This review is from: Acer G235H ABD Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 80000:1
Pros: It matched my other two monitors exactly
Cons: It was defective. It would be on for a few minutes and then the screen would go black even though the monitor was on. It was also a little brighter than my other two monitors (same mfg/model) even though it was set to the same settings.
Other Thoughts: I wasn't upset at the brightness issue since it was a little bit newer than the other two, but I was upset that I bought a 2 year service contract specifically so I wouldn't have to pay for return shipping in case the unit was defective (like it was). Instead because it was defective as soon as I got it, I have to pay another $15 for return shipping (on top of the 2 year ripoff plan I bought for $21). Overall, a huge ripoff, I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy a refurbished monitor from here and especially not their 2 year replacement plans no matter how desperate you are to have matching monitors...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to set up, and has worked perfectly for the last 2 years. It connects all of my computers and devices with no issues. I use it for my Wii, 2 iphones, my computer and my daughter's computer over wifi.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very slim and lightweight. Set up was easy.
Cons: Another user posted this, but it was the same for me, the viewing angle is meant for you to sit eye level with the middle of the screen or below it. At any other angle, the screen is terribly washed out looking. The black is simply not black, it's a washed out looking grey.
Other Thoughts: I was dissappointed because I've had good experiences with Acer monitors. I actually bought this one so I could run an eyefinity setup with my 2 other Acer monitors (G235Habd). The other monitors are awesome, but this G236 looks even worse when it's sitting right next to the other 2. This is my first product I'm going to have to RMA to Newegg. I ordered a refurbished G235Habd and would rather take my chances on a repaired monitor than this one brand new.READ FULL REVIEW
