March 10, 2007 -- 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.
April 05, 2006 -- The Acer AL1732 Prestige is certainly one of the best sub-$200 17-inch LCDs presently available on the market. Not only does it offer DVI and VGA input but it also comes equipped with an anti-reflective coating, cable management abilities, integrated speakers, and a metal stand. In addition, Acer's Prestige lineup is a winner of the International Forum Design.
July 07, 2005 -- The last time we were engaged to look at an Acer product was when reviewing two Acer AL1715b 17" LCD displays. Today, Acer is floating around Phoronix again as we take a look at another recent offering, the AL1714CB-8. This 17" LCD is very similar to that of the AL1715b except it offers a blazing fast 8ms response and other competitive features for the budget consumer.
January 31, 2005 -- Acer is undoubtedly a leader in the digital world, ranking among the top 10 branded PC vendors, and manufacturing a whole array of products from notebook computers to video projectors. In this article today, we will be trying out one of Acer's LCD monitors, the AL1715b. Not only do we have one AL1715b in our lab today, but two! With its 12ms response time, we will be sure to check just how well these LCD flat panels can handle some gaming, along with every day tasks, as we go dual head in Fedora!
