I would love one of these… I recently got a 27” monitor but it’s only 1080p, UHD would be awesome..




Acer America has announced the availability of the Acer B286HK display for both consumers and commercial users in North America. This leading-edge 28-inch display features sharp images and exceptional color accuracy with an ultra-high 4K2K (3840×2160) resolution and 6-axis color adjustment.

The UHD 3840×2160 resolution has four times as many pixels as 1920×1080 Full HD, delivering exceptional detail, a perfect fit for consumers who enjoy photography and video editing and professionals requiring premium image quality, such as graphic designers, photographers, videographers, website developers and marketing professionals. A large 28-inch backlit LED screen is ideal for viewing large spreadsheets, brochures, newsletters and two documents side by side.

“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. IT professionals will be pleased with the extensive connectivity, eco-conscious design and VESA support for saving space.”

Excellent Ergonomics

The Acer B286HK is optimized for maximum comfort. Boasting a multi-function ErgoStand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment, the display can tilt 25 degrees up or -5 degrees down for finding the best view. It can also swivel 60 degrees to the right or left, while the height can be adjusted 5.9 inches up or down. VESA compliant, it can be mounted on a wall to free up desk space.

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. 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.

The display boasts wide viewing angles up to 170 degrees horizontal and up to 160 degrees vertical. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio, 300 cd/m brightness and delivers 1.07 billion colors with a 72 percent NTSC(1) color saturation, a combination that delivers exceptionally vibrant, detailed and high-quality imagery.

Offering excellent connectivity, the Acer B286HK comes with HDMI™ with MHL for charging smartphones, tablets and other portable devices. It also provides DVI, DisplayPort™, Mini DisplayPort (Mini DP) and a USB 3.0 hub, so users can connect multiple peripherals simultaneously.

Eco-Friendly Design

The Acer B286HK adheres to strict environmental, performance and ergonomic design standards. It’s ENERGY STAR® and TCO 6.0 qualified as well as EPEAT® Gold registered, the highest level of EPEAT registration available. It’s also mercury-free and LED-backlit, which reduces energy costs by consuming less power than standard CCFL-backlit displays. In addition, it’s mercury-free, making it safer for users and the environment.

Pricing and Availability

The new Acer B286HK display is available at Acer resellers and leading online retailers in the United States for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $599.99. It will be available in Canada for a MSRP of $649.99 later this month.
