Editor’s Summary:
  • Two new 34-inch ultra-wide monitors include Acer B346CK featuring QHD (3440x1440 @ 60Hz) resolution and the Acer B346C with FHD (2560x1080 @ 60Hz) resolution
  • Ultra-wide 34-inch IPS screens provide wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees
  • Excellent color accuracy with 100 percent sRGB and 6-axis color adjustment
  • Easy multitasking with PIP (picture-in-picture)
  • Superb connectivity via HDMI® with MHL charging, DisplayPort™ and a USB 3.0 hub
  • EPEAT Gold® rated, ENERGY STAR® and TCO 6.0 qualified

The ultra-wide screens and picture-by-picture capability make it possible to view large spreadsheets, brochures, newsletters and two documents side by side. Picture-in-picture capability enables customers to watch a movie in a box on the screen, while working on a project. Thanks to an IPS panel, wide 178-degree viewing angles enhance visual collaboration with others on joint projects.

“Our newest ultra-wide displays were designed for those who want the convenience of viewing graphic intensive content in sharp detail and without having to scroll to see the entire picture,” said Ronald Lau, Acer America senior business manager - peripherals. “The high resolution panels deliver crystal clear images, while an adjustable stand makes viewing comfortable. IT professionals will appreciate the excellent connectivity, energy-efficient design and VESA wall-mount for maximizing space and placement options.”

The new displays meet the highest standards for color accuracy with 100 percent sRGB coverage and 6-axis color adjustment. Both displays have a 21:9 aspect ratio, while the Acer B346CK delivers 3202 cd/m brightness and 1.07 billion colors, and the Acer B346C provides 3002 cd/m brightness and 16.7 million colors. A crisp 100,000,000:1 maximum contrast ratio and a 6ms response time contribute to the stunning picture quality. Acer ComfyView non-glare protection provides clearer, more comfortable viewing via a polarizer material to reduce reflections.

VESA compliant, the displays can be mounted on a wall to save valuable desk space and two 3W speakers provide quality audio. Optimized for maximum comfort, a multi-function ErgoStand provides tilt adjustable 25 degrees up or -5 degrees down, swivel 60 degrees to the right or left, and height up to 5.9 inches up or down. Connectivity options feature HDMI® with MHL for charging portable devices, DisplayPort™ and a USB 3.0 hub for connecting multiple peripherals simultaneously.

In addition to being ENERGY STAR® and TCO 6.0 qualified, the Acer B346CK and Acer B346C are EPEAT® Gold registered, the highest level of EPEAT registration available. Mercury-free and LED-backlit, these monitors reduce energy costs by consuming less power than standard CCFL-backlit displays and are safer for the environment.
