Acer is well underway with there 2016 Consumer Electronic Show announcements, but they have just unveils the R1, H7, and XR monitor series. All of these new monitors features premium designs and high-end performance, plus Acer’s EyeProtect Technology. This is meant to reduce eye strain and provide outstanding color performance thanks to the IPS panels with 178-degree viewing angles. But only the H7 monitor will be making its way to the United States, but it does pack some neat features.
For instance the H7 Series Monitors are the world’s first to support USB Type-C, allowing users to transfer data and charge devices all through one cable. This is a pretty big feature and I have a feeling more devices will be adding USB Type-C support throughout the year. Not only that, but it has a ZeroFrame design and a diamond cut brushed metal stand. It will come in either a 25-inch or 27-inch display sizes. They are WQHD displays with a resolution 2560 X 1440 and have Acer TrueHarmony and DTS Sound on board. On the back you will find the previously stated USB Type-C port, along with an HDMI 2.0 port. The H7 Series Monitor will start at $499.99 and will land in the United States come February. The H7 series will be landing in the EMEA in February.
The R1 Series is the world’s thinnest monitor as it comes under 7-millimeters in thickness. It will come in 21.5-inch, 23-inch, 23.8-inch, 25-inch, and 27-inch screen sizes. All of these will be Full HD displays with 1920 X 1080 resolution. They feature Acer Flicker-less and Blue Light Filter technologies along with a 5 to 15 degree adjustable tilt. In North America the R1 series will start at $129.99 and will land in Quarter 1, while in the EMEA the R1 series will land in January.
Lastly, the next generation XR series from Acer, the XR342CK monitor has an UltraWide QHD 3440 X 1440 resolution and a 34-inch 21:9 panel with a 1900R curvature. It features 6-axis color adjustment and DTS Sound for a deeper audio/visual impact. It also comes with AMD FreeSync technology which will help to ensure variable refresh rates for smooth tear-free experience in gaming and video playback. The XR342CK monitor will be landing in March in EMEA.
