Acer has introduced a new 27-inch Slim Line LED display and like its 24-inch predecessor, it is a looker.
The Full HD S273 features 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio, at least according to Acer’s PR specialists and it’s just 21mm thick. The response time is 2ms and thanks to LED technology it consumes just 17.1W of energy, which is about the same as an average fluorescent light bulb.
We like the sleek design, as it just looks different than most displays on the market today. There’s no piano black plastic or curved surfaces, but it will be rather hard to pair it up with a similarly designed desktop.
Prices start at about €440 in the UK market and this sounds like quite a lot compared to the 24-inch model, which sells for around €250. However, bear in mind that there are next to no 27-inch LED screens on the market today. On a personal note, I’ve tried out the 24-inch version and it’s pretty good, aside from the pathetic integrated speakers.
