Acer 19inch Widescreen LCD + ATI AIW VE Video Card

Introduction

Sometimes it�s more important to choose a high-quality product that suits your needs rather than choosing the fanciest, more expensive one.Today, we will be testing that theory when we examine a couple of products that Geeks.com sent us: an Acer 19� widescreen LCD and an ATI All-in-wonder VE video card.While these two items don�t offer some of the features that the latest or more expensive models provide, will they prove to be a good value?Let�s see.

Starting with the monitor, the Acer 19� widescreen LCD monitor comes packaged in a cardboard box with a carrying handle and a list of features on the outside.Opening the box, the monitor is well secured in a custom styrofoam form, with a separate box containing the accessories.

Unwrapping the monitor from its padded bag, we find an all-black, thin, LCD monitor with a protective plastic covering on the screen.I have not experienced a widescreen monitor before andI immediately noticed the different aspect ratio as compared to a standard monitor.The package also comes with the standard power cable, VGA cable, and a hard copy and CD containing instructions.
