There are lots of 27" monitors to chose from, I chose to replace 2 older 28" lcd monitors with 2 of these primarily for price and use. At the time of purchase this was the best deal I could find anywhere on the web for a 27" monitor. Acer is a good name, I've been using their products for decades with no problems. always out last the warranty. so far!. there's nothing special about these other than the 3 most common inputs included. its few that support DVI, VGA & HDMI in one monitor these days. Mac users can use a Mini display Port adapter to connect. I tested all three inputs with the same source and found both the DVI and VGA performed well and identical in appearance. The HDMI input did not, the image was washed out compared to the other DVI and VGA inputs. Even though I could have tried to adjust the hdmi to match it did not make sense to do so since it performed well with no adjustment on the other 2 inputs.Since I'm using this in a 2 monitor W7setting I chose the DVI and VGA inputs since my graphics card supports all three. So far all is nominal, steam games look fine, basic use is fine too. The one disappointment for Me was when I opened the box and found the external power supply. Its a personal choice but I prefer internal power supplies on monitors (No power brick, Direct from the wall AC plug to the monitor).
I almost returned these due to this, but after looking at the market again I found it would have cost $100 more each to get that feature. I decided to install and test them. I wall mounted these on 2 vesa 100x100 arms with ease. They phyically lok great, thin bezel, thin depth, non glare. I'm Happy! My advice is if You are looking for a 27" and need multiple inputs and can find this for $200 or less its a good deal at this time. Things change so fast however, so look around at the entire market before chosing this monitor, there may be a better deal out there. The next monitors I buy will be 4K once the price comes down. For Now, these will do.

I have a mid 2014 Macbook Air. I started my monitor search with a 29" ultra wide screen LG but after not being able to get the settings right, I returned it. I then bought a thunderbolt display. Paying @ $1k for 2011 technology really irked me but I wanted it to work seamlessly with my Macbook. It did but the high gloss screen was incredibly reflective - I have a window behind me and I could barely see the monitor during the day. The price on that giant thunderbolt, considering a 12ms response v the 6ms of this one was also bothering me. I saw the mouse make major trails at one point which i had never seen before on any monitor, much less one that cost @ $1k. So I returned the thunderbolt and picked up this 27" Acer. I also bought and HDMI adapter and have it set up with the included HDMI cable. The color, speed, size and brightness are fantastic. I'm extremely happy with this.

Great monitors at a great price!

I purchased 2 of these monitors in early May 2014 for $199 each on-sale, for a new 'remote', work-from-home position as an IT Consultant. I used them with an older HP Elite notebook and docking-station that had a DVI and standard display-port outputs. Both monitors ran at max resolution, and matched each other EXACTLY when set at the same TEMPERATURE setting. This is important, since I run my windows desktop with the 'extended' desktop setting, and any variance in color is a no-go when you're in front of them for 8+ hours a day. At my new job, I have 2 Dell monitors, same model and more expensive, that when set to the exact same settings, aren't even close! Get this monitor and you'll be pleased you did!

This is a great monitor that comes with all the connections you would want with a monitor. Cables provided are plenty long enough. Set up was a breeze and the image quality has been great so far!

Big monitor for a great price
Posted by: LouG from: Churchville, NY on
Bought this monitor on sale and so far it is great. I really like the 27" size for a desk monitor. Tried a 32" and it was just too big and the 23"-24" monitor seemed just a little smaller than I wanted. So far so good!

If you get this for a Mac you have to buy an additional cord, you need a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable, which it does not come with. Make sure to clean the scream often and it is a really great product!!

Nice size for graphics work
Posted by: BAILEY21 from: on
I have two of them and find the color and size perfect for home use. I did not see the reviews that said there were no speakers in them. There is a port for a speaker cable and grills for the speakers but nothing in any of the paperwork or specs from Best Buy indicated that there were no speakers mounted inside. These are great monitors but I wouldn't pay more than two hundred for one.

Good price for a 27" monitor
Posted by: Caltitan from: on
I was looking to step up from a ACER 23" monitor and add a third input (previous monitor only has VGA and DVI) as I intend to have two computers and now a security camera system hooked to the same monitor. I was a little hesitant about buying this monitor based on other comments about the washed out HDMI input. I figured I needed to see it in person at the store. Sure enough, of all the monitors on display (most using HDMI inputs) this one was notibly washed out. I tried adjusting the monitor there but it was no comparison to the other monitors. I did notice a lot of the other monitors had glossy screens which I do not like because of the glare. I decided to take a chance and purchase it anyways as I've learned that how TVs and monitors look at the store aren't always how they will look at home. I have to say that I'm very pleased with the display. I have the security system hooked to the HDMI and it looks just as good or better than when it's hooked to the VGA input. Oddly when I have one of the computers hooked to the HDMI, the display isn't quite full size and leaves a 1" black bar around the edge unless I reduce the resolution. I suspect that's a graphics card driver or setting issue. I also read the complaints about the stand. The display model at the store was indeed wobbly but I really snugged down the screws on my monitor and the base seems to be fairly stable, no worse than my previous ACER and comparable to some of the other display models. As with my previous ACER monitor, the menu isn't the easiest to navigate but probably no worse than the dozen or so other monitors I've dealt with recently. My only regret is not buying it one day earlier when the Best Buy website was listing it for $169.

I recently bought two of these monitors. One for my office and one for my 72 year old father who is blind in one eye and can't see well. This $200 purchase has made my father very happy. With the big screen you can set the monitor settings to extra large and everything fits. He can now read emails without sticking his face an inch away from the screen.
