Very happy so far!
Pros: - Excellent color quality, a nice step up from my old monitors - The small bezle (the plastic border around the screen) is great for multi-monitor setups - Solid base, not as likely to tip over or move due to small bumps as other brands I've used - Despite what the specs say, this model (G247HYL bmidx) actually has HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA connections
Cons: - The settings buttons are a little hard to get to and are not labeled from the front (though most people will probably never need to use them) - The pair of logos that pop up on the screen when you first turn it on are a bit annoying.
Overall Review: I've owned a pair of Acer 19" 16:10 monitors for a few years now without any issues or complaints. This year the Black Friday deals persuaded me that it was time to upgrade, and so I bought two of these units (G247HYL bmidx) to replace my existing dual monitor setup. The most immediate thing I've noticed after upgrading is whenever I play YouTube videos, YouTube now defaults to the highest resolutions at 60fps whenever possible (which looks amazing I might add). I've also noticed that many of the games I play seem to perform better using the 1080p resolution over my previous monitors 1400x900 resolution. Overall I'm very happy with these monitors and would even consider getting a 3rd for a 3-screen setup if I had a big enough desk to fit them all on. In general, Acer is not a brand I associate with quality, high-end electronics (their motherboards are passable, and PCs mediocre at best), but when it comes to monitors I've yet to be disappointed by an Acer product.
