Acer Announces Two New Contemporary Monitors with Frameless Design


TAIPEI, TAIWAN

Acer today unveiled two new monitors, the 27-inch S277HK and the 25-inch H257HU. Featuring frameless designs and 4K2K Ultra HD and WQHD resolutions respectively, they bring together stylish form factors with great functionalities.

The Acer S277HK has the distinction of being the world’s first 4K2K monitor to feature a frameless design and DTS™ surround sound. Besides giving it a stylish streamlined look, the design also maximizes its viewing area and provides a more seamless viewing experience for multi-monitor setups.

In addition, the S277HK sports a sleek hair-line aluminum bezel and a slim and contemporary looking asymmetric metallic stand that sets it apart from other monitors. The backside of the monitor features a white glossy finish that further adds to its elegance. For premium quality visual enjoyment, the S277HK boasts 4K2K Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution that is four times sharper than a 1080p Full HD display.

The H257HU monitor, also with a frameless design, is set apart with its futuristic looking stand with a distinct round rim base. The H257HU comes equipped with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, offering great visuals for video viewing, gaming and more.

Both monitors offer excellent audio capabilities with DTS™ surround sound as well as display quality with IPS technology, providing exceptional color saturation, color stability and 178 degree wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles.

What’s more, both monitors feature technologies that help to reduce eye strain and provide a more comfortable viewing experience. They include Flicker-less technology, which helps to eliminate screen flickering, and a blue light filter that reduces exposure to blue light that can potentially cause long-term eye damage.  In addition, they feature Low Dimming technology, which allows users to adjust to as low as 15 percent brightness in low light environments, compared to 30 percent found on standard monitors, and ComfyView technology that lessens reflection from external light sources.   
For easy connectivity both monitors feature DVI, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2.

The S277HK and H257HU monitors will be available globally and begin shipping in Q4 2014. To learn more about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office via www.acer.com.
