5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding clarity 14 Jan 2007
By K. Jamison VINE VOICE
I bought this because it looked better than the standard 19" monitor. I wasn't disappointed. I also run a KVM and switch effortlessly between two PC systems. There is good contrast and the brightness can be adjusted so it's not too harsh. I can literally sit in front of it for hours at a time editing video. I don't play games on it so I can't help you there. Movies look fantastic, DVDs and TV broadcasts are great. I've seen this sold more expensively elsewhere - this is a great price for a widescreen monitor.

Points to Note: Your video card needs to support 1440x900 (either natively or by customising the resolution via your video card control panel). Don't take web advice on downloading an Acer driver to fix the 1440x900 resolution, just buy a better video card for about 40 pounds to get the most from this screen. I have an NVIDIA GeForce4 MX4000 (native 1440x900) in one system and an FX5500 (custom 1440x900) in the other.

Warm up time is quite fast from cold. There's an Acer logo first and a couple of seconds pause before your screen appears.

The widescreen factor is a big plus for me as I edit a lot of video and I can arrange all of the windows and timelines across the screen. On my old 4:3 monitor, I could never get them all on the screen at the same time...

5.0 out of 5 stars 19" Bargain 30 Jan 2007
Have had this monitor for around 8-9 months now. I paid 174.00 for it. I have no complaints about my monitor whatsoever. The picture is great, response time seems fine for gaming (have played counterstrike, JK2 & AOE3 on it) colours are well saturated and seem accurate, brightness is not much of an issue although some claim it is. I have mine set to 45/100 most of the time, though sometimes turn it down lower at night. The physical quality of the product is good, with a tidy little button area, the power button is a bit plasticy but have had no problems with it. My only issues with monitor are (a) no DVI input and (b) no height adjustment. At the time I bought the screen, i also purchased this Kensington flatpanel arm-mount: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0006SIV52/ref=pd_ys_iyr7/026-4719814-5193224 which i have found is brilliant, especially for the price. It saves masses of space, and gives good height adjustment.

So, I'd recommend buying this monitor, but also considering (1) do you need DVI? Planning to run dual-screen sometime? Upgrading your PC sometime to a grafix card with only DVI outputs? (2) How low is your desk? How high is your chair? How tall are you? The built in stand only raises the monitor around 12cm off the desk.

Overall though, for the value, 5 stars!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor, Excellent Value! 16 Feb 2007
I've had this monitor now for a few weeks, it was recommended to me by a friend who impressed me with theirs

Overall, this is a fantastic monitor, although it is not DVI it is still very much worth buying. The resolution is good enough to watch HD 720P video, and the brightness, colour and contrast are brilliant.

One issue I have come accross is the backlight leakage at the top and bottom; which can be a little annoying when watching dark movies or games such as Half Life 2/F.E.A.R. this is only minor though and the majority of users will have no problems, especially with the exceptionally good response time.

Other than that, I would reccomend this product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 2 Oct 2007
Took it out of the box, plugged it in. I had to play a bit with the screen resolution, I found that 1280x720 works best on my graphics card, and it all works perfectly. No dead pixels and fantastic quality viewing. I went from 17inch CRT @ 800x600 to this ...and I'm very pleased. I'll be using it mostly for Internet and Office use. Some reviewers say they couldn't set up this screen...I don't see why... it really is plug and play. I have an old home built PC running XP and I had no probs at all. For the price you can't go wrong, if you are happy with this size and speed then you will be very pleased indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit ! 18 Feb 2007
By El
Verified Purchase
We treated ourselves to make more space at the PC table and so far it's been a valuable purchase. After arriving in secure packaging only a few days after ordering, it sat all day unopened as i could not bear the complications of setting it up - but was i mistaken - i had it unpacked, cabled up, mounted and in use within 15 mins and 10 of those were trying to reach the back of the computer without pulling out 'cos i'm lazy!

It set itself up automatically much to my relief as i am no techno. I did have to adjust the brightness, as everyone seems to be saying, when not used to this type of screen, boy is it bright!. Unless playing games or looking at photos i used to keep my old screen at 53 percent so this is definately overpowering - i'm currently at 50 percent but will probably reduce the brightness again. I did not have the option of 1140 x 900 until i plugged it in but i switched it over with ease. I must point out that you do not have to have it set to this resolution though but for optimum viewing it is recomended.

Response time is excellent and it looks great: sleek and contemporary. No the height cannot be adjusted but you can angle the screen to suit - however like all LCD, other viewers may not have anideal view when not sat straight in front of screen but its a small price to pay for a superb value and quality monitor.
