Acer released a new 27" display this week aimed at the non-gaming crowd. The BE270U arrives with a focus on color reproduction and comfort instead of high refresh rates and low response times. This display uses an 8-bit 2560x1440 IPS panel framed with a thin bezel that won't distract from the content onscreen.
The display sports a maximum refresh of 75Hz and a 6-ms response time. For those working with photographs and visual media, Acer says the display covers 100% of the sRGB gamut and can crank the brightness to a fairly high 350 cd/m². The monitor offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments, and it can be mounted to an arm or a wall using VESA-compatible hardware, as well. Acer advertises a 178º viewing angle on both the horizontal and vertical axes, too.
The company also packed in all its technology meant to enhance viewing comfort. Blue-light filtering and flicker reduction are accompanied by Acer's "ComfyView" anti-glare tech. The display only accepts input via DisplayPort, but a built-in USB hub offers some peripheral connectivity. The Acer BE270U has a recommended price of $499.99 and is available now through sellers like Best Buy For Business, CDW, and Staples.
