Great Monitor

Acer G215HVAbd Black 21.5" 5ms Full HD WideScreen LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 20,000:1 Max (ACM)
Acer G215HVAbd Black 21.5" 5ms Full HD WideScreen LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 20,000:1 Max (ACM)

Pros: We purchased 5 G215H's from another vendor (I hope that's the same as this NewEgg listed unit). All five were perfect and have the best picture I've seen in the 20"-23", 1080p class. All are used in an office environment, so I can't comment on gaming, but the picture is very good. Can't say it's super bright, or has exceptional contrast, but the overall above-average-ness just combines to give a great picture. No bright edges, no peculiar areas. Really good color. No dead pixels or DOA's over 5 units.

Cons: Just very minor niggles at this price point (<~$135). The stand does not adjust for height. And when changing screen resolutions, for instance when switching a KVM between two computers using different screen resolutions, the change takes about 3-4 seconds, which is slower than I've seen on some other monitors. Physical controls on the monitor are not labeled (not really enough bezel to print label text on), but I thought they were easy to figure out and use. I can't say if they're well documented in the manuals, since I never had the need to refer to them.

Overall Review: Just a terrific 1080p, 21.5" LCD monitor. If you want to use this or any other 1080p (or better) monitor in its native resolution (which is when LCD screens clearly look their sharpest), make sure your computer's video hardware supports the maximum resolution. Some older computers' stock video hardware may not.
