The monitor is absolutely fantastic. The black exterior is very sleek and neat. The resolution is amazing. Upgraded from a regular 17".

The monitor is acceptable given its price. The stand is very basic.
For those looking to mount this on a custom stand or wall mount, there are no VESA mounting options at all. I was surprised at this, after all it is just 4 bolt holes.

I bought this monitor because I am putting off transitioning into eye glasses for as long as possible. I work from home and have SEVERAL applications that I need to view at the same time. This monitor allows me to do this AND the applications are so much brighter and clearer than my old standard monitor. Also, I avoided purchasing a new monitor for a long time because I am NOT that great at "hooking" it all up. Well, I had this monitor hooked up and running in about 5 minutes! For me this monitor was well worth the money spent!

I just got the monitor in today. Vibrant colors, very lightweight, and easy tilt-back feature. For most people, it may be good to adjust the brightness after you've set it up. My eyes are very sensitive so I ended up decreasing the brightness to 33. I may decrease it further.

The set-up is fairly easy, but it seemed daunting at first when I was trying to figure out how to place the screen on the base. I looked at an ACER forum thread and found that the two pieces for the base just slide into each other. For the screen, I highly suggest you place the base down on the table (or whatever flat surface you're working on) and sit the monitor on top of it; push it down until you hear a "snap!" sound. Mine didn't sink all the way down, so there is still a light wobble, especially if I'm typing to fast. I'm too scared to push down on it any further for fear of breaking it. I may experiment with that later because the wobbling can be irritating. Otherwise, very nice monitor. Slim, so it doesn't take up as much space as my previous one.

Recommendation for ACER: perhaps adjustable height in the future.

EDIT: changed my rating from 4 to 3 stars. It already has a dead pixel and I have not had it for long. No improper handling. I haven't even had the monitor for 3 months.

If you just need a larger screen... then go for it. It is great. But if you are trying to do any kind of visual work... video, pictures, graphics... look elsewhere.

Everyone is right about the vertical contrast issue. Though maybe they were dumb... Thought maybe I could just adjust the settings correctly or get the viewing angle right... naw.

As soon as I took it out of the box I took apart the holder and adjusted it so that I could actually TILT the screen. Took a screw driver, some pliers and 10 minutes. DONE.

Plug everything in... It looked horrible... Did my screen calibration... Looked better but still not good enough. I tweeked it for the next week, but I have reached the limits of this screen. I wont be returning it, because it is not broken... I just made a bad purchase. Its not a bad backup screen and thats what it will be.

The quality of the picture and the monitor itself is actually quite nice for the price... however the monitor that arrives is not the one in the pictures. It has only a dvi and vga connection. There is not a HDMI port and certainly not 2. Seeing as how I needed a monitor with HDMI this is useless to me.
