Acer Launches 28-inch 4K2K Display

Looking for a new ultra high definition monitor? Acer may have what you're looking for in the 28-inch B286HK LED-lit display. This new monitor is available now at Acer resellers and online retailers for $599.99. The display will also be made available in Canada later this month for $649.99.

"The Acer B286HK display delivers benefits to users and IT professionals alike," said Ronald Lau, Acer America business manager. "The premium UHD image quality, generous screen size and ergonomic stand provide a superb viewing experience that will be especially appreciated by those who work with graphics."

The specifications include a horizontal viewing angle of 170 degrees and a vertical viewing angle of 160 degrees. The specs also show a response time of 2 ms, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, a brightness of 300 cd/m2, and two 2 watt speakers. The maximum resolution is 3840 x 2160, and the screen delivers 1.07 billion colors with a 72 percent NTSC color saturation.

The display includes the company's multi-function ErgoStand, which allows the user to tilt, swivel, pivot and change the height. The display can tilt 25 degrees up or -5 degrees down, and it can also swivel 60 degrees to the left or right. You can adjust its height 5.9 inches up or down, and the display is also VESA compliant.

"The Acer B286HK display comes with Acer ComfyView non-glare protection that provides a polarizer material to reduce unnecessary lighting reflection for clearer, more comfortable viewing," the press release stated. "A crisp 100,000,000:1 maximum contrast ratio (1,000:1 native) provides excellent clarity, while the fast 2ms response time contributes to sharp images, critical for video."

This display includes an HDMI port that is MHL compliant, meaning MHL-compatible mobile devices can connect to it and receive a charge while the device sends audio and video to the screen. Also included is an I/O hub with DVI, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort and USB 3.0 connectivity.

    Gotta love how OEMs are calling anything close to true 4K - 4K.

    @PlatinumEra, even if our dollar was par with the USD, the monitor would still be more expensive in Canada.
    Further to ship + less supply + more expensive overhead = higher price
