    "The Acer G226HQL seems like a good monitor with great price. Reviews look good too. But one thing to note is that this monitor doesn't have HDMI compatibility. So if you need HDMI ports, this is not the best monitor for you."

    "My son had a monitor that just died on him. I didn't want to invest in an expensive one because at 12 years old, he is not the kindest to them. I found the HP Pavilion 22cwa on sale on amazon for 89.99, you cant beat that. This has been fantastic, it's not huge at 21 inches, but it worked well with his pc, and his gaming. It was really easy to set you. The color on it is really beautiful, it is just a great monitor for the price"

    "I bought a Sceptre E205W-1600 V1 as my second monitor, and I'm really happy with it. It's an inexpensive monitor, but it has VGA and HDMI connection, with a pair of built-in speakers as well. Don't look further, and if you need a cheap monitor go for this one!"

    "Serviceable monitor, won't win any awards but it will please shoppers who are trying to save money. A regular monitor from a company that makes decent quality panels. Buy it if you're trying to be thrifty."

    "This is an okay monitor if you're on a tight budget and you won't be using it much. The main complaint I have about this monitor is that the color is horrible. It makes the entire picture look off and it's honestly hard to look at for long."
