Acer has announced three new ultra high-resolution monitors design to provide a high-quality computer experience.
Two of the three new monitors are touted as highly ergonomic, while the third is a touchscreen monitor compatible with Microsoft's Windows 8.
"Boasting high pixel density, these new monitors display brilliant images, ideal for presentations, digital photography, gaming, video and social media," Acer touts in the press release. "In addition, the large screens make them well-suited for productivity tasks, such as working with large spreadsheets and viewing two images at once, whether it's tracking email while creating a presentation, comparing two Word documents or viewing the entire page of a website with little to no scrolling. In some cases, these large displays can replace a multi-monitor set-up."
All three monitors pack IPS panel displays with 178-degree viewing and 1000,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
The 27-inch Acer T272HUL has a high-resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, officially touted as "extreme definition." This model can display 1.07 billion colors across the 10-point touchscreen and it also sports a silver asymmetrical stand and a clear plastic edge extending all the way down to the desktop surface. This monitor is designed for Windows 8 users who want a monitor able to provide an ultra high-definition experience.
The other two monitors are the B276HUL and the B296CL. The 27-inch model has the same 2560 x 1400 resolution as the aforementioned touchscreen monitor, while the larger 29-inch model has a lower 2560 x 1080-pixel resolution. Both models can display 16.7 million colors and both feature a base allowing users to rotate the screen into portrait mode. Both models also feature DVI-D, Display Port and two HDMI ports, as well as a four-port USB 3.0 hub.
The regular 27-inch and 29-inch monitors will sport a $599 price tag, while the 27-inch touchscreen monitor will cost roughly $1000. Acer has yet to release details regarding the monitors' exact availability. The company said the three models are aimed at the U.S. market and while no exact launch dates are available at the moment, the company did provide a "late August" timeframe.
