    Acer has introduced a new monitor to its line of offerings which brings a particular attention to design. The ED273 monitor features an eye-catching white and silver design, which looks at one time bold and elegant, and offers an interesting mix of features for the average user. The panel is a 27" VA, 1800R curved panel, which offers 1080p resolution, 60 Hz refresh rate and a 4 ms response time. Pair this with support for AMD's FreeSync (which every monitor should carry nowadays anyway), and the ED273 materializes as an interesting option for users that don't require higher resolutions nor breakneck-speed frames.

    Being a VA panel, viewing angles stay at the usual 178 °, while brightness is a paltry 250 cd/m2, which means that users who expect to use this monitor in bright environments should be wary. Contrast ratio is being touted as a 1,000,000:1, and display interfaces include 1x DVI-D, 1x HDMI 2.0, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, and audio jacks. The Acer ED273 monitor is available from Newegg for $199.

    27” and just 1080p? Pixels will be seen from 2 meters. Plus, curved design is “OK” for gaming only but it’s 60Hz only. In 2017.

    Acer's model numbers are terrible. Only the submodel #s actually indicate what model the monitor actually is.

    For instance, I have an XB270HU. But there are actually a couple XB270HU monitors, and to make sure that I was truly getting the better one was a bear to sift through information and incomplete listings.

    @Ferrum Master here is correct in the link he provided. Click on "Full HD (1920x1080)" and you'll see the one that this article is about.
