Acer’s new flagship 27-Inch ultra-narrow 4K monitor has seen a debut on the Chinese market in recent days, being priced at 5,000 yuan ($816 US).
Designed to look seamless, the S277HK is a one of a kind. According to Acer, this model was the first HDMI 2.0 interface with an ultra-narrow frame 4K display – unfortunately for them, ASUS and Seiki beat them to the market launching HDMI 2.0 monitors of their own. This brand new product is supported by a strong aluminum frame to help it keep its composure whilst being as thin as possible. You’ll also be able to see that it looks rather sleek and modern with an (possibly) over-sized stabilizing base.
The S277HK offers users the ability to connect their device via DVI, DisplayPort 1.2 or Mini DisplayPort. Alongside this, the monitor contains DTS designed speakers, Acer’s EyeProtect ColorPlus technology and a top-notch color display. It’s reported that in December you should expect to see the Acer S277HK 4K monitor appear across Europe, the Middle East and African markets at a price of around $864 US.
4K TV and monitor options are becoming steadily more popular globally. We’ve seen YouTube recently up their support for this mode, alongside introducing 60 FPS streaming, DirecTV have started their 4K on-demand cable offerings and all major panel manufacturers are scrambling to pump out new models of 4K as fast as they can.
Is 4K something that you’re interested in, or is it a little confusing for you as it is for Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 developers? There’s no denying that it’s a massively hot-topic currently in the technology scene, but as it stands it’s extremely expensive simply because it’s new.
