      Answer

      Almost all monitors say that. They are referring to the 4 screw holes on the back that allow the hardware to attach to the monitor. You have to buy the hardware separately. Just like TVs now say they are wall mount capable. They only come with the stand to set it on a flat surface. See recommended product below as an example.

          Answer

          There is HDMI input and VGA input. I use the HDMI input. I haven't tried using it with a Cable box with the HDMI -- I think it would work -- but the monitor does not have built-in speakers. However, there is an audio port (standard computer speaker plug) in the back of the monitor so I think in theory, your HDMI cable from your cable box would carry the audio from your cable box to the monitor, and if you plug speakers into the monitor, then I guess the sound should come out. But I have never tried that.

            Answer

            Yes, no. Unlike other monitors/Tvs this doesn't come with a so called "gamemode", but it does come with a mode called graphics which I assume is Acer's version of gamemode. Gamemodes aren't necessarily necessary. They are intended to decrease processing of the image, but more often they are simple visual presets that seem to turn up brightness/contrast, saturation, and edge enhancement. Some manufactures may have better optimized gamemodes then others though...

                Answer

                There is a mini-jack on the back of the monitor. Not the most convenient location, but in keeping with the ultra-sleek design.

                  Look at my attached image. Maybe you're not realizing there's 2 parts of the cord in the box, or maybe it's missing?
