X-bit Labs reviewed five 20-inch and 21-inch displays: Acer's AL2021, NEC's MultiSync LCD2070NX, Samsung's SyncMaster 213T, Mitsubishi's DiamondPoint UX21LCD and EIZO's ColorEdge CG21. Here's a snippet:
The AL2021 has the typical looks of Acer’s business series of monitors, being the senior model in it. You should be already familiar with this exterior – it resembles the AL1721 model I reviewed in the article called Closer Look at 17” LCD Monitor Features. Part III . These monitors look very plain, the only difference from other manufacturers’ office monitors being the pretty labels on the buttons. These labels are placed on a narrow black panel under the screen and are highlighted with mild LEDs as you turn the monitor on. This looks quite pretty, I should confess. If the monitor is off, you cannot read the labels.
