Acer 24" LCD Monitor now $499 @ Computer Alliance!!

22 July 2007

Just spotted this 24" Acer AL2416WD monitor while I was browsing a few shopping comparison sites, and it struck me as a good price.

I have a 24" widescreen monitor myself (it's a Dell however), and the screen size is absolutely great.

Here's the important bits of the spec:
It's a 24" monitor, and it has a 6ms response rate, which IMHO is perfect for gaming or watching movies. It has VGA and DVI inputs. Brightness 500cd/m2 and Contrast Ratio 800:1. Warranty: 3 year and 1920x1200 WUXGA Resolution.

    Yeah I know. I've been cross checking the good acer deals with the cashback offers just in case there is a good bargain, but no specific one for this model :)

    Have edited the deal as the base price is $499 - which is still comparitively good for this model.

    Interesting - when this post was first made the price was $699. 7 months later its dropped another $200. Redundancy :)

    After reading into this more, apparently in July they started manufacturing these units with cheaper LCD panels, which would explain the price drops.

    ahhh - did they now. How sly is that. Get the reputation and perception out there and then change the components. What did they put in there ?

What do you think?
