Fantastic 1920x1200 display for those on a budget, but beware manufacturing issues.
Pros: Awesome resolution for the money. Picture quality is very good in general, and the display brightness will make you giggle. I have it set to "0%" all the time and it's still more than bright enough. Comes with a USB hub (not actively powered, though) and the ability to tilt, swivel, pivot, height adjust, etc. The pencil tray on the base is a nice touch.
Cons: I do have some gripes, some insignificant, others SERIOUS.
Other Thoughts: Acer has done well where others have failed or given up. For some dumb reason, display manufacturers have colluded to phase out all display types that aren't the terrible "Full HD" 1080p 16:9 crɑp. Who wants to look at a 1920x1980 24-27" monitor? I can't even imagine how bad the pixel density is on those. Seriously, display resolutions haven't improved in ten years. I remember being able to pick up virtually any cheapo 15-21" CRT and run it at 1600x1200 at 75Hz without issue, giving an eye-poppingly good picture no problem. Now you're lucky to get 1600x900 or 1920x1080 on displays well over 20", which is an outrage to people who need higher resolution displays (1080P is NOT high resolution).

Great monitor with great colors
Pros: Great monitor with IPS panel for the price tag. Colors are vivid, screen is bright. 178 degree viewing angles are great - the picture on the screen and its colors remain the same when viewed from virtually any point in my room. Picture looks equally great whether I have the monitor in horizontal or vertical position.
Cons: I would note only 14ms response time, but if you don't do any gaming this isn't a problem.

Can't comment on Gaming
Pros: Acer bang for the buck
Cons: None in this comment
Other Thoughts: I'm still the first reviewer so I can keep talking. I meant to say I'm not a gamer so have no idea about screen shear due to the 14ms refresh spec. But I played Blood and Chrome at 1080p and it didn't shear. In fact, it looked better than on my 60" Samsung LED TV with BluRay dvd player. It looks so good, I'm going to sit here and watch it again. Man, it looks really fracking good! Six stars for this monitor.

Great 16:10 Monitor
Pros: I've never been the first to right a review. I feel special. The other pros are: 1920x1600 resolution, IPS, LED, thin bezel, all black, including buttons, unobtrusive brand logo and model name, bright, realistic color, square base with pen/pencil dish, straight arm in back with height lock, pivotable (is that a word?), display port along with DB15 and DVI ports for high end graphics rigs, and "no dead pixels". Why do people still say that? I've bought hundreds of monitors and never seen a dead pixel. Oh, it has speakers too. Hey, that's important if your setting up a business machine and need basic sound.
Cons: Only pivots one direction so if you want to put the buttons and logo on opposite sides in a dual landscape setup, you can't. Attaching the base was challenging. If you have less than a 100 IQ, you won't figure it out.
Other Thoughts: I just received two of these from Newegg at @249.00 each. What a bargain for 1920x1200 resolution. To tell with 1920 by 1080 monitors. Why do they produce so many at that resolution? I replaced a mixed pair of CFL backlit TFT panels, one running at 1600x1200 and the other at 1200x1024. Man, I've been suffering. I wanted the previous Acer model of 1920x1200 but they got discontinued right before I was going to order. But they were quickly replaced by these IPS versions for the same price. I'm glad I missed out on the previous ones. I admit, I love the Acer brand. It's the most bang for the buck. These monitors are solid and much better than other brands at twice the price. You can't go wrong getting these. Short of a 2560x1600 monitor that needs a special card for dual DVI, one of these gives you the next best amount of screen-estate. Two of them gives you a lot more screen-estate at half the price.
