Flickering Acer Monitor

 | July 23, 2008 2:53 AM

After many days of internal debate I finally decided to keep my newly bought Acer 22″ LCD.  Though I had some reluctance about the Acer brand because my Acer laptop had to be mailed to Acer repair twice the laptop is working fine now and the consumer reviews of this LCD are good.  Unfortunately five days after the fourteen day return period expired my monitor started exhibiting strange flickering and I can not figure out how to get rid of it.

A call to technical support proved unhelpful.  They suggested I send it in but the cost of shipping a monitor is rather prohibitive.

Lessons learned

  1. don’t buy Acer
  2. buy from somewhere that has longer than a fourteen day return policy, like Costco
  3. spend more on a better brand, like HP or Samsung
