5 out of 5 eggsWow...

Pros: What a beautiful Screen at an awesome price. This monitor is a little smaller in height vs a standard 24" monitor but just awesomely wide. 3 layout pages wide. Colors look great and I see no dead pixels.

Cons: Im getting a flashing on my PS4 where the screen goes black intermittently. This doesn't happen with my computer connection though. Ive googled around and its either the HDCP or Deep color setting on the PS4. I will try setting them off when I get home. Im impressed with the quality though!!!

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Great quality screen, bright, vibrant colors, great viewing angels and no dead pixels.

Cons: I already want a 32in, but that's just me being crazy. Another con is that you'll want to spend more money on another one just like it.

Other Thoughts: Overall I feel satisfied about my decision to buy this monitor. I was on a 24in 1080x1920 and while I was happy with it I wanted to get something bigger and with better display for gaming. This machine is a beast, even when it's off it looks great on the desk. Thanks to Acer for a good first experience with these UltraWide monitors.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 29" Ultrawide Monitor for the price

Pros: Adjusts height, tilt, swivel and pivot
4 port USB 3.0 hub, charges devices w/o the power on
Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture, even from another source
Comes with all cables needed for input
VESA mounting
Perfect for gaming of all genres
Two monitor experience without the bezels in the middle

Cons: Minor color shift when viewed off center
Speakers are very tinny, and far away.

Other Thoughts: This is the best 29" ultrawide monitor, compared to the others in it's price range. I got it on sale for nearly half of it's retail price. It has all four adjustments that one would look for including height, tilt, swivel and pivot. It has a VESA mount. You can do Picture-in-Picture in four corners, at two different sizes. It also has Picture-by-Picture, but unless the source is a 4:3 ratio, doing so squishes both sources. It even has a four port USB 3.0 hub that the other monitors do not.

The colors are bright and sharp. I even keep it on Eco mode to turn down the brightness and it still looks good. There is some color shift if you look off center. For instance the Newegg website has the tan margins. If looked at around 45 degrees of center, the color turns grey. But why would I look at a monitor off center anyways?

Acer includes all the cables for the different inputs, in case you don't have one, such as a Displayport cable that I didn't have. You can hook up four different sources, one a DVI, one a Displayport and two HDMI sources. I have the GPU using the Displayport and HDMI. I have the HDMI disabled in the nVidia control panel, but I can enable it and use it as an expanded desktop, you know just because. I just switch inputs to view it or show it as PiP. I also have a Chromecast in the second HDMI input and use that in PiP or PbP. Just note that PiP cannot be moved around freely.

The base is nice and heavy, with a textured front half and even a magnetized corner for paperclips. I use it to stick my pen there on the metallic pen clip.

8ms doesn't affect gaming for me, as I can't see any lag whatsoever. All my games so far recognizes it as a 2560 x 1080 monitor, including GTA V and The Witcher 3. The GTX 970 does have a little hit powering the ultrawide, as FPS drops by about 5-10 frames versus 1920 x 1080. You can switch to a lower resolution, and most games will just show black bars on the sides in fullscreen mode. Splintercell: Blacklist does need a little tweaking otherwise things get stretched or squished, depending on the screen ratio you choose in the settings.

All in all, I would recommend this monitor over AOC, ASUS, LG or Dell's offerings. If you can catch this on sale, like around the $300 -$350, jump on it.

5 out of 5 eggs21:9 Monitor Goodness

Pros: * Solid color reproduction and contrast
* 21:9 is excellent for productivity (games and movies too!)
* Lots of input choices
* Priced well ($315 at time of purchase)
* Decent stand
* 3 Year warranty

Cons: * Speakers are horrible
* Some color shift noticeable if viewed off center

Other Thoughts: Because my employer is cheap and has me using ancient and small monitors, I purchased one of these myself to increase my work experience.

First of all the monitor is well packaged. Comes with lots of input cables and overall offers a pretty attractive design. I use a 32" monitor at home, so the width did not wow me, but if you are not used to it large monitors, it will feel big. The vertical height hair more than as a 20" that I have mounted next to it.

Once plugged it, the color and brightness were so much better than the old HP L2045's I have at work. The Acer is much brighter with truer whites and more vibrant colors. I tested some movies in 21:9 like Big Hero 6 and they looked amazing. The experience is really fantastic. Very little adjustments were needed to be made to get everything to my liking.

Before I brought the monitor into work, I did test it with a couple games at home. Dragons Age Inquisition was great in 21:9. I did not notice any ghosting. I did not try any fast twitch shooters, so I cannot comment on input lag, but I can say a light/moderate gaming experience was great.

While at work, the ultra wide presentation allows me a much easier time to actively work multiple applications at one all in my frontal field of view. My only complaint is that due to the width, there is some color shift present at the outside edges. If viewed right in the middle it is not real noticeable, but if off to one side, it becomes somewhat apparent, but it is not a deal breaker and is common with IPS panels.

The speakers that are built in are bad. Yes they reproduce sounds and usually on board speakers are not expected to be very good, so I am not going to fault them. Just do not expect them to impress, because they will not.

Overall I am pleased with the Acer B6 B296BL. At just over $300 it offers plenty of screen real estate, decent pixel density and a good viewing experience. The warranty is great, has a decent stand and is amazing for work or play.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted less than 1 year

Pros: Was a good deal at the time for less than 400$.

5 out of 5 eggsAcer B296 21:9 Ultrawide

Pros: Plug and play via HDMI under Windows, read Other thoughts if you are using a Mac. Clear picture and text, no problem whatsoever.

Cons: Not all games support this display. However, not a problem to me.

Other Thoughts: I am using Macbook Pro 13 Retina with bootcamp. Windows supports this resolution naturally via HDMI, but not OS X. Since Windows supports this resolution via HDMI, why not OS X, this is a software issue apparently. I did a search and found when you connect MBP to this monitor, OS X thinks this is a TV monitor so picture is great, not text. You need to overwrite OS X display settings. By searching patch-edid.rb on Google and follow the instruction to patch, then you get a beautiful display. I love this monitor, hope the price drops again, I will get a second one!

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good UPDATE

Pros: Matte / anti-glare bezel and screen make this monitor great for placement with a window behind. My window faces north and shines light from behind my desk and this monitor is perfect for viewing during the day unlike the glossy framed / or CRT monitors I have used in the past.

Cons: Vertical viewing angles are limited. Moving even 20 degrees up or down creates a glow effect.

Other Thoughts: I have this monitor mounted on a dual arm(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3C91F38190)
thingamajig. Horizontal viewing angles are pretty good. If you only intend to view this monitor from one position it should be okay but if you plan to sit and stand (and don't have an adjustable-height workstation) then this monitor will suck for you.
Color temperature and contrast are easily adjusted to match an adjacent monitor regardless of the brand because of the exceptional interface of this monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Very wide. Very bright. No dead pixels. Good viewing angles vertically and horizontally. USB 3.0 hub! Multiple input options. VESA mount option! Lightweight. Good physical buttons & softkey scheme. Comes with more cables than any monitor I've ever purchased.

Cons: Some bleed/contrast issues -not as good as my 24" ASUS ips monitor. viewing angles are stressed by the width of this monitor so unless I sit middle center I see glow in the corners. Only noticeable in very dark scenes or on a black desktop. Vertically it is still about 1/2" shorter than a 24" 16:9 monitor. :(

Other Thoughts: Totally worth $400. Not worth $600. Refresh rate is great for COD Ghosts. Game plays perfectly at 2560x1080. Games that don't support this resolution still play but with vertical bars on both sides. Movies delivered at 21:9 are memorizing! They are much larger than on a 24" 16:9 monitor (because of letterbox..) I have a 24" 16:9 and this mounted on a dual arm and I have 4 feet of desktop to work with.
