Acer Announces Two New Monitors with a Frameless Design

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.

Availability
The S277HK and H257HU monitors will be available globally and begin shipping in Q4 2014.

A 1440p monitor that's 25-inch instead of the usual 27-inch. Not too bad.

As the day creeps closer and closer until I acquire a tv with such capability, the more anxiety I feel about 'when in the bloody heck is a graphics card going to launch with it?' I'd even take DP->HDMI2.0 if such a cable is possible (which I've yet to see).

I have a strange feeling I'm going be 'forced' to 290 crossfire, and learn to enjoy ~1080p120 and maybe some weird ~1440p60 cru interpolation for a year or so. Does anyone know if AMD does 4:2:0 4k60 similar to nvidia? Not a fantastic option, but it'd be nice if it's there.

Nice to be proven wrong that there is a 27 inch ips 4k display. Doesn't show up on panelook, so I assumed it would be AUO; meaning one of these options (which don't seem bad, and one can assume would be less expensive):

I understand that's not an all-inclusive list, as some manufacturers get 'custom' panel orders, but it's usually a good place to start as most seem to use generically available panels (granted sometimes over-driven etc to their own specifications).

Would like to know the price, I am tired of running frame compensation programs with Catalyst.

I know right. And this 'frame less' term is back again as a new buzzword, when in fact it's just another way of saying 'ultra slim.' Only OLED screens are frame less.

Besides, devices like Oculus Rift will replace a lot of consumer monitor use. As long as the headsets support 2D standard viewing, why would we ever use a high end monitor again?
