I've got an Acer up my sleeve... Review with images

AdvantagesCheap price, decent performance, looks the dog's

DisadvantagesSlower response time than expected, a bit of glare, no DVI input, lame speakers

"Damn. I really disliked Acer you know. I remember ages ago, back in the day when I was younger and had less chest hairs, my friend Simon bought a complete PC system from Acer. It was a horrid shade or dark green and grey, but he liked it - calling it 'chic'. Yeah... and vegetarians eat chickens. In any case, the reason why I brought that up is because he constantly called me up to help him diagnose a problem with his PC. "It keeps switching off! ..." Read review

AdvantagesReasonably inexpensive, reasonable performance

DisadvantagesInternal speakers not up to much!

"...decided to go for the ACER AL174MS monitor - 17" diagonal (actual picture - not tube size, as was the custom with CRT tubes). I had toyed with the idea of just buying a cheap 14" unit, but the cost difference was marginal, and I figured that the higher specification would mean I could keep using the unit for a while longer. Maximum resolution is 1280 x 1024 pixels at a very respectable 0.264 pixels per inch - which by my reckoning is as high ..." Read review

AdvantagesGreat picture, value for money, takes up little space

Sexy Acer

AdvantagesCheap, Good quality

Disadvantagesnot sure

"...though my son spotted this Acer Monitor for £130 in a newspaper advertisement. It solved the room problem. I purchased this one from my local PC world, as they had it in stock. The outside of this monitor is reasonably elegant, smooth to the eye with silver facia plastic surrounds, with five control buttons underneath the screen which allow you to adjust screen colour, contrast and positioning of the display. All of these are very easy to use. ..." Read review

The best TFT I've ever had!

AdvantagesSimply put a great monitor!

DisadvantagesI've yet to find any!

"Simply put, this is the best TFT I have ever owned, and believe you me, I've had a few of them! Firstly, the aesthetics of the monitor are great. Simply put, it looks beautiful and you don't have to worry about breaking it with the touch of a button either as it is so robust. Connectivity is a piece of cake, and was immediately recognized under XP. The controls on the front panel are easy to operate and give you complete control over the ..." Read review

Acer AL1714

AdvantagesLooks Good

DisadvantagesPoor quality, service from Acer appauling

"...have booked it in with Acer for repair and this is where the problems begin. They say they will have the machine back with you within 10 days. This is not the case. They have had this monitor for 4 weeks before it was even assessed. Then they have said that it it uneconomical to repair. They now have a new monitor on order but will not give me an estimate as to when it will be replaced. The staff at the service centre are rude. I have sent in written, ..." Read review
