Expert review by : Mike Jennings (expertreviews.co.uk)

Acer KG221Q review: Not the best monitor, but it's fantastic value for money

 

Loses out on size and colour accuracy, but it's still a high-contrast FreeSync gaming panel for a very reasonable price

Very reasonable price ; AMD FreeSync support

Smaller screen size than its rivals ; No DisplayPort input

The Acer may not have the best colours or uniformity, but this surprisingly cheap panel is fine for gaming. The Acer’s main compromise is the small diagonal when it’s stacked up against other screens in this group test. Still, it offers FreeSync, great...

Acer KG221Q

 

Not every gamer has the space for a big screen or the budget. The Acer KG221Q focuses on those that want a low-lag display at a very manageable scale, and a limited budget. Even at this low price, it manages to deliver a few surprises to our reviewer.

ACER KG221Q Full HD 21.5" LED Monitor - Black

 

The quality and sharpness of the screen image Ease of adjustment of the stand Ease of connection to PC Sound quality is adequate for most purposes but I link to external speakers Definitely good value for money

The monitor is very well built but the stand looks as if it might be on the light side if it were to be moved around a lot; I've not had the monitor long enough to have experienced any problems.
