Tried and Tested - and no Ace(r) puns either!
Member Name: danser
Advantages: Relatively Cheap. Solid build. Keep on truckin'.
Disadvantages: No height adjustment.
So what do I mean by "tried and tested"? Well we have been using these at work for the last 18 months and have approximately 150 in the office, so I have a fair bit of experience with this model.
I won't go too much into the technical specs as you can get them all from the tabbed marked Technical Details funnily enough, but a few of the major points are:
Max resolution = 1280x1024. You wouldn't want anything less on a 19" screen
Image Brightness = 300cd/m2. This is so so, but for your general day to day use it's fine - if you are really finicky about picture quality and brightness you probably would be looking to spend more on a monitor anyway.
Contrast = 700:1. See above as the same applies.
Connectivity = VGA and DVI-D. It's nice having the DVI-D option as a lot of newer graphics cards have this as an output.
Warranty = 3 years as standard. We have had a couple replaced with no problems, just keep your receipts/invoices!
Overall it is a good, solid screen that does what it says it will. It's not the prettiest screen I have ever seen but far from the ugliest. Unfortunately there is no height adjustment on the stand but you can tilt the screen back and forth a little. Out of 150 we have had about 5 play up - but these have been replaced by Acer after we proved our purchase with an invoice.
Summary: We pay about £100 for one of these which is a bargin for what you get!
