I bought this monitor to replace the standard old 15" VGA driven monitor on my Dell, and what an improvement the Acer is.
Obviously the 19" widescreen helps, it looks massive compared to the old screen, and there is so much space for photo editing and games. Not only more space, but much easier to see - not just because its bigger, but the image is sharp, reflections don't seem to be a problem even though the room I'm using is sunny at times. I didn't have any problems getting the image right for photo editing, maybe luck, maybe the NVIDIA card - but to me it looked pretty good straight out of the box. The DVI input is a must, I've tried it with VGA just for comparison and DVI is so much sharper and clearer.
This monitor also looks good. Nice clean lines, not a bulky as some others - Samsung for example. It would be nice to have a height adjustable stand, but for less than 100 quid this monitor is a bargain.
