4.0 out of 5 stars You can make this monitor so much better with just a few steps, June 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was really excited to get this monitor. It's a steal for the size and a great piece of hardware. That's not to say there aren't shortcomings, If you haven't used an LED backlit screen the colors at first are extremely washed out but YOU CAN FIX THIS!

Be sure to download the icc profile that is listed on the acer website and install it by simply right clicking.

Then go to the control panel and click on color management, choose to use your own settings and add the Acer profile that was downloaded.

finally you must open whatever software your graphics card uses whether it's amd catalyst control center or nvidia. After doing some tuning in there you'll be able to have a great monitor that you stole from the refurbished section of amazon!

After doing all those steps I'm very happy with this monitor. Would buy again.

3.0 out of 5 stars A less entertaining collection of stories, May 23, 2011
This review is from: Tales of the Jazz Age (Paperback)
I love F.Scott Fitzgerald. After reading through some of his later works I thought there was no shame in reading some of his earlier writing. Sadly, his attempts do show it's novice. Almost all of the stories follow the same plot line, the main exception being the curious case of Benjamin Button. Mainly the stories all consist of a man, who barely walks the extra mile for a girl and he either gets her or he doesn't it. That is, in essence, the whole book. This wouldn't be so bad if the characters were more three dimensional or if there was some effort put in for the reader to care about them. The women in every story plays a seemingly stupid but pretty woman who is to be wed and There's the main character who is a hopeless man who hatches an idea to win her.

They are nice and fun stories, but really not worth the time if you want to experience Fitzgerald's finest. Even the best artists had to start out somewhere, this was Fitzgeralds.
