5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Acer medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all flatpanel monitors Acer is one of the better rated manufacturers.

LED Display

This PC screen has an LED display, which is typical of many medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the Samsung U28E590D[plb_2945127_price], or the Acer K272HUL[plb_3837383_price] which has better reviews; or the LG 29UM67[plb_3765347_price] which is cheaper.

Search on 16:9 vs 16:10 and you will find numerous long threads with half preferring one and half the other. It really is just personal preference based on what the monitors primary use is. Serous... Read more…

I looked at many monitor reviews and tech specs, but no other monitor really met my needs for this price without having some quality issues. Acer is solid, the work out of the box with no issues
What it is: 24 inch IPS panel, 16 10 aspect ration, 6ms response time
Flicker free ( PWN Free
Very small bezel - keep in mind there is a 18 inch black space all the way around between the useable space and the bezel
What is it good for: Casual gaming, any kind of work related use, video or image editing, and all around general use
None of these are enough to take an egg of for
No HDMI - converter to DVI is inexpensive
Small black border around the screen- I do not mind, but its not obvious before you get it, they may have done this to help prevent light bleed
