Acer 2k
 
Anyone used one of these?

Got one coming tomorrow. Going from a iiyama va panel I'm not expecting great things from the colours. Hopefully the 2k and 75hz makes a difference

I would send it back and get this.

Best "budget" screen around atm IMO. I wouldn't touch anything made by Acer with a barge pole.

Oh =(
Well I'll give it a go and if I don't like it it'll go back. Missed the postman so will have to pick it up tomorrow anyway

Using an Acer TN 2k at the moment, though it's the X27 so it probably has completely different characteristics...

I like it though, 2k resolution really at 27" is the sweetspot at least in my opinion, I've had both 4k 28" and 1080p 24" before. The colours aren't great but once you get used to them and don't have an IPS as your second monitor, it's all golden as long as your work doesn't require accuracy. :P

No seriously dude don't even open it. That 32 is where it's at. It's bigger, and it matches the Acer on everything. Seriously this is a long term investment don't short change yourself over a tenner. 32 really is that much better. You can also drive the 32 to 4k when you are running less demanding games, which is just amazing.

looz trust me a 32" QHD is better than any 27" screen. I went from a 27" screen to a 32 and it is so much better. 1440p is the sweet spot too man.

Eh, 32" is getting kinda low in the PPI department. I can make out every single pixel quite fine as is, I'd have to set up a 32" monitor further away. :P
