    Pros:
    -IPS
    -165hz overclock
    -Design (personal reference)
    -Price compare to PG279Q (here in NZ)
    -G-sync
    -Superb image quality

    Cons:
    -Poor speakers
    -Only two inputs

    Superb gaming monitor combine with G-sync make it that much better.

    It's hella nice. Colours are good (expected from an IPS panel), no abnormal backlight bleed (bear in mind all IPS panels have a small amount of intrinsic "glow", it's just the nature of the technology). No input lag to speak of, the high refresh feels amazing, without ghosting, and g sync makes games feel so much smoother even when the frame rate dips. Overwatch looks and feels incredible on this monitor. Haven't tried the "overclocking" feature as 144hz is already ridiculous. Highly recommend

    Went on reviews here on this screen. Felt like a safe purchase but oh what I deceived me. What a shit!

    The positive:

    + Good picture, it's IPS so it was clear and nice colors. No strange things
    + It is possible to adjust well in all joints.

    negative:
    - It screams 14-year-old gamer about it, I already knew that, but I thought I could live with this.
    - Massive backlight bleed in all four corners
    - Really poor construction quality
    - As a result, it leaks light between the panel and frame, it is so poorly built that it does not seal in between. It's totally unacceptable in my world with a screen that costs 6-7000: -

    This went back to the store within a week. Will be driving on with my Dell ....

    Bought one at Elgiganten for 6490kr which had only a little glow on the lower section of the screen.
    Left it back when I also bought a similar one on inet.se for 5990 SEK instead and it unfortunately had even more glow / blb. Has a little glow in all corners but is only visible if you have a TOTAL black image in principle. If you still have an open purchase then maybe try it for a while and see if it is so bad that I want to change / return.

    + Great colors and viewing angles thanks to IPS
    + Fantastic flow in all games and overall thanks to 165hz (changed from a 4k 60hz samsung) really worth spending extra for it if you play games!
    + g-sync - absolutely NO screentearing at all.
    + easy to mount
    + stylish design and thin edges around the panel (ugly log dock)
    + good stable foot

    -BLB / ips glow one can expect more or less.
    - A little silly design on the foot even though it is stylish
    - clumsy and inflexible menu in the screen's built-in settings
    - The predator logo is very nonsense
    -The price should be cheaper considering the serious problems with blb / glow and also that it has been on the marble since 2014/2015 without any price reduction.

    Had not blb / ips glow existed I had apart from everything else and given top marks.

    latest exet purchased at Inet.se for 5990 SEK on Black Friday.

    Update: Left back and bought the TN version instead. Noticed any remarkable difference in image quality so definitely not worth paying extra for IPS which also gives horrible glow. Hence the lower rating because the price should match its problems.

    Really nice screen! Slightly half-dull menus compared to ASUS counterparts, but my copy had no noticeable BLB, and Glow belongs to IPS technology so you'll have to wait. Phenomenal flow, really nice colors directly from the box, stable stand. 27 "format may feel fussy compared to the 34-inch beginnings, but has now been sitting and working a lot in documents and feels that the size is far enough thanks to high resolution.

    The most complete all-round screen on the market right now.

    Went from 60Hz 1080p 24 "IPS to this. What a difference! When I run my old favorite game, it's like discovering them again.

    Drive the screen at brightness 20%, there is no dangerous backlight bleed or something like that. IPS should not run at maximum backlight!

    You need to set up 144Hz in both Nvidia and Windows control panels for it to work. Compared to ASUS PG279Q, I do not think the difference of 500kr + is motivated. One big plus is that the net layer is inside the screen, ie no big lump like with PG279Q. The menus are full enough and the red foot is used to fast. If you find it on a good sale but the foot feels unmanageable, buy a VESA 100x100 foot in another design. Also, did not have any strul with supplied cables, ie no pat or hack what I can see.

    Absolutely wonderful screen, went from 24 '60hz to this, no what a difference. bought it on Elgiganten for 6490. It has no mistake what I have seen, no black light bleeding or the like and the colors are clockwise. Have used it for both gaming and for work, works super for both purposes.

    If you are picky and want the best, then this is the right screen.

    As previous writers, this model suffers from several quality problems and, despite that, they continue to be traded.
    NOTE!
    For some foul reason, they have tricked up the price with a total of 1300 kr! In just a few days.
    Therefore, look for another replacement. My is returned and is currently looking at a ViewSonic XG3240C.

    Gone from TN and VA 1080p panels to this, incredibly good colors, no noticeable backlog, as with my previous VA panel.

    Bought this because of the borderless design, over ASUS and AOC's variants, and it looks really good. Have heard a complaint about the thicker edge at the bottom, but think it's nice to keep in mind when adjusting the screen.

    The menu could be a bit better, I really think about the button system. ASUS seems to be the best on the front, with their "joystick" on the back. However, there is one aspect that had no influence on my purchase decision as I use the menu very few times.

    My copy has very little BLB, no dead pixels, etc.
    In the lower right corner, it can sometimes be felt by completely black pictures, but there is really nothing that interferes.

    Would definitely recommend this screen by itself, it is undoubtedly the best screen I had. The price is a little juicy, but you may expect to assume these specifications.

    A little about the specifications:

    1440p seems to be "The Sweetspot", between eye candy and performance requirements. With my GTX 1080, I can basically run everything in 1440p, with high fps.

    165Hz feels a bit more like a sales word than any real bonus, very little difference between 144Hz and 165Hz, but definitely a nice bonus.

    IPS provides incredible viewing angles, not much to say about it except that, if you have previously been on TN panel, this will give a whole new experience.

    G-Sync, not much to say about it, nice to not tearing, even though I did not have much tearing before switching screen from one without any adaptive sync.

    About a year ago, I bought an Asus ROG Swift PG279Q, the screen had a huge amount of backlight bleed. The company I bought from online COMPLETE would definitely not let me return the screen, since they felt it was normal! So we talk so badly a lot of light that I bothered every time it was a dark picture. After an incredibly long process of really hard support, they approved my return, but said that I would have to pay mass fees if they received the screen and thought it was normal amount of bleed. This caused a lot of worry and of course, it was difficult before my account was refunded at 8000kr. I have been waiting for screen development (new models), but when Elgiganten put this screen on REA, I dared to try again because Elgiganten has 30 days of open purchase. So, got to try the screen and then leave again. I'm shocked. There is hardly any bleed at all and no dead pixels. Here I am with enormous / surreal flow in games and unparalleled color winning and am so badly satisfied. A hot tip if you want an IPS screen with 165hz and good resolution, buy from a company that offers open purchase. The complete process I never want to experience as a customer.

    For 5990: - (black friday-rea) this is an excellent screen, but at the slightly higher normal prices it feels like there are probably options. Above all, the design is a bit too "gamer", and it also has some quality flaws like backlight bleed in one corner. Nevertheless, it performs extremely well, has fine color rendering, and G-Sync is an extremely useful feature. After calibration, it looks as good as my old 27 "iMac, whose screen was absolutely perfect.

    Full pot, with two deductions for fancy design and poor quality control.

    Clearly the best screen on the market we purchased (Aug 2017).
    Has always been tired of the eyes, sometimes a little headache after a few hours of playing before.
    I do not feel this anymore anymore, but can sit almost for a long time

    I have absolutely nothing to complain about regarding my copy that is completely free of dead pixels, etc.
    A little blb is out there in the corner, but I have NEVER seen any IPS screen that has been completely free of this even on CES now in January 2018, I saw somebody who was.

    So you play a lot and can afford, then this is the screen for you ...

    Awesome screen, it has everything I currently have on my wish list:
    * IPS
    *> 144hz
    * 27 "
    * 2560x1440
    G-Sync
    * Low response time (for o being IPS)
    * Good reviews

    Does not have much to compare with in the same segment, I switched from a first-generation 22 "TN panel and the difference is not surprisingly huge!

    Also appeared to have got an ex without defects, no solid state, or dead pixels. Not even partially dead. no visible blb. Manufactured October 2017

    Stable o good foot with a lot of metal in, the red feet are metal.

    The only minuet that goes off a star is that I do not really dare the look. Would rather have a more sober screen without "Predator" log and red foot. But unfortunately, it does not seem to be possible to find a screen with the above-mentioned requirements where the design language appeals to people over 15 years. I am a little ashamed when I have people over and they wonder why there is "Predator" on my screen instead of "Dell" or "HP". But what do not you do to get a good gaming experience.

    NOTE needs to be calibrated properly, does not look good right out of carton, many guides are available.

    bought for 5995 on middle day sales.

    Nice screen, buy!

    Bought on black friday for 5990: -

    Never had a screen with higher than 60Hz and you know what difference it is. Everything is smooth as butter on this screen.

    No dead pixels and minimal back light bleed on my copy. On a completely black background you can see a little lighter shades at the bottom of the right corner at a slightly higher brightness (30-35% was a reasonable level), but nothing is normal in normal use.

    The menu system was not as bad as many people said, but it is not used to it often, so I do not think it's a good idea.

    Can not comment on the function of the foot when using a VESA mount mount, but it is not very nice.

    Draws a stick because the price is still a little over.

    Best screen ever! Picked one from Elgiganten on Black Friday. Must say it is nicer and bigger than it seems to be. Were on Asus pg279q but decided to do this because of the narrow frames that make the screen look nice and slim out. Many people say they are disturbed by the predator brand but nothing I notice because dark red and you do not really see it. Also the menu is the many who complain and believe me it's not as difficult to navigate as some say, certainly the Asus screen has a lighter joystick there back but there's a pillar on the screen that shows the navigation so it's easy and how often are you menu?

    If you are hesitant do not make a good screen and good looking then go shopping!

    The only panel that has everything I want at the moment.

    My wishes: 27 "IPS display with G-sync that has 144 hz and 1440p.

    + Incredibly good picture quality. Good black / brightness.
    + G-sync makes marginal difference. Absolutely nothing but definitely nice gimmick.
    + Nice - however, my girlfriend mocks me that the screen is a "gauge screen" - The pratate text with red metal foot is a bit overkill.

    - The price, the display should rather cost 4990: -
    - Little wings foot. When I get to the desk, the entire display wobbles.
    - A couple of dead pixels.
    - IPS glow, though nothing remarkable. Never bother me but it's there.

    Summary: Investing! Keep your thumbs that you get a good copy.

    My ex had no dead pixels and was able to watch at 165hz, unfortunately my ex has a lot of BLB so I'm pulling a star because of it.

    Tears of two stars because the screen can only be clocked to 165hz, would have more.

    -1 because the menu is impractical, bending to change the brightness, etc.

    +1 because the foot is of fine metal, it is still and nice.

    Would not really buy this but there are no other good options now, g-sync I have not used yet.

    Perfect gaming screen! After testing two Asus PG279Q that had terrible BLB (back light bleeding) and dead pixels, I decided to test this Acer, and certainly it was full. Finally a screen that has no dead pixels or BLB. After thinking home and loading a complete calibration, color reproduction was even better.

    + 27 "1440P
    + IPS
    + 165 Hz
    + G-Sync
    + Height adjustable, pivot function, tiltable, rotatable.

    Have now tried 7 screens of this model and the conclusion is that the price is way too high for a rather mediocre quality. 3 out of 7 screens came with scratches in the image area and 7/7, ipsglow was mainly down in the right corner but often in other corners. Experienced clouding fields in the lower and upper middle of 3/7 screens also. A screen did not even make it possible to attach the footrest when the screw was not threaded.

    Colorfully, the screen is comfortable to look at with a good height / decrease function and that it is aesthetically pleasing in addition to the red foot that I would rather have in a more neutral color. The DP cord is only 1.5m so got to invest in a new one longer.

    The problem is that the ips glow is so strong at higher brightness that it can not be overlooked when you have a static desktop background of the darker option as well as in games.

    The conclusion is that the screen without ipsglow and scratches was still relatively expensive but with these phenomena, all 7 screens returned to the store at a fast pace and I will wait until the quality is raised, all the price drops considerably.

    A big screen but an optimal resolution. 4K options are a bit too high resolution.
    Good for gaming and regular use thanks to good color reproduction. But the liter of very uneven color rendering over the panel and that it has a large "glow" from the bottom corners.
    Menu button that does not sound like it should - difficult to respond to pressure.
    Problem but an input connector that is loose. MAO miserable quality for such an expensive screen

    Bought from Elgiganten for 6290, -
    The first copy sent from the online store manufactured in June 2017 had terrible IPS glow in the right hand corner. Solve half the screen area, even during the day and clearly even though the image was bright.
    Went to the store and switched to one that was manufactured in December 2016 and got a lot less IPS glow, it still seems but much less. Clearly satisfied now and have no thought of changing again.

    Everything else besides IPS glow is top trim with the screen, highly recommended if you might be able to swap it once or twice to get a good ex.

    Bought my Elgiganten for 6290kr.
    Manufactured December 2016.

    In my opinion, a very good screen when I got a nice copy without backlight bleed and IPS glow.

    Has "calibrated" the screen without tools and is very pleased with the colors.
    The only thing is that I did not quite get on gamman, it's too high, but nothing is seen in normal use, but only when using calibration images.

    One negative is that the menu buttons feel very plastic and clumsy, sometimes feeling like breaking them when pressed.

    Edit 2017-09-10: Thought I had some IPS glow in the bottom corner, but it turned out to be a reflection from the white stove at the wall behind me hehe.

    I got my hero without backlight bleed or other such screen problems I read a lot about, it's amazing.

    However, it has its shortcomings and mistakes, I've had a lot of trouble with the screen going to no signal when I play different games what this is because I do not know but for a while it was really bad then I could not play any games at all for As soon as I entered a game, it became no signal until I managed to get out of the game again.

    very strange problem but it got better after I switched DP cord now it happens in single games for a few seconds in the beginning only.

    For such an expensive screen, this is not acceptable, but I had no other problems with it so I chose to keep it.

    But apart from that problem, it's an incredibly good screen, 144hz ips it's the first time I'm experiencing it (now I've had the screen about 6m) and it's very nice!
    g-sync is also very good, but I do not know how to judge it I guess I never had anything laughing or tearing in games so I can say it's super duper then! :)

    My last screen I had to sit for hours and change settings to get colors and candles right but also there is this screen almost flawless, the colors are very good (if you are going to do a job that requires exact colors, you may have to set it) only the brightness that was a completely crazy high was almost hurt in the eyes the first time I plugged it in.

    quite easy to mount wherever it is, the color and the frame on the screen are very discreet and the predator brand is nothing to think about when it's running but the foot may not fit everyone and can take some space.

    Buy this screen if you find it on sale, I got it for around 6000kr if I do not remember it was when it cost closer to 8k normal price it was not worth it but 5-6k is reasonable.

    I have tried with three copies of this screen and was not satisfied with one of them. In all three, there was a orangaktig discolouration in the corners that appeared when it was darker tones of the image. There appeared when it was bright colors. I do not know if it would be classified as IPS glow or backlight bleed but it was annoying. Several of my games have dark sections and the orange discoloration was disturbing.

    My poor rating is mainly due to it so if you are someone who does not bother you at such or are ready to return several screens until you win the lottery screen so it can still be a good screen. I'm just not prepared to spend that much on a product I'm not satisfied with.

    Have the tvångig level compared to the screen for two weeks now with my 8 year old 24-tummars 60Hz TN screen for about 2000 SEK BenQ. I've looked at pictures, photo is my biggest hobby, working in Word and played (Far Cry 4, Shadow Warrior 2, DOOM) with my GTX 1070. My screen had no defects like dead pixels or obvious clouding, natural light or otherwise.

    Positively
    1440x2560 is a nice resolution. I noticed the difference especially in office work, less at stake.
    144Hz is pleasant at stake. It is easy to believe that 60Hz is silky. But no.
    Stylish and adjustable in all phases
    decent build quality

    questionable
    G-Sync: played with G-sync on and off (always +60 fps) and looking for tearing / stutter etc. without having found anything. G-syncskärmar 1500-2000kr are more expensive than their Freesync diton and it will be worth it, you need of course be able to see any difference. My recommendation is to try before purchase. Besides eliminating the fixed-sync tearing from my old screen (available in the NVIDIA profile inspector during the "vertical synchronization"). Recommended all.

    Negative
    Very poorly calibrated from the start. Min had an ugly yellow-green stick. Should be calibrated properly before you decide if you like picture quality
    Amazingly give my old tn screen better image quality when viewing still images

    In summary, a screen that has the most and delivers good. However, it is no wow experience and I think it is too expensive (bought mine 8000kr) for what you get. Dealbreakern for me was that my old tn screen delivered better picture quality photo viewing. Returned.

    An incredibly good screen simply that I am fantastically happy with. Bought it in November and has not experienced any quality problem at all. Operates with a GTX1070 and canapés around 90-100 FPS in BF1, and it is actually a very big difference in the float at 100-165 Hz compared to the classic 60 Hz.
    To get the last star had, however, I wished for a slightly lower price (bought it for 8000 just before it showed up .. 6500), somewhat longer cables, either speakers that can be used or none at all (these sounds embarrassingly bad - worse than a mobile speaker) and a foot that looks like a foot (but I run on a 'iiglo MM200' arm instead and am really).

    Bought an example from Elgiganten for 6490, in November deal. I'm very picky when it comes to screens and TV. Before the purchase I read some negative feedback on this model from the earlier part of the year. Was a little worried, but it turns out that Acer has fixed to its quality problems. My ex is made in August 2016 and is nearly perfect. Something brighter corners possibly one cm in a completely dark room, but it is so little that it does not affect anything. I am very pleased.

    Edit: If you get an ex who has little light transmission or light spot above the Predator logo on the bottom of the screen so it may help to slightly loosen the screw on the back of the monitor. In my example, there was initially a 4 cm 2 cm fairly strong light fields. Then I loosened the screw disappeared problem.

    Edit 2: Three weeks later. Almost so I want to display that last star. Now I have calibrated, there's a forum thread on Overclockers where a guy also have linked up windows a calibrated color profile, if you load it in and set up the screen as he writes - Holy shit!

    Had this screen for a few months now that replaced my previous Samsung S27A950D.
    The screen had a lot to live up to because I thought Samsung's display was superb.
    In order to throw me to the point I can immediately say that it differs very much on these screens at almost all points.
    I think it's hard to get any really good blacks with the Acer Predator screen. It is always a bit of light no matter how you change the front and back of the picture settings.
    Samsung was much easier to bring down the light on but rather suffered from the screen itself was mirrored and reflected like a mirror, which this does not in any way at all uncomfortable.
    The picture quality is almost unfair to compare as this is an IPS and Samsung was TN. Do not misunderstand me, Samsung was amazingly good for a TN panel, but this is on a completely different level simply (takes, however, with the price in the calculation, I must say that Samsung have been very successful with its S27A950D).
    I can even see the difference between 144hz and 120hz which was what I had hoped that they would do. I think I get a lot less trouble with tired eyes in general of this screen, which is a big plus as it can easily become that you usually sit for longer periods than you should.
    I think I notice the same problem as many others have the on / off button does not work 100%, I have chosen to connect the monitor to a power outlet with a switch to get around the problem, although it clearly is not optimal for a screen costing close to 8000: -.
    There are many good tips online for different picture settings for the Acer Predator, and in the end it's usually just a matter of taste and light conditions in the room.
    All in all a very well-balanced display that probably does not disappoint purely pictorial.
    Purely in terms of price, it can be a bit of juiciest team which probably has the most to do with G-Sync, but otherwise I have difficulty finding excessive deficits (not counting the blackness).
    Recommended ?: Absolutely!
    Top class ?: I do not ...

    With an IPS panel can be unlucky with "IPS glow", and as with all LCD displays can have bad luck with dead pixels. I pulled on the other hand the winning ticket, and have not found any dead pixels and has minimal "glow". The screen is fantastic!
    Easy overclocking via menu gives me 165hz, and together with G-sync has given me a game feeling I've never experienced before. Everything is silky smooth!
    My previous screen was also a good IPS panel in 1440p, but it had not G-sync and was only 60hz. To avoid having to use v-sync while having higher framerate can not be underestimated.

    After some adjustments and pill spirit with settings, there is really nothing to complain about when it comes to image quality. Good colors and 1440p're all so much more enjoyable to watch. I have never loved to play so much on my monster of a computer as I do now with this panel from Acer. With that said, I choose to deduct a couple of stars for three reasons.

    The design, albeit hefty, feels slightly "ostentatious", not to say vulgar and screen buttons do not respond well, sometimes not at all. The menus feels unorganized in any way. The options do not seem to be in the order you expect and sometimes hammering it down the most sluggish corresponding buttons in what feels like an unnecessary landscape of functions that should be software-based instead. A screen with this price tag should give total satisfaction to all as a screen can be expected to deliver, so when such a basic thing as buttons letting you become just pissed off, feel a little forced to yield and, if possible, even poorer.

    Fantastic with G-Sync.
    1440p at 27 'is a feast for the eyes and a must for a discerning "gamer" with demands for image quality. It also performs in 144hz (165 oC) with a response time of 4ms, making it a formidable peacemaker between praising the fast TN panels 1080p and the one that requires the color and nuanced IPS panel at 1440p. Predator gives us any time easily the best of both worlds.

    Incredibly good display that delivers an excellent image for a hefty price. Are you in mind to invest in a real gaming screen such as this, make sure to have plenty of horses under the hood for otherwise the experience will be the same as for the much cheaper alternative to the screen.

    Has gone through two copies now, and yet, unfortunately, not been without flaws. A great disappointment with the thought that this screen to be one of the best options in the current situation. Here is a summary of each copy, advantages, disadvantages and problems of these screens had.
    Besides, the screens are fantastic, perfect picture quality and very good gameplay (if you ignore the problem). Nothing beats an IPS screen with good color and 165 Hz.

    Anyway, here is my experience.

    Screen number one.
    Made: October 2015th

    + Uniform colors (example: Whites were completely white without any color shift or the like).
    + Very good image quality, it is entrusted everything a 1440p IPS screen.
    + Blue light can be turned off (LED light on the start button, which can fix the settings. It turns off after about 5 min of use).
    + HDMI support.
    + Speaker, yes, what can I say, two fairly kelna speakers that are great to use at the lack of another.
    + Build quality. Easy to assemble, good with the VESA mount.
    + Very grateful to ACER has listened to its customers, then they have removed the old shiny frames. Matte black, as it should be!
    + Very thin frames, ideal for multi-screen projects.

    - Two dead pixels! (very annoying!).
    - Menu keys working only occasionally, tough response.
    - Bled part, called Backlight Bleed. (Bled in all four corners, the worst in the upper right corner. Synthesis from a long distance and is already at 20% brightness).
    - Problems with orange / yellow glow of the two corners, the so-called IPS-glow. This "disappear" if you look from a different angle.
    - Setting menu is quite extensive, it gets a little messing. But it is not completely impossible to understand.

    Screen number 2 has basically the same benefits as screen number one.
    Made: October 2015th

    + Attentive less Backlight Bleed (it was minimal at first, see note below).
    + Menu keys are functioning as they should.
    + Almost no yellow-haemorrhage? (IPS glow).

    - A stuck pixel, visible in blue backgrund.
    - For a start like bled screen quite a bit, but that changed dramatically after about 2 hours of use. Right corner, both upper and lower, had very much silverkatig bleeding (BLB), synthesis even at low brightness (20%).
    - White color was not white. It may sound strange, but so be it. Completely white screen had very "warm" color, almost yellow color. Tried to change the settings without further improvement.

    Conclusion.
    The screen itself is a very good screen with many advantages. For me it was the return for both. I thought that they were paying too much money to "accept" or allow such serious deficiencies. Nearly 9000: - costs screen, then one wants it to be perfect (or at least failed). One can argue that it is difficult to get a perfect IPS screen without any bleeding, but I pay that much, so it feels wrong to just accept it. Some have actually been lucky and gotten flawless copies, there is a chance!
    I wait so long and hope that the ACER fixes these problems. In the current situation, I can not give more than 5/10.

    Absolutely stunning display. In the beginning, I noted (with a dark room and black image) might liiite weak BLB in the upper left corner, but it feels like it's basically gone now, at least I think never in it even when it's very black on the screen.

    Take the time to calibrate the screen (at least, Brightness, Contrast and RGB) with the help of tips from the forum or with a calibrator if you have one - from the beginning, eg, Brightness very high set which of course amplifies any "imperfections."

    Can add that I first ordered two running side by side, but when I realized two screens was too wide for my room I handed back the other. I tried to run with the first two, and while there was no obvious BLB on the other nor I noticed something that may have been a pixel stuck. It was difficult to see with the pixel density of 2560x1440 at 27 ".

    After the problems with the two Asus PG279Q that had huge quality problems with skrämpanelen I decided to take a chance on this XB271Hu and finally! No blb (backlight bleeding) problems, ie it is black across the screen area, wonderfully thin screen edges, which makes it almost becomes eager to acquire two pieces to. : P

    The only thing I can have opinion about the screen menus are a bit troublesome but how often is it there and caterpillar, calibrating it as you want it then you are never there anything more and then we have the "ugly" feet like Acer for some reason wants to but when the screen is VESA standard so you can solve fairly simple.

    No hesitation on, an obvious purchase if you are in search of such a display. :)
