As much as we lust after 4K monitors, we need all that cash for, you know, boring stuff like rent and food. For now, we’ll make do with screens that are a little lighter on the wallet, and today Acer has announced three new LED offerings for Joes and pros alike. First up is the T272HUL 27-inch multitouch monitor aimed at consumers, with a WQHD panel (2,560 x 1,440 resolution), 5ms response time and various inputs including old-school VGA. Arriving in late August, the T272HUL is expected to retail at around $ 999. Another 27-inch model, the B276HUL, drops touch support but sports the same WQHD res, a 6ms response time and a DisplayPort input among several others.
Intended more for pros, the 29-inch B296CL rocks a widescreen 2,560 x 1080 resolution, 8ms response time and the same connectivity credentials as the B276HUL. Both non-touch models are on sale now for around $ 599. In case you were wondering, all three displays have 178-degree viewing angles both horizontally and vertically — because if you’re not looking almost entirely at bezel, you’re doing it wrong. PR after the break.
