I tend to build quite a few computers for people and I always scout about for the best quality at the lowest price. This monitor is one I seem to keep buying over and over again.
Decent size monitor for a desktop system (who really needs any bigger?), very reliable with no dead pixels so far, all the usual configuration features and it looks quite attractive as well.
Pictures and text are nice and crisp, the tilt and height adjustment features are fine and don't put the monitor in any awkward positions.
What impresses me most about this monitor is that the images are vibrant and bright yet easy on the eye and doesn't cause any glare or strain.
If you want to play big games and want lots of detail (world of warcraft?), you'd really be best off getting a bigger size, but for standard use and simple games you just won't go wrong with this one.
This Acer 17" flat panel offers color and contrast to dazzle the eye.
