Acer America has announced that its Acer H257HU monitor with a brilliant WQHD resolution and a stunning zero-frame design is now available for customers in the United States. This premium display’s high WQHD (2560x1440) resolution shows four times more detail than HD, offering a high-caliber visual experience for viewing movies, games and more.

Progressive styling features a beautifully-crafted brushed metal, diamond cut stand and a slim, aluminum front bezel.

Thanks to the IPS screen, the Acer H257HU delivers clear and bright 178-degree wide viewing angles horizontally and vertically.

Further complementing the brilliant visuals and stunning design is first-class audio technology. Built-in DTS™ Sound heightens loudness without escalating distortion as well as boosting both bass performance and vocal clarity. Plus, Acer True Harmony fine-tunes and improves the frequency balance to deepen the impact of movies, games and music with improved bass and multidimensional sound.

“First class in form and function, I highly recommend that customers looking for a premium display consider the Acer H257HU,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America business manager. “Its delivery of ultra-sharp and smooth imagery is sure to please graphic designers and photographers, while its dynamic audio performance is a significant benefit for movie buffs and gamers.”

Comfortable Viewing
Acer EyeProtect technology incorporates several features that make prolonged usage by heavy users such as programmers, writers and graphic designers as comfortable as possible. These include: Acer Flickerless technology to help eliminate screen flickering through a stable supply of power; Acer low dimming technology for lowering the brightness setting to reduce eye fatigue; and Acer ComfyView to limit reflections from ambient light sources on the non-glare display panel.

Built-in 100 percent sRGB color gamut technology provides the high caliber of color accuracy and color space reproduction required by design professionals and visual enthusiasts. In addition, 6-axis color adjustment enables them to easily adjust color, color temperature and saturation.

The provision of 16.7 million colors, a native contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a 350 cd/m2 nits brightness contribute to the delivery of exceptionally vibrant, detailed and high-quality imagery. The Acer H257HU also has a quick 4ms response time and a super sharpness setting option to optimize image quality.
