Acer jumps on the 4K Ultra HD bandwagon

Don't worry, your Full HD 1080p display isn't going out of style and will likely remain the sweet spot for a long time, but the transition to 4K Ultra HD on the high end of the spectrum is well underway. Even Acer's getting in on the action. Acer's foray into 4K territory starts with its new B286HK , a 28-inch monitor with 6-axis color adjustment for superior color accuracy, 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and 2ms response time.

The B286HK has a flexible stand that supports tilt (-5 to 25 degrees), swivel (60 degrees to the right or left), pivot, and height (5.9 inches up or down) adjustments. Alternately, you can mount the panel on a wall to save desk space (it's VESA compliant).

Other features include wide viewing angles of up to 170 degrees horizontal and 160 degrees vertical, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 1.07 billion colors with a 72 percent NTSC color saturation, built-in USB 3.0 hub, HDMI with MHL for charging smartphones, DisplayPort, and mini Displayport.

The Acer B286HK is available now for $600 MSRP.
