Acer announced a pair of new large IPS monitors, the 29-inch B296CL, and the 27-inch B276HUL (pictured in that order). The B296CL is an ultra-widescreen monitor with 21:9 aspect ratio, native resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels, while the B276HUL is a smaller 16:9 screen but features more pixels, with its native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Both displays offer 178-degree viewing angles, dynamic mega-contrast, 8 ms response times, energy efficient LED backlighting that offers up to 68 percent energy savings, and display inputs that include dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, and HDMI. Interestingly, both are priced the same, at US $599.99.
