an amazing monitor if you get it on sale for 149 CAD. at it's regular price it is a bit pricey for what you're getting; i'd wait for amazon to restock and have it drop in price to 149-159 CAD.
- best IPS monitor near 24 inches for the price
- images are just straight up better on an IPS panel
- once you buy this monitor, you will never want to look at bezels again (yes it is that nice) - two of them together would be amazing but for gaming/youtube, i recommend incorporating a panel actually designed for gaming into a multi-screen set up (reason below)
- amazing for movies and content
- suitable for light games but doesn't compare to a screen that can actually drive over 60 fps
- it does tilt, like with all acer monitor stands, dont be afraid of breaking the screen and it WILL tilt towards or away from you. the monitor must be fully assembled before tilting; you cant tilt it while its partly assembled when you’re unboxing. hold the top of the screen and the stand simultaneously and put your back into it
- its full non-on-sale price - you'd probably want to get this on sale
- not vesa compatible which is fine if you don't plan on mounting in the future (but should definitely take this into account if you plan on creating a "forever" set up; i'd recommend looking into VESA mounting for "forever" setups)
- in reality, it's not a gaming monitor but that's why i have the GN246hl beside it
overall 8/10 monitor for $149
