look overexposed, particularly the farther down on the image you look.

I know it's possible that we just got a few bad units from the same lot, and that there are good versions of this monitor floating around. But as far as I'm concerned, consider the G226HQL. It's veritably the same display, just a couple of inches smaller, and it actually does look great for its price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor for its price

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: - Very thin and sleek design
- Bezels are small
- Sturdy (but non-adjustable) stand
- Sharp images

Cons: - Colors are a little washed out (compared to a more expensive Samsung 23" monitor I currently own).
- Stand isn't adjustable, it's locked at 90 degrees.
- Menus are hard to navigate.
- Assembly is difficult. It took a lot of force to put the monitor's base on, so much that I was worried I was going to break the screen. (Took off an egg for this)
- Doesn't have speakers (which is expected at this price point, anyway).

Other Thoughts: A great monitor for web browsing and watching videos. Gets the job done, and you can't beat the price.
