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

    You realize that resolution IS the industry standard for 4K right?

    Make it 30-32 inches and IPS tech for under a grand and I'm sold but not until then.

    Zzzzzz....Wake me up when Acer has something new to say about their XB280HK 4K G-sync monitor. It was supposed to come out within Q2 2014, but it still has no announced price or release date.

    And the US price is without tax.

    Too expensive when you can get a Seiki 4k display for $340's that's also got a TV tuner to boot built in. This Acer display also lacks to mention it's refresh rate which is suspicious or at least concerning.

    These 4k displays are going to be cheap in another year or two anyway. Nvidia came up with a innovative way to stack 2 1080p displays essentially and turn them into 4k displays very cheaply. This artificial price fixing of 4k displays is going to drop out of sight in like 3 years max and everyone will have them for like $200-$250's that wants one.
