Reviewed 31 July 2015 by Christopher D.

Search on 16:9 vs 16:10 and you will find numerous long threads with half preferring one and half the other. It really is just personal preference based on what the monitors primary use is. Serous... Read more…

I looked at many monitor reviews and tech specs, but no other monitor really met my needs for this price without having some quality issues. Acer is solid, the work out of the box with no issues
What it is: 24 inch IPS panel, 16 10 aspect ration, 6ms response time
Flicker free ( PWN Free
Very small bezel - keep in mind there is a 18 inch black space all the way around between the useable space and the bezel
What is it good for: Casual gaming, any kind of work related use, video or image editing, and all around general use
None of these are enough to take an egg of for
No HDMI - converter to DVI is inexpensive
Small black border around the screen- I do not mind, but its not obvious before you get it, they may have done this to help prevent light bleed
