Acer America has announced the availability of its new Acer B326HUL WQHD LED 32-inch display delivering ultra-high resolution, significant viewing area and an ergonomic stand for professional customers in the United States.

The WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution provides four times the resolution of standard HD 720p. The high pixel density delivers images with excellent detail, making it perfect for advanced HD productivity and multimedia applications such as video, photo and presentation editing. The large screen is ideal for viewing large spreadsheets and the wide 178-degree viewing angles make the display well-suited for presentations and collaborating with others.





"The new Acer B326HUL display was engineered to provide commercial customers with a very comfortable and productive viewing experience," said Edward Chan, product manager for Acer America. "Professional users will benefit from the superb image quality and large viewing area that enhances collaboration and significantly reduces scrolling through spreadsheets. IT professionals will appreciate the excellent connectivity, power savings and VESA mounting capability that maximizes work space."

The new display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and 300 nits brightness. The crisp 100,000,000:1 maximum contrast ratio provides a high level of clarity, while the fast 6 ms response time contributes to sharp images, critical for viewing video. Featuring 100 percent sRGB, the Acer B326HUL provides exceptional color accuracy and with 6-axis color adjustment, users can customize the hues and saturation of each color. In addition, Acer eColor Management allows users to optimize image performance to best suit the viewing scenario.

The Acer B326HUL touts a clean design with venting integrated into the grooves for a sleek look and feel. A storage tray houses common office items and a magnetic surface on the stand base accommodates paper clips. It also provides a convenient smart phone holder and two 2W speakers. VESA compliant, it can be mounted on a wall to free up desk space.

Primed for Comfort
Acer ComfyView non-glare protection provides a polarizer material to reduce unnecessary lighting reflection for more comfortable viewing. The ergonomic design optimizes the viewing position for maximum comfort. Boasting a multi-function ErgoStand with tilt, swivel and height adjustment, the display can tilt 25 degrees up or -5 degrees down for finding the optimum view. It can also swivel 60 degrees to the left or right, while the height can be adjusted 150 mm up or down.

Offering an array of connectivity options, the Acer B326HUL comes with two HDMI ports, DVI-D (Dual Link) input, DisplayPort and a USB 3.0 hub, so users can connect multiple peripherals simultaneously.

Eco-Friendly Design
EPEAT Gold registered, the highest level of EPEAT registration available, the display meets all of EPEAT's required criteria and at least 75 percent of EPEAT's optional criteria. The Acer B326HUL is constructed of mercury-free, recycled material to reduce the environmental impact.

It's also LED-backlit, which reduces energy costs by consuming less power than standard CCFL-backlit displays. ENERGY STAR and TCO 6.0 qualified, it adheres to strict environmental, performance and ergonomic design standards.

Pricing and Availability
The new Acer B326HUL Series display will be available at Acer resellers and leading online retailers in the U.S. this month with prices starting at $899. It features a standard three-year warranty.

899? Jesus christ
Yeah, Acer is off their rockers to price it for that much since it's only a VA panel. And aimed at professional/commercial customers no less, lol.

It's huge for such a low resolution!

The only thing I like about it is non-glare.

I would love a 32 incher with 1440p, GLOSSY, specially for my games and movies. But not with this ridiculous price.

If I'm gonna pay 900$ for a monitor I'd expect at least it comes with 144hz feature.

How can you guys comment on the price of this thing, it's 100% sRGB, clearly aimed at photo and video pros.

^ Don't see what makes this better than a Dell U3011/U3014 which is full sRGB coverage, IPS (wide viewing angles) and has higher vertical resolution.

Should be priced less imo.

But it's a VA panel as opposed to an IPS. That's where the price and product don't match for the photo and video pros.

Interesting,.....

I still prefer the LG 21:9 34" 34UM95 at 3440x1440,..... That's more expensive though,.... ~$1500 USD.

If this were 4K then you got a deal,..... :)

In the US, the official price is $1000. The $1500 is import pricing.

They are stretching for positives when they talk about 4 times the resolution of 720p, a standard which was never used in monitors.
