Acer America is now offering its Acer K272HUL 27-inch WQHD LED display for consumers in the United States. The large screen size, wide viewing angles and ultra-high resolution deliver exceptional image quality on a big screen.

Boasting high pixel density with a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio, the new Acer K272HUL displays brilliant images for digital entertainment. In addition, the large screen is ideal for working with large spreadsheets and viewing the entire page of an online retailer with little to no scrolling. By enabling PiP using both DisplayPort and either a HDMI or DVI port simultaneously, it also supports multitasking whether it’s enjoying social media while watching a movie or comparing two Word documents. In some cases, it can replace a multi-monitor set-up. The picture-perfect display also offers wide viewing angles - up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically - to enhance collaboration with others whether it’s viewing slide shows, creating presentations or watching movies.

“We strive to continually raise the bar on the digital viewing experience,” said Edward Chan, product manager for Acer America. “Our new Acer K272HUL delivers ultra sharp visuals in a large screen for a great price. The large 27-inch display enables users to enjoy movies, videos and gaming in full screen and to work more efficiently by being able to see two documents at once. A wide range of users from students to photographers, will appreciate the superb image quality, generous screen real estate and wide viewing angles, which makes this model ideal for enjoying digital entertainment with family and friends.”

The beautiful Acer K272HUL provides a very high level of clarity with its high 16.7 million colors and a fast 6ms response time. Outfitted with Acer ComfyView, it reflects less ambient light to deliver vivid colors, reduced glare and more comfortable viewing, even over prolonged periods. It’s also VESA wall-mountable and the stand enables the monitor to be tilted back from 5 - 25 degrees for optimum comfort and ergonomics.

The impressive 100,000,000:1 maximum contrast ratio provides bright whites and dark blacks. Acer Adaptive Contrast Management (ACM) optimizes contrast to present the highest level of clarity and detail by analyzing every scene, adjusting images frame by frame, and enhancing gradation.

Offering an array of connectivity options, the Acer K272HUL is outfitted with DisplayPort, DVI and two HDMI ports for attaching multiple gaming consoles. It also has dual built-in speakers. ENERGY STAR® qualified, it adheres to strict environmental, performance and ergonomic design standards.
