Acer HN274H Review

 

Acer's HN274H is remarkable. Not only is this 27-inch display the first to incorporate the 3D Vision IR emitter into the display itself, but it also has HDMI 1.4a—so it's capable of being used with a Blu-ray deck or PlayStation 3—and a WLED backlight....

Expensive and black level could use a slight improvement

3D Monitor Shoot-Out: Acer HN274H & ViewSonic V3D245

 

There's no question about it: 3D technology is HOT right now. Whether you're ready to hop on the bandwagon or just want to keep on top of what's out there, there are two new monitors that should be on your radar, the Acer HN274H and ViewSonic V3D245....

Built-in emitters ; Glasses included ; 3D technology works with more than 525 games ; Plenty of ports on the Acer HN274H ; Latest 3D technology

Costly ; Acer HN274H takes a while to wake from sleep ; ViewSonic V3D245 base has a sizeable footprint ; No height and pivot controls on either monitor

If you're looking to upgrade to a 3D capable, 120Hz display, a monitor with an embedded 3D emitter and the latest 3D Vision technology from NVIDIA will appeal to you. For now, the Acer HN274H and ViewSonic V3D245 are two of the better options. Although...

Acer HN274H 27-inch 120Hz 3D Monitor Review

 

If you have ever sat with friends and discussed hypothetical situations, a question about what current technological marvel would you bring back in time as a means to shock and awe would eventually crop up. The uncreative answer usually involves...

3 HDMI 1.4 ports ; Built-in NVIDIA 3D Vision IR emitter on the bezel ; Excellent colors for a TN panel ; LED Backlight ; Single button Display input switch ; Built-in Speaker ; No ghosting on top and bottom edges while in 3D mode ; Excellent 2D and 3D...

OSD 3D notification would be better if it was smaller and if the "option to skip" text did not popup every time

It is 2011 and 3D is alive and well with the amount of manufacturers and software offering support growing constantly. It is also nice to see Acer with a new 3D monitor which blows away their previous model in terms of performance. Despite having a...

Great 3D monitor, works with AMD

 

with 3d TriDef, to get this monitor to work, you need HDMI, just run the monitor as a standard display type 3d stereo 60/120hz. beautiful.

This is a great monitor for the price, it cannot be beat compared to other active shutter 3D monitors that actually work with AMD cards. It comes decently calibrated, only needed some minor adjustments. 120hz 2D 1080p works only on DVI-D for those...

It does not support 3D 1080p at 60hz for AMD gaming at this time because hdmi 1.4a is limited to 720p 60hz(each eye) at the moment(hopefully fixed with firmware soon), this was expected though. The touch screen buttons are more to be desired, very...

Quick Initial thoughts...

 

Guess I need to do some reading about HDMI in use for monitors. CCC treats is like a HDTV. I can't speak to the Nvidia 3D aspect, I'll probably borrow a card from a friend just to try it, but it was not a reason for me to buy this panel.

Normally I'd wait a bit longer but I wanted to comment in regards to the guy who was asking about getting it to 120hz and the scaling ; Monitor is quite sleek, base is solid as well as the panel its self. Packaging is very good, no worries about...

The 'touchscreen' buttons on the panel to adjust monitor settings are, annoying at best. Cool idea but they are quite finicky. That's my only beef in regards to construction ; Now for the other issue, 120hz and scaling. (I'm running a Radeon HD 7850) I...

Good but...

 

I just want it to work.

Its arrived fast, it is very bright, all ports working and No Dead Pixels

Whats with the image sizing leaving boarders? I have the over scaling mazed and still have about 1/4" on each side ; Mine is only running in 60hz any anyone tell me how to enable the 120hz? I'm not seeing it in the ATI CCC and Windows is insisting on...

Dead after 6 months

 

After 6 months I come down turn PC on and there are lines down the screen and dead pixels. Not happy since this monitor was over prices in the first place. Now I have to spend more money to send it back. Very disappointing. I would look elsewhere for a...

Smooth while playing games

Color Adjustment would not stick while playing games.. This needs work

im in love

 

This monitor flippin rocks. I paired this with a EVGA GTX-680 4gb video card, running bf3 on ultra, 3D,, not even the slightest little tiny hiccup of lag ; Nvidea 3d vision and drivers are flawless, no more ati CCC crashing every 5 seconds ; System...

none yet

Awesome monitor!!!

 

If you don't want to run your games in 3d just press ctrl+t

3d ready with wireless glasses ; 120hz, great for FPS games ; easy to set up 3d for games and movies ; MY WIFE LOVES IT! Happy wife=happy life

Had to figure out why it would not run BF3 at full 120hz. Turns out it doesn't if you use the HDMI cord that came with it. Once that was replaced by the dual DVI everything was ok
