This WQHD panel also comes packed with an ergonomic stand and multiple ports for a number of connectivity options.

    Uhm nice try Acer but for about $300 more you can have a 16:10 2560 x 1600 display like mine. I don't do 16:9 sorry. My next display is a 16:10 4K when they fall under $1500.

    16:9 just sucks. I have 3x30 16:10 monitors and would never go back. Unfortunately, websites are not designed for widescreen and video editing is better with the menu bars visible on top and bottom with video on full screen. Any kind of production work, 16:10 is better and 4:3 is best for web and office documents.

    And Seiki has a 39inch 4K screen for $499. I can't wait until they incorporate HDMI 2.0 then I'll switch to 4K. Assuming they don't jack up the price.

    At this price you are better off gettin a 2560x1600 30 incher. You will spend a couple hundred more but it will be more useable. If they could get this one down to 600 I'd recommend it.

    Yea, I had my two Dell U3011s a few years ago for around $900 each. Man I thought by now I’d be trying not to buy a 30” OLED for as much. I like 2560X1600 with 16:10 so much better for games and work. Movies are better on the 16:9 Kuro. With the Kuro I’m also waiting many years longer than I thought to upgrade.

    Why would I buy this when I can get the Asus ROG Swift for $800?

    The Asus has the same resolution, a better response time, 120/144hz instead of 60hz, 3D Vision Support, light boost equivalent, and G-Sync. All for $100 less.

    What gives?

    5 inches of diagonal? The ROG is a 27 inch monitor. So, yeah, pretty much no comparison to the much larger Acer panel this article refers to. Some people want gaming qualities and others want a large screen.

    That's way more reasonably priced at least and yet still overpriced.

    I still don't know who is going to be willing to spend $899's for a 32-inch display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution aside from rich pricks and a handful of businesses that could really benefit from it. You could buy like what 5-6 1080p 32-inch displays at that price and get a hell of a lot more screen resolution real estate. Monitor makers must think consumers are completely stupid.
