From a packaging standpoint, the Acer is an exceptionally thin and lightweight package due in part to the low power usage and LED backlight. The display casing has no vents as the low power consumption translates into minimal heat when coupled with an external power supply based design. The AC adapter itself is smaller than most laptop power supplies.
Color reproduction requires calibration out of the box; nothing unusual. In the case of the Acer, the white balance has a blue cast that can be adjusted manually via onscreen menus.
Brightness is set at max from the factory. Blacks are slightly washed out, reds are slightly desaturated (no saturation control via hardware) and the contrast on the whites is slightly dim. Turning the contrast up past the factory 60% results in washed out details in low contrast images.
The LED backlight produces no noticeable edge bleeding and the display I'm reviewing had no dead pixels.
Overall, a very decent, light weight, budget priced TN panel for every day use.
