Been looking for a reasonably cheap 24" 1080p monitor and stumbled across this. It's a 1080p, IPS, 27" Acer monitor with a 5ms response time. Looks pretty good for the price if you ask me.

Edit - Looks like this is part of their Boxing day deals which I believe end at the end of December so not much time to pick one up.

Hot!

But is this monitor good enough for gaming?

That was my first concern but I checked the response time on my current monitor, which is 5ms, and I have no problem playing games so this should be fine.

hmm..and another thing. this monitor is 1920 x 1080..the ppi won't be as high as a 24".

Which would you suggest. 24" 1080p or 27" 1080p

I'm not too sure as I haven't ever used a 27" monitor before but I'd say it just depends on how far away you are sat from your monitor. If you're really close then a 24" would probably be best, if you're at a decent way away from it then a 27" would probably be better. I don't think this monitor comes in 24" though so you might have to look for another.

Unfortunately no HDMI

as above, no hd socket is a deal breaker for me

Yes, that's odd.
The blurb says that it has speaker(s) but doesn't list HDMI or Audio-in in it's connections

But you can use a DVI to HDMI cable

They sell TN model

This should help anyone looking for 24" with IPS and price is fairly good compared to Aoc 24" @ PCWorld/Currys @ £129.99

Something is wrong.

If that monitor has speakers, what is the audio input?

DVI to hdmi?

looks a good price

Looking at the back and at Acer's spec sheet, it looks like it accepts a 3.5mm jack analogue input for audio. For some reason the spec sheet says it supports MHL, which might be true if you get an MHL to HDMI adapter, then split that into DVI and 3.5mm analogue... that's a lot of hassle though.

Reminder btw that there's no audio sent over DVI or VGA, even if you get a HDMI to DVI adapter.

Pretty sure this monitor has HDMI. I know the Acer website doesn't list it, but the 22" and 23" versions both have HDMI, VGA and DVI so it would be odd if the 27" didn't. Also, if you Google the model number, several websites mention that it has HDMI in their product descriptions and/or reviews.

But still, if anyone buys this from Box it would be great if they could confirm either way!

I was of the same opinion. I've seen various reviews. and all of them had HMDI ports in them ;s

If all other factors are taken out of the equation (response time, contrast ration, brightness etc.) then you won't really notice a difference between the image quality of 24" and 27". You really just need to decide which size monitor you would prefer to use. If it's going to be your main monitor then do you really want as big as 27"? I currently use a 23" and that's plenty big enough for browsing the net and doing work. I imagine 27" would feel a little too big for those tasks. So if you're going to be doing a lot of non gaming tasks on it then I'd go for the 24".

However if this isn't going to be your main monitor, or you're going to be spending most of your time gaming/watching videos, I'd go for the 27".

damn, I just blew £160 on a 27" VA monitor at Ebuyer from benQ. pondering cancelling that order now and ordering this.l

Just found this monitor on Ebuyer for £99.99. ebuyer.com/646…009 - Fantastic for the money.

Heat. Other than my experience of Acer customer support being the same as that time I accidentally walked into a brick wall, it seems a great deal.

Tempted, but after a Google, I'm still left wondering, is this monitor suitable for gaming, anyone know?

Just bought one !!!

After massively enlarging the reverse view it seems as if there is HDMI above the DVI slot.

Here's a review

I had the same issue earlier, appears to be working again now

I have had a email to say my monitor has been dispatched, I went with the free shipping option, so anything upto 5 working days, longer if it's been sent by city link!

Just Wondering

Brilliant, what is your first impressions of the monitor?



I already have a 27" Acer G276HLA LED monitor and although specs are very similar this monitor seems about 15% dimmer with white level brightness but as I'm using the LED monitor as a reference perhaps the IPS monitor is more accurate?
Regardless text and graphics are incredibly crisp and the bezel quite minimal.
Overall I'm very pleased for the price.
