Acer S201HLbd Black 20" 5ms LED-Backlight LCD monitor 250 cd/m2 ACM 12,000,000:1 (1000:1)
  • 1600 x 900 5ms
  • ACM 12,000,000:1 (1000:1)
  • D-Sub, DVI
  • 170°(H) / 160°(V)

Pros:

The design is very sleek, the tilt adjustment angles to whatever cozy chair I want to put in front of my desk, I have plenty of room for my keyboard and peripherals in front of the monitor, its slim design allows for even laptop webcams to latch to the body, and the thing is shiny as all get-out (within the realm of being pretty, and not extending into annoying). The screen is bright, the colors are vibrant, picture quality is like I'm looking at a razor's edge, 16x9 has proven significantly beneficial over my previous 17" 1280x1024... and I repeat, the thing is shiny. Coincidentally, the aesthetic look of this monitor perfectly matches the black gloss of my speakers, keyboard, and tower.

Cons:

The power light does have a bit of a shine to it, but it's not horribly bright. Height adjustment would be nice, but with my setup, it's not really necessary.

No HDMI means no connecting my PS3, so I have to add to my list of reasons for getting a tv tuner card. Even though it doesn't have built-in speakers, nerds like me who know ways to get around the lack of sound reproduction could still send video to the monitor and use another audio source. It's just... unpleasant that I have no way to play Burnout Paradise until I get a TV tuner.

Other Thoughts:

I would've liked to have seen this as a 120Hz monitor, since it has LED technology implemented into it, and that could allow for some 3D gaming and video, but I personally believe that 3D monitor/tv manufacturers jumped the gun on marketing the technology; until we can have wide 3D viewing angles without glasses, I'll settle for my 3DS and movie theaters.

The thing is no lower in quality than what you'd expect of a monitor for this price, but that's at its lowest. I'd easily rate this at $160 or more.
