4 out of 5 eggsGood everyday monitor

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: Monitor is "good" at just about every aspect of use. For sure, a workhorse. Great value when on sale.

Cons: Not "great" at anything in particular.

Other Thoughts: This is not a high end gaming monitor, nor is it advertised as such. You should not compare it to one. It is, however, an excellent monitor for surfing the internet and watching YouTube and movies and some light gaming.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid Acer G7. Terrible product.

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: None

Cons: The Acer G7 monitor failed on the 35th day. I have purchased computer equipment at a financial services firm for over 25 years and have never seen a product fail so soon. This was my first Acer product and definitely my last.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is a waste of time and money.

4 out of 5 eggsAcer G7 Series G227HQLbi

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: IPS, looks good,Price (99 dollars) replaces my Asus VH202T-P monitor that has OSD randomly popping up problem.

Cons: Does not work. Won't power up.

Other Thoughts: Thankfully I read reviews and decided not to attach non-removable base before testing. Newegg support was great, RMAd unit free shipping, no restocking fee. New monitor arrived in one week. Replacement monitor works great, I had to tweak settings with Nvidia control panel to my liking. Picture was slightly fuzzy and colors a little washed out. It looks excellent now.

2 out of 5 eggsFrustrated

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: Good picture

Cons: Unfortunately the OSD does not allow me to stretch the display to actually fit the monitor size. There is an OSD option that looks like it allows you to stretch the display, but all it does is let you set the OSD timeout time.

Basically, this is a 19" monitor with a nice 1" border around the entire screen.

Other Thoughts: They need to fix this

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Monitor for the Price

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: Cheap...REALLY cheap for an IPS panel monitor

Excellent color and picture reproduction as commended by IPS panel technology

The stand actually tilts

1/2 inch bezels, with the exception of the bottom beezel which is 1 inch, making it great for multi monitor setups.

Love the shiny black finish.

When you press a button...any button...to adjust the picture, a window pops up to show you what button you're pressing and what each button will do next if you press them. This is cool so you don't have to look behind (or in this case below) the monitor to see what buttons you're pressing. Plus I have these monitors in a very dark environment so that window helps out a lot.
This window doesn't apply to the pwr button as it is not needed. Just press underneath and a little to the right of the led to turn the monitor off/on or feel it as the power button is the button to the rightmost side of the monitor.

when you're trying to adjust the picture of the monitor, the adjustment window is off to the side and not in the middle of all the action so you can actually SEE the results of what you're adjusting.

The screen is quite bright. (can be both a pro and a con)

Cons: The major con and issue I have with this monitor is back-light bleed. It's not the worst but not the best either. From my point of view I think the degree of back-light bleed is below average for LCD screens. I can work with everything else on this list but this is something that's holding me back from giving it a 5 star review.
It appears to me that Acer intended this monitor for daytime and office use with a lot of light and I use these monitors in the dark. But if it's not too much effort for Acer to fix this issue and still give it a killer price tag, they should definitely do it.

Part of the stand is not removable once you install it on the monitor out of the box. This can be an issue if you wish to return it so I strongly suggest you TEST the monitor to see if it actually WORKS and if the picture does meet your standards BEFORE you install the stand.

The screens on these monitors do tend to glare as it says on the specifications tab. If this is an issue for you, I suggest getting an anti glare screen protector for these monitors. (minus 1 inch on the height of the screen protector as the bottom bezel on the monitor is not level with the rest of the screen)

Stand tilt friction is quite high making it hard for hairline adjustments and unfortunately it doesn't have a screw to adjust the friction. (may or may not matter to some of you)

Doesn't have height adjustment. (probably to cut costs and I don't need it, suitting me just fine)

No DVI or Displayport connections.
Acer probably also did this to cut costs. My guess is that their standard for this kind of monitors is that they need at least one analog signal port (VGA) and one digital signal port (HDMI).
If you need signal and you're running DVI on your output device, you can get an adapter for HDMI to DVI (or vice-versa depending on what kind of cable you're using) The other option that I know of is you can get an HDMI(male) to DVI (male) cable.
Since both the signals for HDMI and DVI are similar, you should be able to run the adapter/cable with no significant performance decrease. I run games using both options with my 3 monitor setup and they don't bottleneck the system performance.
I don't know enough about Displayport to say much but I bet you might be able to still use adapters and cables to daisy chain with these monitors. But depending on the cable design, cost, and what you're doing, it might be more of a hassle and expense then what it's worth.

Other Thoughts: As for the stand not being removable I unfortunately learned that from experience as one of my 3 monitors arrived DOA... but to add furthur insult to the injury I read the manual before assembling it and it even said "Stand is not removable once installed." Wasn't thinking that I may need to return one or more of them.

These monitor screens do tend to collect fingerprints and dust quite easily and they are not easy to come off with a rag as most rags can be damaging to the beautiful screen. (no sorry pre 21st century they're not the old glass tv screens anymore, the screen material is different synthetic material) This fact applies to almost every modern monitor and TV made on the market these days. If you want to learn how to properly clean your monitor, you can do some research on the web. Google can point you in the right direction if you ask the right questions.

4 out of 5 eggsgood for the price

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: First off is the price. I bought it at $99 and that in itself is nice for the size. It is great for gaming, and everyday use. Colors are vivid out of the box

Cons: Packing material was hard foam. And there is NO DISPLAY PORT OF DVI-I. I wanted that but HDMI works for this 1080p 60 HRz display.

Other Thoughts: If it had display port I would have given 5 stars, and bought 3

4 out of 5 eggsOverclocks 79hz great contrast

This review is from: Acer G7 Series G227HQLbi Black 21.5" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Tilt Adjustable LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 DCR 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: Got mine to overclock to 79hz with CRU. The contrast is great color reproduction is on par with many ips display and devices. No ghosting or issue with overclocking.

Cons: Definite tell its edge lit screen. NO dvi, speakers, adjustment, or vesa mount.

Other Thoughts: Could not stand my tn panel anymore so I O=('-'Q). I hate TN panels the washed out colors and the bad viewing angles. Almost like I have an eye disease (cloudiness) looking at the TN panels for long period of time.
