It's amazing how much sellers are able to sell refurbished items for these days and how much people value refurbished items. IMHO a refurbished product should be no higher than, say, 70% of the new price.

Anybody having experience claiming the Allstate warranty that seems to come with all eBay refurb items? Are they actually legit or just BS

MSRP on this new is $450-500, so...it's about 70% of MSRP.

Alright here's my review on this monitor. I bought this last time it was slightly cheaper.
I would avoid this monitor for the reasons below:

1) Mine arrived with 2 dead pixels. Seller said refurbs are allowed 5 dead pixels. They did offer me a refund no problem but the dead pixel limit is not listed so if I had know I wouldn't have ordered.

2) The unit didn't come with a displayport cable, only HDMI. The stand is not height adjustable. Which means once I get a height adjustable mount/stand and a displayport 1.4 cable, I need to add another $30-50 to the price. It gets close to better monitors (see below)

3) This monitor has REALLY bad ghosting. I kid you not. I'm not particularly sensitive to things and I don't care if a panel is VA vs IPS. But my bro brought this monitor for BF and said he returned it cause he made him nauseous. I decided to try it for myself.
And the first day, I played Warzone for about an hour and the room was spinning for 10-15 mins after I finished, and my felt woozy the rest of the day.
After a few days I got used to it but the first 2 days I had a headache and major eye strain.

I ordered a Gigabyte G34WQC for $429 at BH ($399 with $20 rebate) instead. and I have both monitors in my possession so i figured I should side by side compare.
The Gigabyte is built better in everyway. It doesn't shake like crazy on a filmy stand like the Acer.

When I use testufo.com/ghosting to check ghosting, the Acer literally makes my eyes hurt and it makes me motion sick. Its super blurry I feel like if I stare more than a minute ill throw up.
The gigabyte is smooth. It has ghosting too like any VA panel but it's smooth and not at jittery.
When playing FPS games, esp like warzone with high FOV and you're moving around fast, the acer made me feel real queasy.

All in all, I'd say after you add in a price of a displayport cable and what not, it's worth it to just get the gigabyte model or an AOC.

I also got it too and didn't noticed the ghosting until I tried the link. I think it depends on use, I don't use it as much for gaming since it's hooked up to my Mac mini. I just wanted to add it doesn't include the mounting screws if you want to mount it. I ordered some from eBay for under $10.
I also noticed that DVI to HDMI doesn't work for me, I'm not sure if it's my cable I tried connecting it to my PS5 and Laptop, but it doesn't detect.

I did for my Acer monitor. Monitor stopped working after 30 days and Acer wanted me to ship it to them for repair (150$ monitor will cost 115$ for shipping) . I raised a claim in Allstate and they paid me 128$ for fixing the monitor. Won't buy from Acer any refurbished product but will buy the warranty from allstate again

yup, and it's not cyber monday. I got two then, as well. Doesn't change MSRP, so I'm not sure what your point is. It's 429 on bestbuy right now, for example.

I personally don't think it's worth more than 350-375 new, but it's a decent panel.

It's on sale at BB for 429, regular is 449: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer...Id=6457353

MSRP on Acer's site is 499 and it's 450-500 everywhere else unless refurbished.

I bought two of them Cyber Monday for $350 for my kids, which seems like a decent regular price for it, but that's not what MSRP is, either. It's "about" 70% of 500. It's really only a decent 350 panel, IMO.

Stay in school, kids.

Pretty good, just note that the brightness is pretty low. Not too bad though, very happy with it. Got it for $350 back then.
