    Stupid question, but I'm going to get a new monitor tomorrow.
    I'm looking at Acer LCD's but haven't seen anything on them about a Mac, Just wanted to make sure it'd be compatible, before I spend the money. :rolleyes:

    I see no reason that it wouldn't be but I just want to make sure. Thanks guys.

    I just picked up a ACER P221W last week and have been very hapy with it running with my Macbook. Compatibility is not an issue, and the picture seems great to me too. Have fun with your new display!!

    I actually ended up going with a Dell SE198WFP 19''.

    I was short a few bucks on the Acer 20'' they had. :p


    Thanks for the input. :)

    Acer Display

    Hey i need some help with my macbook... i just bought a new mini dvi to vga adapter. i hooked it up to my acer p221w and the monitor says there is a cable connected but there is no incoming signal...? i have no idea what the problem is and i heard that from "Geek squad" themselves.
    Also i can see the second monitor under "Displays" an can rearrange it and what ever but still nothing to monitor itself. any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Any display that supports your input type will work--and that's the majority of monitors. (I'd say most probably end up hooking up their LCD via DVI and, depending on your Mac, some sort of adapter, like Mini DisplayPort-to-DVI--or directly if you're lucky enough to have the same connector on both ends. But if you really have a G4 cube as in your sig, IIRC you'll need either a relatively expensive ADC to DVI connector or a monitor that accepts VGA input.)

    I have an Acer X183H. I love it. I wish I could have gotten a bigger one, but this was the largest one that could fit on my desk. I love it! The colors are not as vivid as my MBP's display, but I got this Acer display on sale for $110 with a $20 mail in rebate, which brought the price down to $90. It is an amazing display, for the price! :D:D:D

    I have Acer H233H.
    Got 1 dead pixel, not a big deal to me.
    I just love the 80,000:1 contrast ratio.
