Acer's 32-inch WQHD Monitor Books a Trip to the U.S., Costs $899 MSRP

Acer's 32-inch B326HUL LED monitor is now available in North America

There are a couple reasons why you might be putting off the upgrade to a 4K monitor. One is the technology -- it's not very mature at this point. The second is horsepower, meaning it takes one hell of a fast system to push all those pixels around, especially in gaming. Acer's compromise is the B326HUL, a 32-inch WQHD (2650x1440) display with 100 percent sRGB coverage.

For what it's worth, the spec sheet indicates a 100,000,000:1 maximum contrast ratio, 6ms response time, 178-degree viewing angle, and 6-axis color adjustment.

Other features include a built-in USB 3.0 hub, two HDMI ports, DVI-D input, DisplayPort, a pair of 2W speakers, smartphone holder, and a stand that supports tilt (25 degrees up or -5 degrees down), swivel (60 degrees left or right), and height (150mm up or down) adjustments.

"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."

Acer says the B326HUL will be available this month for $899 with a three year warranty.
