Pros: Works, no dead pixels, reasonable price, what more can you ask for? I've bought 5 of this exact model and well over 50 of the V196 series altogether (probably approaching the 100 mark) to replace old CRT monitors where I work. I've yet to encounter any of the Acer V196 series that arrived DOA, or came with a single dead pixel. These are great monitors.
Cons: No rotation or height adjustmentREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked flawless out of the box, ZERO dead/stuck pixels
Other Thoughts: If it's too bright OOB, then turn the brightness down... Have this and a V193LAJOb setup in a dual monitor configuration. Was able to configure color/brightness/contrast to look similar enough on both screens that the average person wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Have purchased around 40 Acer monitors over the past 5 years for work and have yet to have a single dead or stuck pixel on any of them. Keep up the good work, Acer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: DVI, VGA, very thin, very light weight, ZERO dead /stuck pixels
Cons: Buttons are not labeled. When you push a button, it shows a diagram on the screen labeling each button (does make it easier to use in the dark though...). Requires a flat head screwdriver (not a big deal, but could be for some people especially if they don't have one)
Other Thoughts: Ordered two of these, these screens are very bright out of the box, the default is set to 100%, I had to drop it to 40% before I could stand to look at it. Also, please note these monitors use an external AC adapter (like a laptop) instead of a conventional power cord.READ FULL REVIEW
