Works great, has awesome picture and very light weight. Controls need a little getting used to. I cant get my computer fill the entire screen. I've played with all the settings and the monitor itself has the capability to stretch horizontal and vertical but its greyed out and not usable... maybe its due to going through hdmi. It includes an hdmi and vga cable which is awesome.

This is a great monitor for gaming rigs where you need multiple HDMI inputs. It has 2 HDMI and 1 VGA input and a button to cycle through them. I like how lightweight it is, and it's very bright. The 2ms response time ain't too shabby either. Not a single dead pixel on mine and I've had it for almost three years.

Lots of people report problems with the image from a computer, even in 1080p, not filling the entire screen. You cannot fix this on the monitor settings. You need to go to your graphics card control center and adjust your overscan/underscan setting (Google it).

The picture quality is OK. It's VERY bright, even at its lowest setting, and the colors are very blue-heavy. It's so bright that some light-gray objects may appear white on-screen.

There are a few other things I don't like about this monitor. For one, it shows the ACER logo followed by the Energy star symbol for a good six seconds every time you turn it on. I turn my monitor off a lot when not using my PC (cause it takes a long time to go to powersave). Waiting for this when powering up the computer can be a drag too, as you might miss the BIOS screen of your computer while waiting for the splash to finish.

The other annoying thing is that it automatically switches inputs whenever one goes offline. Not a big problem, but for some reason the monitor always auto-switched to my 360 (which was off) when my PC went to sleep. It would then stay on and show a black screen.

Still, it's a nice monitor, and 2 HDMI inputs is nice. I wish it had DVI. I'd recommend it if you can find one on sale.

UPDATE: At the three-year mark there is a noticeable flicker on the screen probably caused by the backlight going out.

Brilliant colours, 100m:1 contrast ratio. Satisfied w/ this purchase. The only reason this didn't get a 5-star rating is that it can only tilt, and doesn't have an adjustable height.

My monitor is new and there is a waving/flickering motion on the screen. At first I was using it with a computer that had only a VGA connection, and assumed it was due to using VGA. Then after two months I needed to get a new computer which supports only HDMI. Instead of improving the issue, it was much worse with HDMI mode. The waving/flickering is most pronounced at the top of the screen and with a dark solid color. The new computer is a Dell XPS with an NVidia graphics card. The issue can also be seen on my husbands Mac laptop, and on my Lenovo laptop.

Acer technical support is not good and I will have to be without a monitor for 7-10 business days if I send it in for repair (cost of shipping to be paid by me).

Overall a bad experience with this product.

I ordered two Acer 23" monitors after a friend's recommendation. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Set-up was easy and I had them hooked up in no time. After two weeks of use, the monitors are a significant improvement over the much smaller 19" monitor I was using. The picture in incredible and I have enough room on each monitor to run multiple applications side-by-side.

I have also used an Acer netbook for several years and have been impressed with the Acer brand.

Extremely happy with this monitor. The picture is crystal clear. I have been using it for a year and a half. It is still working perfectly. I can even use this monitor for my ps3.

I am very pleased with this seller, the product, and the way it was shipped.
It arrived way ahead of schedule, was packaged well. The seller notified me that it would arrive in two packages.
The monitor is in perfect condition, without a mark on it.
My husband needs this to use with his laptop as his eye sight has deteriorated due to dry macular degeneration. With this he can now use his computer.
Thank you for your prompt handling.

I really like this monitor and when I have some more money, I will buy another one. Currently, I use my laptop and this display for dual monitors. The cost and quality of this monitor makes me want another one. The multiple hdmi inputs makes using this as a dual setup easy; great product, no complaints here.
