10 ways to find the best monitor

There are infinite ways to use a monitor: work, study and play are the obvious ones but our lives also include streaming, binge-watching videos and browsing the internet. Because of this, it’s fundamental you choose the right screen so that your digital experience is everything you expect. We’ve put together a list of ten simple steps to help you to choose the best monitor for you.

  • Pixels: size matters

    When it comes to pixel count, more always wins. We’re well beyond Full HD nowadays so ideally, you should be looking at 4K resolution and up. With a resolution of 3840 x 2160 px, the Acer H7 Series quadruples that resolution, meaning four times the details of old Full HD, four times the image quality, and four times the overall visual experience.

  • Consider flicker-free

    One of the truths about monitors is we spend more time in front of them than almost anything else in our lives, so it’s fundamental to choose one that protects the eyes at all times. Flickerless™technology reduces eye fatigue over extended working or gaming sessions, so you can comfortably read, browse, work, and play any brightness level.

Stunning from every angle

A quick look at the spec sheets of any monitor range will leave you in no doubt that not all LCD screens are the same. The best ones are equipped with IPS panels, which widens the viewing angle so that you can see all details and colours across a 178° span. Not only does that make it a lot easier to work in front of, but it also lets others see your screen from multiple angles.

  • Contrast and image depth

    Contrast has always been an essential spec of displays, but with HDR screens like the Acer H7 Series, it makes an even bigger difference. Contrast ratio is the measurement of the ratio between the darkest black and the brightest white a display can produce, and while most screens can do whites generally well, blacks and darker scenes are a different matter. To see colours as they truly are, look for VESA Certified HDR 600 screens.

  • Eliminate screen tear with FreeSync

    FreeSync is an adaptive synchronization technology that uses a variable refresh rate to reduce artifacts like screen tearing, stuttering and input latency (the time between when you move your mouse and when the cursor on the screen follows) for fast-paced gameplay and super- smooth video playback.

More screen, less monitor

The best visual experiences don’t come from staring at a screen, they come from watching what’s on it. That’s why technologies like ZeroFrame Design are so important not just for the overall design, but because they allow the monitor to disappear and the content on it to shine. Particularly useful when using two or more monitors together in a seamless set up.

The world isn’t flat

A 360° experience needs a curved screen like the Acer ET2 Series Monitors, which provides a far more immersive experience than a flat screen could ever produce. Curved screens wrap the action or your favourite movie scenes around your eyes at an equal distance, providing a far more realistic viewing experience and immersing you – quite literally, in the middle of the action.

Protect your eyes

Every digital screen also produces a portion of blue light, which may cause eye strain and affect sleep, so it’s always a good idea to reduce excessive blue light with technology like Acer’s BlueLightShield™. This technology reduces harmful blue light by adjusting colour hue and brightness, ensuring comfortable viewing, while caring your eyes at the same time.

Sound enhances the visual experience

Great visuals are one thing but for the ultimate visual experience, you need to hear what you’re seeing. With Acer TrueHarmony & DTS® Sound pumped through premium speakers, you can revel in lifelike 3D audio and high detail projection, and push your audio visual entertainment to the limit.
