Variable-refresh-rate tech is all the rage now, but it's reasonable to say not every user is a gamer. Content creation professionals need correct colors above all, and Acer's ultra-wide B346C and B346CK monitors are right up their alley.
Both monitors have the same 34" diagonal size and share more than a couple specs. Both have IPS panels that can cover 100% of the sRGB color space. Viewing angles are appropriately wide at 178 degrees, and content professionals can tweak color to their liking with these screens' onboard 6-axis color adjustment. No curves on these panels—flat is where it's at.
60-Hz maximum response rates and 6-ms response times are in keeping with these displays' content-creation focus. Connectivity comes by way of DisplayPort, an HDMI port with MHL, and a USB 3.0 hub. A height, tilt, and swivel-adjustable stand and a pair of 3W speakers round out the base package.
Where the B346C and B346CK differ, though, is in resolution and bit depth. The B346C has a 2560x1080 resolution and 8-bit color depth, while the B346CK aims higher with its 10-bit, 3440x1440 panel.
Acer backs these monitors with a three-year warranty. The B346C will set you back $600, while the fancier B346CK will sell for $700.
