Extremely Fragile 2/10/2020 7:24:38 AM

Pros: It is cheap, and it is thin, which leads directly to the cons...

Cons: I have monitors in my office that I have had for 10 plus years. I move this on from one desk to another, and the screen cracks! I have only had it for a few months!

Overall Review: I would spend a little more and get a monitor that's not so fragile, unless your work space is a bubble

Dear Anonymous,
We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you; we can certainly understand you’re frustrated. Based on your comments it appears the LCD sustained a crack or break of some kind. You can see examples of an internally cracked LCD here: https://us.answers.acer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2122
This type of damage does not occur due to age or normal usage of the device therefore this type of damage is not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. With that said we do understand this is frustrating for you, and we want to work with you to see how we can help improve this experience. If you are located in the US or Canada, please fill out this form so that we can assist you: http://csapps.acer.com/prompt/?key=6ddc24a6b99952bbf733cfa715ca63d1cd419628

Pretty Straightforward Monitor 3/20/2019 5:20:18 PM

Pros: Price
Picture Clarity

Cons: Loose Mount
Speakers

Overall Review: I haven't had the same longevity issues that other people have complained about. In fact, this monitor has been great. I use it on a workstation, and it'll stay on a mostly static screen for days at a time - there hasn't been any noticeable pixel burn-in at all.

My only complaint is that the stand is pretty crummy - but since it comes with VESA mounting holes on the back, that's very easy to fix. Highly recommend getting it, especially on sale.

The speakers are also a joke (worse than my laptop) but at this price point that's not really a negative at all - really having any speakers at all is a good thing.

Solid performer. Really good view. 11/29/2018 3:06:42 PM

Pros: 1. Size. It is big enough to make even the finest text readable.
2. Clarity. The pixels are still small enough that unless I lean close I cannot discern them.
3. Price. Especially compared to anything new.
4. Colors. Bright and vivid, without discernable lack in the colorspace for most tasks including gaming on high or ultra settings.

Cons: Footprint. It takes up a lot of desk.
Not very adjustable for angle and height.

Dim screen 11/12/2018 4:16:45 PM

Pros: Solid screen

Cons: Dim, never gets bright. Adjusted brightness to max and have it as my second monitor, looks like its 50% darker than my other monitor.

Overall Review: I wouldn't have purchased this screen if I had seen how dim it is.

Damaged/cracked screen upon unpacking :( 10/16/2018 11:51:18 PM

Pros: Lightweight, easy to setup and free cordage

Cons: This sat on my shelf for about a year before I even unboxed it, today; got it all set up and then powered it up, only to find it had a cracked LCD screen. Looks like something poked clean through the shipping box to an exposed or unprotected inner screen area. Never even noticed the small puncture on the box before... very disappointing. Who would suspect that there would be puncture damage 3-4" into the interior of the box?

Overall Review: At the time of purchase, it had all the features and reviews for this size monitor/TV at a competitive price. Guess it will go to the trash though :(
Basically I get a few cords I don't need for $100. Argh. Not really the fault of the manufacturer or Newegg, so am only taking off 2 stars and racking this up to experience.; bad experience and costly at that...

Acer KN242HYL 23.8" IPS LCD/LED Widescreen Monitor 10/3/2018 4:49:30 AM

Pros: Nice display quality
D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI connections

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: Bought this to set up a docking station for my work laptop when working from home, as well as for "hobbyist" use building and rehabbing desktop computers. Works great for both purposes. I like the fact that it has D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI connections, which allows the monitor to be connected to any "era" of desktop computer I may happen to be working on. I also like the built in speakers, which allow me to at least verify that audio is working on a fresh build or a fresh OS install on an old computer. The speakers are low quality, but not a problem for what I'm using them for. Note to those complaining about the speakers - most any monitor with built in speakers will have low quality sound - don't think these speakers will replace a soundbar or external speakers. Overall very pleased with this purchase - got it on sale with free shipping at a very reasonable price - a very good value IMO.
