Without seeing them in action next to each other, I would go with the Acer on reputation and experience with their products.

And what about strictly looking and the specifications of them?

The Sceptre looks better on paper, but the 4000:1 contrast ratio can be deceiving depending on how it's measured. The Acer has a slightly better viewing angle.

I've been using an Acer V223W for the last 6 months or so and am really impressed with it. Excellent monitor in my opinion.

I don't see it listed at newegg, but I suggest looking at this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009157



This one looks good. Just depend upon how much you want to spend.

Thanks that looks good, I like it. How are the viewing angles on those? Because I can lean back in my computer chair and I am a good bit lower then the monitor. The angle on my current Sceptre really suck. Even though its stated to be the same as everything else

Hmm, I see. I like the specs on it better as well, but I am kind of afraid to try one again. I didnt have a great experience with this one.

just for reference I am (was) rocking the SCEPTRE x22wg-Gamer Black

I have had nothing but good experiences with Acer hardware. At home and at work. Ironically, I was skeptical when we started buy Acer hardware at work.

When I bought this Acer V223W a while back I couldn't believe how good the screen resolution was. Not size, clarity. Keep in mind that I don't have experience with some of the other monitors. So investigate all of the suggestions.

Hmm, I see.


I would love to try a bigger monitor then my 22'', especially two of them.

To bad the nearest costco is about an hours drive away, or I would at them in person.

It's pretty decent for a TN panel. No complaints here.
