The AL2032W is very complete. Of all the displays we tested for this article, it's the one with the widest range connectivity, including VGA/DVI, cinch, and S-Video.

Mixed Fidelity

The Acer AL2032W's color fidelity was only average. Few colors were perfect, in spite of the fact that 95% had a DeltaE of < 2.

For once, the brightness level was properly regulated. That's rare! The black level, unfortunately, was a little high compared to the best 19" monitors, and the result is a heavy toll on contrast. The contrast was quite stable, by the way, though we've seen better since. The contrast peaked at 30% and 70% brightness.

The color gamut of the AL2032W is compatible with the color space generally used on PCs, yet a certain weakness in the greens and reds is noticeable.
