Acer G6 Series G226HQLBbd  Black  21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: full hd; inexpensive when on sale; dvi and vga inputs; good colors; crisp text.

Cons: It took a lot of adjusting to get correct color saturation without washout. Had to use video card's software to remove all brightness (0%) and just 37% contrast and increase digital vibrance to 67%. (Nvida GT550ti) I like it now.

Other Thoughts: Out of the box there is way too much brightness and contrast. I was totally disappointed until I used the video card's software to adjust. Previous 20" Acer monitor required very little adjustments.

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Seems fine 01/09/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade

Pros: Seems to be very fast and stable. Takes Windows 7 to another level.

Cons: Windows 8 is designed for touch-enabled devices. Microsoft was just flat petulant and wrong not to include an option to enable a start-button interface. However, has classic shell that makes this otherwise decent operating system useable for non-touch devices (most desktops and laptops).
