Pros: Acer bang for the buck
Cons: None in this comment
Other Thoughts: I'm still the first reviewer so I can keep talking. I meant to say I'm not a gamer so have no idea about screen shear due to the 14ms refresh spec. But I played Blood and Chrome at 1080p and it didn't shear. In fact, it looked better than on my 60" Samsung LED TV with BluRay dvd player. It looks so good, I'm going to sit here and watch it again. Man, it looks really fracking good! Six stars for this monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've never been the first to right a review. I feel special. The other pros are: 1920x1600 resolution, IPS, LED, thin bezel, all black, including buttons, unobtrusive brand logo and model name, bright, realistic color, square base with pen/pencil dish, straight arm in back with height lock, pivotable (is that a word?), display port along with DB15 and DVI ports for high end graphics rigs, and "no dead pixels". Why do people still say that? I've bought hundreds of monitors and never seen a dead pixel. Oh, it has speakers too. Hey, that's important if your setting up a business machine and need basic sound.
Cons: Only pivots one direction so if you want to put the buttons and logo on opposite sides in a dual landscape setup, you can't. Attaching the base was challenging. If you have less than a 100 IQ, you won't figure it out.
Other Thoughts: I just received two of these from Newegg at @249.00 each. What a bargain for 1920x1200 resolution. To tell with 1920 by 1080 monitors. Why do they produce so many at that resolution? I replaced a mixed pair of CFL backlit TFT panels, one running at 1600x1200 and the other at 1200x1024. Man, I've been suffering. I wanted the previous Acer model of 1920x1200 but they got discontinued right before I was going to order. But they were quickly replaced by these IPS versions for the same price. I'm glad I missed out on the previous ones. I admit, I love the Acer brand. It's the most bang for the buck. These monitors are solid and much better than other brands at twice the price. You can't go wrong getting these. Short of a 2560x1600 monitor that needs a special card for dual DVI, one of these gives you the next best amount of screen-estate. Two of them gives you a lot more screen-estate at half the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Silver, one screw to remove the access cover, no button mouse, flush keys, VGA, HDMI
Cons: Power cord sticks out the side. Headphone and Microphone jack presumably the same.
Other Thoughts: Like Coderego said below, if you want to install and SSD get the thin kind. He says 7mm, but I don't know anything about it yet. (and I called my Tech Knowledge "high", hehe) All the SSDs I have wouldn't fit. So I went with the Crucial mSATA 32GB at NewEgg and the iOcrest mSATA SSD to 2.5" SATA adapter. I might be losing some trans rate speed that way, but who gives a rip? It's simply the fastest lappy I've ever laid sweaty palms on.READ FULL REVIEW
