Many of the monitors available today are made by companies I have never heard of. Years ago I owned an Acer computer that functioned just fine for a long time. I ordered this screen from Amazon via Tigerdirect.
The packaging was excellent - sturdy and constructed to take shipping shock very well. Installation took about 20 minutes. My hands are small - fitting the plug into the socket in a parallel position to the base wasn't hard for me. I do agree that part of the design is dumb (therefore 4 stars).
This screen is used on my computer with business software, general internet use and desktop publishing -- not for gaming. I've used it since May'05 and there are no dead pixels.
I am an experienced photographer so color and clarity are important. The only picture I've seen that is truly a dissapoint is one of a cave in Utah where there are many hues of red and yellow. For some reason the pixels in that picture distort into tiny blocks of color. In every other case the color and clarity have met my standards. I have a $400 dell display used for gaming on my other computer. I can't see any obvious difference in visual quality when using the same software on either computer for non-gaming purposes.
My biggest problem is that it's too bright. I work in a dim environment, and when I turned the monitor down to brightness=0, my eyes still feel fatigue.
I also have been unable to adjust the gamma because I can't turn down the brightness enough.
Further, when you move your head from side to side, parts of the screen look more and less yellow. (this doesn't happen on other LCDs/laptops I've used).
Maybe on a budget this is great, but since I stare at the screen for 9 hours a day, and I'm probably hypercritical, this LCD is not the best choice.
When I finally break down and buy an LCD for myself, at home, I know I will have to test it in person.
the response time is 14ms.... for a cheap 200 monitor ive seen it for around 5ms
contrast sucks, most good monitors have ATLEAST 500:1 contrast, for this price you do not want this contrast, lower contrast means worse picture quality.
the screen is tiny, who these days has a 17 inch screen,plus its not widescreen! If you like this brand acer theres like a 22 inch widescreen with better specs and even cheaper than this.
i personally have a samsung 22 inch widescreen with 2ms response and 1000:1 contrast (it says 3000:1 but its a different contrast measure)
this monitor was the beast deal ever, for only 30 bucks more than this low quality high priced monitor.
just think about it,

Just received my flat panel today. I've been on it for a few hours now, and, well the title says it all. Hopefully, I won't have to return to write a less positive review. ;-)Published on October 5, 2005 by Y. Zahir
