    Are they good? Have you seen other monitors and compared them?

    Westinghouse monitors are not too bad. Certainly not one of the best, but there gets to be a point where it's hard to tell the difference. My friends 20" is pretty good. Colors just seem a little "flat" compared to my viewsonic.

    Well, you are only one person. & only 8% of the people on Newegg had anything bad to say about it.

    Yeah, I just want a great game/movie watching experience.

    I'll can tell you this. It doesn't matter who made what, they send bad stuff out all of the time.

    I do have to say we have a lot of ACER stuff at work. And we love their stuff that they have made in the last year.


    I bought my monitor at the store on a closeout sale, but if I ordered one it might be this one.

    So, very important. It doesn't have the best brightness I've seen, but...that is alright probably, right?

    Probably, I'm not an expert at monitors.
