We hadn't tested an Acer monitor in a while. Today we're looking at the AL2032W. This is a 20" monitor in movie format that's clearly multimedia oriented. Let's see what it can really do.

Design And Finish
The Acer product's looks are in stark contrast with the Sony MFM-HT75W we tested above. Yet the monitor's finish, in shiny black plastic, is not without appeal. The unit's shell is well designed. It's handsome to look at, even if the materials are not top-quality.
There's not much to say about the adjustments of the shell. The panel has a tilt adjustment with a fairly limited range. The OSD is fairly clear, but there's no remote control as on the Sony model.
