I've been looking to buy a monitor. My current one is a piece of junk. However, I don't know much about monitors. Anybody have any experience with ACER? I was thinking of getting this monitor. Not cheap but not as expensive as some of them that I've seen.

I like some of the Gateway monitors, and the Dell monitors are great also!
I have no experience with the Acer.

FWIW - I got a 32" Sharp Aquos for a monitor and I love it!

I have 2 Viewsonic flat panels and 2 Viewsonic CRT's. No complaints about any of them. Make sure you understand your resolution requirements

Lite-on builds monitors for Dell and HP, Acer is one of the few companies that builds their own monitors. As for quality, the Acer monitors enjoy a very good reputation.

On a side note...Lite-on's manufacturing plant in China had a fire recently and their product line is going to be impacted.
