Just scored an Acer 24" for under $200!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Wow, if I just strait up told you guys I scored an Acer 24" monitor for under $200, you'd think I'd be lieing about it. Well, I'm really not. Since Circuit City is going out of business, they've been having a lot of sales and clearances on a lot of things in the store. Hell, they've been having crazy sales even after Black Friday. I didn't just make this thread to just show off but to also say CHECK YOUR LOCAL CIRCUIT CITY FOR AWESOME SALES!!!
Acer model is P241W with high adjustment 90 degree rotation. Stand has a name on it and it's from "Neo-Flex". Don't know if these come stock with the Acer or not but I've been looking around and haven't seen any Acer with a Neo-Flex stand.

I swear, Microsoft 360 wheel for $55... They ran out so I couldn't snatch one.

Very nice man, Gotta love when monitor prices go down. Mine's a 22" acer but I got it for 139.99$ on sale at futureshop like last year =P and still no dead pixels!

Ha, how do you like that? The monitor just broke on me in under a day. Not surprised as it as a display model and was displayed since February 20th. Still, when it was still working, it was awesome. Didn't have a chance to test games on it yet. Ah well, lets see how well Acer's RMA policy is or how well CC will handle this problem.

I just got mine for $229.99. 24" of pure sexyness, Wish mine would have been 179.99 but it was still worth it! Thanks for the heads up about circuit city! +rep

Acer isnt bad for RMA. Pretty fast setup over the phone, just upset that I had to pay shipping to Acer. I think I had it back in 2 weeks or less.

Since it was a floor model CC will tell you its as is and just tell you to take it up with Acer RMA department.

I have the same or similar P241WAID from Circuit City about 8 months ago.. Paid way more but a great display! I had to go through 2 with bad pixels at first and they finally got me a new one shipped in that's what I'm on now.

Apparently someone didn't house the boxes well enough and some damage from dropping occured tho the retail box showed no signs.
