Acer Removes Flicker From Prosumer Models

Acer’s prosumer CB display range, which began with the CB280HK (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 30), has grown with the addition of the CB270HU and CB290C. Both feature Acer’s flicker-free backlight technology, sRGB gamut coverage and an ergonomic stand. The stand provides 150mm height adjustment, -5 deg to 35 deg tilt, 90 deg pivot and 120 deg swivel.

Both monitors feature DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI ports as well as dual speakers. They have a 6ms response time, 178 deg viewing angles and show 8-bit colour, but use different panel types: AHVA on the 27″ CB270HU and IPS on the 29″ CB290C.

The CB270HU has 350 cd/m² of brightness. Its resolution of 2560 x 1440 provides a standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Its 29″ counterpart has 2560 x 1080 resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio.

Acer is selling its new CB-series monitors now, starting at €335 ex VAT.
