- Worth Every Penny- August 22, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used to just game on my laptop, but after playing on this screen, I'm spoilt( That's a word. Trust me).It has a near invisible bezzel and the colors look amazing, for a FHD screen. 250 nits give off a beautiful display. I can't wait to do some film editing on it. The problem is, there's only one HDMI port and no speaker port. I would think that if you're planning on gaming on a PC, you've already got a nice speaker system, running from your tower and no need for an extra HDMI port. Honestly,for the asking price, this is a great moniter. Thanks to my little personal qualms, I can't give it 5 stars, but I would definitely recommend this to friend. 24" moniters are really the sweet spot for gamers, go ahead and put this in your cart. And don't forget to game on.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice monitor. Easy on the eyes.- August 18, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a hard core gamer/computer user. I am on the computer for extended hours. Having a nice monitor that does not strain your eyes is an absolute must. This Acer screen has some type of polarization on it to where it is not as bright and cuts glare pretty good. So it helps with eye strain. Only bad thing is that if you move too much up and down it will cut the image. Just position in the relative same spot and you should be good. Graphics quality is really good. I streamed 4K flawlessly. I pushed it with 8K and I think my PC sputtered. So no fault of Acer. Game play was great. No latency issues. Colors looked nice and warm. Size is great proportionally for 16:9. Setup took 15 seconds. Snap together and 1 screw. Either VGA or HDMI inputs. Power cable and you are all set. Would highly recommend this product. Nice job Acer.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Entry Level Gaming Monitor You'll Appreciate- August 22, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] --- SETUP --- The setup for the Acer monitor required little effort. Being 24 inches, it isn’t heavy to carry. I used the protective cover sleeve it came in to set it flat on a small table, connected the base and stand, plugged in the power cord and the included HDMI cable, and then carried it over to my gaming computer room. --- FEATURES --- Full HD resolution at 1080P, 75Hz refresh rate, 1ms VRB, and AMD Radeon FreeSync technology. It includes an HDMI 1.4 port and a VGA port. --- PERFORMANCE --- This little monitor can do wonders for your gaming experience. Though many games support resolutions higher than 1080P, not everyone has a beast of a computer to run them. In the gaming world, you want a monitor that will give you a nice 1080P resolution with 60 FPS or higher. In comes this ACER monitor for great visuals, nice deep blacks, and a smooth gaming experience. --- EXPECTATIONS --- The monitor itself is great for gaming. I tried older games like the newly remastered Quake and it was able to keep up with the frantic multiplayer happening. I then tried it with a slower but more graphic intensive game, Mortal Shell. The game was simply a beauty to look at. My computer has 2 AMD graphics cards, so I was able to turn on the AMD Freesync. Doing so allowed me to have a smoother game experience while playing my game, but I do turn that feature off for multiplayer to get the max FPS possible. I also connected this monitor to my Xbox Series X. Though it is only a 1080P monitor, older Xbox One X games that have received an FPS boost showcase really well on this screen. I intended on playing Fallout 4 for a few minutes to test it, but I was enjoying the experience so much, I sat for a whole 3 hours. Some things I feel this monitor would benefit from is a display port or a second HDMI port. Most gamers I know have their gaming PC and at least one console. Though there is a VGA port, that’s not something gamers use. Another thing I’d like to see is the ability to tilt the monitor, even if it is just a small up and down adjustment. --- VALUE --- For the price, your games will look great at 1080P with 75 FPS. --- APPROVAL --- This is an excellent entry level gaming monitor for any computer setup. If you don’t plan on streaming or having a multiple monitor setup, this would make a great go-to monitor.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Solid Gaming Monitor- August 20, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to run a full size monitor from my ASUS ROG 16” gaming laptop and this Acer sounded like a good candidate. It did not disappoint. It’s sharp and clear and adds about 7” from my laptop screen. I also like the thin bezel in case I want to add another one. It ran all my games crisp, clean and smooth and doesn't take up a lot of room on my desk top. What else can you ask for in this price range. The only down side is my ASUS ROG 16” has such an awesome monitor that I’d really have to go high end on a monitor to get the same result. If you want bigger the Acer Nitro 27” is also a great choice. Solid monitor.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent, high value, entry level monitor- August 24, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is about as simple of a set-up as you are going to get for a monitor. The stand goes together in minutes, and you could use a coin to tighten it. No tools are required unless you want to vesa mount it. Which is something this does provide. The specifications may say this is not wall mountable, but it does have that feature. Monitor settings are easily navigated with the buttons tucked in and around on the left-back side of the monitor. Using the provided stand you can tilt this up and down but not left and right which requires moving the base as well. I was able to push this monitor to it’s limit of 1080p 75Hz output using my personal computer. Modern games at max settings were looking gorgeous. Just flawless and fluid. The results were super consistent and enjoyable. (PC Specs bellow) Where this unit will shine is in a close dorm setting or for a first PC build monitor where you don’t want to spend a significant amount of money on a monitor. I could have used this very monitor all the way through college. It is very much an entry level monitor but the value I put on this is rather high given what it offers and, as odd as this may sound, considering the current state of graphics card prices and availability.
