2 out of 5 eggsSome QA Problems.

Pros: Great screen real estate. Excellent blacks. Color reproduction is spot-on. Great stand.

Cons: Dead Pixels. Reverse ghosting which may or may not be a problem for some users.

Other Thoughts: I bought this during Cyber Monday, as I had been keeping an eye on monitors of this size and resolution. I was disappointed to find a dead pixel near the center of the screen, where it would be highly visible and annoying. I sent it back for a replacement, and the replacement has TWO stuck pixels. Bright red and bright green.

Acer needs better QA. I recognize that monitors can develop pixel issues over time, but with problems right out of the box? No thanks. Two in a row makes me lose confidence in the manufacturer.

3 out of 5 eggsNice but almost unusable

Pros: Solid build quality, good black levels and no backlight bleed or glow (one benefit I've found with VA panels over IPS).

Cons: Any movement on the screen seems jittery and has weird discoloured ghosting effects (running native resolution @ 60hz). Gaming is a big no on this monitor which is disappointing even for someone who only plays casually. Asphalt 8 was nearly unplayable, so I imagine most others would be too.

Advertised as having 178/178 viewing angles which may be true to some degree (pun intended), but in actual fact there's so much colour shift I'd say it's only a little better than a TN panel.

Other Thoughts: Didn't buy this on Newegg but shop here often. I got it for $599 on sale and I'll be returning it.

I don't understand the logic behind creating a massive monitor which would be perfect for gamers and movie watchers and then crippling it by not implementing user overdrive adjustment. It seems it was made specifically (and only) for professionals and businesses who would use a monitor in a mostly static image environment (spreadsheets, design, display advertisements, etc). Shame.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works but limited functionality and unfinished firmware.

Pros: -Compatiple with 2560 x 1440 Rez using the HDMI port (alas at 55Hz refresh rate, a HDMI limit)
-Accepts Custom Rez of 1920 x 1440 at 60Hz sharp 1:1 pixel mapping. Great for General use and Web browsing.
-Flicker free backlight at lower brightness levels, aka No PWM. Yes!
-Video Connectors are located closer to desk surface so I can run shorter cable lengths.
-Design and finishes are decent and adjusting the monitor height is fast and easy.
-Mine came with Zero Dead Pixels and seems to be well color calibrated out of the box but I haven't checked with my colorimeter.
-USB3 in all Ports and can charge pluged devices even if the monitor is Off

Cons: -No 1:1 pixel mapping function so anything lower than full resolution is automatically scaled up or stretched resulting in a fuzzy, low contrast, interpolated mess.
-Bad Firmware. There is a User Custom Mode but almost all the Settings you change there are carried over the Predefined Settings, this is obviously bad, unfinished firmware and is unacceptable in a $600 Monitor.
-Auto Mode shows up as a choice on the OSD but that is only a function for Monitors with Analog Inputs and there is no D-Sub port!! Looks like Acer Copied & Pasted the Firmware from other Monitors and forgot to edit that one out.
-Pathetic Documentation, the PDF Manual is incomplete, the index even list a nonexistent VGA Mode and there are more pages dedicated to regulatory compliance than describing the Monitor Settings. Some of the functions are up to the Users to figure out since the manual doesn't explain it. I went online in case the documentation was updated and finished but couldn't find it.
-The Stand can Swivel Left-Right but it does so with the whole base so you need more clear space on your desk if you do this often.
-Speakers are terrible, can't reproduce Bass at all, my iPad Mini sounds much better, no kidding.
-Pointless Magnetic area (for metal clips?) at the stand base. A Liability, keep Hard Drives away from this area.
-The Stand base surface has grooved lines which is a dust trap and hard to clean or wipe off.
-No support for useful Custom Rez like (2400 x 1440), (2160 x 1440) or (2048 x 1440) which are the highest that most Laptops can support at 60Hz through the HDMI port. Yet the Monitor supports 640x480 and other useless ancillary resolutions of decades past.
-At 1280 x 720 (Exact Half Rez) you would expect a simple Pixel Doubling to fill the screen so it looks like a sharp native 720P panel but unfortunately it doesn't, it just does fuzzy interpolated stretching like the others modes. It would have been nice to use this at 75Hz or when you need everything larger for presentations, meetings, play 720p content, fast FPS games, etc.

Other Thoughts: Note: This is just an update since Newegg doesn't allow Reviews editing.
My review was based on a computer using the HDMI connection.
As you might know HDMI has its limitations when it comes to Resolutions higher than 1080P.
My Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 17R SE. It is powerful but has no DisplayPort so WQHD at 55Hz is the maximum it can go.
I use this Full Resolution when working on CAD Projects and Photo editing but is overkill for general use and Web browsing so I also use a lot 1920 x 1440 60Hz, turning this monitor into a 26" 4:3 Aspect equivalent for better eye comfort and reduced power compsumption. Most Web pages are designed for less than 1920 Pixels wide anyways so this is great.
Make sure though the Monitor's "WideMode" setting is set to "Aspect" for sharp 1:1 mapping with this Custom Rez.
Also the Timing Standard should be set to "CVT-RB" when creating Custom Resolutions for HDMI to work.
For 75Hz nice-on-the-eyes refresh rate the highest rez I could get was 2048 x 1152, usable, but it is soft since the monitor automatically scale it up.

After my research I was ready to buy the BenQ BL3200PT (same panel as this monitor but loaded with features) but this Acer showed up $230 cheaper during CyberMonday so I bought it as a temporary fix while I upgrade in the future to a computer that can easily support 4K monitors.
This Acer is not a bad Monitor, it works, but I wouldn't pay regular price for this one when there are much better options like the BenQ.
So... Acer deserves 3 Stars because they should have done a much better job.
Newegg deserves 5 star for the amazing price and service.

3 out of 5 eggsBare bones 32" WQHD with some limitations.

Pros: Works at full 2560 x 1440 resolution using the HDMI port and Intel HD4000 Graphics (alas at 55Hz refresh rate, not at monitor fault)
It also accepts 60Hz 1920 x 1440 for 1:1 pixel mapping.
Flicker free backlight at lower brightness levels, aka No PWM.
Video Connectors are properly located closer to desk surface so I can run shorter cable lengths.
Design and finishes are decent and adjusting the height is a snap.
It came with No Dead Pixels and seems to be well color calibrated out of the box but I haven't checked this with my colorimeter.

Cons: There is no 1:1 pixel mapping function so anything lower than full resolution is automatically scaled resulting in a fuzzy, low contrast, interpolated mess.
No support for (2400 x 1440), (2160 x 1440) or (2048 x 1440)resolutions which are the largest resolutions that most of todays laptops can support at 60Hz through the HDMI port.
At 1280 x 720 (Exact Half Rez) you would expect a simple Pixel Doubling to fill the screen so it looks like a Native 720P panel but unfortunately it doesn't, it is just fuzzy interpolated scaling as the others. It would have been nice to use this at 75Hz or when you need eveferything larger for presentations, meetings, 720p content, etc.
Documentation is pathetic, it even talks about VGA port when there is none and there are more pages dedicated to regulatory compliance than describing the settings. Some of the functions are up to the users to figure out since the manual doesn't explain it. I went to check online for a more in depth documentation but that doesn't exist.
The monitor can rotate Left-Right but it does with the whole base so you need to clear more space on your desk if you do this often.
Speakers are terrible, can't reproduce Bass at all, my iPad Mini sounds much better, no kidding.
There is a pointless magnetic spot at the base so you have to keep Hard Drives away from that area.
The base surface has grooved lines which is a dust trap and hard to clean or wipe off.

Other Thoughts: If you want 75Hz refresh rate the maximum rez I could get was 2048 x 1152 but it is soft since the monitor automatically scale it up.
For the most part I'm using 60Hz 1920 x 1440 resolution when I dont need the full rez, turning it into a 26" equivalent monitor for better eye comfort. Make sure the Monitor is set to "Aspect" in the "WideMode" setting though or it will scale it up and distort.
My computer is a Laptop Dell Inspiron 17R SE. It has no displayport so WQHD is the maximum I can go.
I was ready to buy the BenQ BL3200PT (same panel but loaded with features) but this Acer was $230 cheaper during Cybermonday.
The BenQ would be the one to get even if it is $200 more though. It has VGA port, Ambient, Rotation, User sensor Newegg deserves 5 star though for the incredible price and service.

5 out of 5 eggsOooh Cyber Monday...

Pros: Oh yea...$399! Cyber Monday, and I think the best deal of the year. I got mine early...I should of ordered 3.

-HUGE monitor. Perfect size for gaming.
-Resolution: 2560 x 1440 Love it. Very sharp picture.
-I was a little concerned about frame rates while gaming at this res.....No worries. My good old GTX 590 pushes the res great. Bioshock Infinite on this beast is just flat out awesome.
-Stand: VERY VERY good. Up, down, rotate, tilt....Everything you need.
-Color shift? Not seen it.
-Picture is VERY good. It took a little tweaking, brightness down and contrast up a little, but the Picture looks great
-I've not seen any tearing with the 6ms...shrug.

Cons: hmm, UPS sucks. Suppose to be 3 day delivery, but took UPS 4. It was on their truck and the guy just didn't make it to us. I guess the only 2 issues I would point out is:
1. Picture presets are weak. You will want to manually adjust the brightness and contrast, but the colors look great. No need to mess with those.
2. Screen has an anti-glare coating. It works...very well, but as with all anti-glare screens, it tends to slightly dull the picture. Honestly, on this monitor the effect is very slight, but it is there so I mention it. Having said that, if this ever goes on sale again or you want to game at 32"....this is a GREAT choice.

Other Thoughts: I could not bring myself to spend $800 on any monitor, but I had my eye on it big time at $599......at $399 it was a no brainer.

FYI I am a gamer....other then some surfing and email I GAME on this thing. Keep that in mind when reading my review.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally a Acer Monitor that I like..

Pros: Ditto John N's review exactly.

I've bought some smaller Acer' LCDs for budget-conscious customers over the years. I've come to know that they have a good price/value ratio and are reliable.

At first I was hesitant to invest in this monitor for my own use, thinking it was going to be substandard in some way. I didn't want to get "quality-cheap" on myself for a business tool that I use 8-10 hours a day. Well, that thinking was just flat out wrong. I can't think of anything negative to say about this monitor.

So . . . 5 Eggs it is!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I only noticed the color shift when I have a completely solid color screen; like the blue screen I see before the Win8 logon dialog. Since that's a rare occasion, no egg deduction for me.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally a Acer Monitor that I like..

Pros: Well, the cat got out of the bag. This was one of Newegg's Best Black Friday deals. A few of us lucky devils paid under $400 this this large screen. So with that said it is a nice monitor for the money. The Stand is heavy and moves up and down with ease. Watch the video that Newegg put out earlier in the year it is a excellent review. No dead Pixels, I am happy with the deal. I should have bought 2 more to make a 3 screen Nvidia surround setup up.

Cons: I agree with the other 2 reviews the speakers are there, but I will not use them. Most of us probably have external speakers anyway. So I am not even taking 1 egg off.

Other Thoughts: The Color shifting that people have noticed with this Monitor is there, BUT most users won't even notice it in less they already have a IPS Monitor. I don't play fast action games so I can't help you out there. Would I spend $700.00 for a Monitor no, but if this Monitor goes on sale again I will buy another one in a heart beat. I bought this for Flying FSX... If you are a Flight Simmer you will like this Monitor.
