And in some movies, if it has a very dark screen, the light bleed shows.

The 1920x1080 resolution and 120hz refresh rate make all my games look very crisp and smooth.

I bought this monitor simply to pair it up with the nVidia 3D vision gaming. I considered the following to upgrade my 22" Samsung 206BW -

* Samsung 2233 3D monitor - too expensive and only 1 DVI input
* Viewsonic 3D monitor - too expensive and only 1 DVI input
* Alienware 3D monitor - way too expensive

I needed something to hook up my Xbox360 and PC to and play in 3D. This was the answer for $100 more than the Samsung/Viewsonic and totally worth it - you get FULL HD resolution - 1920x1080 [ vs 1680x1050 from Samsung/Viewsonic ], you get 24" ( 23.6" technically ) [ vs 22" ], you get 3 ( yes, THREE ! ) inputs [ 1 dual-link DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 VGA vs 1 DVI from Samsung/Viewsonic ], PLUS an audio out cable so you can send the HDMI audio signal to good external speakers, AND it has external controls for all settings, unlike the Samsung/Viewsonic so its easy to adjust.

All this means, the Acer is a phenomenal value over the Samsung/Viewsonic anyday if you need more than 1 Input.

After I repartitioned my Linux to make space for Windows 7 and I got grub2 going again to boot up Win XP, Win 7 and Linux, I tried out the monitor in each of the 3 environments.

Its got a problem in Linux when switching virtual consoles. If you stick with the X-console ( the VC that runs the Xserver ), you will be fine, but switch to one of the other VC's and X locks up. I'm using the latest nvidia drivers from the restricted repo in Ubuntu. However, it works quite well at 1920x1080. The colors are crisp and vivid, however, unless you adjust the settings a bit, the text can be bit small/fuzzy. A little Xconfig ( via nvidia control ) tweaking and it looked great. I think it looked better than my 22" Samsung and I had great real estate.

Hi,

I just got this, and let me tell you is an awsome monitor, Size, looking and 3d is awsome good with this LCD.

Sadly mine came with 2 Pixels dead, one always is green and the other one is black, I read warranty and says it have to be more than 4 pixels IN THE SAME PLACE to become a valid warranty claim. Ok this is not a big issue anyway, 2 dots dont make a huge diferences, they are just annoying.

2 weeks later, The monitor start having other issues, only half screen turns on, or it become a full green screen and doesnt change, you need to turn it off and on again until it works.

Im starting the warranty process to see what happens at the end

They told me it was normal since this LCD's are 120Hz you need to let them warm up sometimes is what they told me.

I hope this dont ends in a square pieces of garbage broken and unable to claim to anyone.

If this issues still being fixed by turning off and on the monitor, I guess I can deal with it, but I didnt paid the amount of money this babies cost to deal with this...

Shouldnt be that way.

Im gladly open to any help you can give me.

I lucked out and got this beauty on sale for just over $300.....a savings of over $70 from everywhere else! I bought this monitor to give my PC the ability to display 3D using nVIDIA's 3D Vision kit (also purchased through Amazon). The monitor I was replacing was an Acer X233H, so I really didn't notice a big change in screen size. But with this monitor having a 120 Hz refresh rate the images are crisper and graphics look beautiful (and that's when viewing in 2D)! Works great with the 3D kit, although using the 3D glasses cuts the brightness factor by about 1/2, so you will need to up the gamma level (if possible) when playing games in 3D or adjust the monitor brightness level. Can't wait till more movies are available in 3d Blu-ray, although that will mean getting a Blu-ray DVD ODD for my PC (and maybe a projector since there are so many that are compatible with the nVIDIA 3D system). I was debating between this monitor and the Alienware 3D monitor, but getting this one for just over $300 vs getting the Alienware for $500.....well the Acer seemed like the way to go, and believe me, it definitely was. Nothing against the Alienware, but saving a couple of hundred dollars sealed the deal. Even at its regular price of $370 this would be a great monitor to have if you are a gamer or considering going to 3D on your PC.

Acer's manual and marketing details state the monitor has a 2ms response time, however I see ranges from 9-17ms from my testing. Their manual doesn't state weather this measurement is for white->back->white or grey-to-grey, so I tested both.
I also tested "display lag" and saw numbers from 11-22ms depending on weither v-sync waiting was turned on or not. My methodology was to use a 1000 fps video camera and a micro-controller hooked up to the PC. The PC would trigger a light on the micro-controller and simultaneously present a new frame of data to the monitor. Using the recorded video footage I could measure the time between when the micro-controller light turned on and the monitor initially displayed the first scan line of new data. I could also see when the full display was updated with new frame data. I used 1080p resolution at 120hz for testing and 127/255 gray levels for g2g. My video card was Nvidia GTX 480. More specific timings:

no-vsync white->black->white/2 = 13ms average
no-vsync white->gray->white/2 = 14ms average
vsync white->black->white/2 = 10.6ms average
vsync white->gray->white/2 = 11.2ms average
