nothing wrong with it. However for another $50 you could have got the Acer G24. It has a 50,000:1 c/r. The one you got has a 3,000:1 c/r.

I have the Acer G24 and I must say it's insane how good the picture quality is. Best purchase I made in a long time.

I just got my monitor last night and it is beautiful... I could have gone bigger than the 24" with less pic quality but I don't believe I would have been as happy as I am with this one... It is so bright and clear, especially when sitting next to my older one...


Acer P243WAid Black-Silver 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 400 cd/m2 3000:1 ACM - Retail

I highly recommend this to anyone looking...
