Acer S277HK wmidpp White 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Aesthetically beautiful
4K 60hz over HDMI (with compatible video card)
Decent menu options
Thin Bezel with metal stand

Cons: There's two flaws to this monitor, one being a deal-breaker.

The first issue is similar to what was mentioned in previous review, the contrast is somewhat poor and makes images/text/colour appear somewhat dull compared to other IPS monitors (I have an Acer H236HL 1080p IPS that has better contrast and colour). It's not really washed out like a TN, just dull in comparison to other IPS.

The dealbreaking flaw is the light bleed on this panel. The bottom right and left corners have giant patches of severe light bleed and the top and sides have more minor patches of it. I find it unacceptable for a monitor at this price. (Again, I have $150 Acer 1080p IPS monitor with no light bleed). I would attribute this to luck of the draw or possibly getting banged around in shipping but I've read other reviews mentioning the same thing in the same spots. Bummer.

Acer B276HK YMJDPPRZ Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My initial review was meant to be 3 stars and I accidentally posted as 2 star so I'm updating with 4 stars after discovering a few things.

The buzzing emitting from the top of the monitor mentioned earlier seems to be caused by the speakers; you can get rid of it by turning the built in speaker volume to 0 but it will come back every time you restart your computer or power on. The fix for this seems to be to turn the volume up 1 in the menu and then back to 0 and the buzzing goes away again until you restart/power on again. Not an ideal fix but I'm glad it's just the speakers and not something else.

The ghosting/mouse lag I was experiencing seems to have been caused by a bad DP cable that shipped, because after swapping cables both issues are gone.

As for the uniformity issues mentioned, it's better after calibration but there's still noticeable dark shades around the edge of the screen especially noticeable if you fullscreen a webpage.

Overall I'm actually quite happy with it now despite my initial impressions.

Cons: Display uniformity
