I bought this to replace an $89 2011 holiday special 21.5" Acer from Best Buy. This monitor is much, much better but still not great. The colors and viewing angle are about average, but a huge upgrade from the truly terrible quality of the other monitor. My other big complaint about this monitor is the stand. It's flimsy plastic and the monitor bounces around while you type. There's also no height adjustability, so it sits very low to the desk. If you use it with a laptop, that might be a plus, but if you use with with an iMac or a taller monitor, you're going to need some books or something to level them out. Not a bad monitor for $120 but it's nothing special.

this monitor does full 1080p hd, but what i don't think most people don't mention is that if you have a good enough graphics card when you have this monitor plug into with the vga port with a graphics card it outputs a resolution so high its comparable to hd, because with my graphics card hdmi cables and vga look the same on this monitor (Crystal Clear HD)I found this to be really amazing i have only seen this being possible with a few monitors in the past glad to see that this standard is carried over with some monitors of today :)

This is a great buy! I was a little skeptical because of how cheap it was. However, when I plugged it into my Mac Mini, the screen looked wonderful. The colors and everything are great. I exchanged this from an LG that I bought for nearly twice as much and the colors on the LG were not at all as nice as this. There is a slight "halo" on the edge of the screen when it is showing blacks (say for instance the black horizontal bars of a movie), but during everyday activities (email, pages, internet..etc.) you don't notice it at all. Especially when you know you paid less than $100 for it!

I ordered this monitor a few weeks ago and love it, I was kind of on the fence after reading some reviews about "white border" and I can see what they are saying but its very trivial, all it is is a slight white glow around the edge (the led hitting off the plastic)I don't even notice it, and after coming from a 17" display this is awesome.

I bought 30 of these for a company project. They are easy to setup (as is most monitors). They are bright enough and contrast appears to be in-line with other brands. The base and fasteners are constructed out of plastic and seem breakable. But for my application it was fine. For the money 4 out of 5.

I just set up my new Acer S201HL. The display is clear and bright and I can't see a single problem pixel. The only issue was distorted text and images, but this was easily and thoroughly remedied by doing the following on my Windows XP system: 1. Right click on a blank area of the desktop. 2. Select "Properties" from the context menu. 3. Select "Settings". 4. Move the "Screen Resolution" slider to the right until it gets to 1600 by 900 pixels. 5. Click "Apply". 6. When the "...Retain settings?" window appears, click "Yes". 7. Click "OK" to close the "Properties" window. You should now be looking a beautiful, crisp, undistorted desktop. 8. Enjoy!

I haven't noticed any backlighting problem, but I've read elsewhere that this and other issues, such as color correction, can be resolved by using the monitor menu to make the necessary adjustments.

By the way, this monitor tilts up to 5 degrees forward and 15 degrees back - not much variation, but it's perfect for me at 15 degrees back.

I have had this for over 3 years and it has held up well. I have used it both with Apple and Windows and the resolution is always crystal clear. Very pleased, would recommend to anybody!

I bought this monitor (Acer S201HL) as a second monitor for a PC used to control the audiovisual system in a mid-sized church. The display is crisp and bright, displayed images are sharp and stable, the monitor is light and easy to move, and it works reliably -- what else can you ask for? There are sharper monitors available, but not in the same price range. The Acer is a good quality monitor at a very reasonable price.

While I didn't buy this from Amazon, my dad had purchased it from Newegg and passed it on to me when he purchased a new display...

However, I must say, this display is nice, it's bright and clear, the colors are rich and as far as I know it's still on factory settings.

I can't complain about the screen size, etc. since after all, that's what this display is and it's obvious.
