22-Inch Acer Widescreen LCD Monitor

My 22

My 22" flat-panel monitor from Acer gives me lots of screen real estate at a surprisingly affordable price.

I've been using dual monitors for many years -- since around 1990 or so. My need for screen real estate has continually increased, to the point that I recently went to a dual 22" system. I have two 22" Acer widescreen monitors on my desktop right now, and I frequently find myself wishing for even more.

I had been a die-hard Viewsonic user for a long time. Prior to my current set-up, I had a 19" Viewsonic CRT alongside a 19" Viewsonic LCD. But the old CRT was fading away, and my husband wanted my 19" flat-panel LCD, so I went looking for replacement monitors.

I was astounded at how much the LCDs have come down in price for big 22" widescreen flatpanels, and I realized I could have 2 of those babies for a reasonable price. So I went for it.

They include software with the monitors, but like most things with my Mac, it was a simple plug-and-play to hook them up. I did a little fiddling with the monitor calibration in my system settings to get the brightness and color the way I like them. There are also controls on the monitor itself to adjust the color balance, etc., and they were easy enough to figure out.

One of the first things you notice is that the display is bright! So bright that, for the first time in my entire life, I have the brightness set below its maximum setting. I like bright, so this is a good thing for me, but people who don't like their monitors so bright can adjust the brightness down a few notches.

About the only thing I don't like about it is that base isn't adjustable. That's not a big problem; I just stick a couple of books underneath to raise the monitor to the correct height.

Neither of my Acers has any dead pixels, which is an important point. Most warranties don't cover dead pixels unless you have several of them, and whenever I order a new monitor I always hold my breath and hope for the best. A single dead pixel down in a lower corner wouldn't bother me, but a couple of dead pixels smack-dab in the middle of the screen would bother me a lot. I've been lucky so far with these Acers and with the Viewsonics I've had previously.

The 22 inches of screen real estate is fantastic, especially for the price. At any given time I'm likely to have a lot of windows open in a lot of different programs: My main mail window plus one or two individual emails, at least 2 or 3 browser windows, my text editor, images in Photoshop, Finder directory windows, Skype, various utilities such as Yojimbo, my FTP program, my calendar and address book, a couple of Terminal windows, and frequently Windows™ windows (via Parallels on my Mac). So I need lots of screen real estate, and these 2 22-inch monitors give me what I need (most of the time, anyway).

You can find Acer 22" widescreen monitors at Amazon, and bargains on Acer monitors can also be found on eBay.
