4 out of 5 eggs beautiful display, some limitations (review based on $199 price) 12/30/2013

This review is from: Acer S275HL bmii Black 27" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor 250 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers IPS Panel

Pros: Beautiful looking display. I think these look extremely nice. That's what you buy a monitor for, right?
-2 HDMI inputs is nice (so I have my server on the second input in case I need to switch over).

Cons: Biggest: no standard monitor mounts. You must use the stand, you can't hang it from a standard display mount. Also, even if you're a diyer, the electrical runs through the stand, so you can't really get around it.
smaller cons:
-I would like to have a DVI input.
-The speakers are total trash. Significantly worse than my laptop built-in speakers.
-1080p is the low end of acceptable resolution for this size display (imo).
-no vertical height adjustment, and they sit low. Get a stand.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these at steep discount ($199/ea) and am extremely happy with the rig *at that price*. You can imagine I'm very pleased with a dual 27" ips 1080 rig for <$400 total. If I paid list (~$800), I would rate it lower.
I don't have an eye for color accuracy, so I don't have any input there.
