Seems quite a good screen, love how they list "flicker-less technology" as a feature though, you could say that about every LCD screen ever made, the very nature of the technology (a constant light rather than moving beam in the old CRTs) means that none of them flicker!

Heat added:) 2k , 27" getting cheaper

Just ordered mine. Will post back here if there are any issues with the monitor

I've got an HP screen of that resolution at work. It's a great resolution for that size monitor. You fit a lot onto the screen without having to screw about too much with font sizes. Windows supports it well and you don't need an insanely expensive graphics card to drive it. 4K is too high res for 27" and needs a lot of graphics power. This should be very nice to use.

60hz?

60hz?



Yes according to CNET

Heat added. Ordered. I've been looking for a decent 27" 1440p and this is a pretty good price too!

It's Acer though. Expect light bleed and bad quality

what are the alternatives with these features at this price point though? I've heard mixed reports about the quality of Asus monitors recently. The Dell equivalent is about £60 more than this

I just sent an aoc (admittedly a cheap brand) the brightness / colours were bad. I'm hoping better things from this (fingers crossed)

No 4k. Too expensive. Minus

For me it was the other way round. Owned an AOC and an Acer with the same 28" 4K TN panel. The AOC I had absolutely no complaints about until the displayport input died a year and a half later (got it replaced under warranty). The Acer is still going but I wish it would die. No matter what settings I change all the colours from about 200 up to 255 merge together so it heavily oversaturates at the top end.

I wasn't really fussed about 4K. I already have 3 x 24" monitors connected but they are now going on my gaming cockpit. I wanted something that had a decent res without stretching it too much so this res is perfect.

Mine arrived today. So much better out of the box than the AOC. Colours are better brightness better. Had a quick play on GTA5 which looked great and photos look good too. Cheers OP

The flicker-free feature refers to the backlighting used to light up the LCD.
LCD's themselves don't emit light, they need backlighting from either LED's, or CCFL's. (Although you'll only find CCFL's in old displays now since it's all been replaced by LED's.)
LED backlighting on some screens has a flicker problem due to backlight dimming, since a lot of them use something called pulse-width modulation, PWM for short. Any screen that doesn't use that, is flicker-free.
The more you know huh
