I bought this for a security system to support a DVR and eight cameras. It does the job and the price was fair.

A VGA cable is included but I didn't find that fact anywhere, so I bought a cable from Amazon. When the monitor arrived a VGA cable was in fact included. This information should be included in the description.

I'm sure this monitor wouldn't cut it for the someone needing a high-end monitor... but for general office work, including desktop publishing, picture editing, word processing, etc. this monitor is fine, GREAT for the price. Having read the other reviews, I knew the stand did not allow much, if any, adjustment. But the monitor comes with standard thread locations for mounting to other stands. Four screws removed the provided stand and I mounted it to an old HP monitor stand that lets me raise or lower the monitor, or even turn it 90 degrees. I'm using a wide screen ACER monitor elsewhere and this one seems a bit sharper.

Just what I was looking for. Didn't want a widescreen due to placing in a tight spot. I love it!

Replaced my old 15" monitor with this 17" Acer. Really does the job. Perfect color. I have some older programs that will not work with any larger size monitors. I would buy it again.

Easy to setup and use. One of the only 17 inch I could find. Need something for a small area and this works well and looks great.

Easy setup. Nice, crisp image. Good value for the money. Just two cons that held me back from giving this five stars. As someone else mentioned, the base does not allow you to tilt the screen up or down so I ended up having to place a book under the monitor to raise it up to where I wanted it. Next, the power chord connection into the monitor disconnects easily if you lift or move the monitor. Would I still buy this item if I knew these things ahead of time? Yes,

4/16/13 UPDATE - Thanks to a response to the above review, I found that by holding down the base with one hand while pushing or pulling the top of the screen you can tilt this monitor a little bit up or down. It required a little force to do it, which I would not have thought to apply if I had not received the response that it was capable of being tilted. Thanks for that information. I've re-rated this monitor with 5 stars.

Good monitor; I needed something small for a smaller workspace and this fits the bill. I am used to working with higher end equipment. My last 2nd monitor (running off my macbook pro with an adapter of course) could turn 180 degrees. This can't. It's a little top heavy with a cheap sort of base and I work on a rollaround desk, from my bedroom so there is an obvious challenge there-but it hasn't taken the plunge yet. Overall it's working just fine and does what its' supposed to do. I'm pleased with the product. Just know it's limited in features and you won't have a problem.

Color is great and the brightness and contrast are excellent as well easily adjusing to gamma 2.2. Resolution is fine and no pixels were dead. This model is the old fashioned square screen style. I love it. I neither need nor want the wide screen and this one is perfect for me. It is easily worth the price. Shipping was prompt and the packaging was excellent, too.
