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.

I did not buy this thing at amazon, it was the cheapest monitor in a store.
It was chosen for the price and reasonable spec.

It it's a mediocre monitor at best.
I bought 2 of them for a side-by-side dual mon. setup.

immediately - the monitors seem to not match - for the simple reason that I am looking at them at a different angle - slightly from the right (for the left monitor) and slightly from the left (for the right monitor), and the color change is not the same from both directions.
2nd - vertical viewing angle is even more restricted - if you try to set them up in a portrait orientation the mismatch described above is too much to tolerate.

wait there is more.
it's only been a year - one of them just died - the image became blotchy and striped and BAD.
the warranty is 3 years - so they will fix it ... I just have to pay for shipping one way

and one more thing - I have borrowed a viewsonic to use as a second monitor is being fixed, and mounted it next to the acer - color mismatch is pretty bad - the viewsonic I got does not have great viewing angles either... but the white background in text editor looks much more white than the acer - and it can not be adjusted with color temp controls.

so - in a pinch with a very tight budget - it will work ok,
if you want to mount it vertically - no go, dual monitor - passable - not great.
hope this helps

I have been using these monitors (2 of them) for over 1 year, originally purchased on 1/19/2011 from Tiger Direct .com

So far i have been very pleased. These are my office monitors and stay on minimally from 8-5, M-F, 250 days a year. I have had no blead or burn in image problems with them and clarity is still good. Very pleased.

Purchased these at Officemax online for $99.99 with free shipping. I bought two for sole purpose of dual monitors. I thought they work really well. I use them for excel purposes and browsing the web. Graphic seem to work well, Although I think HD means 720p instead of 1080p. Overall good monitors for the price.

This was purchased on a budget. The colors on the monitor seem washed out. On the plus side, it's large, has good resolution, and is inexpensive.

It was purchased for less than $100. I will spend the extra $20 or $40 and get something nicer next time.

I have purchased many Acer monitors with no problems. This one takes the same cake as the others. Firm stand looks nice, and the colors and contrast are decent also. I will continue to purchase Acer brand monitors.

Arrived quickly. Set up just as quickly. I do think there was a mistake, however. This refurbished unit looks and performs like NEW! There is not a mark on it.

This monitor is exactly the right size for my work station. Excellent picture quality and room to multi-task all the programs I need to work through the day.

I have two of these. They work great. No dead pixels on either. Good value for money. Shop around or wait for a good price on them, otherwise get an LED.

Works, all right I guess. Lots of back light bleed through. Colors never do look quite right. Much better monitors available now at the same price.
