Another 22 inch LCD monitor
The well-known and loved Acer has launched a new monitor on markets worldwide. The device is called Acer ET.EV3WP.E04 and it’s supposed to be among the best of its kind. Acer is popular for the quality of its products, but does this new monitor rise up to expectations or not? We decided to test their latest monitor and here is our review.
Unusual panel resolution
First off, let’s see how the ET.EV3WP.E04 LCD monitor did in terms of design. As usual with all of the company’s products, this monitor is sleek, stylish and elegant with its piano black color. Measuring 22.2″ x 5″ x 18.2″ and weighing 5.98kg, the device is lighter and slimmer than CRTs; but, when testing the monitor for our review, we still had to lift it with two hands, because otherwise we could have easily dropped it. The latest ET.EV3WP.E04 is a 22″ LCD flat panel display. It comes with the following specifications: 1680 x 1050 resolution, 16:9 image aspect ratio, 50.000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 16.7 million colors, 5ms Response Time and 250 cd/m2 brightness.
Good contrast ratio
The latter provided, when we tested the device for our review, both accurate and clear colors and it helped us experience great viewing conditions when playing a game or watching a HD movie; the fast response time, we were pleased to see, produced minimal tearing on high res games when the sync was turned off, very minimal tearing on high res when the sync was on and we noticed no ghosting whatsoever; moreover, it made this one of the fastest monitors out there. While the 16.7 million colors spec provided natural-looking images with very beautiful colors, the 50.000:1 dynamic contrast ratio was enough, when we tested the TV, to produce, through dimensions and contrast, brighter whites along with good black levels. The latter were improved when compared to those on the device’s predecessors.
Beautiful colors provided
Other advantage of the 50.000:1: it offered beautiful and vibrant colors which radiated off the screen and made for a great viewing experience; overall image performance was, therefore, superb with rich details, deep contrast and very sharp images. 16:9 image aspect ratio helped us watch movies or view photos over a broader cinematic area which resulted into an exciting viewing experience.
The rear of the latest ET.EV3WP.E04 sports various inputs and ports to which you can connect multiple media devices with real high-definition content. When it came to viewing angle, Acer’s newest monitor featured 170° horizontal viewing angles thanks to which we could look at the monitor from any position and still see everything clearly. We could also easily surf the Internet, write documents, work with Photoshop and much more. Gaming was an excellent experience overall.
Integrated stereo speakers
As for sound performance, the ET.EV3WP.E04 monitor boasts integrated stereo speakers which offer a total power of 20 Watts and good audio quality.
For those who care about the environment, they will be happy to find out that this monitor assesses eight categories of environmental attributes; some of them are the following: reduction/elimination of environmentally sensitive materials, energy conservation, material selection and end-of-life management.
The product comes with a 3-year limited warranty.
In conclusion, the latest Acer ET.EV3WP.E04 is one of the best monitors out there and is sure worth a buy.
