Good unless you work with colors 02/05/2014
This monitor is light, thin, and easy to transport. When it's on sale, its price is pretty decent for the size.
I mostly bought this monitor for its size and the price it was at during the time of purchase. It was an upgrade from a 16". Over past couple of years that I've owned it, I've definitely noticed a quality drop, even from the previous monitor. No matter the viewing angle, settings adjustments, etc, the colors always look washed out. As a graphic designer, this is a huge disadvantage because I can't get a full range of colors. Light colors are essentially white and dark ones might as well be black. Also, whites aren't exactly white either--they're more of a light gray.
I've always been a fan of Acer, but this is just a bit of a disappointment.
If you need a large, cheap monitor, this is the one to buy. But if you're using it for anything color-essential, stay clear.
