4 out of 5 eggsPretty good price for a pretty good monitor

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: The screen works great, in a lit room. Viewing angle and color richness are great for my needs.

Slim and sexy, like modern monitors do.

Tool-less install is nice.

Buttons are nice and squishy.

While it is the weakest link in my current PC build, I can't complain.

Cons: Now to complain.

The issues other users report, for me, really come out in a dark room.

That blue power light? Brighter than the sun. Viewing angle is, somehow worse (maybe in a lit room, I'm not so blinded by the brightness of the screen).

It's just so... bright.

Other Thoughts: Despite the fact that I bought it for a supposed $50 less than normal, it feels and performs like any other $100 monitor.

If you're looking at you standard 8-5 work monitor, they are probably about the same. Want it for a gaming rig that you just spent $1,500++ on? Go after that $400, high refresh rate, monitor that you really want.

2 out of 5 eggsIt works, but I expected better.

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: Great clarity. Very sharp

Low price

Cons: Horrible viewing angle.

The colors change depending on the angle you are viewing. This is VERY noticeable, and not good for graphics work.

Even staring straight on, I can see the color change gradient from top to bottom. Not good at all.

Bad stand design. The monitor doesn't fit into the stand. (if it does, then it is not clear how, and the instructions don't explain.) I have my monitor balancing on in the stand slot, and it wobbles when I touch it.

Other Thoughts: If you are low on funds, and you need something basic to get you by, this should hold you over.

If you do graphics work however, this monitor will frustrate you. It is hard to tell what the actual color is because it depends on what angle you view it. Just bringing my head up a few inches, or moving closer changes the colors. It is very noticeable.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's cheap but does the trick

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: Reliable, good color quality and contrast

Cons: Cheaply made, takes a long time to start up

Other Thoughts: I didn't need a fancy monitor for my mid-grade pc build, so this does the trick. But it's cheaply made- there's a bubble in the plastic at the bottom left of my screen, but it's not immediately visible unless you look closely. Overall, it's not a bad monitor for those who aren't OCD about color and such. Everything looks just fine to me.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh.

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: + Matte screen cuts down on glare
+ Inexpensive

Cons: - Bezel is fairly large
- Plastic body feels flimsy
- Not VESA mount compatible
- Backlight bleeding around edges of screen after a few months
- Power light on the front seems brighter than the sun in a dark room (I put black electrical tape over it)
- One of the two monitors I ordered has a stuck pixel in the upper-left quadrant (but oddly enough, it only shows up on black backgrounds)

Other Thoughts: Originally bought it at $160, would not buy again for that price - there are similar monitors at a similar price with more features. Would consider buying it again if it went on sale and I was on a tight budget.

4 out of 5 eggsGood monitor for price

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: Inexpensive, decent display after you fiddle with the brightness and contrast.

Cons: Not very adjustable, but you pay extra for that.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these for my wife and she is incredibly happy with them. I have not seen any of the issues everybody else has been complaining about with either of the two monitors. They were inexpensive and perfect for a dual monitor setup for work at home.

4 out of 5 eggsHappy Owner

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: A monitor should just work, otherwise why should I have to teach it. I have used with Macs, PCs, and composite video converter. Got it on sale and if I had to pay a little more probably would. No regrets.

Cons: Position is not adjustable or rotatable. Didn't need it to be though. Simple stand. Probably break if not kept on solid surface

Other Thoughts: I am older and have glasses but I can't find anything wrong. Met my expectations. :)

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Monitor

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor200 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (600:1) No - Retail

Pros: It looks great in a work environment. No dead or stuck pixels on arrival. Do not understand the other comments about limited viewing angle or inability to adjust the angle of the stand. Both are at or above average and I have been supporting LCD monitors since they were available. Maybe some people got defective screens and didn't realize it.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I watched some movies in office lighting and didn't see any problems. Maybe there would be problems if you want to use this monitor as a TV screen all the time and sit 8-10 feet away from it with your head tilted to the side. But this is a monitor, not a TV. They are not made the same or for the same purposes. My advice is if you want a TV, buy a TV. There is a reason they cost more. If you want this monitor for work and gaming at a desk, you will probably be fine with it.
