Acer G276HLDbd  Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Product is what I expected it to be 02/11/2014

This review is from: Acer G276HLDbd Black 27" 6ms (GTG) Widescreen LED Monitor 300 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (3000:1)

Pros: I have no complaints. The picture is very good, and I expect that it will get better when I start tweaking the settings.

Some might argue that 1080p is too small for a 27' monitor, but for my part it is just right. Even at 30 years old, my eyes are not what they used to be. It is not necessarily that I have bad vision. I do not need wear or need glasses. However, I do spend a great deal of time in front of the computer for work and leisure, and my eyes are more prone to strain than they used to be. Higher resolutions provide more real estate and arguably a better gaming experience, but they work my eyes harder. By staying with 1080p and upping the screen size, I ended up with a very comfortable fit. It may be different for you, but it worked out great for me. Also, knowing that I would only be gaming in 1080p, I did not need to invest as much in my video card.

Cons: The stand is a tad flimsy? Really this is reaching for a criticism though. It stays put just fine and keeps a low profile. It may not be an ideal fit for someone who needs it for graphic design due to color accuracy or etc., but I highly doubt that anyone who needs a monitor for that purpose is confused about what it is that they need.

Other Thoughts: If 1080p works for you, then you will not regret this purchase, and as a bonus you may be able to spend less on your video card. If you are hedging on your preferred resolution to stay within budget, then you may regret not ponying up the extra money for something else (if that is an option for you). Dealing with a resolution that you don't like for an extended period of time is hell.
