Bad contrast and limited vertical view angle
on February 9, 2012
I chose it because it is inexpensive. I thought in worst case I just use it as a security camera monitor.
I have being using my Acer G215HV for 2 month. For the good thing it works so far so good. Image is stable with both VGA and DVI inputs. The X shape base is stable enough without occupy too much desk space. No major problems other than following two.
First problem is the viewing angle. If you buy it for your home computer you better sit tight when use it. Cause when you sit back and stand it becomes ugly. The second problem is the contrast. Even if you directly face it the contrast can't compare with any other LCD I've used. I explored all possible settings but can't improve much. It must be the limitation of cheap LCD technology.
In conclusion, don't buy. I wish I had returned it in the first month.
