Review: The Acer G6 is ideal for a dual monitor setup or for people on a tight budget who wants an affordable yet decent monitor without any major compromises. The monitor features a 1920 x 1080 resolution which is great for everyday tasks, and combines Adaptive Contrast Management and Acer eColor for outstanding contrast and accurate colors. The display is bright and clear. Initially, the picture settings can hurt your eyes as it is way too bright but you can easily adjust the monitors brightness and contrast to a better or lower level. With a 60Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response time, users will not notice any lag even when playing games. Eco-friendly, the Acer G6 also consumes less power than other monitors, rated at only 26 watts while in operation and 450 mW on standby. The size of the G6 makes it a great primary or secondary monitor. Keep in mind that it has no VESA mount screw holes, so you might need to purchase an adapter or just leave it sitting on your desk. Aside from being thin, the monitor is lightweight and easy to assemble. With the stand attached, it only weighs 5.29 lbs and measures 15.12" x 21.57" x 6.61" (H x W x D). There are only three parts; the stand, the connector and the monitor itself. A lot of pressure is needed though in order to snap them into place. The stand leaves a lot to be desired as it isnt very sturdy and does not tilt nor rotate. Raising or lowering the height of the monitor is impossible too. These limitations cause some black areas to appear grayish when viewed on certain angles. Set-up is pretty much plug-and-play. The Acer G6 lacks an HDMI port but it has DVI and VGA ports, and comes with a DVI, as well as a VGA cable, to allow users to connect the monitor to computers without any hassle. Finally, an external power supply is already included.
