Acer Announces the ConceptD CM2241W Monitor for Professionals

Creators in the visual arts, such as graphic designers and photographers, require a monitor that can quickly and smoothly perform tasks with a wide and accurate color range. The ConceptD CM2241W leverages an incredibly fast 1ms response time to support clear images and 99 percent RGB coverage to deliver bright, lifelike and professional grade colors. PANTONE validated, this display offers integrated color correction and superior fidelity in reproducing PANTONE Matching System (PMS) colors. Tested and calibrated to a low Delta E<2 rating means color reproduction is so accurate, differences are barely perceptible to the human eye.
"The ConceptD CM2241W provides creative professionals high color accuracy and a wide color range to assist them in creating visuals that are true to life," said Ronald Lau, Acer America director - stationary computing. "To ensure viewing comfort for long work sessions, it's supported by an ergonomic stand with a range of adjustment options and provides wide viewing angles."

The 1920 x 1200 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio with up to a 75Hz response time provides sharp visuals for creating graphics and editing photos. Featuring an IPS panel, the ConceptD CM2241W provides wide 178 degree viewing angles. A 350 nits brightness and 100,000,000:1 max contrast ratio infuse images with brilliant color and clarity and support the DCI-P3, sRGB, AdobeRGB, the Rec. 709 HDTV and SMPTE-C broadcasting standards.

16:10 aspect ratio is nice. 24" size is meh for creatives. 1920x1200 resolution is suitable for the size, but low overall for the application. "100% RGB" gamut is utterly meaningless - do they mean sRGB? If so, I guess this is okay for entry-level web-only creatives. As for "ergonomic functions" in the stand - what they cover seems to be the bare minimum IMO - it doesn't even pivot.

Overall: meh. Though I guess "meh" is actually rather good for something this obviously aimed at looking good.
