5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: Lightweight, great crisp picture, no dead pixels. Amazing price. Wish i could afford one more, for a dual screen setup!

Cons: Power button is kind of ugly. Sicks out like a sore thumb.

Other Thoughts: I got it for around $200. No regrets.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for price

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: The monitor looks great. Upgraded from a very old 21.5 inch I had. This is an amazing looking screen compared to the previous monitor I had. Without messing with the settings at all I am very pleased with the picture.

Cons: No HDMI and only 1920x1080 resolution.

Other Thoughts: With the low price I purchased the monitor for, the fact that it does not have HDMI or DP capability and the lower native resolution can easily be forgiven.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Monitors!

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: Bought 2 for an upcoming build around a month ago. Fast shipping, very fair price.

Setup was easy, only needed a flathead screwdriver, and both worked great right out of the box. I keep looking for dead pixels, but so far I've just found several bits of dust that have drifted onto the monitors since I set them up. Disappointing in a good way. As advertised the tilt is adjustable. Stands are nothing to write home about, but they are doing the job just fine on a standard desk and I have no reason to replace them. I'm not particularly picky with brightness/contrast/color, and I haven't had the need to sit at the desk for more than a few hours yet, so I haven't made any settings changes since setting them up. No complaints with the defaults though, everything looks awesome.

Cons: No HDMI input, needed a HDMI F / DVI M adapter to hook up to my laptop's second output in my temporary setup. Not necessary in most circumstances though.

Other Thoughts: Well done acer!

5 out of 5 eggsMassive

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: Good looking display. Really large on my desk. Works beautifully.

Cons: There is a single dead pixel. It's only noticable on a pure black screen, but like any flaw once you notice it you always see it. My friends can't see it even when I point it out.

Other Thoughts: Great display at a great price. Couldn't be happier with my new display.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the $$$ (if on sale)

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: Got it on sale. Good buy for the price. The size is great, and so is the slim bezel. It's also extremely bright, as other reviewers have mentioned. The stand is a bit flimsy, and mine seems to wanna lean to the left a little, especially when you attempt to adjust the settings, which causes it to lean to the left due to the flimsy stand(the neck portion of the stand is separate from the X shaped foot, and I believe the neck portion has too much play where it connects to the LCD itself). But, I purchased a desktop VESA mount for it, so the flimsy stand won't be an issue for me, but might be for you.

Overall for the money, if you catch this one on sale it seems like a good buy. The colors do appear slightly washed out, as other reviews have mentioned. But I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for". So considering the price and size, not to mention, the higher price of other LCDs this size category, I can't really complain about the colors looking "washed out", can I? lol

Also, I can't say I noticed the buzzing sound from the AC brick when lowering the brightness, that other reviewers have complained about. And I have this LCD in an acoustically treated recording studio, so if the buzz was there, I WOULD hear it. I have my brightness at 68. No buzz here. And mine didn't have any bad pixels, so YEAH!

Cons: My issues with this LCD are as such.
My particular LCD has a jammed adjustment button. The 5th button just before the power button doesn't "click" like the other 4 buttons. You literally have to hold the monitor still and press HARD on the 5th button which is the ^ button(up arrow). The other 4 buttons work fine. The click and are easy to press and use. That 5th button thought.. NIGHTMARE MODE [ON]. Makes it a REAL pain to adjust the settings. I basically have to use the down arrow (4th button) and continually cycle thru the settings. Although on some of the menus you CANT do that.

Other than that, and the lack of good color saturation/washed out look... I dunno.. The "e" acer color setting defaults; Non of them are really visually appealing to me. I had to create a customized settings to get this thing looking close to acceptable(which drove me INSANE with that 5th button being jammed). I can't see how anyone that does professional graphic design could use this for graphic work, and feel confident that they are seeing a trust worthy representation of the color scale. The contrast is good. The saturation is NOT.

Other than those things, its not a bad all around every day LCD for the cash. I paid 179 on sale. If you are not overly critical about color saturation, catch it on sale, and you get a good specimen, then I would say, go for it.

Other Thoughts: Because of the defective button on my first monitor, I figured I would just buy another, then send this one back. But the price went up 40 bucks since I purchase mine a week ago. So I called Newegg to see if they would price match me purchasing a replacement.

Instead of that, they are cross shipping me a replacement LCD, paying for return shipping on the defective LCD, and not charging me a penny!

THIS IS WHY I BUY ALL MY COMPUTER PARTS AT NEWEGG!

2 out of 5 eggsWashed Out Colors

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: It's large and cheap

Cons: The backlighting seems overly bright, leading the colors to be a bit cartoony and lacking saturation. I've tweaked it to the point where I can live with it, but overall I wish I'd either spent more money or gone for a smaller size with a higher quality screen.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: Size, Price, and overall look. I had an Acer 24" that I'm upgrading from and I like this one so much that I'm going to buy another. It looks a bit funny with a 27" next to a 24" monitor.

Cons: No HDMI port

5 out of 5 eggsLet me add...

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: This monitor also has some great features... You can set the color temp to Warm, Cold, & User, but the User option breaks it down even farther into Red, Blue, Green (similar to a television's settings). You can also adjust the brightness, contrast ratio, & a few other options. I'm starting to like this monitor more & more. Oh, and there's no backlight bleed around the edges like with my 24" Viewsonic monitor my son just broke! And being a CGI creator I'm really kind of happy about that... the blacks are truly black, all the way to the edge of the screen.

Cons: Not a one at this time. If this monitor lasts me 5 years I'll do a backflip. No I won't... I want it to last forever. lol

4 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: Easy, no frill monitor with decent color and brightness. I kind of like the blue led power button on the bottom right corner.

Cons: Not too sure about the 3000:1 contrast ratio, but if they say so...

Other Thoughts: Overall, this isn't a bad monitor. It's very lightweight so it feels a little cheap to me (and it actually was... 179 bucks on sale). Also, it's not much bigger than the 24" Viewsonic I just had to replace. So if you're coming from a 23" or 24" monitor, don't expect a lot in terms of size difference. If I can get about 5 years out of this monitor I'll be happy... lol

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G276HLGbd Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Bezel Monitor 300 cd/m2 3000:1

Pros: I bought this monitor while on sale last week. I'm a developer and was buying it for work, so didn't want to spend a fortune. Well, I'm blown away and sorely tempted to take this one home and bring in the Samsung I got the other year for way more than this costs! The screen is bright (I turned it down to 50% brightness), there's no sign of any issues and even on VGA it looked great. I also picked up a HDMI->DVI Cable, but even without that the screen was better than my former monitor.

As it's for work, and I'm primarily looking at development environments I wasn't looking for something great for gaming. I do play videos, although they tend to be development. They play great on this screen.

Cons: As another reviewer has mentioned, the further you turn the brightness down the more audible the buzz becomes. I believe it's coming from the power pack. for me, that's right behind the monitor, but there are other sounds in the office so I don't notice it. It's bearable unless you have great hearing and everything is really quiet.

I'll list no hdmi as a con, although it's not really a big one considering you can pick up a HDMI->DVI cable for about $6. Considering the savings you're making, it works out.

If you have a less than stable desk, this monitor is going to move when you type. I have a Samsung monitor at home, it has a plastic stand similar to this. When I start typing, the monitor starts shaking. Really annoying. I have two dell monitors that don't suffer that problem on the same desk. It's a minor minor con, and not worth dinking the monitor for.

Other Thoughts: So, my cons seemed to go on longer than my pros, but there are far more pros to this monitor. I love it and would buy another one in a heartbeat, even at the slightly higher price.
