4 out of 5 eggsNo Noticeable Difference

Pros: Looks great, 3D gaming is a bit of a novelty to me, but it's fun to try occasionally.

Cons: During gaming certain angles look dark in the corners of the display. I "upgraded" from a 120Hz display to this and haven't noticed any difference in smoothness. The step from 60Hz to 120Hz made a HUGE difference in the smoothness of games, especially in fast moving games like Quake Live/Quake 3 Arena. Actually, I thought the 120Hz monitor looked better because the corners didn't wash out.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why the corners wash out. It's not like I turn the display away from me. It is still facing directly towards me. It actually looks a little better if I situate myself so that the monitor is slightly slanted forward. I'm being a bit nit-picky, but I did notice this viewing angle disparity as soon as I started using it after replacing my ASUS 120Hz LED monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsSo disappointed

Pros: Nothing


Other Thoughts: I am a AMD user, quite frankly I don't see the purpose of spending 30% more money for 5% more performance and that's why I don't choose Nvidia. I bought this knowing that all 3D monitors should work with AMD HD3D because it is passive 3D that requires middleware. I contacted customer support and they had no idea whether or not it supported HD3D. I don't have another $300 for a Nvidia card that will give me the same performance as my 270x (for $180) and I don't have another $150 to spend on Nvidia vision. This monitor was a total bust, and I will surely never buy another Acer product, not because they are bad, but because of lack of information. Knowing it did NOT support HD3D when I was researching it, would have saved me 5 days worth of trouble, Newegg and Acer both should include this information in the product specifications.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor!

Pros: Bright!
Contrast is great!
144Hz is amazing, huge difference from 60Hz!

Cons: None yet, just remember HDMI does not support 144Hz, only the DVI-D cord you're supplied with does.

Other Thoughts: Do not hesitate to buy this product! It's amazing, and I will be buying two more when I get the chance!

5 out of 5 eggsNo regrets.

Pros: 1ms response time trumps my previous LCD display.
144Hz refresh rate makes using the machine a pleasure again.
Priced right.
Arrived packaged well and with no dead pixels.

Cons: Stand for display does not instill the greatest confidence, although it does the job quite well once placed (ie. do not use with a wobbly desk)
Inputs come straight out the back of the display, not in a downward or 90° angle. This can interfere with plans to utilize the VESA mount (in rare cases) related to cable management.
Somewhat overly bright, but any self respecting monitor owner will calibrate their display.

Other Thoughts: For the price; this panel is a top-notch product.
Gamers and professionals alike would enjoy this panel.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Screen with Connection Issues

Pros: Bright, but blacks are still deep. Rich, vibrant colors.

I prefer the screen to be as close to the true colors as possible, so I use the user setting and turn the red, green and blue all the way up to get a good white color.

I really like the copper accents on the X-shaped base. It's very sturdy and the screen doesn't shake.

Cons: No DisplayPort, but it's not really necessary for 1080p, D-DVI works fine and the cable is included (along with the other connection options except for HDMI) in the box.

Lack of settings- mostly just presets unless you turn on 3D or get one of the various programs that let you use Lightboost during 2D playback. This feature doesn't work over HDMI so keep that in mind as well.

HDMI doesn't do 120hz or 144hz. This isn't the monitor's fault, it's the HDMI standard that doesn't do it.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is a huge upgrade over my 17" laptop screen, but the laptop only has support for HDMI. Unfortunately because of the video card's age and lack of D-DVI support I haven't been able to enjoy the increased refresh rate, but the 1ms response time has been pretty great. This setup is just temporary as I wait to purchase my gaming PC.
