Anyone Have An Acer X193W?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been looking around on Newegg for a new monitor, and I found out they have 19" 1680x1050 monitors. The one I'm eying right now is an Acer X193W, and I like the specs, and I especially like the price. Does anyone have this monitor, and can you tell me the pros/cons and why you like it if you do?

By the way, I'll be upgrading from an Acer X191W, the 1440x900 version.

Figured I would chime in, got one in today, sits right between two AL2016Ws, and its GOOD! although it has a real flimsy stand and not quite as tall as the specs say,I am impressed, great colors and contrast. No dead pixels...I say its a good deal!

I had two of these Acers. They were okay units. Solid picture, respectable size, okay viewing angles, etc. They didn't do anything that was overly negative or positive in my opinion. I have been spoiled by 22-24in lcd monitors so that could be why I wasn't overly impressed with these units. I gave one to each of my sisters and they absolutely love them for what it is worth.

The only reason I bought them was because I got them at bestbuy for 119 each at the end of May. At that price, how could I resist.

I got one a few days ago and it is amazing. The resolution is perfect for a 19" and the colors look great. Very very slight bleeding at top and bottom. I use it with my PS3 too at 1080p and displays it no problem. I would recommend it to anyone.

Thanks, +Rep to you in a second.

It just looks like a good deal to me, more pixels per square inch than a 2560x1600 30", and it's only $159.99 on Newegg.

My friend has one. I'm not a fan of the colors on it, its WAY to bright/vibrant. We tried playing with the settings to and it just doesn't look right. I mean, it's still decent (especially at $120, which is what Best Buy had them on sale for awhile back), but it wouldn't be my first choice.

How did you get your PS3 to work on this monitor? I have one and have yet to been able to get it to display my PS3. I just keep getting input errors.
