Today at Newegg, the Acer Nitro ED270U P2bmiipx gaming monitor is available for one of its best prices to date. It usually goes for around $199, but today has been discounted to $169. This gaming display has plenty of specs worth getting excited about including a fast curved panel with a 2K resolution.
Acer's Nitro monitor is AMD FreeSync Premium certified. This signifies accurate luminance and a wide color gamut. It also has low latency, as well as support for low framerate compensation (LFC).
The Acer Nitro ED270U P2bmiipx gaming monitor features a 27-inch VA panel with a curvature graded at 1500R. It offers a 2K resolution, in the popular 16:9 aspect ratio, displaying 2560 x 1440 pixels. A maximum refresh rate of 170 Hz is supported, and the screen has a response time of 1 ms. Meanwhile, the maximum brightness of this monitor is 250 nits.
Users have a couple of video input options to take advantage of, including one HDMI port and one Display Port input. A 3.5mm audio jack is available for external audio connectivity, but it also has the convenience of built-in speakers. Purchasers are supported by a limited manufacturer’s warranty of 3 years from Acer, as well as Newegg’s 30-day return policy.

"2K" is 2048 × 1080 ... this monitor is QHD, plz you are a tech site can you stop help spreading wrong terms .Reply
More... this a a 170hz monitor, so clearly for gamers... but it's a VA panel... we all know VA panels = black smearing among other things ... i don't think recommanding a VA panel for gamers is a wise idea, even more when IPS panels are now not really pricer

both you and the article are correct.
it is 2k & it is also qhd.
Marketing of displays is annoying, keep it 1440p or QHD, I blame 4K/8K, which are well established, 2K is an abomination that should not exist, 1920 is sure close to 2k... which leads to confusion and perhaps misapplication of 2k to 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 displayshotaru251 said:it is 2k & it is also qhd.
I love the resolution, I hate VA panels... I drove one for 3 months, never again.
