I deal with mostly Dell's in the workplace but when looking to replace my home FPD I found this Acer. After checking all the specs it seem to be up to par with some more expensive models in the same size range.Overall the monitor performs extremely well, crisp, sharp clear picture. So far no hiccups at all. The software provided with it is basically useless, if you have a decent display adapter you'll do fine managing it with the adapter's utility.Impressed with DVD playback quality, really no negatives for the price. My one only wish is that they made it mountable. Great price, Quality is outstanding so far. Be nice if it was energy star compliant.
