I guess "they" have decided 32" monitors are a thing of the past, while raising 27" monitor prices to that of the old 32's.

I have not seen any announcement of 32-ish sized monitors, so I guess I'll have to step down to a 27. Bummer.

I'll admit that if you're a 32" enthusiast, these displays won't do anything for you. Acer was focusing on 27" monitors with these releases, but that doesn't mean every monitor manufacturer has given up producing decent 32" displays.

I guess the rationale with the pioneering high refresh rate 4K monitors being only up to 27" are:

1) High refresh rates are most beneficial in shooters.

2) Large displays are not suited to shooters, because sitting close, you'll miss things happening in your peripheral vision, and sitting back, the advantage of the larger number of smaller pixels is lost - you're essentially wasting GPU power for pixels too small to distinguish instead of pushing higher frame rates.

I'm sure larger high refresh rate 4K monitors will follow.

So....Acer decided to drop the price from $2000 to just $1299? This is a 4K 144Hz G-Sync IPS HDR certified monitor, so why so cheap all of the sudden when compared to the identical Acer Predator X27 bmiiphzx?? Maybe there is a typo somewhere?

Acer didn't drop price - these are different monitors and far from identical.

  • ■the Acer Predator X27 is VESA DisplayHDR 1000 with quantum dot and 384 area local dimming
    ■this is just DisplayHDR 400 with no mention of the advanced features
It means if you care about HDR content, this one is of questionable value. My guess is this is mostly aimed at gamers who just care about 4Kp144 and the HDR was almost an afterthought, 'cause why not.

That's an easy answer for most gamers. HDR and Quantum Dot are NOT worth $700. For me, that's an extra $700 I can put towards the purchase of a 2080 or 2080Ti ;-) The truth is out there and I want to believe!
