Acer BE270U monitor is all business

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 2560×1440 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.

    CDW’s product description lists inputs as “2xHDMI (MHL), DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort”.

    Might have found a good replacement for the two Dell U2412Ms I have sitting on the desk in my home office.

    That bezel’s too thin for business, where are you meant to stick the post-it notes with the passwords?

      This is for the CEO’s office; he has someone to enter his passwords for him.

    Thin bezels??? Don’t we need thick bezels to allow employees to concentrate on their spreadsheets? What does BenQ have to say about this??

      Nobody ever really wants to focus on a spreadsheet anyway.

        They don’t? I thought some games even pop up a picture of a spreadsheet in case you need a nice relaxing break.

        Nobody except the boss. And guess who approves IT purchases.

          Business people are weird, but we already knew that.

    “framed with a thin bezel that won’t distract from the content onscreen.”

    My Display @ work is 19″ and have a VERY thick bezel, I’m not distracted!
    Confused maybe but not distracted

      Thin bezels are nice in multi-monitor setups. Otherwise, yeah, it really doesn’t matter.

      I would threaten to quit if forced to use a 19″ monitor.

        I just point out the amount of hours wasted discussing it vs the price of a reasonably sized monitor with decent resolution. It’s worked every time.

        I have tried that tactic Sir, no luck…
