While not our primary focus at Phoronix, in the past we had reviewed the Acer AL1714CB, AL1732 Prestige, and dual AL1715b LCD monitors. Even though Acer's LCDs are not nearly as popular as those from Dell are, we have been very fond of the models that we had looked at in the past. Being nearly a year since we looked at the AL1732 Prestige, which was a phenomenal display, we once again chased down another new Acer monitor. In this review we will be looking at the Acer AL2223Wd Office Line 22" LCD monitor. The Acer AL2223Wd monitor has a recommended resolution of 1680 x 1050 with its WSXGA+ screen and the viewing angles are 160 degrees for both horizontal and vertical. Other specifications include a 300cd/m2 brightness, 800:1 contrast ratio, and 5ms response time. Both VGA and DVI are supported. For what it's worth, this display is also Windows Vista certified.

The monitor arrived at our location in a fairly large cardboard box. Inside of this box the monitor was sandwiched between two large layers of Styrofoam while all of the accessories remained on one side. In addition to the LCD monitor and its base were the AL2223Wd user manual, one VGA cable, on DVI cable, one power cable, and one audio cable. In addition to the Styrofoam, protecting the monitor was a plastic cover over the LCD screen and a plastic bag that had protected the entire monitor. Acer's LCDs are backed by a three year limited warranty.
