Question

does this monitor have adjustable viewing

The stand seems to fix the screen at an awkward, downward pointing direction. Is that intentional? Also it doesn't seem to adjust

Acer 20-inch Monitor: You are correct. Even tho Acer says it tilts 5 degrees forward and 15 degrees back, it does not tilt at all. Rather it leans forward, as you noted. I had to put something under the base at the front so I can see the screen. Tilting the screen by pushing on the sides cannot be done as it is in a fixed position. Hopefully Acer can change its incorrect advertising and inform its employees of this.

This particular Model does NOT come with speakers built in - you need to have your own speakers. You will need to spend more money and buy a more expensive model to have built in speakers (frankly I don't believe it is worth the extra money - spouse has a different ACER monitor with built in speakers and they sound very tinny, and are very cheaply made

Question

Does the monitor have DVI-HDCP capacity?

If so, is a DVI cable included?
Is the port DVI-I or DVI-D?
I have seen inconsistent information on the product overview and specs pages. Please clarify. Thank you.

No DVI cable was included. Don't know if the port is DVI-I or DVD-D. Specs in the User Guide don't indicate, and are rather sparse.

This particular monitor (SKU #8816192) does not feature audio outputs, so you would need to connect any external speakers directly to your computer or other signal source.

Question

Is there a way that I can use the DisplayPort option on my PC or did I make an error in purchasing this monitor?

Hello - I just purchased a desktop computer that has one VGA connector and two DisplayPort Connectors for a monitor. I also got the Acer S200HQLBD 19.5 inch monitor to go along with the desktop from Best Buy. In looking at the monitor info, I'm restricted to a VGA or DVI connection. Yes/No? Is there a way that I can use the DisplayPort option on my PC or did I make an error in purchasing this monitor (and should have considered another model)? I'm looking for a 20 inch monitor. Thank you very much for your time.

Simply purchase a Display Port to DVI cable and you will be able to use the DVI port on the monitor for the second connection. Last cable like this I purchased was about $15.00, used on several workstations for an upgrade project.

The Acer S200HQLBD has 2 inputs the older VGA and the newer DVI.
If your PC has 3 outputs I guess they are VGA, DVI and HDMI. So using VGA or DVI would good great pictures but the DVI is recommended.
Max LCD - 1600 x 900 resolution.
The monitor should have come with at least a VGA cable.

The mointor only has VGA and DVI connections. There maybe third party adapters that can accomplish what you want but we cannot guarantee that they will work.

Yes. The OS is irrelevant. It is your graphics card that will matter. Regardless, a Windows 7 machine will work with this monitor.
