Excellent monitor

Perfect monitor for the price. Has a dead pixel though and the warranty does not covers it. It must have 2 dead pixels at least to get it fixed. Also disappointed by bestbuy for showing it up near me on their website and then, had nothing in-store. So, once shipped, getting this dead pixel kind of p***** me off. Parfait moniteur pour le prix. A par contre un pixel mort et la garantie ne le couvre pas. Ça prend au moins deux pixels pour toucher la garantie. Aussi, désappointé par bestbuy pour montrer l'article proche de chez nous et finalement il n'y a rien en magasin. Alors, après m'être fait posté mon écran, il y avait un pixel de mort et ça m'a fait c****.

Best Value 144 Hz Monitor.

Absolutely the best 144hz monitor in the market with it's good value in price.

  • from Hampton, NB

DVI Cable

As others have posted you need a DVI cable. This is basic knowledge HDMI DOES NOT support anything over 60hz. Please do your research about a product before purchasing.

Dead pixel line

Dead pixel line across the middle of the screen. Cheap 144hz monitor After 1wk and a half a clear one pixel tall line appeared on the screen. Returned screen and bought another brand's monitor. Would not recommend

  • from Toronto, ON

thank you


  • from Gatineau, QC

tumbs up...

No complaints for the price, one missing star, because no height adjustment.

  • from Huntsville

POOR 144Hz support

update:You HAVE TO use dual DVI cable without using adapter, otherwise the monitor DOES NOT support 144hz.

  • from Huntsville, ON

I was hoping a HDMI

Didnt really noticed if it's 144HZ, heard from another review that it requires using it's DVI cable, turns out thats why. I wish it came with 144Hz on HDMI by default...

  • from Toronto, ON

144 Hz machine for the right price

Bought a more expensive 4k monitor but results were not that great, this monitor is better than the 4k monitor i brought a few weeks ago. Would definitely recommend, it's the right size and the right price. Go for it :). This is only 1920 x 1080 but looks better than the 4K monitor. Very pleased with the purchase + highly recommended!!!!

  • from Markham, ON

Gaming monitor

I spent 250 on this and I got my money's worth if not more, i see so many people by benq monitors that are the same value but instead cost 500, it's a great gaming experience

  • from Kitchener, ON

Amazing screens with highest quality

I switched from (60hz), 5ms response to this screen. And the difference is unbelievable. At first I used DVI cable but I saw red dots on the screen and for sec I thought it has an issue. However, before panicking I said let me use HDMI cable and the resolution was crazy. All red dots disappeared. Highly recommended screen.

  • from Brampton, ON

Very good starter gaming monitor

Makes a lot of difference coming from a 60 hz monitor. monitor size is not too big but also not too small would definitely recommend for fps gaming. smooth gaming and comes with 3d vision 5 stars

  • from Prince George, BC

Great gaming monitor at a great price.

I ran into nothing but issues getting my games to run when Microsoft pushed an update to Windows 10. This update forced games to think they were running at 144hz and if you didn't have a monitor that was 144hz they would simply freeze up and occasionally crash. Shopping around I learned of this monitor and found it to be the most affordable option for not only 144hz, but also the 1ms needed for most fast games. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to up their game but not have to sacrifice a goat to the elder gods just to afford the thing.

  • from Halifax, NS


Worked great as soon as plugged in. Can notice a big difference in gameplay or even on youtube.

  • from North Bay, ON

Great 144hz Monitor

Best value for 144hz gaming monitor. Came from a regular 1080p 60hz panel and what a difference. make sure you have the hardware to run your games above 60fps (60hz). Even if your games only run at 90fps or higher you will notice a huge difference in game play, night and day difference. I am using the DVI cable provided and it works great.

  • from Halifax, NS

Great monitor at a fantastic price

Literally plugged it in and it worked amazingly. Key note is that you HAVE to use the DVI cable to get the 144hz option. Ensure you check the screen settings in your OS to ensure it's set at 144hz. Highly recommend this monitor. Can't beat the price for the quality.

  • from Thunder Bay, ON

No problems

Good quality monitor with no problems so far.

  • from Brampton, ON

PSA For a Great Bargain Gaming Monitor

You can't run ANY monitor at 144 hz unless you use the DVI port. It's not ACERs fault you're stupid. Great monitor. Great price. Mounts easily. I'd buy it again if it wasn't redundant to have 2.

  • from Scarborough, ON

Garbage customer support

Called the store every 20 minutes or so for several hours trying to see if they had this in stock or if they could order it so I can come pick it up. Sadly nobody picked up. This isnt the first time I've had trouble getting a hold of ANYONE to pick up the phone, its like they just dont have someone there to take calls. Quickly tilted me.

  • from Oakville, ON


I purchased this monitor for it's immersive 144hz display, however I was sadly disappointed. The only way I can access this 144hz display is via a vga port. With just my luck my gpu (gtx 960) is not compatible with vga. So essentially I bought a 144hz monitor with it's highest refresh rate being 60 hz. Very disappointed.

  • from Brampton, ON

Capped at 60 hz

Tried literally everything and figured out that it's pretty much got to be the DVI-D cable that came with the monitor being defective now I have to deal with contacting support to see if they can replace it. If that doesn't work out I have to spend more money on replacing it myself... Overall the monitor is good and the menu is easy to use.

  • from newmarket

144hrz monitor...

If only it had a thinner bezel. make sure you can game at 2k with 150fps. or at 1080p w/e. best value gaming monitor.

  • from Oakville, ON

Great Entry level 144 hz monitor

If you can put up with some not terrible, but still noticeable ghosting, this monitor will be fine for you at 144hz, but i do no like ghosting so turning it down to 120 to activate nvidias light boost thing was a great way to get the higher (than 60) refresh rate with 0 ghosting.

  • from Brandon, MB

Great Monitor

For the price, it's a great game monitor offering 144Hz at 24" when on a budget. I like the fashionable stand which includes a tilt (but no height adjustment). The menu is intuitive and makes it easy to quickly adjust the brightness (was at 100% out of the box).

  • from Grande Prairie, AB

The best and cheapest 144Hz monitor! That you won't regret buying!

This badboy here is amazing of all time gaming monitors especially if you are looking for the cheapest price to save more bucks of your pocket, well this is the only one you can have and i didn't regret buying it. For those who play CS:GO and looking for 144Hz monitor this is the best amazing monitor for you this monitor helps me get to Global Elite, So if you are afraid to spend alot of money for just a monitor this ACER Monitor is FOR YOU! Guaranteed 100% Amazing!

  • from Cobourg, Ont

Acer 24" 144hz

Not a bad monitor for the price. Paid [price] on sale. Only issue is the monitor settings buttons. Not like most monitors. Other than that I would recommend.

  • from Richmond, BC

Don't buy this monitor just because it's cheaper.

Don't buy this monitor just because it's cheaper than most of the competitors. I purchased this monitor because it was the cheapest 144hz monitor available in the market. Unfortunately it flickers and lags when I play fps games like CS Go. It's fine when surfing the net and watching videos but that is not the purpose of buying a 144hz monitor. The stand is also ugly and not adjustable. If you really want a good quality 144hz monitor for gaming go for Benq or Asus.

  • from Granby, QC

Poor setup

Worse setup menu and buttons I seen on any monitor. 90% of option are greyed out. Going back to the fools who made it.

  • from Orangeville, ON

Great monitor

It is exactly what was ordered. Anything less is uncivilized when it comes to gaming. zero tearing, zero ghosting, zero problems. For the price best choice for a 144 hz monitor.

  • from Dartmouth, NS

Awesome Monitor

Very pleased with this purchase, would definitely recommend!

  • from Toronto, ON

Great monitor

Excellent product, and great value for the money. My only criticism is that the on-screen menu adjustments are not intuitive and I never could figure out how to adjust the brightness. And this is a very bright monitor. I ended up using f.lux software to adjust the brightness.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Awesome product awesome price

You get exactly what you pay for, and all cables are included. Best 144hz I ever bought

  • from Charlottetown, PE

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Excellent Monitor, great picture

Excellent Monitor, great picture. One flaw is stand.. too low and not adjustable.

  • from Calgary, AB

Great for the price.

Great for gaming, price was right. Couldn't ask for a better monitor for [price].

  • from Brampton, ON

Great monitor

Great monitor and clear.

  • from Victoria, BC

Awesome monitor

Bought this monitor about a month ago, works amazing, and is seriously smooth. Make sure when you get it that you use the DVI cable to get the maximum 144hz, HDMI doesn't exceed 60hz apparently. Makes gaming mega intense. Worth the money I think.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Best price

This is probably the best rated gaming monitor of lower end on the market. I asked for price match and in the end it was sold at [price]. The only problem of it is that it can not adjust height. Might be problematic.

  • from Sidney, BC

Best price for the performance

Since I purchased this monitor, I utilize the full performance of my gpu, everthing went all smooth, you can already tell even on desktop and mouse. Will never go back to 60hz.

  • from Kingston, ON


I've only been using this monitor for a few days but its honestly the best one i've ever used. Amazing for gaming, especially with consoles. A must have for any hardcore gamer

  • from Red Deer, AB

Great Gaming Monitor

Listen up, if anyone is looking for a gaming monitor that's 144HZ then buy this right here.. Its cheaper than anyother 144hz monitor and performs exactly the same... Buy this up.
