Just ordered one to replace my current 2 1080 screens. Good price!

Personally, I'm holding out until freesync monitors hit the market to see what happens, but for anyone else this is a great deal!

Good price, but a bit of an awkward resolution for it's size, and being a TN panel is one compromise too many.

Still hot though.

Great price and very tempted. But I'm also kinda waiting to see what happens with FreeSync. Although that would also mean a new graphics card...

EDIT: Just noticed this has Picture-in-Picture, but also Picture-by-Picture. I wonder does that mean you could effectively use one screen as two monitors, moving windows between them...? Anyone?

If you used one physical monitor as two virtual screens and could move windows between them, both screens would have to be coming from the same computer... so why not just have one large screen? I could see how you might want to have each virtual screen connected to a different computer but you couldn't move windows between them.

No, I mean two pictures coming from different outputs on the same computer. I know you can snap windows left/right/up/down in Windows 7/8, and into all 4 corners on Windows 10, but when working with multiple windows, I tend to prefer two monitors. It's just a query really, to satisfy my curiosity. It might not be the most practical use of a 4K screen!

implementation depends on manufacturer, but enables you to use the screen real estate to show output from more than 1 source, e.g. your laptop and desktop at the same time, or a TV program while 'working'

I can't find a user manual for this Acer, but to see how it works, see pages 9-11 of the user manual for the Philips 40" 4k BDM4065UC which also has PiP and PbP and can show up to 4 inputs at the same time, so effectively 4x 20" 1080p virtual screens.

I have the Iiyama 4k for gaming and it's an amazing upgrade from 1080p. Very recommended at this price.

It must have been a eBuyer daily deal; it's showing as £359 for me today...

I saw the email that they sent out about this monitor and I also thought it was a great deal, but I don't think I am going to get it, as most of the things on the Internet about it are negative and also there is literally no reviews what so ever that I can find on YouTube.
Also the screen is said to be really lacking in color.
So, I am not going to rate up or down because I really don't know if it a good deal or not!
