Most Critical Review

Well that didn't last long!

Acer G5 G215HVBbd Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor,200 cd/m2 ACM 20,000:1 (600:1)

Pros: It "worked". Decent picture.

Cons: No HDMI. Power cord VERY loose. When I would move the monitor for a second to do something, it would most often turn off because of the cord being so loose. and most of all, IT JUST RANDOMLY STOPPED WORKING.

Overall Review: I exhausted literally every possibility to get the monitor to work. The 1st sign was that my games started having a purple tint. Thinking it was my graphics card, I turned off my PC and removed the card, cleaning it and making sure the pins were intact. I re-inserted my card and plugged the monitor back into it. Making sure the horrible power cord was inserted and working in the monitor, I turned my PC on. My monitor puked the message "No signal". I was puzzled. I thought my card had reached its final breath so I took it out and plugged the monitor into the main monitor port on the back of my computer instead of the graph. card. I turned it on again, still nothing. My monitor had power the whole time and displayed "no signal", automatically forwarding into sleep mode. I then made sure my pc's power was ok. I unplugged my pc for about a half-hour, just to give it some chill time. I then booted up my computer to see that my monitor was still not working. Everything was connected and fully operational during this whole entire process. No harm or damage was taken against the monitor or pc either. I've treated both my monitor and pc as if they were my beloved children.So thanks for taking 140 dollars from me and just spitting in my face. I would really appreciate a cash refund for my monitor and it is an outrage that i've had it for only a few months and it already stopped working on me.

Pros: It works. It has picture options, like almost every monitor.

Cons: Horrible viewing angle! If you have a friend sitting next to you, watching the screen, they will see nothing but darkness. Also, if the power cord comes loose....even the slightest.. the monitor will shut off.
