I needed a second monitor for my laptop computer, so I purchased Acer K272HL BD monitor. The quality of the picture is excellent in my opinion (especially though the HDMI or DVI inputs). The highest possible resolution is 1920 by 1080, and the highest possible refresh rate is 60 hertz. The colors are quite vibrant, despite the fact that the picture has a somewhat overexposed look (which, however, may be adjusted). The contrast is excellent, there are no artifacts (motion, shadows, non-uniformities, etc.), and the matte (anti-glare) coating of the screen makes it possible to use it even in bright environments.
Text is easy to read and extremely well defined, even when it is presented in a tiny font size. Viewing angles are almost on par with those offered by IPS panels. However, the panel that was utilized for Acer K272HL BD monitor is not an IPS panel. Instead, it employs vertical alignment technology (VA), which makes it superior to earlier twisted nematic (TN) type panels but not nearly as excellent as IPS panels. The picture that is output through VGA is likewise extremely nice, but with somewhat less sharpness than the image that is output via digital inputs. Physically speaking, Acer K272HL BD monitor is very light for its size, and both the huge circular desktop base and the support have a great weight to them (it is also capable of being wall mounted with standard 100mm VESA).
When I considered the pricing (after the Christmas sale, $135 plus tax), I was pleasantly surprised to find that Acer K272HL BD monitor was far better than I had anticipated in terms of its appearance (slim shiny bezel, extremely small, etc.). It is important to note that this monitor does not include speakers or any other kind of audio input or output, despite the fact that it does have an HDMI input. Overall, a fantastic monitor for everyday use.
