Great monitor for the price 7/26/2017 1:37:15 PM

Pros: I bought three of these five years ago. I use them regularly to this day.

Cons: After five years I have used the power button only a few times and as a result the button only works properly on one monitor while the others require multiple presses to toggle power.

Overall Review: Overall a excellent investment.

Display has been great for several years now. 1/16/2016 7:40:24 AM

Pros: -Slim & light design
-Light is downward facing and unobtrusive.
-Multiple inputs on the back
-Comes with cables
-Power brick is very small
-Display is good after some tweaking.
-Runs nice and cool.

Cons: -Power supply broke at the year and 6 month mark (wouldn't power on) but Acer promptly sent me a new one without sending back the old. problem solved.
- The stand is flimsy and will wobble wight light weight of monitor
-Sometimes need to hit the power button two or three times for it to register a press.
-No auto select for inputs.
-Button location is hard to use and creates much difficulty in navigation.
-No headphone out or audio jacks period. (not expected but would be nice).

Overall Review: I used this monitor for exactly a year and eight months before it failed. This display is much touted in reviews, and I was very happy with it (save for a few niggles mentioned in the cons) but then one day it just didn't power up. The unit worked an hour before. I would not even get the orange standby light, however the power brick showed a green light.

I was forced to send this unit back under warranty (which is 3 years.) This process cost $40 on top of the original $149 I spent on it making it a $210 purchase after shipping and tax + 6 days+ downtime.

Obviously the manufacturer's warranty and solid reviews on this and other websites indicate that this display should not have failed when it did. Never the less, I would not purchase another Acer display when there are quality Sony, LG, Toshiba & Samsung monitors at affordable prices.

Lots of problems 11/30/2015 3:31:29 AM

Pros: Slim monitor with decent color and finish.

Cons: First slew of issues was with the external power brick which failed after only a few months. I had a compatable one lying around so it wasn't as big of a deal, however acer would not replace it. Second issue maybe 4 months into owning the monitor was one day the menu screen kept coming up and going away and even getting to other buttons like input which was annoying to say the least. Ripped out the button interface board, which had nothing wrong with it upon further testing; something acer wanted me to pay $30 for shipping (on a $120 dollar monitor?!). Latest development is now a gradient of teal in a progressive scanning movment on the right edge of the monitor bleeding into the center has appeared. This is after 2.5 years now and its time to put this beast to rest.

Overall Review: Compared to my Acer P235H which has had its fare share of abuse from constant moving over the span of 5 years. This monitor sadly doesn't hold a candle.

And i would recommend anybody with the misfortune of a button cycling to rip out the board that houses the push buttons. It will resolve the issue but leave you with nothing in the way of interfacing.

GARBAGE! 7/30/2015 9:02:23 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Blew up within a month of getting it was told that I had to contact the manufacturer. They wanted me to pay return shipping for their faulty product.

Overall Review: Garbage is all I can say. I gave it a 1/5 because you sure as heck can't go any lower.

Generally a nice monitor 7/6/2015 9:40:45 PM

Pros: This is overall a very solid monitor. The screen image is great, and it's pretty aesthetic.

Cons: Just recently, after 4 years of frequent use, the monitor has been spontaneously resetting during certain activities (e.g. watching videos or playing games). This can happen as often as every thirty seconds, which is extremely inconvenient especially due the monitor taking 4-5 seconds before it can display an image again.

I googled the problem and it seemed that a decent amount of other people have the same problem. Apparently this is a sign that the power inverter is detecting a fault and tripping.
