PC monitor manufacturers tend to focus on a particular buzzword or acronym almost every year. In the past, we have been treated to HD (high definition), denoting the screen is capable of running a minimum 720p resolution.

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

27" Acer Predator, NVIDIA G-Sync, IPS, 3840x2160, 4ms, 350cd/m2, 1000:1, DP/HDMI, 2x 2W Speakers, 4x USB 3.0 Out, Black is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor 4k loveliness, excellent colour and response. I bought this to downsize from a 3440 x 1440 ultrawide and was really worried about losing immersion, but the 27" 4k has not disappointed. Gaming is beautiful, I have a grwat GPU which feeds the monitor at 60fps in almost everything via displayport. I was hugely worried that my work laptop would not be easy to read, or that the monitor would be too taxing (attached via HDMI), but actually it is just as clear and easy to use, reading and writing docs is a cinch. Monitor stand is great, very good adjustments etc, matte screen is very good, speakers are a bit weak, but I don't use them anyway, and not particularly weak (most monitors have pretty tinny speakers). Internal power is nice too, no brick sitting around is great. If you want 4k, its this one or the Asus (or the insanely priced new version... i honestly don't know what they could have improved), i chose this cos I like the slightly thinner bezel. Great monitr, well worth it actually.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good gaming monitor, but not for general work Bought this to use with a gaming PC and with an iMac Pro. Gsync works as advertised and the response time is good for gaming. However the IPS panel is grey and washed out when compared with the Cinema Display I was previously using and with the OLED TV I use for console gaming. Additionally the HDMI input is not HDMI 2, so 4K 60Hz over HDMI is not possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid Well i will never get a ACER monitor again, Firstly it turns up with 2 dead pixels and now the monitor keeps on disconnecting and reconnecting, It makes a sound like a USB has been disconnected then the screen goes black for 10 seconds before reconnecting and that isnt good when in a FPS game! When i pay £500 i expect quality not like the rubbish i have got, I will be refunding.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average performance but nice stand G-sync works well, no tearing but blacks have excessive light spill on the corners of the screen. Expect more for the price. Stand is sturdy and looks cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IPS glow galore My first impressions were good. Very sturdy mount. Well designed. Bezels look nice and thin. After a bit of fiddling with brightness and contrast the 4k image looked great. £600 great? I'm not sure but it was worth keeping! As I started to settle into the monitor playing some games I couldn't help but notice that every scene from mid to low brightness seemed to have a whiteish silhouette. As if I'm looking through a circle of clarity. I then remember the stories of IPS Glow. So I load up a black template and wham! Good lord! Now that I've noticed it I can't un-notice it. I've sent this screen in for RMA and I hope the next one will be better. I REALLY want this screen to be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant display Love it love it love it. Image quality is very very nice. 4k display is very nice but quad hd and full hd also look very nice and crisp on the display. Very usable as a desktop and gaming monitor. I use 125% DPI scaling in Windows and everything very readable. 100% is ok for me but not for my wife who has glasses for reading. Refresh rate seems fine and high paced games have no problem at 60hz. Some backlight bleed but nothing I can't live with and only noticeable if you're looking for it. So far no dead or stuck pixels which is also very nice. Sound is ok but has little bass, it's a monitor not a bose speaker so what do you expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb build quality and screen is beautiful Very impressed by this monitor and the technology is has built in.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am mostly pleased with it. It performs well in terms of colour rendition and gaming. There is one thing however, that bugs me, especially for £600. The bottom left corner has noticeable backlight bleed when displaying black. I've no idea about returns regarding this, so I haven't done so. I'd say though that it's much more annoying (to me) than a dead pixel or anything like that.
