Cheers, edi!

It should only be a matter of time before we see the DVI versions dropping nearer this price. Excellent deal.

There is some discussion as to whether the dvi ones are more as they are taxed as TV's with an extra EU tariff?

No, they are not, but that decision was only made a week ago or so.

Anyway, at this resolution the lack of DVI is a serious problem. The dot clock is so high that the analog VGA input is doubt to cause signal degradation. Also the format of 16:9 is not really useful on a PC, and it means there is less screen area than on a 16:10 22" monitor. Overall that makes it a pretty bad product, and the price does not save it.

Thanks for the info re the taxation

Re the usability (ignoring the vga quality issue). Standard 22" seem to be 1650 x 1050. I would find the extra screen width useful when working with 2 documents side by side?

1920x1080 v 1920x1200 - the difference is 11%.

This 23” 16/9 screen has almost the same vertical resolution as a 17” non-widescreen monitor which has a resolution of 1280x1024, which is why some people find them disappointing.

#14
Good find if you ask me, albeit, DVI not included, but for that price you cant really complain can you ?

Not strictly true, Acer used to have bad customer support as far as google searches went..however speaking from personal experience (as of today actually) I called them up last monday as my 22" Monitor had a power fault after owning it for just over a year, guy on phone was courteous, case ID was logged, shipping tracked via DHL whom collected it on Tuesday, shipped friday repaired, received it today with the same original carton it came in..6 days in total repaired.

So my experience of Acer has been very positive. This monitor on offer here though not having DVI at that size isn't a good deal, considering I had my 22" DVI Acer on sale just over a year ago for £130 I am sure there are better deals out there, sacrificing the extra inch and going DVI. As far as Acer go though, no complaints from me, apart from some manufacturers offer 3 years warranty, Acer provide 2, however their customer support is fine from my experience...and I am soon to complain against manufacturers who are slack.

I got one of these monitors recently, so thought you might like to read my views on it.

It's obviously a budget monitor, but for the price the image quality is very good & despite only having a vga connection there is no dot crawl, ghosting etc that often happens with this type of connection (note: my pc is an Asus eee Box with dvi output - so I use the DVI/VGA connector that came with the eee box).
Being a budget monitor there are a couple of things to be aware of:

i) If the brightness is set to anything less than 100% it makes a terrible noise !
You can get round this problem, by adjusting the contrast & RGB settings, but I suspect the power drain is always at max as a result.

ii) You need to use the Auto button to get a good quality picture.
Initially I found I had to press the Auto button every time I switched the PC & Monitor on, but this seems to have settled down now.
If the Auto feature circuitry goes wrong then I think it would pretty difficult to tune the picture manually.

Re the comments on vertical resolution - yes it probably is the biggest drawback, but it's one heck of monitor for the money !

Cheers...
