supposedly great colour reproduction.

To be honest £400 with only VGA isn't good enough, at least DVI should be in there.

I mean surely they appreciate that movies will be watched on there so they should have considered some kind of hdcp compliance.

Anyway.

my brother is having a nightmare at the moment with acer tech support fixing his monitor (19" TFT)...

3 weeks to 'fix' then came back with 'more than'15 dead pixels (had zero when i sent it) and the screen itself came back filthy, god knows how it got past quality control.

he sent back again now its been 9 days and still nothing so it looks like its going to be another 3 weeks... i just hope its fixed when it gets back :( He is stuck using a 15" CRT which luckily i had spare.

I have dealt with other companies even more budget brands that just send a new one pick up the old one, i would not of being bothered about the 3 week wait if they had even bothered to fire it up and check it was working ok... i mean how do you miss more than 15 dead pixels (especially when there was a large cluster of them together.

something worth thinking about when spending that much imo

Hi,

Said it before and ill say it again. I used to work for acer and they may as well have no quality control in their repair center. Service level on warranty claims is truly shocking. They might be good value just prey nothing goes wrong with it. I gaurantee you will have a nightmare. 3 weeks as it happens is fast we had people waiting 3 months.

Cheers,
Hugest

hahaha well it came back today, and guess what 11 dead pixels... :mad: so that will the 3rd time its been back since january.... nice

would it be too hard for the engineer to turn the monitor on and check the if it 'still' has problems :confused: i mean a cluster of 4 pixels right in the centre cant be too hard to spot surely..

I must say acer customer services couldnt give a flying **** either.

it must have cost them more, to keep picking up and sending out by courier than it would have to send me a new one.


RANT OVER :confused:
