REVIEW BY: Ramo Reviewed  Jul 11, 2008
Great LCD, the res is awesome (1680), color is great. Upgraded from 19 CRT and now have tons of space on screen and on desk. Clean and sharp during my game play of Crysis and COD4. Rec'd LCD for those who are ready to upgrade at a great price/ great quality. Buy it, well worth the investment, and warranty covered for 3 yrs.

REVIEW BY: DW Reviewed  Jul 11, 2008
My first LCD and I love it. I only regret having waited so long. This monitor is one beautiful display. Great value. Anyone complaining about the stand being flimsy must not have snapped it complelety into place. It is solid. Great colors. Crystal clear display with the DVI connection. Thank you Acer and Tiger Direct. Oh, and it was here in two days.

TechTip: Cleaning Your LCD Monitor or TV
Now that you have your new LCD Monitor or Widescreen TV, it is important to use the right products to clean it.  The wrong cleaner can damage the surface of your display.  However, there are many new cleaning products on the market designed especially for LCD displays. We recommend using a soft, lint-free cloth and a special LCD cleaner.  (You can also use a cleaner that contains any of the following:  Water, Vinegar (mixed with water), or Isopropyl alcohol).  BUT Do Not Use cleaners that contain any of the following agents: Acetone, Ethyl alcohol, Ethyl acid, Ammonia, Methyl chloride!  Important: Do not spray any liquids directly on the LCD screen. Always apply the solution to your cloth first, not directly to the parts you are cleaning. Always use a soft cotton cloth. Some materials, such as paper towels or old rags can cause scratches and damage the LCD screen.

LCD Technology: Response Time - Enabling crisp full-motion video
With the recent widespread use of PC and online games, and PCs equipped with DVD drives give users more opportunities to see moving images such as those in 3D games or action movies on screen. This increase in motion picture content means computer monitors must be able to display not only still images, but moving ones as well. Manufacturers and IT publications often cite a fast response time as an indication that a display can play videos or games with little or no blurring. Hence, we would like to share with you what response time is, and how helpful it is in determining how well an LCD display (TV or Monitor) can portray moving images.  Click here for our Guide To LCD Response Times
