Computer monitors come in all different sizes and resolutions, and recently Acer introduced some of the largest without getting into the 4K range. The Acer T272HUL is a 27" monitor with ten-point touch support and a resolution of 2560x1440. It also includes a 5ms response time and HDMI, DVI, and VGA inputs, along with a USB 3.0 hub (two down, one up). To make better use of its multitouch capabilities, the T272HUL has a stand that can be tilted between 30 and 80°; perfect for touch-based games, browsing through photos, and surfing the Web.
Acer's B276HUL monitor is also a 27" screen with a 2560x1400 resolution, but drops the touch support. The 29" monster is the B296CL, which features a 2560x1080 resolution for that unique 21:9 aspect ratio. Both the B276HUL and B296CL include tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustment stands, along with DVI-D, two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, and a USB 3.0 hub (four down, one up). The B276HUL has a 6ms response time while the B296CL sports an 8ms one. All three monitors utilize LED backlights and an IPS panel for the best possible colors and viewing angles, so yes, things will look just fine regardless of what tilt you're using.
The T272HUL is expected to arrive later this month for $999. Both the B276HUL and B296CL are available now, with prices starting at $599.
