    Quite true. I've had good luck with Acer over the years past about 2006 but others say they are junk. I don't move mine around much though.

    I think they are tied to HP. One of mine had a HP number on the box when I received it.
    Yes, me too, quite happy with Acer since 2007, 5610z still going strong.

    Good choice and good price. I've used Acer stuff (no PCs though) in the past and always had good luck. In fact, this 23" monitor is an Acer!

    It is. I was stuck with a 17" monitor and this one came on sale at the same time I had a little extra change, so . . .
