Acer America is now offering its Acer K272HUL 27-inch WQHD LED display for consumers in the United States. The large screen size, wide viewing angles and ultra-high resolution deliver exceptional image quality on a big screen.

Boasting high pixel density with a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio, the new Acer K272HUL displays brilliant images for digital entertainment. In addition, the large screen is ideal for working with large spreadsheets and viewing the entire page of an online retailer with little to no scrolling. By enabling PiP using both DisplayPort and either a HDMI or DVI port simultaneously, it also supports multitasking whether it's enjoying social media while watching a movie or comparing two Word documents. In some cases, it can replace a multi-monitor set-up. The picture-perfect display also offers wide viewing angles - up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically - to enhance collaboration with others whether it's viewing slide shows, creating presentations or watching movies.

That is a pretty nice adjustable stand actually compared to most of the Korean IPS and PLS monitors off eBay...

good that prices are going down (1/2 year ago this thing would cost 800$+ at start), bad that this resolution will be outdated pretty soon. like - who was giving a F about HD monitors when fullHD hit the mainstream?... only those who did buy 400$ HD monitor few months before ;). I will wait for more UHD's and then prices will be more normal and it will last for several years (if not more - look how many years FHD was "the ting")

Finally, we see y1440 "for consumers". Wasn't long ago when this resolution was $1000. Nice to see better resolutions reaching ordinary budgets.

This.

Also, and I'm not saying it will be a guarantee or an advertised feature, but given the around 5.5->6.5ms response times on current 4k panels, it would make a whole ton of sense for UHD hdmi 2.0 monitors to unofficially support 120/144hz/+ at 2560x1440. Obviously displayport could eliminate the bandwidth issue and panel tech mature, but realistically I doubt we see over a 240hz 4k panel simply because of that reasoning. In essence, there will be a time (perhaps in relatively short order) when commodity displays are tailored for 1080p/240->2160/60 and I think that will be the 'ting' until newer standards and/or oled, 8k, etc.

While I totally agree 1440p native displays are the new transitional phase; figuratively and literally what 720p was to 1080p, and it makes sense to wait for uhd native in some iteration (if not a complete spec with the new color standards and what-not), I certainly can't blame anyone whom jumped on that boat when it was the new hotness, especially those that got in the catleaps etc on ground-level and/or 1440p@120hz working...as that certainly is and will likely be the sweet spot for a lot of people as far as resolution/refresh rate goes for some time to come.
