Some people like them, some don't. You'll get feedback like this for any brand. Haven't heard about bad screens though, but then haven't been looking at Acers recently. Personally, I don't care for them.
is acer a bad brand?

Now personalty I don't like Acers but for the same reason I don't like Macs. I have a long history of dislike for both companies most of it personal preference that is not based upon fact anymore.

For the Acer screen, it depends on the extent of the damage itself. If it is physical damage then you would be able to see cause of this, like physical cracks and stress points around the screen where it has been twisted/compressed. Or you will find (what happened to me recently) liquid stains on the screen, which in my case was indicative of liquid spilling on the screen and running down into the insides of it... And yes I denied him warranty! If he asks for proof I will show him the photos where I stripped it down and inspected to cover our backs. It has been in the shop for over a week now and I think he still wants us to fix it, instead he gets hit with a service inspection charge. Tough on him but that's the way business works I guess, I've done the work and have proof that it's not a warranty issue, and my family need to eat.
Otherwise anything random which would be a defect of the screen itself would show no signs of damage and therefore would be claimable (if it's under warranty which should be covered, especially under Australian law, not sure about other country warranty laws).

First, if there is no sign if physical damage, and the screen lights up, I would suspect the video card and/or video drivers.
Try shineing a bright light on to the screen and see if you can see what is supposed to be there.
If you see the screen with the light than your CFB back light is burned out.
As far as the Acer brand, Acer, gateway, and Emachine are all made by Emachine. The components inside are lower cost (why you can buy a laptop for $299.00)
I would read the fine print to make sure that you do not have to sign a two year contract for any thing to get that price.
