Acer Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

Based on 3,506 owner and expert reviews, Acer has good ratings for its flatpanel monitors. Acer also has good ratings specifically within its small monitors range compared to other brands.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on small monitors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Hannspree HE195ANB or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the HP W1972a are also worth considering.

All 10 monitors worked as expected right out of the box. If 3 and 3/4 stars was a option I probably would have selected that instead of 4 stars. I just felt it was worth mentioning that...

Good deal (price wise
Nice build quality
The stands tilt up or down
The stands are quick and easy to setup
I purchased 10 of these monitors for the company I work for
The viewing angle is what I would consider poor. .. If you're looking from the side or from a higher position looking downwards it appears extremely washed out
