Exactly what I was looking for

When this monitor is on sale for $[price] it is a great "bang for your buck". Zero issues with it.

Perfect for a compact TV!

Ima news junkie, and have one of these monitors in every room in our house, kitchen included! Its compact, crystal clear, and decent sound. I love these monitors so much, I pulled a Will Macavoy and flush mounted 4 of them in a square in our office for constant news coverage haha. I said i was a news junkie :P! All in all, the quality, picture and value are well worth the price!

Works fine except for maybe some minor light bleeding at the edge which isn't really noticeable.

Monitor & PC

The Monitor I purchased is awesome and I am very pleased with it. The ASUS pc I purchased however at the Brandon store in Manitoba will be going back as it has been braking down constantly since I purchased it. I paid a lot for it and am very disappointed. Hopefully I can trade it in or exchange it for a good pc I paid for the insurance so I should be okay.

I really like the monitor

I have purchased two of these monitors and as a professional working long hours in front of a monitor, the quality is really satisfactory. I bought a 27" monitor of the same brand Acer, but I returned it since it was totally different from this one. I think that is because of IPS in its 23.8" inch which I suppose does not exist in its 27" version. Another feature I personally like about this monitor is its low stand that provides the right angle for viewing screen content. Most other similar monitors, have a high stand which put pressure on neck and is uncomfortable in long run. Of course you need to pay a greater amount of money to buy one of those with adjustable stand but this monitor is perfect in regards to all factors.

Great Quality

The speakers aren't the best quality, but overall the quality image is very good and the resolution is perfect. I definitely recommend this monitor to anyone, especially when it's on sale.

Great product!! 4.5/5

The quality of the screen is great! The dual HDMI ports are great for toggling between TV, PC and game consoles! Only downside of the monitor is that the bottons are on the bottom right of the monitor and when the buttons are pushed the monitors stand doesnt hold it straight! No other problems everything is great! -Acer customer

Decent Monitor

The monitor is sharp and crisp, as expected from an IPS 1080p panel, but the colours are somewhat lackluster in terms of contrast. Occasionally colour-banding is noticeable on gradient backgrounds which is very distracting. Dedicated speakers are heavily recommended since the built-in ones are less than satisfying. In terms of design, the monitor looks fine with its thin bezels and glossy finish, but the buttons lack a tactile feedback. The verdict is that while definitely not a gaming monitor, the price can justify it as a solid choice for general use.

Not bad for price

I have read reviews that speakers are loud. Well I have to put my ear up to the monitor. Something must be wrong with this monitor. Just bought this monitor last week. Maybe that is why it was a good price.

Great value, almost perfect

I got this a couple weeks ago. Blown away by the picture, it's great, I use it to dock my MacBook Pro at home and to connect my Xbox One. Everything looks great on it. It's sharp, shows great detail, has great colour. A common complaint is the shaky monitor stand. Yeah, it shakes. It's not like owning a monitor standing on a slinky or anything. It will wobble if you violently shake your desk or violently shake your mouse. In reality since you probably wouldn't do this, the stand is good enough. At least that's my take on it. My only really complaint is the lack of a headphone jack (3.5mm output) so I could connect computer speakers via audio over HDMI. There is an audio-in, but they are monitor speakers and serve to provide audio but don't offer quality audio or anything close to it. They're tinny and quiet, but thankfully most devices have their own audio-out options so this isn't really a major issue.

Great for price

IPS panel provides much better color than my old LCD monitor, 2 hdmi inputs, speakers are good for monitor speakers. Stand is a little short but I use extra monitor stand. On sale makes it a great deal.


  • from Niagara Falls, ON

Decent

On sale it is a decent price for IPS panel. The monitor is also pretty slim. The stand however is super shaky/wobbly. I saw someone comment on how loud the speakers are in another review but this is just not the case. They are extremely quite. I would rate this an average display.

Works well, Delivered fast

I ordered my monitor mid day Wednesday and it was on my desk and operational by 10 am Thursday! It's not the same monitor as I had hoped would arrive, to match the monitor I have already, but its a great screen.

Odd "grid" pattern

If there's a lot of motion on-screen, a faint grid-pattern appears over certain colours and textures. Kind of weird and distracting. Monitor stand is also really flimsy, the screen wobbles like crazy if you were to say, bump into it.

Great Purchase

I bought this monitor on sale and i am really impressed of the quality of this monitor. The built-in speakers and really loud and are great quality. You should really buy this

Nice monitor for the price

Overall I like this monitor. My only issue is that the stand is considerably lower than my other monitor (that sits next to it) so I had to prop it up on a book to get them to the same height. Wish it had height adjustment on the stand. Good picture, and can't beat the price though

Overall a great monitor

I've read several reviews that say the stand is wobbly. Those reviews are 100% correct. However, this is only an issue if you have a flimsy desk. I'd say that, as desks go, mine is moderately solid and I don't have any problem with wobble while the monitor is actually in use. This monitor also comes with built-in speakers that are pretty terrible. I'd say that their sound is laptop quality. But since I wasn't buying it for the speakers, this was also a non-issue for me. The display, on the other hand, is fantastic. It's beautiful, crisp and bright. I bought this at the sale price of [Price] and for an IPS monitor, that's a great deal. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because of the stand and the speakers. In summary: Terrible stand, lousy speakers, stellar screen.

Dead within two months, what a joke

I paid for this Acer 24" Widescreen LCD (G246HYL) on May 13th of 2015, now it's out of work, completely! I cant believe this just happened to me, for Acer such a big brand. This monitor went off suddenly without any sign and dead when I was playing Dota2!!! I pressed the power button, no response no light on, I re-plugged all the cables and still no light on no response. It's dead, I just used it for not even two months(a few days of delivery) and it's dead. I only used it to play Dota2 sometimes and watch YouTube, not much use of it. Never dropped or hit!!! I take very good care of it and the condition of it is nearly perfect except it is out of work, not functioning at all, totally dead!!!
