Acer AL2216Wbd

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm gunna buy a new 22 inch LCD monitor. I'm looking for one that is a good price, but still delivers some really good performance. I've narrowed it down and so far I really like the Acer AL2216Wbd. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009094

Now, I'm not too fluent in all the specs they give. what is contrast ratio. This monitor has a 700:1 contrast ratio. Is that good? I've been looking around and the newest samsung has a 20,000:1 contrast ratio. But otherwise I really like this monitor, especially for the price.

What are your thoughts, anyone out there own this same one?

I love Acer monitors for just what you are talking about, great performance for the price. Contrast ratio is important but can be misleading, a lot of makers now are posting the dynamic contrast ratio wich is totally unimportant. 700:1 is not the best but by far not the worst. Very respectable monitor.
