Acer announces the 27-inch S277HK monitor that brings together a stylish form factor with great functionalities for a premium audio/visual experience. It features 4K2K Ultra HD visuals on a frameless screen, super-fast HDMI 2.0 connection support and speakers with DTS® sound. It also has the distinction of being both the world’s first 4K2K monitor with a frameless screen, and world’s first 4K2K monitor with HDMI 2.0.
When placed side by side, two S277HK monitors present an ideal multi-monitor setup solution, offering a nearly seamless viewing experience with is frameless screen. With IPS* and Acer ColorPlus technologies, the S277HK’s screen provides exceptional color saturation, color stability, and 178 degree wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles. What’s more, it boasts 4K2K Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution that is four times sharper than a 1080p Full HD display.
HDMI 2.0 connectivity increases bandwidth up to 18Gbps to transfer 4K content at 60 Hz, for a smoother and tear-free viewing experience.
The Acer S277HK was designed with aesthetics in mind. Its stand is rather unconventional: made of aluminium alloy and positioned asymmetrically, it is slim, solid, and essentially different from the competition. The white, glossy rear-bezel is pure and ensures the monitor looks elegant from all angles. On the panel side, an aluminum hair-line front bezel and matt silver middle frame make the S277HK appear simple and sophisticated, while the dynamically styled speakers with DTS™ sound and venting holes give it a sleek, visually pleasant look all around. The design of the S277HK was also developed to enhance the user experience. Ergonomic features include the possibility to tilt the monitor from -5° to -15° backwards as to ensure the user’s line of sight is perpendicular to the surface or the screen, as well as intuitive buttons (Power, Brightness, OSD Menu and Exit) located in perfect reach while being discreet enough not to disrupt the viewing experience.
For users who need to view their monitors for extended periods, the S277HK is equipped with Acer EyeProtect technologies that reduce eye strain and provide a more comfortable viewing experience. It includes Flicker-less technology that helps to eliminate screen flickering, and a filter that reduces exposure to blue-light that can potentially cause long-term eye damage. The S277HK also offers Low Dimming technology, which allows users to adjust down to 15% brightness in low light environments, and ComfyView technology to lessen reflections from external light sources.
For easy connectivity the S277HK also comes with DVI, DisplayPort 1.2 and MiniDP.
