The monitors best suited for play and work are different beasts. Acer's new display, the ProDesigner BM320, is most definitely in the latter category. This 32" 4K monitor is aimed squarely at content creators simultaneously worried about color reproduction accuracy and having tons of working space.
Inside the BM320's thin bezel sits a 10-bit IPS panel that Acer says is factory-calibrated and offers 100% coverage of both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces. The company also mentions support for the Rec.709 and DCI-P3 color spaces, though it doesn't specify their exact coverage range. Acer does say that the display has an average delta-E of less than 2. The panel has a 3840x2160 resolution and offers a 6-ms response time and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The display's maximum brightness is a standard 350 cd/m²—nothing too eye-watering.
The display's back panel has one each of DVI and HDMI 2.0 inputs along with two DisplayPort 1.2 connectors. There's also a hub with four USB 3.0 ports. One particularly nice feature for this monitor is its ability to rotate a full 90° for a vertical display, in combination with its 150-mm height adjustment. The stand also offers a 30° tilt adjustment and 90° of swivel rotation. The display also packs Acer's usual loadout of anti-flicker and blue-light reduction tech.
All these features on a display that measures 32" across come with a pretty hefty price tag of $1,299. The BM320 is available right now at Newegg for a few bucks under that amount.
