The design of the Acer is basic, but quite sleek I thought. The Acer monitor showed an input lag of typically 10ms, but did range up to 20ms in some cases. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the differences between Acers 22″ monitors. If you are planning on watching a lot of movies on your screen, you may want to consider a screen which is VA or IPS based, but if you are an occasional viewer, and want to get a cheaper screen, the Acer is pretty decent.

However, dark scenes can become a bit of a problem where viewing angles are concerned, since vertical changes in contrast can make the scenes very difficult to see.
