      Good value, general purpose monitor.

      I bought myself one of these a year ago in the Comet sale, for £150 at that time you couldn't find a decent 17" TFT anywhere so I bought it on the spot. I use it for games, video editing, surfing the web, writing letters, everything a typical home user does and its never once given me a reason to complain. I've used alternative ones from HP, Video7 and Dell and none of them offer the same quality of picture for the same cost. I'm sure eventually it will stop working, but by that time(2 years I'd guess) I'm sure the standard will be 28" monitors for everyone so it won't really matter!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I’ll be honest, I have always used standard CRT monitors up to my last one which was 17” I have very recently purchased this Acer AL1711 model and initially was very impressed by it. It was affordable and looked good too! Then after only two weeks of using the monitor it broke! For some reason it just decided to switch off after a quiet ‘Click’ noise. After checking all of the obvious potential reasons for this I came to the conclusion that it was faulty. After speaking to some very helpful and polite people it has now been collected by the manufacturer for repair. I guess only time will tell if they fix the problem and send the monitor back to me in working order and I do not know if this problem is specific to this product or whether all TFT monitors are less rigid that the traditional type. Only time will tell I suppose but I have to be honest and say that I won’t be recommending this particular model to any of my friends. If you have had a different story concerning this model, I would be grateful to know.
